Action photographer Corey Rich photographs climber Alex Honnold:
>When Alex Honnold and I discussed the Nikon D4 project several months prior, we locked in on Joshua Tree National Park. Given the area's dry weather in late November, J-Tree seemed to be the obvious climbing location. During our first phone call, we simultaneously suggested Equinox as the climb. At 5.12c, this is a test piece in Southern California climbing. On a rope, Alex is a top climber. Without a rope (free soloing), he is in a class unto himself. If Equinox felt good with a rope, there was a high likelihood he would be up to free solo the climb. Again, much like Dane, if Alex did decide to free solo the route, we might only have one opportunity to capture the ascent. Obviously, the stakes are very high, when a fall could mean death. To our amazement, after Alex's first lap he announced "it felt good, actually pretty easy". He then proceeded to do it two more times in the last 20 minutes before the sun set. On the second day of shooting with Alex, the tables had turned. He climbed to the crux (the hardest section of the climb), fiddled with getting good finger jams, was not feeling it and backed down. After a 20 or 30 minute rest, he was back on the wall, did one lap and called it. I really value and respect Alex's ability to listen to his mind and body and not allow any external forces to influence whether he climbed again or not.
Video of the shoot here.
Hey guys, I see a lot of "neat, but idgi". The description speaks of an 'embodiment experience'. There's something going on in the subject's brains other than "oh I'm touching my arm but I'm seeing a woman's arm". With the actions mirrored I believe the subjects experience something more immersive; if we take a moment to recall this pain experiment then I think we'll appreciate this a little more: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19323139
tl;dr: remember that rubber hand pain experiment? i think the same thing happens here and the subjects actually "feel" the other subject's body.
e: the abstract if you're lazy:
>The visual capture phenomenon has recently been explored, especially in the context of the rubber-hand illusion (RHI)--an illusion in which tactile sensations are referred to an illusory limb. We have induced the RHI with the difference that tactile-painful stimuli were added in order to verify the interaction between vision, touch, proprioception, and pain. Thirty volunteers were used. We found that tactile-painful stimuli could cause the same illusion as purely tactile stimuli. This result suggests that localisation of pain may also be distorted by spurious visual cues.
e2: i'm going to spam this because it's so relevant. chrkchrkchrk found it, this video shows an amazing application where someone in a wheelchair is given the perspective of a dancer: https://vimeo.com/74254297
I think maybe what I'm really excited about is if this experiment takes it beyond the physical illusion to an emotional one. I don't know if I'm wording it right. So the arm feels like my arm, but in the perspective of the other subject can someone experience phantom emotions? I don't know, just rambling ideas, where this thing is going or could go.
She's almost 6 weeks old. Too young to be separated in our book, but supposedly the mother was stolen. My wife seems to be attracted to rescue cases. She is a blue pit. She has a great home with loving brothers and sisters. I promise.
EDIT- Video. Sorry I couldn't figure out how to flip the video.
I caught on to the same thing in 2012 when travelling. It's surprisingly hard to avoid vibration/jittering as it glides along. Though I imagine US travelator things are a bit smoother than Chinese/Burmese.
If you're interested, you can see the slight vibration towards the end of the video I made here: https://vimeo.com/60044205
/edit - sorry, I wasn't trying to one-up. Just thought it may be interesting.
I hope those responsible are prosecuted to the law's full extent.

I was the student. My driving instructor used to say weird shit to me in the car and he got all handsy. He used to constantly say I looked like his wife. One day, he said I had "interesting ears" and started massaging the right one while I was driving. Another time, I was having trouble hitting the gas pedal properly, so he demonstrated how my foot should be touching the pedal by massaging my upper thigh. Towards the end of the semester, I was running for student president, and he told me to watch a movie called Election, which he said was "about a girl fooling around with her teacher." Anyone who has seen it knows that's not really the plot, but the parallels with us were striking. In the movie, Reese Witherspoon is running for student president, and her social studies teacher, played by Matthew Broderick, fantasizes about screwing her. He goes by Mr. M in the movie. Guess what my driving instructor's name was? You can see clips from the movie here. One of the last things he said to me was, "I made ice cream." I said, "excuse me?" He then clarified: "It's supposed to be I made YOU scream. Do you like that?" Somehow, I passed my road test.
Here is the source, if anyone wants it.
This is real a real photo from a storm that took place last night (2014-03-27) in the Dallas, TX area. It was stitched from 8 photos in total.
Here is a time-lapse video of the storm...
Ha! If you listen to the music in the background that's me running my diabolo juggling routine. This was filmed in the Jonglier Katakomben in Berlin.
Edit: Here's a blast from my past https://vimeo.com/5504524
Here is the original video on the user's Vimeo. I would say it's pretty questionable that it's an ad, but I guess someone is free to message them and ask if they really care that much.
I also found this video which features some nice awkwardness with a slice of appropriation. good stuff.
I would concur - as many in Germany and Greater German could have attested - nothing illegal was actually done, the camps , treatment of prisoners, and more or less everything done there, was legal by reflection of the laws themselves.
In that respect the greatest tragedy in the last 20 years to my mind is that precisely when the US had "won" the long cold-war, the principles for which it had once fought were being actively subverted by some pretty serious sociopaths of our own.
One of my professors in film school direct a movie with Danny Trejo, 1995's <em>The Stranger</em>.
He told us one day about this small desert town they were filming in, and how you had to walk over a mile to get to the nearest business, a little gas station. He and Danny Trejo walked out there together one day and Danny started telling him about all the murders he has committed, one by one.
My professor suddenly got a dark ominous feeling of, "What if this guy is a legitimate psychopath, and he always tells somebody about his previous murders before killing them. Am I about to be killed and left for dead out here in the desert?"
I have two, I can back you up: they're fucking awesome.
Edit: Here is a video of Dexter freaking out when Netflix paused to buffer on Gustavo's face from Breaking Bad. I couldn't figure out why he was barking.
I think it's a fun idea and I'm glad someone tried it out. It's too bad we can't get over the tits/boner jokes to actually talk about it. I'm kind of out of my depth to speak on gender identity and the VR experience, but I'd love to read someone else talk about it. I'm excited to think about other applications. Like what do you think a KKK member would experience if he was partnered with an African American? Disgust and revulsion? Or would he gain some sense of humanity? I don't know. It's neat to think about.

This island is in Tokyo, where I live, and my company makes travel videos. I was thinking about going and doing my own little personal youtube... but if reddit was interested enough and posted on our vimeo page, I'm sure my boss would definitely consider sending our camera crew there and doing a proper tour...
Here's some other videos we've done around the Tokyo, this is the quality you could expect:

Has anybody on this site ever opened a history book?
You know what the major victory of the US civil rights movement was? Legally obstructing the private property rights of capitalists. That's what it meant when they had to take the "restricted" (i.e. "no blacks and no jews") signs down from their private property's windows. The owners said they didn't want black people at their lunch counters and, through some judicial abstract dance involving the commerce clause the society told them to eat a bag of shit. Basically the same restrictions are in effect in the UK.
If that is your bar for "communism" -- wow. Get ready for a shit buffet, because -- sweet jesus, take a look around -- the bourgeois scumbags are not getting off so easy this next coming round.
Communism. Do understand any of the words you're using or do you just kind of drift in and out? How do you even type?
The deleted reply below was so great I had to read it aloud and record it for posterity:

There are several reasons.
1. Some people hate the way the bow looks.
2. Shoelaces still come undone at random times when tied.
3. Bow knots can get caught in bike chains or on other objects.
4. Teachers re-tie kids shoes ALL day long.
5. Allows kids to get creative with their shoes because they can start lacing and finish lacing in any eyelet they would like. See our youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/LaceAnchorsTV
When you use Lace Anchors you can get a snugger fit than you can when you just tie it and slip it on. See this video. https://vimeo.com/60113510

Here's a Vimeo alternative, YouTube disliked it.
So aye, I was going to post the list before that wonderful AMA but the mod who set it up was like ''no, you're supposed to be a guest!'' so nothing came of it.
For 2011, I'd be up for discussions on this mostly-headed-board about what deserves to be slotted in.
If it's OK with you guys. If not, I'll fuck back from whence I came.
Idk if this is hip-hop related for here, but someone requested a combination of a video from Disney's Frozen and A$AP Ferg's Let It Go of the same name. I was bored as fuck so I decided to edit it.
It's not my best work and it's rushed as fuck, but it was fun to make. I put it on Vimeo because I don't even wanna know how bad my account would be struck by Disney so I didn't even bother.
Edit: Also, I did a few more hip-hop photoshops and covers.
EAT.PRAY.A$AP... It's exactly what it sounds and I would watch the fuck outta it
Also did a few for Because The Internet because it's a meh cover.
Black person here and I kinda disagree. Call me a backpacker, that's fine but I think it has more to do with standards than "fun allergies".
I am legitimately concerned with the direction of black people in general and the direction of hip-hop isn't helping(not saying it's the cause of black strife but correlations can be found). Not trying to start a huge debate about the relevance of that statement either but it is what it is.
Again, this is my opinion but I don't indulge in someone like Waka Flocka or Soulja Boy, not only because I think it's trash, but it CAN also be destructive to black people. Yeah, whites eat it up too, but they're are much more capable of removing themselves from the music entirely.
It certainly isn't a intellectual status for me. I'm too old to give a shit about a "status". I just like music that makes you think, I like thought-provoking lyrics, not necessarily "conscious" or "positive" rap but I don't like hearing the constant "Money, Bitches, Swag" theme. Sure, I have been known the rage to Gucci when the drinks start flowing and it's a good atmosphere, but when it comes to objective listening that shit is junk.
Dr Boyce Watkins and Micheal Eric Dyson two of my favorite black intellectuals had a debate over hip-hop and the accountability of the rappers. Very much worth your time. Not saying this will change how you look at this topic but it a very good listen if you have the time. I think everyone in the sub should listen.
This weekend I got completely smashed and passed out on my friends couch. They drew a swastika on my forehead (and a whole lot of dicks on my arm). I woke up after an hour and decided to walk home, they were laughing and told me not to go, but I got drunk angry and left anyway.
I woke up in the morning and saw the swastika. Hard to believe I'm still alive.
Anyone else see Days of Future Past? Quicksilver was sweet as shit.

If only common sense was practiced more universally. Whether they or anyone else agrees with the legality/illegality of it or not across the entire municipality, they could very easily go to any of the many other roads that aren't filled with houses and hidden driveways all around. There are plenty of long boarders coming down from Seymour, Burnaby mountain and sometimes Cypress even. Why take the risk with your own life when you'll be a fly squashed against a driver just not paying attention, or as bad if not worse, a small kid running out of a driveway. Some risks aren't just worth it.
And the same conclusion applies for the officer, who could have certainly dealt with it a bit better instead of swerving in the middle of the road.
I'm sure going down Seymour (or the many other roads with no intersections or houses, etc.) the exciting nature of the sport would be equally rewarding while a lot safer and less of a headache for everyone involved - https://vimeo.com/80317575 (for example)

Hey I shot this! It was on a morning commute in East London about a year and a half ago. For a few seconds I thought I had filmed someone's grisly death. Guh. Not sure how clear it is at the end but his front wheel was run over by the bus and bent into a 90 degree angle. You can see him throw it down against the building at the end. May be easier to see here.
Shot a timelapse of it recently for a larger project, this might give you a better idea of why it got its nickname: https://vimeo.com/87526301 Sorry it's not more cleaned up, it was a private draft till I saw this post. You can see a close-up photo here: http://helioblog.tumblr.com/image/76355606250
Give credit to the people who actually did this and not someone's spammy YouTube channel. Much higher quality and it doesn't have the auto-stabilization applied, so you see more of the frame. All it takes is a little bit of googling folks.
I came to /r/SRSsucks to see if this was posted here and, sure enough, it was posted 1 minute ago.
Edit: They posted a mirror.
Edit 2: It's funny how they find these comments so offensive, yet they're perfectly happy to copy and paste them and make a video showcasing the so-called worst of them.

Just to clarify I didn't post that image. but I have done a bunch of 3d from 2d animation. I just finished a doc that was full of them, there's an example at 1:10 in this trailer
Edit here's a better example from the same doc So in this case I cut out the drummer, and the two guitarists. If you look closely you can see the curtains behind the guitarist to the right is all wavy because I had a hard time cloning the curtain behind where he originally was in the photo.
The exact same way you do it on the website

Upvote reddit threat with vimeo link to the full interview in English:
I have no idea whether you should comply or not.
Whatever you do, even if they take it down on YouTube, you can always put another copy of it on vimeo.
Also, again in the worst-case scenario, maybe various men's rights sites can host other copies of the video (assuming they are technically equipped to do so). You could ask avoiceformen.com, for instance.
I see that you have only one video on YouTube, so you wouldn't lose much if they decided to remove it (provided that all they did was remove it). If they take it down without your consent, you can add that as evidence of feminist censorship to any men's rights site on which you decide to upload the video.
It's a Samoyed. Related to Malamute. Smart, friendly dogs, very dependent on human contact. A few day ago I put up a video of a sad, lonely samoyed/malamute crossbreed.
Am în arhivă (dar mi-e prea lene să caut acum) un filmuleț de 5 minute pe tema "români stranieri la grătar".
Acum câțiva ani eram cu niște prieteni prin dealurile Moldovei, la un mic picnic spontan (deci fără grătar).
Eram undeva la marginea unei păduri. În timp ce filmam, de pe un drum forestier, îmi apar în cadru două mașini. Amândouă cu 50-60 km/h, ridicând mult praf.
Mașinile opresc la vreo 50 de metri de noi. În 30 de secunde, toată lumea e debarcată și manelele încep să duduie.
Într-un minut, grătarul fumegă și femeile strigă "Giovanni, veni qua!" după un plod.
La un moment dat, au început să danseze și să chiuie.
A fost cea mai rapidă desfășurare de grătaragii la care am asistat. Oamenii ăia nu glumeau. Grătar iz SRS BSNS.

I was talking to a friend who tests technical fabrics for a big outdoor clothing company. He was describing what makes the Flyknit unique.
It's not really the material, but rather how it's manufactured. The entire upper can be constructed at one time with a machine. That's going to save Nike the resources of building the upper in multiple stages (paying for labor and material). Compare that to the multiple stages it takes to build these New Balance shoes. In theory, there are fewer resources wasted in the Nike upper because of the knit design. Of course they don't need to lower the cost - I understand that they actually raised the price.
Getting back to this shoe comparison, I do think Addidas are trying to cash in on the knitted look. But it seems funny that they have an upper with knitted sections that are still assembled together. It's easier to create a shoe that has knitted components than it is to copy to algorithms, programs and machines that Nike has.
As to what looks better, I'll leave it up to all you guys.
Ok - here is my submission. Had fun on this rainy day putting this together. Looking forward to checking out what other folks come up with too. It really is absurd that apple is doing this.
Love this community!
So I take it from all of this you're actually running a successful label and have managed to make this transition without the sales then?
I mean what you're talking about is a 360 deal with the artist for merch, touring, royalties and publishing in order to secure those "alternative" revenue streams, and as a small independent label then no artist in their right mind will accept a 360 deal from you and I don't blame them.
I'm quite happy to not run a label any more - no more burning money and time I don't have ( on merchandising, radio pluggers, guerilla marketing teams, street teams, server costs, management and all that other bullshit you still need to do with a staff you can't afford to pay ) the "amazing ability of that technology" isn't free in business once you take it away from being a hobby. It costs. Apple FTR had access to absolutely bucket loads of cash.
As I said though I make all of my income from live sound ( especially corporate work ) putting out my own music and doing the odd oldskool gig. And I'm OK with that.
Trying to run a label with no product revenue stream is just not worth the hassle and building that with anything other than product sales requires financial backing which I don't have and/or want the responsibility of anymore, because if it goes tits up in the real world, I ( as the label owner ) am the one who has to deal with the bankruptcy shit.
I don't know if you would qualify Jeffrey Tucker as a serious thinker, but he had this to say in an AMA when someone asked him who he thought the most important libertarian of our time was.

I shot timelapse in Rio, Brasilia, Natal, Chapada Diamantia and Sao Paulo. The footage is all mixed in together- as a Brazilian, do you recognize some of these locations? To americans- most of them won't know where or what they are other than the Rio shot. I was wondering if this rough edit is enjoyable to watch for Brazilians. Especially, is the opening shot of the Nacional Congresso recognizable? I want the first shot to be attention getting.
thanks for any thought or reply you have; I'm planning on finishing it up tonight and go live with it tomorrow. :-)
Dude's a badass but he's also incredibly lucky, he could've very well hit the rocks before being able to open his parachute. And even then, the wind could've easily pushed him into the wall like this guy.
Lighting plays a massive part. Shows like the big bang theory are shot in a studio with a simple lighting set up that basically just lights everything from every angle, this allows them to quickly shoot a scene without having to change the lights for each shot. Game of thrones on the other hand will light each shot individually which takes a lot of time but gets you really nice scenes.
The cameras used also makes somewhat of a difference. Game of Thrones is shot on the Arri Alexa which is also used on movies like Skyfall. Without getting too technical the cameras used in shows like Game of Thrones work by using something called a full frame sensor that can film lots of things without distorting the image in anyway. It also give the camera operator the ability to adjust anything as he/she sees fit. It also means things take longer to set up and the more time you waiting around for things to be set up the more its going to cost you to film.
A lot of things are also done in what is called 'The Grade' this is when everything has been filmed and been edited together someone who is called a 'online editor' (can also be called things like color editor or something) will go through the shots and adjust various settings to make the pictures look either dark and or gloomy or bright and happy depending on what works with the scene. This process again can take a lot of time so some cheaper shows with skip this step all together. This short video shows some of the controls that an online editor might use
Ah, that takes me back. I spent a whole year building a game level based on reference pictures of that place for my senior project in design school. I had to fill in lots of detail from my imagination since I've never been there, but it still feels like I used to live there or something.

Petite dark haired women who can dance, drink and rock out. Arty and creative women with really good fashion sense and an ability to pull-off their own sense of style. Good hearted. That was my type during my twenties. A photo of my first crush, taken when I was 21 (a close buddy of mine in the photo ... I'm the only one who remembers this embrace of the three of us, but I digress ...). I made out with (or more) over half the woman in her social circle, but never her. So intense in her presence I shook like a leaf. She was the first woman to teach me how to dance!
In my thirties I only loved you if you were a mountain that extended beyond the treeline. Or a woman with the physical fitness to do long backcountry trips.
I'm much, much less specific in my forties. To quote the transformation that Tolstoy whent through in mid-life, "The only way to be happy is to love, to love self-denyingly, to love everybody and everything, without any rules; to throw out from oneself on all sides, like a spider, an adhesive web of love to catch in it all that comes: an old woman, a child, a peasant, or a policeman."
Came here to say the same thing. I'll add a little more info.
You have your key light and your fill light in a traditional lighting set up.
When you're outside or when there is a lot of ambient light and your lamps aren't enough to overpower them sometimes your best option is to take away light to create contrast.
Contrast is important especially on faces. It adds depth to people and helps to put life into your actors. Ever hear people say something is "flat"... it is almost always the lighting.
The most common way to get negative fill is to pop a floppy up on 1 side of the actor and get it as close in to the shot as possible. You can also chuck a piece of cheap black cloth up onto a C-stand arm as well if you don't have any floppies.
here is a little video
Negative fill is awesome and is super cheap and easy. Perfect when you don't have power and you're outside on a cloudy day.
I brought my Korean girlfriend to visit my family in NJ last year. Think Coffee was on her list of places to visit in NYC.
Infinity Challenge is a fantastic show though. One of the few Korean shows that I watch.
Here is another clip from that episode. You may recognize this man from the Gangnam Style video:
This is not the rolling shutter effect. This is Slit-Scan Imaging. There is a time delay between one part of the frame and another. A similar example can be seen here. It is based off of Slit-Scan photography. An interesting effect better explained here
*ninja edit: I should say this example is most likely a filter applied in post.
Apparently you've never skated NYC. Jokes aside, embrace it man. Small companies who sponsor pro riders with an emphasis on style over skill are blowing up and its awesome. Watch this for a good laugh. Then watch this and get hyped
He started out as a reality show buffoon, now he's a legitimate rap artist releasing his highly anticipated debut executive produced by one of the most highly regarded producers in music right now.
Even Fonzworth Bentley couldn't build a sustainable career off of "From G's to Gents"
'Timelapser' here! I produced a time-lapse video last year: A Day in Denver. I have another video coming out very soon for the One Day on Earth campaign and am thinking of starting another video!
I agree with this 100%.
I got a guy from Fiverr to do a voiceover for me and my commercial turned out great, it sounds REALLY REALLY professional.
This is my commercial so you can see the voice:
I only spent around $75, I had to pay $50 more than normal because I needed it within 24 hours (left doing the commercial to the last minute) :P
the fact that i cannot see this gif will not stop me from saying that this BAFTA interview is as hotsweatysexy as it is interesting and enlightening.
and if for some reason you can't watch this in its entirety (with the only acceptable reason for that being you keep having to pause it because you are just too turned on to pay attention) please go to 55:07.
or you could go to your grave never having heard the most beautiful sound ever made by a human being.
Don't want to kill your buzz or be a douchebag, mate, but just fyi I recently released a video of his season: https://vimeo.com/84492722
Made a few good saves since though, up to you if you want to make a new one.
"Swing and a long drive..."
As always though, honorable mention to "WHAT WAS NOOK LOGAN THINKING? WHAT WAS HE WATCHING? WHERE WAS HE GOING?"
I just graduated in December so it's weird having absolutely nothing to do (except looking for work that is).
I also did a documentary on my dad in my final semester in my film doc class. Check it out here if you guys would like
I dont know if these are the best but they are a good start, at least visually. Reveire kind of started it all. Casulo looks amazing. And The Last Three Minutes is my favorite story.
If that is the case, I would definitely suggest not watching Last Minutes with Oden or Man's Best Friend.
The first dog we owned was named Millhouse, I have no idea what kind of dog he was, just that he was white, he was fiercely loyal, and when we got a puppy near his 15th birthday, he took it upon himself to teach the puppy how to dog. Because of Millhouse, we had two awesome dogs, back to back.
One morning I fed him and our other dog, and I noticed that he didn't get up to come eat his food, but it was cold, he had some arthritis, so I figured he would eat when he warmed up a bit. I gave him a blanket and some pets and went on about my morning. I noticed a while later that he still hadn't eaten, and he was still lying in the same spot. So I went over to his food bowl and called him. He picked himself up with his front paws and started to try and drag himself over to me, apparently his back legs somehow had become paralyzed and he couldn't get up. I lost it, and I just knew what was going to happen next.
My Mother is a nurse, and we opted to have a mobile vet come to us, but we prepped him and my Mother gave the shot that put him to sleep, after we had all spent hours that day with him, giving him as much affection and as many treats as he could stand, and were all there when he fell asleep for the last time. The new dog was almost two at that time, and he cried for days because he missed his buddy.
Hey look, it's a random Tuesday and I am crying about my old dog.
I got to be there with my son the day they flew it in. Was an amazing sight. By blind luck I positioned us right in the flight path of the first flyover. Unfortunately as you can hear at the end of the clip he wasn't as excited as I was.
Own your limitations. When I was a kid all I had was me, a video camera and I could pull in my brothers or a friend as actors. Even today at 39, I am wearing multiple hats. I just made this… https://vimeo.com/50881570
…and i was the writer, director, cinematographer, fight choreographer, prop maker, did the actors' make-up, VFX artist, sound effects editor, colorist, and more. But more important than how to make this one short is to do a volume of work. Do as much as you can as often as you can to gain the sort of experience that will enable you to close that gap between the movie you envision in your head and what you're able to execute in the real world. Ira Glass has this advice for beginners and says it better than I could. https://vimeo.com/24715531
I pulled the cord 3 times, guess it was broken. I have an extra minute of nothing while I was waiting for it to say stop requested but I trimmed it for you. I can do another video tomorrow night if you'd like.
edit - not even a consolation thanks. Why did I even bother. I did something to help you and you wouldn't even take half a second out of your day to type thanks. Dick.
I think you've got some good stuff in here, but the problem is you have some sub-par stuff too. In a reel, you want to put nothing but your absolute best. I'd definitely recommend going back and looking at every shot you have and asking yourself if it "says something". Sounds silly but if the shots don't say anything, then they shouldn't be in your reel. Also keep in mind reels are usually no more than 2 minutes long: simple, to the point, shows nothing but the best.
EDIT: Here are 3 reels - 1 of which is mine, and 2 are my friends - for you to look at just to give you an idea of what's in a reel. We are all slightly older than you so you can kind of get an idea of what your "peers" are doing, so to speak. One Two Three

How did he do that?
I tried to upload it last night, but it said it couldn't be shown due to violations, so I uploaded it on vimeo instead.
But I really want to upload it to Youtube as well, because that's where this fight should take place.
EDIT: Nevermind, got it to work now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Y2q1-Stpws
Please reupload it to your own channel to show support.
Check out this and this. For more of a painted texture.
Or you can render meshes to texture and paint them over.
Basically, just drawing on each frame. You could do this with an After Effects stroke filter. Just draw what you want on top of a layer over each frame and then apply the filter to outline the paths.
I'm sorry I'm not doing a great job describing this process. I guess that's why I do motion graphics instead of writing.
Like this video shows sort of. https://vimeo.com/32478431

So some of you guys may have noticed i haven't been around a whole lot. and some of you may know why (it hasn't really been a secret, but this place is so big its easy to get overlooked). My dad died three weeks ago yesterday, and while I am still incredibly far from ok, I am finally done putting together his service. my sister and mother and i worked extremely hard to make it something that would truly honor him the way it should. and now that its done, i feel like i can sort of return to the world of the living. I wanted to thank all of you for your support and love during this incredibly hard time. and I'd like to share with you guys, a little bit of what we did for him.
Here are some pictures from my dad's service.
and a video of a poem by Robert Service.
There's this one I made earlier that's similar: https://vimeo.com/64762621
It was just recently I decided to try and really focus on horror and get good at it.
Judging by the reactions so far it seems I'm on the right track at least.
Make sure you watch the other videos in the series. One per month, so you have 3 more to watch so far.
I find the life of an artist a bit of an interesting one. This guy is far more skilled than Warhol, yet his copy sells for much less than Warhol's copy. An artist basically learns from copying. The ones who become good artists excels at copying everything. From copying the illusion of life to copying something so real, they become counterfeit. But then again, everything is a remix.
Anyway, the point I'm trying to raise is how hard it is to get by as an artist. The reddit stereotype is that they could graduate from college and become a barista. But is it really that bad/hard to make it as an artist?
If you have no idea what BSurfaces is, it was one of the rare commercial plug-ins for Blender, and was well worth the money.
Its a modeling and retopology tool that generates very clean quadrilateral results. Really the best way to get to grips with what it offers is to watch the video
I recently worked with Pete Robertson, the guy who did the amazing steadicam shot in Atonement. He's quite a dude. The way he controls the steadicam is amazing. The rig itself is quite a mindfuck. It's hanging there in midair, barely attached to him, but it looks like it's moving against pressure. It makes my brain hurt.
I loved when Jim James performed A New Life with The Roots on Fallon. ?uest tweeted afterwards about wanting to do a collab LP with Jim. That would be Incredible.
Not indie, but Frank Ocean performing Bad Religion on Fallon was great! I actually went to the show the day after. I was really bummed I missed that performance.
So .. here's the Timelapse video I was talking about yesterday. I know this is very bleh.. but this my first time, that too on my phone. Just 15 secs
Edit: How can make it play on HD by default? Or is it playing automatically?
Mod from /r/shorthorror here. Check us out. That's what we specialize in, and I personally actively look for.
Vimeo is also excellent for this kind of thing. Let me start you off with a good one called "Bedbug"
There's also the top voted short which gets posted quite a bit here on /r/horror, called "Light's Out"
