Beyonce & Jay Z: ‘Bang Bang, Part One’ (Short Film)

206 views

beyonce jay z bang bang part one

The billionaire couple, Beyonce & Jay Z‘s “On The Run” stadium tour is officailly over with an emotional ending in Paris, France – the city where they got engaged, and where Blue Ivy was conceived (why this is public knowledge, we couldn’t tell you). In fact, it was in that same city that HOV may have revealed another child on the way. And it looks like they don’t plan on staying quiet, as they release the Dikayl Rimmasch directed, Nowness presented triology dubbed Bang Bang. Part Two arrives on Tuesday, with the HBO special premiering September 20th. Check out Part One after the jump.

Two American outlaws speed through the Californian desert in a dusty 1960s Pontiac GTO with a manifest poise and stylish swagger that could only be embodied by the world’s foremost musical couple: Beyoncé and Jay Z. Directed by the New York-based filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch, Bang Bang is a trilogy of short films starring Mr and Mrs Carter’s filmic alter egos, appearing throughout their two-and-a-half month long tour, On the Run, which celebrated its finale on Saturday at Stade de France in Paris. Rimmasch was introduced to Beyoncé and Jay Z via Mark Romanek, and with a creative cohort in the war photojournalist William Kaner put together a filmmaking approach and aesthetic inspired by French new wave cinema and the powerful intimacy of legendary independent director and mentor, Les Blank. Rimmasch’s stripped-back process paid dividends, allowing an incredibly fast, shoot-from-the-hip style using custom camera rigs that he had designed, 50-year-old Russian lenses and lighting effects by Archie Ciotti and Scott Spencer. Below, we’re in conversation with the steadfast director—also known for his black-and-white campaigns for RRL by Ralph Lauren—about Bang Bang’s conception and what it’s like to direct contemporary music’s most iconic performers.

Alesso’s Debut Single “Heroes (We Could Be)” Is Here, And It’s Magical

344 views

Alesso-Heroes_tovelo_wecoludbe_select

From the moment we first heard Alesso‘s “Heroes” in rough, live form, we knew it was going to be in the running for single of the year. The enchanting, progressive melody united with the beautiful vocal chords of Tove Lo make it impossible not to vibe and sing along to at the top of your lungs. The message, albeit simplistic, is so spot on:

“Everyday people do / Everyday things but I / Can’t be one of them / I know you hear me now / We are a different kind / We can do anything”

Does that not make you feel powerful, invincible, make you wanna do big things? Officially out in the US in about 12 hours, you can stream it here and grab the New Zealand version if it for some reason lets you. Check back around midnight 9/15/2014 to get your copy. Have you seen the music video for “Tear The Roof Up” yet?
