I was introduced to Kenny Ong through a friend who sent me this video clip. As soon as I watched it, I knew this kid had talent. Kenny's a 25 year old graphic artist for Up Above Records.
It was shortly after that we got to meet up for lunch and talk shop. Turns out that he's only been shooting and editing for a short time. Kenny's piece is a perfect example of organic rhythm. The images flow harmoniously in sync with the music, despite the sometimes randomness of the shots. That's what I like about Kenny's style. He really knows how to mix it up. He plays with the speed, the angles, the timing and the logic. You can tell he's having fun. And by the end, you feel like you've just been taken along for a ride through his eyes.
He challenges me to take more risks with my own projects.
You'll be seeing more clips from Kenny in the near future.
In the meantime, view the clip that made me a fan.Watch Japan 05!
