I saw this on Motionographer today:


This is an awesome short by Ned Wenlock who seems to be a master at the digital rolling paper with drop shadow look. It’s also very 50s cartoon ish (which obviously i’m obsessed with!)

ThriftyBeats sells AWESOME suitcase boomboxes on Etsy. Here is my interview with Dave from Thrifty to get a better idea on how the magic happens!

What is thrifty beats?

Thrifty beats starts with a vintage suitcase. That suitcase is then restyled, repurposed and redefined into a retro boombox. Each case is fitted with an amplifier, speaker setup, on/off switch, auxilary input and a wall charger. Options include a usb charger, varying speaker colors, colored leds, and when the party demands mobility, a rechargeable battery. Cases can vary from 30 watts to 400 watts with all sorts of speaker setups that will not only compliment the ear but compliment the eye. Each case is handcrafted with quality audio components to deliver an exceptional sound. This is art with an attitude you can hear.

How do you work?

I work in an environment that I would consider “organized chaos”. My tools are laid out neatly, everything is measured exact and all needs to be perfect or it’s not good enough. In the background is the chaos: music blasting from my personal thrifty beats case. Tuning everything out and getting down to business.

What is your inspiration?

My inspiration is the do-it-yourself mentality and design aspect associated with this endeavor. The reward that comes with the completion of something you built with your own two hands tops nothing else. Then add the factor of being able to listen to and enjoy your project to the tune of your favorite beat, nothing better.
