Check Out Patrick Boivin's Videos on YouTube
Patrick Boivin (born 1975) is a self-taught and fiercely independent filmmaker from Canada, who in addition to directing, is often involved in the lighting, editing, animation, special effects and even music in his films. Check out his YouTube channel, which is full of cool stuff. Boivin started his creative career by drawing comic books, and, in his words, “quickly discovered that it was faster to tell a story with video." He cites Tom Waits, Roy Andersson, Federico Fellini, and Paul Thomas Anderson as influences on his style, according to Wikipedia. Check out one of his coolest videos here, in which he turns a series of YouTube-videos into an interactive dance game.
