By | Inspiration | No Comments

It was just a short moment a couple months ago, but I was honored to be able to share the stage with some very talented speakers and artist at this years Blend Festival. This talk and animation was part of a short insight I was able to share regarding the importance of writing by hand. Once again a big thanks to the team that makes this happens every other year, and another huuuuge TY to John Black of Cypheraudio and Tobias Norberg for the lovely track under this animation. Looking forward till the next one.

Man Seeking Woman Main Titles by DK Studios, by DIGITAL KITCHEN

DK teamed up with FXX to create the main title sequence for the network’s new original comedy “Man Seeking Woman,” starring Jay Baruchel and created by former “SNL” writer Simon Rich.

Based on Rich’s book of short stories, “The Last Girlfriend on Earth,” the series is a sweet and absurdist look at the surreal life-and-death stakes of dating and the quest for love —centered on Josh Greenberg (Baruchel).

DK crafted an iconic graphic approach for the titles, meant to contrast with the show’s live action. In the sequence, symbols of ordinary dating life mix with over-the-top, genre-spanning imagery, reflecting the unique narrative device used in the series. Packed into 30 seconds, the titles are filled with action and fun moments to keep each viewing fresh and engaging. Viewers are sure to catch new details each time they watch.

PANO | LA – 10K, by SCIENTIFANTASTIC

By | Inspiration | No Comments

PLEASE WATCH FULLSCREEN IN FULL HD

Shooting Pano LA has been the most ambitious, challenging, demanding, and rewarding project I have worked on to date. It was shot over a period of two years entirely in true panoramic form using two synced DSLR cameras side by side. The resulting panoramic timelapse footage comes in at a whopping 10K x 4K resolution when stitched. I did not shoot this film to achieve the extreme resolution. I shot it for the panoramic look, especially the compressed look you get when using long lenses.

Shooting panoramic timelapse was something I had always wanted to do. I love panoramic images and wanted to bring that look to timelapse, and I wanted to do it proper, not by faking it by just cropping the top and bottom of regular timelapse shots. I gave it a try many years ago but was never able to get the images from the two cameras to sync properly and get the images to stitched together correctly.

A couple years ago I was contacted by a client wanting some panoramic timelapse shots of LA. I told them I had tried it in the past and it did not work out to well, but that I am willing to give it another try. So I purchased some new gear and set out to my local testing locations in Malibu. The initial shots were successful so I continued shooting / testing for the next couple weeks. At that point I had acquired a few good test shots to show the client and sent them over to them. Long story short I never heard back from them about the project, but I kept shooting anyways. If it was not for that failed job/project I probably would have never got around to giving panoramic timelapse another try.

Signal / Void – Pause 2017 Motion Response, by Scott Geersen

By | Inspiration | No Comments

Created for Pause Fest 2017: http://ift.tt/Uok3Ta
Signal/Void is about a darker view of the networks we belong to and take part in every day: some voluntary, some unseen.
The mechanisms of these networks are designed to keep us plugged in by delivering stories, information and images – hopes and dreams – that directly feed our own desires and version of reality.
But the cold truth is that the ultimate goal is often the collection, quantification, analysis and storage of our very selves, and so these networks are carefully maintained to best keep us blindly acquiescent. The system is addictive and hard to escape. It sucks up time, closes our eyes to the world around us, and blinds us to true human connection.
