For a year riddled with milestones, tragedies and epic world events, many of the most important moments will fade from memory and get muddled with time. Thankfully, Brooklyn-based artist and “stuff-maker” Mac Premo co-wrote, directed, shot and edited a clever year in review video that tackles most things major, one month at a time. Thoughtful, spot on and at times laugh out loud funny, it’s two and a half well-spent minutes—visualized in a way only Premo can muster. From a chalkboard depiction Ebola spreading continents to the notion that Brazil lost their World Cup game so severely to avert eyes from their corruption scandals, it’s a real sizzler. While many of the issues are distressing, the video remains enjoyable as montage, collage, reenactment and animations unite to help us remember what all went down.
