If you haven’t seen any of Pogo’s mesmerising and melodious film remixes, please please do that now. Once you’ve been entranced, come back here and watch this video about the man behind the magic.
Nick Bertke, or Pogo, has created a nice little peek inside his own world of sampling, assembling, and transforming films like Up, Alice in Wonderland, and Lord of the Rings, which you can check out on his YouTube page. For all his internet-fame, he seems like quite the mild-mannered individual, just doting away at his music and video projects, speaking sincerely in what almost seems like a video-confessional.
Bertke’s understated passion really comes across, which is no surprise, given the meticulous craft that goes into each piece. Keep up the good work, Nick! [YouTube]
