Friday! And also: Spring!

This calls for some videos…

» THE CUT

THE CUT

“Decided to do something a bit different. I liked the idea of slicing up fruit and vegetables to create a stop motion animation of them changing shape with each cut. The idea came when I saw the cross section of a tree with the circles and decided to apply it to food.”
This is pretty great.

» The making of Shylight (short version)

The making of Shylight (short version)

Shylight is a light installation designed by Studio Drift at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum which was created to mimic the blooming patterns of some species of flowers.
This video shows them in action.
Very complex work went into these. Pretty amazing.

» Simon Beck’s Snow Art – Banff National Park

Simon Beck's Snow Art - Banff National Park

“#ProjectSnow tells the visual story of Beck’s magnificent imprints on the pristine, mountainous landscape of Banff National Park in Alberta’s Canadian Rockies – his latest winter canvas.”
Very impressive.

» First and Final Frames

First and Final Frames

“What can we learn by examining only the first and final shot of a film? This video plays the opening and closing shots of 55 films side-by-side. Some of the opening shots are strikingly similar to the final shots, while others are vastly different–both serving a purpose in communicating various themes.”
At first glance it seems like an arbitrary thing to catalogue, but clearly a lot of directors have thought about this.
Interesting.

Bonus Video:

» Autotune-Dog

Autotune-Dog

“Maggie is a Saluki cross who was rescued from a terrible situation, now she enjoys a loud life of singing and playing.”
I lol’d. 🙂

Have a great, great Friday everybody.

More soon!
