Boardwalk Empire VFX Breakdowns of Season 2

Posted by Brainstorm Digital, who do most of the post-production work on this series. It honestly blows my mind how much treatment even a single ordinary shot gets. I would never have known. Fantastic.

2011

“I shot a little video every day of 2011 on my Canon Powershot, then I edited it all down to a little over a second each.”
A very watchable video by Vimeo’s “hey_rabbit” set to LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends”. Just a great, great project.

Hello

This one is blowing up in a big way, so most of you might have already seen it.
This (again) must have taken quite a bit of time to put together. Funny. Well done.

Friday already. Or Friday at last? You decide.

And here are some videos.

» Circus Galop: Performed by Humans

Circus Galop: Performed by Humans

To understand this performance, you have to realize that this piece, composed in 1961 by Marc-André Hamelin, was written as an impossible-to-play composition for player piano.
It’s crazy watching these two guys hammer through the entire thing.

» The Beatles vs Joan Jett vs Cypress Hill vs House of Pain vs RATM – Mash Together

The Beatles vs Joan Jett vs Cypress Hill vs House of Pain vs RATM - Mash Together

[uh… self explanatory]
Crazy! See it before lawyers kill it. 🙂
This was created by a mashup artist named fanfaroff. You should definitely check out other videos of his. (For example, this one.)

» Raiders of the Lost Archives

Raiders of the Lost Archives

“Shot-by-shot comparison of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” vs. scenes from 30 different adventure films made between 1919-1973.”

This is really, really impressive.
