New York based indie-dance band Estate and Tokyo based band, Liquid Pegasus just released a 3-D gif music video for their single Tendency.

Each exposure shoots 4 images from slightly different angles across the space of 2 full 35 mm exposures. The end result is pretty cool.

Questlove <3 Stevie Wonder

Victor Jeffreys II · 05/23/13 02:52PM

I have no pictures of the 300 people that showed up to Avenue on Thursday after for Absolut's second Lunch Break—I was too busy dancing to shoot. Questlove played an hour long set that was almost entirely Stevie Wonder, which was incredible. On my way out they handed me a bagged lunch with an excellent PB&J and a banana. Not a bad way to spend a lunch hour.
