Return to High Chaparral

Last year, we visited a theme park celebrating America’s mythic Wild West in wintery Sweden that became a welcoming home for refugees fleeing the Syrian civil war. As strange as that sounds, this was a pretty good deal for about 500 people looking to start a new life. But with global political winds shifting toward isolationism, the Wild West response to a refugee crisis only lasts so long. We went back to see how the West was lost.

Note to Self

Unfinished business is the worst and a couple things have consistently hovered over my conscience over the past few years. The first being a bundle of beautiful footage sitting unused on a hard drive (from a scrapped music video o' mine) - the second being the way I ended a rather delightful little summer rendezvous. Both contain content recorded during completely different chapters (even cities) of my life yet for some reason, when I connected the two, all felt right in the world and I'd even argue it was almost as if they were waiting on the other to be a complete(d) piece. That piece is now viewable in the form of a short titled “Note to Self."

All I will say as a disclaimer is that what it lacks in length I hope it makes up for in honesty, heart and vulnerability as it’s filled from start to finish with a good deal of mine.

Populous - Azulejos [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

“Azulejos" is a heartfelt tribute to Portugal.
Emanuele Kabu's illustrations reveal a personal view of Lisbon, disclosing the more mysterious, psychedelic and seductive side of the city. A kaleidoscopic journey through Barrio Alto's narrow lanes, hopping on and off the Alfama tram, sailing down the Tejo river and under the 25 de Abril bridge, all the way to the feet of the Cristo-Rei.
More details about the concept here:

Organa (Official video by Sabine Volkert)

From the album 'Emergence' out now

Follow on Spotify: https://MaxCooper.lnk.to/FollowOnSpotify

"For this chapter of the Emergence story I wanted to escape the computational and data-driven approaches often used in other parts of the project, and try something more humanised. I found an amazing artist called Sabine Volkert, who hand-draws every frame of her videos, which creates a very particular sort of feeling, and one that seemed to me to fit with the feeling of the music and of the concept involved - the tinkering of animal development via random mutation to create a rich variation of forms on which natural selection can act - the mechanism of Darwinian Evolution.

Sabine told this story with warping morphologies, exploring the range of animal structures we see around us. All of these different structures have many shared underlying principles, such as segmentation (units built around analogues of a spinal cord), modularity (organs as individual units), and bilateral symmetry (mirrored body structure to give directionality for senses). There are many more of these common principles shared amongst animal forms, which are coded for and created by shared molecular mechanisms like the genetic code and gene regulation, which guide the process of development to create each different animal.

Because of this mechanism of conserved systems and principles, random mutations in small regions of DNA can produce large scale, coordinated changes in bodily structure. It's evolution of evolvability - nature has set up system which is likely to produce a wide range of potentially viable, but different animals, as the best bet for survival in an unpredictable world." Max Cooper

"For Max' beautiful track Organa I grounded the video's visual concept and stylistic choices in its thematic background, while leaving a lot of room for experimentation throughout the entire process.

Following only a set of rules for the standalone animation chains and a rough overall structure, everything was pieced together gradually, evolving into the final compositions guided by the musical cues as everything unfolds over time." Sabine Volkert

A Taste of New York

This is the third episode of our independent „A Taste of ...“ time lapse series.
In September 2016 we visited this awesome city to try out some new time lapse stuff.
It took us 10 days, a lot of burgers and one helicopter ride to produce this video. 10 days is very little time to discover this city of endless opportunities, so we hardly slept anything and shot day and night for this time lapse film. The city that never sleeps indeed!

The Taxishot:
Over the 10 days we took photos of yellow cabs whenever we had time to from as many different angles as possible. So we gathered 2000 (!) photos in total we had to sort afterwards and compile to a hyperlapse around a cab in post production. It took us 5 whole days in post production to get this one shot.

Technical Details:
In 10 days we shot 65.000 Photos taking up 2,6 TB of our hard drives. The final 3 minute video took 36h to render on the best equipped iMac available.

Bayard & Me


Bayard & Me is a short doc about how the openly gay civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, best known for organizing the March on Washington and advising Martin Luther King, adopted his partner Walter Naegle in the 1980s for legal protections. In this intimate love story, Walter remembers Bayard and how they had to work around the system in an era when gay marriage was inconceivable. He also reflects on the little known phenomena of intergenerational gay adoption and its connection to the civil rights movement.

Matt Wolf is an award-winning filmmaker in New York. His film include Wild Combination about the avant-garde cellist and disco producer Arthur Russell and Teenage about the birth of youth culture. His most recent shorts include HBO’s It’s Me, Hilary and The Face of AIDS for TIME Magazine.
