Hanly Banks talks to Cool Hunting about shooting her music documentary Apocalypse: A Bill Callahan Tour Film, which was shot over a year of the musician's tour. She says, "I couldn't really capture—and no one could, unless if you're doing a posthumous documentary—the entirety of Bill's work. I really wanted to focus on what was happening at the moment, rather than encapsulate everything. You can go so many places when making a documentary. I kept it specific to this tour as it gave me leeway in terms of focusing." Read the full story here.

Chris Milk's "Hello, Again" was originally conceived of as an interactive website that allowed users to get a 360-degree view of Beck's live performance of David Bowie's "Sound and Vision." Now the experience has been transformed into a true virtual reality experience via Oculus Rift. Explains PSFK, "With the Oculus headset, viewers can find themselves right smack in the middle of the audience. With the Oculus Rift, the head movements are tracked by the sensor of the device.They can view and hear the show from any angle, thanks to the 360° video and audio system that looked like a giant head covered in ear-shaped microphones and cameras."

Bjorn Johansson's interactive website, Him, was inspired by Spike Jonze's Her and allows users to interact with it via speech recognition. Johansson tells Cool Hunting, "Due to the fact the there’s a pretty high threshold to enter the site—Chrome only, no mobile, mic required—I consider this project a very elaborate proof of concept. Speech-recognition is a very nascent concept on the web, and I think it'll take a few more years before it breaks through and becomes mainstream. When that happens though, hopefully people will remember this project." Read the full story here.
