Mais uns videos…

Mais uns tantos videos que encontrei aí pela rede nas últimas semanas, e que já tendo partilhado no Facebook, aqui ficam mais uma vez – para quem não frequenta as redes sociais, para quem perdeu um ou outro, ou simplesmente para quem os quiser rever…

Começo por este feito pela RodaGira, um passeio de amigos, muito cool

RODAGIRA & Friends from Fábio Luzia Gonçalves on Vimeo.


No Youtube, esta animação deliciosa não tem qualquer descrição, mas vale muito a pena ver


Este videoclip para a música “Note” dos Claris Color Rate tem um ambiente fantástico

No Flickr, podem ver a colecção de fotos feitas na sessão de filmagens


Já coloquei aqui a versão curta deste video há muito, muito tempo. Mas uma vez que a marca agora já tem representação em Portugal, vale sempre a pena ver o video completo. Uma história bem contada, com música excelente, e com bicicletas… na Velo Culture

The Flying Pigeon Bicycle from Yulu Creative Communications on Vimeo.


Mais uma banda a fazer um video com bicicletas – são os City {On} Fire, e fica a curiosidade de terem feito 3 videos diferentes para a mesma música – esta é a versão que nos interessa

The Road: By Bike from CITY {ON} FIRE on Vimeo.


Falado em Húngaro, mas legendado em Inglês (clicar em CC) – vale a pena ver a apresentação do Áron Halászon, do Hungarian Cycle Chic


A descrição do video diz tudo

Cargobike Joy from CinematiQ on Vimeo.

Wanted to test the new Go Pro 2 and mounted it on the handlebars of a Bullitt Cargobike , i decided to make a short edit of the footage since it came out quite well and i was surprised to see all the little gestures Luka made all the time as he absolutely seemed to love his ride back home. …. @1:27 he spots the moon 🙂



Lindo, lindo, lindo… Vale a pena perder (ganhar) uns minutos para ver

‘Father and Daughter’ (2000) by Michaël Dudok de Wit from Jainkeff on Vimeo.

The story of a father who leaves his daughter and rows off into the sea, it commences with two figures riding their bicycles, the smaller of the wheels in perfect symmetry with the larger. The father and daughter climb to the top of a hill at which point the father alights, hugs his daughter before climbing down to the seashore. He cannot resist running back and holding the girl one last time before rowing off towards the distant horizon. The girl runs up and down against the skyline as the sun gradually sets. There is no explanation. She returns again and again to her vantage point on the cliff to peer out to sea for his return. Each return marks a passage in her life from child to adolescent, mother and eventually old woman. And still she returns to search for the father who left her. Of course it is not literal, of course her father will never, can never, return. But still she hopes.

Viewed as allegory or truth the consequent sense of grief and a longing for the return of the father is so intense that one attaches an individual interpretation or significance to the movie, be it a lost father, child or love. In the creator’s own words it is about “longing” that never diminishes despite the passage of time, defeating all logic.

The landscape of the Netherlands with its wide skies and tall poplar trees is the backdrop to the movie. The sky and landscape is a delicate colour wash of brown, grey, sepia, sometimes hints of green or blue. The drawing is pencil and charcoal, the drawings scanned and colour added digitally. Remarkably in a film that deals in emotion, there is no facial detail whatsoever. Often the figures are drawn in silhouette. This can be remarkably effective in conveying mood: the old woman toiling up the hill, the flapping arms of the child, the teenager gliding down the slope on her bike, which in another later scene will simply not stand upright. Always the brushwork is spare, perhaps a stroke that transforms into a slender girl or a smudge for the squared old woman. Each shot is exquisite: the long shadows of trees or bicycle; seascape and sky, vast and empty. The seasons change with a rustle of leaves or the girl struggling up the hill against a wind that bends trees. The music by Norman Roger is sympathetic to the theme, essentially a lilting tune but arranged with tone and depth.

Music: Normand Roger, Denis L. Chartrand


E como não há idade para ter emoções fortes na bicicleta

Este video chegou-nos via Copenhagenize, e é sobre a cultura das bicicletas de Carga na Dinamarca. Estamos tão longe disto, mas ao mesmo tempo tão perto – basta querer muito!


E termino com uma relíquia do princípio dos anos 70 – The Mixtures com a música “Pushbike Song”

tshhh ooh ooh

As you were ridin’ alo-ong
