Good Things by Good People.

I’m in love with this beautiful music video of Charlottesville band The Hill & Wood‘s “The Call,” directed by my dear friend Ms. Charlotte Hornsby. I seriously can’t get enough of it. Go watch it, & support the band. Charlottesville fun fact: this band took its name from the Hill & Wood Funeral Home, which is several blocks away from where I’m sitting writing this.
For more fun, here’s another music video Charlotte directed for the Young Writers video mag, one of the many awesome things these kids produce over the course of a very small period of time.
They lost their earlier footage, so they shot this piece of genius in a day. Right? It’s pretty much a marvel.
Since we’re on the subject of the YWW Video Mag, here’s one of my favorites, from 2008, which my best friend in the whole wide world Jonathan Ade had his incredible hands all over. Starring then-student/now-counselor Thomas Reid as The Detective, then-student/now-counseloress Alison Shyer as The Girl Who Gets Pushed Off the Balcony, and now-and-always-Founding Director Margo Figgins as, well, kind of herself, his little piece of cinema is quite the thrill ride. I promise that despite its mass murdery subject matter it’ll brighten your day.
