Surface to Structure

Clever origami creations to go on display in NYC.

These always blow my mind. Very clever and highly skilled.

Mindrelic – Manhattan In Motion

Thanks to my sister for directing me to this amazing time-lapse video of New York. Great accompanying soundtrack and some very clever camera work help to make this video really capture a sense of the bustle in NYC and all the little intricacies that might go unnoticed.

Mmmmmmm! Shoe!

Man alive, this guy must have the sweetest tasting shoe in all the land! *Gag, just threw up a little bit*

The video speaks for itself, a man feverishly licking the bejeezus out of his sandal. I must say the people in New York are very polite not to say anything. Click here or on the picture.

Fractal Zoom of NYC

Just back from the cinema having seen Limitless, the new Bradley Cooper movie about a guy who (down on his luck) takes a pill that opens up his brains potential to 100%

The film was pretty good, some great ideas and a neat plot, but the thing that stayed with me was the cinematography. The opening sequence uses a technique called ‘fractal zoom’ whereby the camera continues zooming in and in and in and in, in an infinite zoom effect. Hard to explain this so better watch said scene on YouTube to understand. Note how the camera flies in through taxi windshields and under scaffolding poles in one continuous zoom, an effect which should be impossible. The camera trickery is explained here in an interview with the FX guys.

New York Timelapse

This is a remarkable work of art. The hours and effort that must have went in to create this New York City time-lapse leave me in awe. It captures the essence of such a frenetic city so well and the choice of song works brilliantly too. Brings back lots of great memories from holidays past. What an amazing city!

Capturing New York

This video does a fantastic job in capturing the essence of this beautiful and vibrant city. New York is not my home, I have lived in London my entire life, but for some strange reason, be it social conditioning through film and television or a fantastical dream of living in the city that never sleeps, I have an affinity with New York City. I’ve visited the place only twice in my few years, but long to be able to experience it as a local. In my visits, I’ve got a taste of what it might be like to be a New Yorker and got a sense of the feel of the city. This video really illustrates the small nuances and subtleties that might pass some by, but highlights the small beauties that help make NYC what it is. The iconic views, the people and the vibrancy. I can’t wait until I get to experience it again.

Again, as with my previous post, some Flash-less devices may not be able to load this content but be sure to check it out on a PC when you get the chance.

Another very talented artist created this very playful animation drawing on retro video game inspiration. The compositing is amazing and clearly a lot of work went into making it.

As with The Third & The Seventh be sure to watch and in full screen. Link here.
