Time-lapse tilt-shift by Keith Loutit

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

Check out these beautiful little films by Keith Loutit

Spot the technique …
He’s shooting real live action, on HD to get that crisp sharp look.
He’s using time-lapse, perhaps one frame a second, which gives the jerky stop-motion effect.
On top of that he’s using the tilt-shift effect, he’s faking a narrow DOF by blurring the foreground and background, which makes it look like he’s shooting miniatures.
And he’s pumped up the saturation to emphasize unreality.

It’s done perfectly, I love it.

LAVATORY – LOVESTORY : dir Konstantin Bronzit : A lonely lavatory attendant finds a bouquet of flowers in her tip jar.
OKTAPODI : dir Emud Mokhberi and Thierry Marchand : An octopus fights to keep his beloved out of the cooking pot.

Crisis Of Credit by Jonathan Jarvis

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

More animated typographical deliciousness

Crisis Of Credit by Jonathan Jarvis

The Crisis of Credit Visualized is a series of animated shorts that explains the economic crisis by giving it form. It is also an argument for how designers have the unique ability to see a complex situation, then turn around and communicate it to others. By giving graphic form to the credit crisis, it becomes comprehensible. Not only do economic activities take shape, but new relationships can emerge between these shapes.
