Videos? Love ’em IV

It’s back on again folks!

The “Videos? Love em'” series, is back every week inshaAllah. This weeks decision was once again a hard one. With my being occupied with university, the number of videos I’ve been watching decreased rapidly. Meaning, I just got around to watching the many good videos, that were uploaded weeks ago.

This edition is going to be laden with motion-graphics and it has absolutely nothing to do with my being in love with the art. (ha) So without further ado, I give you my favourite clips this week.

The first video in the Category Islamic, is a promo for an event. It is going to take place at the end of December and is organised by Alkauthar and Mercy Mission. (ado, ado, ado…)

I must say I’m quite jealous that I won’t be able to hear Amal Ahmad Albaz. She is one of the first Muslim slam poets I encountered on my search, after getting interested in Slam Poetry. Here is one of her videos.

I like the tranquillity exhumed by the video, the smooth transitions with the nicely chosen audio. Overall a good experience, and I hope the ladies have fun inshaAllah.

The second video, I watched a little over a week ago. Ten minutes before Fajr, a small cut out of a talk by Sheikh Saad Tasleem. I truly love him for the sake of Allah. He’s a cool cat. MashaAllah.

The talk was exactly what I needed when I first heard it. Strengthening my resolve to make better use of my nights, instead of reading Fan-fiction the whole night.

In the non-Islamic category, again two motion graphic shows.

First up, is NBC’s The Blacklist “Classified” trailer by Patrick Clair who produces absolutely brilliant content. The stuxnet video I featured in “Internet Security or Videos? Love em’ III” is also one of his creations.

I’ve got no words to describe it, everything just fits together. I think I might check out the Series, the 8th episode was just aired shouldn’t be too  hard to get caught up.

The second video is somewhat related to the recent NSA scandals. It tries to highlight the contradiction in our demanding transparency from organizations, such as Google, in the way our privacy is ensured. With us being our worst enemies in keeping information, about ourselves private on services such as Facebook.

 

Wa Salam,
