More soon is a design studio founded by Carl Burgess and based in London in 2009, it produces both films and images, this are made at the request of international clients who are from the Art, Advertisement, Music and Fashion industry. More soon focus on making bizarre yet beautiful works of art. companies More soon have received communions from are Prada, Nike, Adidas, Mercedes, Kenzo and Pharrell Williams, along with others.
Carl Burgess have 10 years experience in the field, he was won awards as a art director with works .he is the art director of Hi-res. Carl often does lectures and workshops, some of the places he does this at are OFFF, Bauhaus and It’s Nice That, he always knew that he wanted to be a designer and has been quoted as saying “I have been into art and design for as long as I can remember” and “even from an early age I had a clear direction of where I wanted to go. I always thought I would end up being a graphic illustrator, as I didn’t know there was such a thing as a designer back then. I remember telling my career officer at secondary school that’s what I wanted to do and he seemed to think it was a far-fetched idea and I should focus on more realistic goals” but in the end he did not follow the advise and became the graphic designer we know today after completing he degrees at Leeds Metropolitan University and Central Saint Martians, he went to work for Hi-res and hasn’t left since.
One of the pieces from the More soon website and found the image Head and Shoulders, It appears to be misshaped body parts, I can tell this from the fact that their skin texture and the fact that the third images resembles a human head. the reason why I choose this design is due to the fact that I think the image is fascinating, it looks like a body was turned into a paste and shaped into a gum ball gum like statue.
The next statue looks like an explosion with the smaller bottom expending out as you go down and the top that shaped like a mushrooms head with a the top being dark and light grey, it appears that a broken tube surrounds the image.
The third image is the most human like as you can see the hair, eyes and nose of the head, however it’s miss formed with the head look squished and uncomfortable.
The last statue look like the previous one only that now it has burst open and miss shaped even more, the face is squished together tightened together with the area below it has burst opened reviling to a mouth and beard but they have been miss shaped slightly, around the mouth we see bits of flesh sticking out of the figure showing more deformities. To me this images represent different stages in the artist life from the first where life was simple and unknown one where their old and have been misshaped by the world they live in, the second can represents child as they grows up and finally becomes and a adult, next we have the third one when they have finally formed a identity for themselves however their not fully found themselves and lastly is the 4th one which is misshapen and odd representing that he didn’t become what he wanted to be and is trapped in his body unable to change now and is forever incomplete.
When looking online and I found no article apart from the original website talking about the image so I haven’t had a chance to find any article to compare my research and options to

After finishing the video I think the short scenes are about emotion, I have to emit the idea when I looked up what language the man in the beginning was specking as I click a music lyric set and instead showed me what the man said, in the text it talked about what would happen if Bruno dies, this line makes you few the short video in another light, in the video we see an old man, through out the video he shown crying and laughing through out the video

A water melon is hit but a wood chopping axe. A women can be seen steaming along with a man in the next shot. Man held a beer can so head it content shoots out every where. A stranger uses a crowbar to break a car back window. A women pulls some rob against a sky like background. The next scene shows a man drinking from a shear glass as his has it draping from his face. A man seems to be moving bandages across from each hand, it really herd to see what he really is doing. A man is scream silently. A break hits a car window and the glass breaks instantly. A man is holding a crowbar. A women stands their expressionless. A red pole crashes into the mirror below, completely shattering it. A man loses his balance and fells to his nees. The current scene shows a traditional English breakfast on fire. A man bends back and gasps as if he witness something. A man appear to hit himself over the head with a bland bottle. A cake is destroyed after a unknown figure walks over it with high heels.
A man laughs out loud but still no voice.

A man appears and laughs. the two last scenes have an man then a women calming down, the music has completely stopped.
After analysing the scenes of this video, I believe that Kap Bambino’s obsess is about stress and the reacting we give off, my main evidence is the constant destruction of object across the video along with the scenes where a man is bleeding from the mouth when the previous two scenes show shows the same man angered with the next showing another holding a crowbar, both men were pissed of in this scenes. The ending of the video shows a scene of people calming down tells me a argument or possible even a fight just happened recently. In the video a lot of glass objects breaking due to vandalism can support this as this is a stereotype where people go on rampage when posed to their mental limits, theirs is also ton of scenes where the characters act enraged.

The two music videos are very similar their a collection of actor preforming different emotions, however their main similarities are the fact that they consist entirely of single shot and angle scene of actor performing motion relating to their theme and the fact that their are subtle connection overall and actors pop up in multiple scenes, the differences are the fact that their moods are completely different as Drug has a calm mood where Obsess is energetic and insane.
In my research I have found some surprising information about the creators of the videos, Carl Burgess company intends on making beautiful thing, this would explain the visual elements of the video. Carl Burgess intended for Drug to disturb the viewer, his is also known to have a sense of humor to his videos, this two mixing could results with the uncanny awkwardness of the video. In Carl’s video he usually has a core idea to base the rest of his work on, his also made a more traditional cut of the Drug video where the cuts were shorter and everything following a rhythm, however he found that lot of his meaning was ultimately lost in the process of conforming his video so he decide to retooled it to his style. He has always had a fondness for stock footage and the oddness of it all, one of the inspirations for the video came when he found some stock footage of a upset teenager along with the uses of this scene, which it meant for anti-drug commercials and it was meant to be used with a drug related back drop or item/s related to the topic to tell you that is the cause, He got the idea of what if you didn’t have items or background, how weird would this scene be without and context to tell you other wise. Drug was Carl’s first attempt at editing a video, he choice edit as he felt he was the only one how could get his vision across along with adding his own personality to the work. the footage come from a website called Getty image, a website how works with stock images and footage, the company is located in across the world and located in New York, Paris and other capital Cites and the company was originally founded in 1995,
