Movie Mondays: Sounds of Surroundings (the Wikisinger)

Wow. This is amazing.
As a photographer, I get super exited when I’m in environments of interesting lighting. I’ve often have wondered if people of different professions/passions are always judging/taking in micro-aspects of places they are in: are Foresters always seeing what types of wood are in the buildings and furniture around them? Do Dentists sneak peeks at strangers’ teeth? This is a great representation of what curiosity of differences made manifest with sound and singer. Strikingly well done. Beautiful.

This guy sings the same song in 15 different places. Hear what happens!
No artificial reverb added.

The Wikisinger sings the same song in different environments experimenting with natural reverb, early reflections and short delays.

One of the scenes is recorded in an anechoic chamber without any sound reflections.

Movie Monday: Breath Again

Well this is disturbing and odd. Thoughtful? Maybe. Interesting? I’d say so.

Only two have ever been seen. This is super cool. We know nothing about our world.

Great little piece about creating a firm foundation that is also open to growth HERE.

The Future of the News Business: Marc Andreessen

I don’t agree with all of this, but there’s a lot to think about. A couple statements made the gears in my head grind in a different way, which is a good thing.

Read it HERE.

Movie Mondays: Chronemics

Visually and spatially very clever:

Reminds me of Spy vs Spy in a playful way. But I can’t help wonder if this tension – everything being a battle – isn’t a projected, human trait?

I hope that on higher levels, there is balance between “others” – not always conflict.

Movie Mondays: We Go Forward

Wow. It is all about the story. I mean, style is a huge vehicle to move it forward, but wow. Story and metaphor.
This is amazing.

Movie Mondays: Seagull Skytrails from Parker Paul

I LOVE this:

So many ideas come to mind. Perspectives on time and space and imperceptible trails we leave behind…

Every Frame a Painting – The Bad Sleep Well

This is an amazing lesson in framing and composition. Hitchcock’s quote is classic but never gets old.
