“In September 2016 we visited this awesome city to try out some new time lapse stuff.
“It took us 10 days, a lot of burgers and one helicopter ride to produce this video. 10 days is very little time to discover this city of endless opportunities, so we hardly slept anything and shot day and night for this time lapse film. The city that never sleeps indeed!”
“Officially known as color-timing control strips, these anonymous female film studio workers were affectionately dubbed “china girls” by the industry. The images in this show were meant only for use by the processing lab to match color tones in the associated film.”
“This is a companion piece to my Fall time-lapse from a few years ago. I wanted it to be the polar opposite of the first one. Not just the Fall vs Spring. But wide shots vs close ups, everything in focus vs shallow depth of field, very cuty vs one shot, contemporary music vs classical, static camera vs moving camera.”
“Yuasa, a small coastal town in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan, is a fishing port and the producer of one of Japan’s most well known mandarin oranges, the Arida mikan. But a stroll through the traditional streets, including the only stretch of the famous Kumano Kodo pilgrim route that runs through the center of a town, takes you back to an age before westernization, when Yuasa was a vibrant hub of gastronomy in Japan. For it was here, in the 13th century, that soy sauce as we know it was first established and produced, and even now the streets are rich with the smells of fermenting soy sauce, still produced exactly the same way it was more than 750 years ago.”
“This is a printer built using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 set (31313). It uses a gel pen to draw text at different sizes and the EV3 logo, but I plan to expand it in the future to print more things, as well as process input to print on demand.”
Technically this is a “plotter”, but either way: fantastic!
Take Beatles Sgt. Pepper songs, rewrite them to exist in the Star Wars universe, then cut together videos using Star Wars footage. This (and all the other videos in this series) is making the rounds and for very good reason.
There’s one for each track of the album. Think about how long this took to accomplish!
Nerd note: Legally, this is “fair use” since it falls under both parody and also reinterpretation, but Disney / Lucasfilm / lawyers will probably still pull it down, so enjoy while you can.
“With the recent events that have happened in society, it has really taken a toll on me mentally/emotionally. My heart is hurting and there’s nothing I can really say. So since music is the thing I know best I figured I’d just play.”
