This incredible "must-see" piece was filmed over 12 days in New Zealand's beautiful and desolate Tongariro National Park. Interestingly, this is Jared Brandon's first attempt at filming time lapse - and what a stunning result! This particular location in New Zealand's North Island is one of the most picturesque places on Earth, and is known for its challenging and temperamental climate which is beautifully captured throughout the film. Now, dim the lights and check out Jared's amazing work...
Recently we received a number of inspiring examples of motion picture work via our Contact form. The quality and breadth of the work is amazing and we just had to share a collection of our favourite videos. These artists have an ability to tell a story and create a mood using video and audio. Here are some examples of how real-world footage, animation or a combination of both can be used to great effect. We'll let the work speak for itself, and remember to support the artists by adding your comments below. Enjoy!
Kinetic typography (or motion typography) is described as the art of animated text. These kinetic typography videos are quickly becoming very popular for a reason - the outcomes are visually stunning. It is a great source for discovering inspiration in an unusual way that portrays the technique of combining typography with evoking a sense of motion. In this article, we showcase the top 15 kinetic typography videos today using various techniques. Enjoy!
Malcolm Clarke is a creative chameleon - he is both a talented editor and a photographer. In this artist showcase we explore Malcolm's work in film. As an editor it is Malcolm's job is to enhance and refine story in a creative and considered way. The experience he has gained in the past seven years has provided him with the necessary skills to develop meaningful projects of his own. Here are three of Malcolm's short video productions with accompanying notes in his own words.
This short (almost) two minute film/video serves as absolutely brilliant inspiration, and really shows off what filming and editing is capable of. The project is all about concealing valuables, secrets, bad habits and personal information in our workplaces. Here, hidden spaces/messages were created within eight general objects such as wood boards, lamps and disposable coffee cups. What do you think of this video? I personally loved it, and watched it for the second time right after it finished the first time. A lovely piece of work.
Timelapse photography seems to have really taken off in the last few years, so I felt it was time to put together a showcase of some incredible timelapses from around the web. Some use a time-lapse dolly to create dramatic moves, but you can also do a lot in post as long as you have 1) and interesting subject and 2) great composition. Anyway, the dedication that went into these following pieces is fantastic and I'm thrilled to share this round up with you all. Enjoy!
If you've liked a bunch of the stop motion videos we have previously featured here on TIB, you will love this one. Produced by Carlos Lascano, this story follows a couple of pencil-outlined birds that escape from a little girls drawing, leading us through the life that she dreams of. Viewing the making of the video is highly recommended, and can be seen at Carlos' site. Here you can see the amount of love and work that went into this project, from the creation of the characters and buildings, to the hundreds of different photographs that were then pieced together to create this beautiful piece.
Kinetic typography is just a fancy word for "moving text". As the name says this animation technique mixes motion and text. The text is presented in a certain way to convey or evoke an idea or emotion in the viewer, making it work well for songs, movie quotes, information and TV commercials. Kinetic typography is often spotted in movie credits. The great thing about a good kinetic typography piece is that by using just typography, sound, colours and animation they evoke strong feelings in the viewer. I have come across many good kinetic typography pieces on YouTube which inspired this showcase.
Stop motion animation is a technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. This post showcases fifteen clever stop motion animation examples, featuring thousands of separate images when put together. Find the time to watch them all - they serve as incredible inspiration for all of you creative people! These really are just crazy!
