In case you missed it, recently, The Mill introduced The Blackbird, a remarkable piece of technology that can morph into almost any vehicle you desire in post. Not to be outdone, Blackburrow Creative has made the Millbird, an aerial version of the device, which promises "phenomenally average" results. The demonstration video is phenomenally funny.
For beginners, Adobe Premiere Pro CC can cause some shocking surprises when you open up the door to this editing powerhouse. There’s a wall of emotions from the many menus, options, and panels and it can feel like maybe there’s another person who could work with this program much better than you. Luckily, we have Billy the Tutorial Guy here to show us some basic editing techniques for getting the release we need making beautiful family home movies.
For me, commercials are supposed to be fun and entertaining while I wait for what I am actually watching to come back on. If they want to grab my attention and sell me on a product, what better way then to add Jason Statham acting as every single person in an action sequence? The boys at Energy BBDO have created a concept that is over the top and exactly what you would think of when star Statham is fighting his way through the busy streets. Check out the behind-the-scenes video and snapshots below to see how in depth they went.
If you're one of those people who hates drones, or you simply just enjoy watching things being destroyed, this is the video for you. Putting a piñata on a drone ends exactly as you'd expect it to, but before the inevitable destruction, it's quite a funny game of cat and mouse.
The media has done a great job of scaring the public of personal drones. Everyone believes that these flying toys are either spying on them while they shower or falling from the sky onto children's heads. Certainly remote control drones, like anything, have some level of danger, but things seem to be getting out of hand.
I was standing in a camera shop in the centre of Brisbane when the anxiety began to take hold. Lizzie and I have a shoot this afternoon, and from all accounts it should be awesome: rockin’ couple, engagement party, private boat, emerald green dress, and the big city lights of Brisbane as the backdrop. I have the tools, and I have the talent. So, why am I so nervous, and why do I love this feeling so much?
Our tutorial with Joey Wright on all things swimsuit photography and retouching is finally available, but we wanted to show you guys what goes into making a 20-hour tutorial. In this behind the scenes episode (number 6 of 7), we wrap up shooting in Curacao, and Joey travels to Charleston to start the retouching.
Everyone makes mistakes, this we know, but there are some unforgivable mishaps which plague the nightmares of filmmakers regardless of the scale and budget of the production. Some of these would include forgetting to pack an essential piece of gear, forgetting to hit record before a great take, or losing footage, but none of these can compare to dropping an Arri Alexa.
Snapping away at the bride and groom as they pose, walk, dance, or whatever, and the wedding photographer falls into... you can finish the sentence any way imaginable and then some. This latest example from Estes Park, Colorado saw photographer Nathan Welton fall through the ice at Bear Lake. A fresh layer of snow apparently hid the edge of the lake and Welton got, well, too close. Nevertheless, he's recounted his story several times and says he just kept shooting and got some interesting angles.
Dutch photographer Hans Eijkelboom captures the way we universally dress like bad extra's in 80's B-films. In his latest project, "People of the Twenty-First Century" (Phaidon, $35), the Dutch photographer shares the results of 20 years of skulking around the world's busiest streets. The images tell an amazing story of just how average we all are.
JP Sears is one of two accounts that I actually subscribe to on YouTube (the other is TJ Townsend). There's a good chance that you've seen his videos shared on Facebook before, most likely his one making fun of essential oils or his more recent one titled "If Meat Eaters Acted Like Vegans." This video, however, might be my new favorite as he takes us through some best practices for photographing your yoga poses for Instagram.
We've covered photographer Ty Foster's "Lick" series before, but his latest creation, "Lick Puppies," takes this a step further by using only puppies and their particularly tiny tongues. Every puppy in this series is busy licking its nose, just coming up from licking some organic peanut butter — the choice lick-inducing food of the viral animal photographer.
