Need A Little Inspiration? Check Out Karl X Johan - Flames

Our main focus here at Fstoppers is informative BTS content but sometimes as creatives we have the technical skills and we need a little bit of inspiration to get us going. I just ran across Karl X Johan's music video for the song "flames" by director Gustav Johansson and I was so impressed I had to post it. I've never seen story telling in this way and I'm sure you guys will enjoy it as much as I did. Make sure you watch it in HD!

Wow, this is seriously fantastic. Just the idea of the style is amazing in and of itself. I'm jealous of all the talent that went into this.

Very nice, some of the cuts has that "Dexter" opening sequence feel to them.

Very beautiful videography and such attention to detail. The whole film was shot at such shallow DoF and so close to the action. Awesome views. Phew it's getting hot in here ...
