A moving infrared timelapse movie.
This is a personal project culminated from years of shooting IR stills and never really being satisfied with the results. Shot primarily in Albemarle County, Virginia, the movie was captured using a Canon 5D mark II converted with a 720nm IR filter over the sensor. The sensor filter allows normal camera operation but shoots only IR images. I used a rail from Dynamic Perception to create the moving images and processed everything in Adode Premiere/After Effects.
Check out my website andrewshurtleff.com to see some cool IR stills under the fine arts section.
Great, great, great video profile of David Lynch as he goes about his daily life.
As a good friend said
It’s a good thing that Lynch doesn’t (yet) livestream his entire life, because my already-limited productivity would plummet put-near to zero.
Special thanks to Biblioklept for writing the headline and the link in the first place.
You can watch it here in this little window, but do yourself a favor and find the largest monitor you can, load this link to the original, go full screen, set the quality level to Original and wait for the glory that is RED and 4k video resolution. It may take a while to load, but it’s worth it.
The sight of blue and yellow blobs crashing into a slow-motion explosion of green on your screen is usually entertaining enough in itself, but how about cranking up its resolution to a mighty 4096 x 2304? That’s what Jacob Schwarz has done, with the help of a RED Epic camera, a Canon 100mm macro lens, and Adobe’s Premiere CS6 software. Together with his partner Katie Schwarz, Jacob has put together three minutes of stunningly detailed footage of ink drops diluting and intermingling in water.
It seems as if it’s video day here.
Here’s a lovely little animated feature from Disney Animation Studios (Pixar).
Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with the Oscar®-nominated short, “Paperman.” Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.
