I have become a huge fun of Polish cinema since I discovered some beautiful experimental short-films shot in the 70s and 80s. Even though my supreme masters remain the Russians A. Tarkovsky and A. Sokurov (will post something about them in the future) I believe Polish cinema has produced amazing movies over the past decades (everyone know the work of K. Kieślowski for example).
Pawel Pawlikowski’s IDA is another fantastic movie from Poland. DOP Lukasz Zal’s frame composition is impeccable and overall the cinematography is simply brilliant. I thought you might enjoy watching the trailer, the release of the DVD/Blu-Ray in UK is imminent.
We have all seen 3D projection mapping on static objects such as on buildings, parked cars, on mannequins and on indoor spaces etc but Face Hacking combines 3D projection mapping with face movement in real-time. Imagine a temporary tattoo made of light that can change on demand!
Here is a fascinating behind the the scenes look at the concept and location of Sony’s ‘Ice Bubbles’ video for their 4K Ultra HD Televisions. This incredible natural phenomenon of bubbles crystallizing and turning into hollow blocks of ice while in the air is captured on video for the first time.
An important part of any film is often it’s title sequence. Setting the tone, atmosphere and mood for the first scene and the rest of the feature.
Some of our favourite movie title sequences are from the legendary Saul Bass; Anatomy of a Murder, Vertigo, The Man with the Golden Arm, The Seven Year Itch etc…
There are too many to list them all so we have put together a small selection that we think should get a mention. These movie and television show title sequences are from the past and some are more recent ones. Let us know if there are any that we have missed that you think should be included. Enjoy!
We strongly believe that Color Grading is a fascinating art form and essential part of the post-production process. It is not that rare to see productions where color grading is neglected and sometimes its importance is even totally ignored. We thought many of you might enjoy and appreciate watching these “Before and After” color grading examples from the independent feature film “The House On Pine Street” directed by Aaron and Austin Keeling. Colorist: Taylre Jones.
