Tilt-Shift Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro

February 26, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Though tilt-shift photography is widely overused these days, this clip by Keith Loutit and Jarbas Agnelli could be one of the best examples of the method I’ve ever seen. Shot during the 2011 Carnival parade in Rio de Janeiro and set to music by Agnelli that evokes Phillip Glass, The City of Samba turns this annual spectacle of staggering scale and proportion into a delightfully miniaturized version that feels as though thousands of toys are tromping through a kitchen cabinet. The parade starts around 2:00 but do yourself a favor: switch it to HD/full-screen, and watch it all the way through. (via vimeo)

Love Is Making Its Way Back Home: A Stop Motion Animation Using 12,000 Sheets of Construction Paper

February 23, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This great new video for Josh Ritter’s Love Is Making Its Way Back Home was directed by Erez Horovitz and involves the meticulous animation of over 12,000 laser-cut pieces of construction paper. Via Etsy:

A team of nearly twenty artists, editors, directors and product assistants ushered the video into being. The group started with storyboarding and computer animation before converting the digital graphics to paper cutouts (frame by frame), photographing those 12,000 cutouts and then stitching them together into four minutes of paper animation.

You can learn more about how it was done and see some great behind the scenes shots on Josh Ritter’s blog. (via etsy)

A Mirrored Music Video for Yuksek

February 22, 2012

I’m digging the wacky mirrored approach used in this new video for French musician Yuksek produced by the clever team over at SoLab and directed by Romain Segaud. The creation of typography and faces using reflections was inspired, and I also love that the making of video is the exact same shots revealing the missing off-stage production. (via fubiz)

Inception Park: Hovering Roller Coasters Fly Above the Streets of Buenos Aires

February 16, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This is almost too good for words. A wonderfully clever video directed by Fernando Livschitz of Black Sheep Films, in which hovering roller coasters fly through the streets of Buenos Aires, completely untethered to tracks. I can’t help but wonder if the video somehow had its genesis in the green screen High Wheel video from last year. Regardless this is a splendid evolution. (via vimeo)
