OK this is pretty impressive. The timelapse video below is made up from 9624 shots 5K RAW images shot over a 4 month period of time. From the look of the video, it looks as though the images were composited over the patterned background but I might be wrong about that. Created by Thomas Blanchard, the 4 minute clip is a wonderful representation of the genre and the vintage patterned backgrounds really make this video pop. For info on the music and other info, click through to Vimeo for additional links.
Here is the list of flowers that are featured in the video along with the length of each clip.
Its almost the weekend, so take 40 seconds out of your day, watch this and smile. The animation below is fromJ-Scott. It took two years of nights and weekends to put this together and it shows. Great comedic timing, solid animations, really solid sound design and musical score.
This is pretty funny, and spot on for quite a few show reel /sizzle reels out there. If you work in the fields of film and broadcast, or motion graphics, the video below from Peter Quinn is for you. If you like what you see in the video and want to add this kind of snap to your sizzle reel, you can download Quinn’s project files here.
“I love showreels, and make sure to watch a few every morning with my first coffee. Noticing my own reel was insanely out-of-date got me thinking about reels in general. Here are a few of the obvious 2D and 3D showreel tropes I could think of (and am guilty of, too) mashed together into one almighty anti-showreel!”
One of the things that has impressed me over the last few years about publisher Gestalten, is their use of emerging media channels to promote the books they produce. Over the last few years, Gestalten has begun producing videos that are published on their site, as well as social media channels like Vimeo for each book. With new upload, the videos get better, and more involved. A solid example of this is from the book “Designing Patterns‘ featuring the work of Swedish designer Lotta Kühlhorn. The video below is a casual interview about her process and inspiration. It features not only pages from the book but animated patterns created from her work interspersed with Kühlhorn talking.
As for the book itself, it is typical Gestalten quality. Wonderfully laid out pages, in depth editorial, insight into the artist work flow, and extra features like a CD filled with templates for experimentation by beginners and professionals alike.
This is just insane. Seriously watching this video made my palms sweat. Leave it to some crazy French guys to try and walk a slack-line between two hot air balloons. Oh and there is a clown, yes a clown in the video that ads to the scary factor. Yes, clowns are scary. If the ballon video below doesn’t scare you, and you want to see more high-wire acts, they have a documentary you can watch on Vimeo here.
Having returned from my snow walk I thought I would thaw out while perusing some fine video work on Vimeo. While trolling through the people I follow I came across this fairly new upload from Peter Wollring. It showcases the manufacture of NOMOS watches in Glashütte, Germany with some great camera work, solid editing, and tight features on what makes NOMOS watches stand out.
The video below highlights the rich history of sign painting in Dublin. As a person that started his graphic design career doing hand lettering, this short film captures something I hold dear. The art of craft, the art of creating by hand. Watching the people in this film hand letter signage with brush and paint is truely wonderful. Listening to a son talk about his father, grandfather, and great grandfather all passing the craft forward to the next generation is simply fantastic.
