POP Video/POP Profile: Baby Trashes Bar in Las Palmas Is A Riot, Now Meet The Guy Who Made It.

Published

Everyone once in a while something comes along that is so brilliantly conceived that it makes you wonder why no one had thought of it before! In watching this video, ‘Baby Trashes Bar In Las Palmas” I suddenly realized that a baby, still refining it’s motor skills – looks a hell of a lot like a drunk adult. (But cuter.) It’s beautifully, (and hysterically) demonstrated in the trailer for the short movie “Las Palmas.”  Take a look at the video, and learn a little bit about the creator below!

So who’s the brainchild behind the video? Johannes Nyholm, an artist and film director based in Gothenburg, Sweden. The award winning filmmaker has made several music videos, animated shorts and films, but the inspiration for this one had a more personal backstory, as I learned from Nyholm himself:

Tell me how this all started! It all began as a documentary about my one year old daughter – something that later evolved into a more complex situation. (It’s now) part of a 14 minutes short film. It is the same story as in the trailer but a bit more developed.

How long did it take to shoot this scene?Really hard to say. It’s shot at several different occations, months passing inbetween. We never shot full days, just 1-2 hours a day, 1-2 days a week, and the scenes were not scripted the traditional way. So hard to say what shots from what days made into this trailer. But…roughly 5 days of shooting, which means 5 times 1,5 hours.

How difficult was it to get your daughter to cooperate? It was quite easy. We just let her do more or less what she normally does every day, i.e eat, drink, play, etc. I realized early during the shooting that I had to be very open minded, and not try to control the situation too much. So more or lesss the whole film left me “pleasantly surprised”. The little actress came up with much better ideas than I could ever imagine. 

You’ve worked with claymation and puppetry before – and the presence of marionettes in this film definitely adds a new sense of scale to your daughter’s presence… Where does your fascination with this come from? I guess I started with animation as a way to get more control over the process. As an animator you can control every frame of the film, making minute adjustments to small objects. That was fascinating. But nowadays I kind of goes the other way, I welcome irrationality and chaos. This film is a manifestation of that.

“Las Palmas” will be fully completed in May.

WATCH: Ducks Adorably Eat Peas With The Same Terrifying Fervor As Piranhas Eating Meat

Seriously, I’ve never seen ducks eat peas before, but now that I know, I would never get in their way.

A imgur user named Conniverse has ducks. We’re used to feeding ducks when we were kids, things like bread, etc. and that’s not a great thing. Ducks need nutrition too, and it turns out peas are just the thing. And GOD do they love them. Get out of their way! They’re cute, but holy hell.

When a golden retriever comes upon a marching band heading up a set of stairs to perform at a nearby stadium, it can’t help itself… it begs for a little love. The marching band, which clearly has excellent judgement, does what any sensible marching band would do.
