Photoshop Transformation Music Video

Photoshop

Photoshop is a great tool, without a doubt, but this French music video highlights the moral implications of its use in society these days. Everyone knows that models and celebrities are ‘Photoshopped’ on the front of magazine covers but I didn’t realise the extent of the tools power. This can be seen in this music video where some French singer warbles on as her face is retouched and transformed from perfectly pretty to a Mila Kunis look-a-like.

I’ve no idea what she is singing about; she could be singing “My face looks so much better Photoshopped” “I worship the power of Adobe” but judging by the tone of the video, I think it’s a statement about how unrealistic and unattainable Photoshop perfection is.

Note: This is not Adobe Photoshop being used in this video. I use the term as readers will generally know of the verb ‘to Photoshop’.

Google Zeitgeist 2013

Google sums up the year 2013 in a minute and a half. Bit short but there are some truly remarkable moments in this short clip. Be inspired!

The Simpsons Halloween Opening Credits

Guillermo del Toro’s take on The Simpson’s opening credits.
Lots of nods to horror classics but my favourite one here is The Birds. Check it out:

See The Real Models For The Archer Characters

Archer

If you’ve not seen Archer before, I highly recommend it! Archer is a secret agent working for his mother’s agency ISIS. He is brash, obnoxious, a charmer and outrageous! The characters are hilarious, every single one of them.

What’s also great about this show is the animation. It’s Sterling work!

I stumbled on this webpage which shone some light as to where the animators get their character work from.

P.S. This show is definitely NOT for kids.

Super Slow Motion

I’ve just returned from the Barbican in London having experienced The Rain Room exhibit and discovered my Canon S100’s ‘super slow motion’ function and become a little obsessed by it.

I hadn’t much time to realise that the setting was on the lowest possible resolution whilst filming and therefore the quality is pretty poor for my effort (video number one), but a little investigating found that the cameras capable of delivering higher resolution similar effects costs £1000s and way out of my reach in terms of affordability. And so, here is a collection of an effect that has become a little bit of an obession and more appreciated by me due to its techincality. Enjoy….
