Adverts aimed at younger demographics which have been taken down or postponed because they feature images of protest/youth disturbances (although they are still live on YouTube):

Bringing Google Street View to life (or C4 get ‘urban’)

with one comment

Great advert by the UK TV channel Channel 4 to promote their new foray into the ‘urban’ realm. Set on one street near Brick Lane in East London, this trailer explores the street and life within it by using a blending of Google Street View, motion video, and an incredibly fast moving camera. There are also a million cameos from the UK’s hip-hop/grime talent of the moment.

Quite a composite of images:

Thanks to @CleanBandit for highlighting this

“One of the greatest car chases ever, simply because it was real”

with 4 comments

“A notorious nine-minute speed through the streets of Paris, shot on a camera strapped to the front of a Ferrari 275 GTB, this injection of adrenaline was an illegal shoot which led to the arrest of filmmaker Claude Lelouch when it was first shown. Lelouch was apparently at the wheel, too. An underground classic, hailed as being the greatest car chase ever, simply because it was real.”

[Blurb taken from the about section of the YouTube video]

Who needs CGI when you’re reckless as hell and need to go meet your girlfriend at the other end of Paris?
