The Videos of Everynone

If you haven’t seen the work of Everynone yet, then be sure to hop over to their site to check out their amazing video productions.

In all their videos, they masterfully dissect common phenomenon like sitting on a porch, the concept of a moment, or listening to your heartbeat. Similar to The Practice of Everyday Life, their videos delve deeper into seemingly mundane things to reveal the underlying excitement, joy, and opportunities that these relatively common moments actually have.

In particular check out their video “words.” It’s incredibly playful in that they explore the various definitions of words through a series of short video clips. The transitions are really quite clever and it’s a fun little exploration of the interactions between language, the vernacular, and the phenomenon that surround us in our everyday lives. It’s impressive in that it’s so well organized that you can literally read the progression of the words and meanings without that word actually being uttered.

Run by Will Hoffman, Daniel Mercadante, and Julius Metoyer III they are based in New York and LA.
