Radiolab the Movie
How, how, did it take me two weeks to post this Radiolab-esque, Radiolab-inspired video? It’s called “Moments” and it lives up to its name. The snippets that Will Hoffman has captured are non-trivial and non-clichéd. Many of them are brain-sparking and smile-inducing. (I think I liked the frisbee on the roof best of all. Is that weird?)
What this is not is the Radiolab of video. That designation, that honor, remains unbestowed. It awaits an entrant that breaks from the cut-cut-cut of traditional video (Hoffman’s style is great, but it’s… straight cuts) and reimagines that glowing frame as fully as Radiolab has reimagined the stuff that comes out of two speakers.
However, “Moments” is still terrific, so watch it.
