If you want to understand

by June 1, 2004

If you want to understand who controls a society take a survey of who gives the most finacial support to the artists. Are there anymore individual arts patrons like Countess Nica de Koenigswarter? Or are most of today’s patrons corporations? I’d say the latter. This cool film directed by Elliott merges live action with motion graphics, typography and animation. Four beat boxers are featured in the clip: Faith sfx, Koobs, Lianhart, and Oracle, each representing Paris, Berlin, London and New York, creating a mini, multi-layered hip hop opera.
