The good news is that it’s Friday. And it’s not just Friday — it’s the Friday before the first unofficial weekend of summer! Even though summer doesn’t officially begin for another month, Memorial Day weekend always kicks it off right. Around Brit HQ there’s talk of girls’ trips to Palm Springs, couples’ camping in Northern Cali and even a jet set adventure to Sweden. Before we completely check out for the day though, let us turn our attention to the task at hand: the BritList.
1. 49 Students Animated Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”: Thought you’d seen your share of Taylor Swift music videos this week? Wrong. This impressive project, created by 49 University of Newcastle animation students, is comprised of 2,767 frames of hand-drawn rotoscoped animation footage. So cool.
2. Wes Anderson-Themed Wedding: What do you do when you wish your life could be as hipster as a Wes Anderson movie? You stage a wedding shoot to make it a reality.
