Apologies for not posting on Friday. I was mega busy filming and I didn’t have a chance to sit down and write a post. Anyway, without further ado, here’s … Continue reading
This week I want to talk about something different from the usual “arty” videos; an advertisement. I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while but I keep forgetting. This is incredible, I absolutely love it. It’s an advertisement for the HTC One phone. The ad depicts a fashion shoot, conducted while falling from a plane. The shoot is done by a photography student, on the phone. The ad itself is shot very creativity, with additional people (apart from the photographer, model and cameraman) free falling with smoke canisters on their backs to emit plumes of smoke as they fall. This adds to the overall drama of the piece. The camera moves with the model, as she moves through the plane and jumps out and then seamlessly cuts to a wide shot of the photographer photographing and directing her. This ad would make me want to buy the phone, I suppose that’s the sign of a good advertisement, for maybe I was just hooked as soon as I heard “photography” (tell me what you think in the comments! :P).
What do you think of this ad? Does it make you want to buy the phone?

Chai Media are filming our friend who’s a kayak-er next week so I’ve been looking up videos for inspiration. This one is particularly amazing!
This is incredible. It’s a time-lapse video put together entirely by shots taken by the astronauts on board the International Space Station. It shows the rotation of the earth and the stars from the window of the ISS and from a space shuttle.
This week it’s Michael Ostermann’s fashion illustrations. These are amazing, they are both disturbing (some models have their mouths sewn shut) and beautiful at the same time. The digital … Continue reading
This incredible. It’s a time-lapse of European cities. It’s shot so well, there’s no flicker between shots, the transitions are smooth. Plus it’s shot with the camera I own, so it’s amazing to see what can be done with it!
This week it’s “Shelving the Body” by Darragh Casey. This is really interesting, it’s a different take on the “I’ll photograph my family with their possessions” kind of shoot. The … Continue reading
This week it’s “Much Better Now”. This is incredible, it’s a mixed-media short film about a bookmark who falls out of his book and goes on an amazing adventure! The character itself is quite likable, I think and the narrative is solid and runs through the whole video.
