Healing zombies turned out to be a lot simpler than we first thought. They just needed to relax and have some yoga classes. Who knew that yoga could have saved thousands of lives by converting heartless smelly killers to chilled people. Now all we need is a yoga place on Call of Duty- Zombie Mode and we’re good to go. Sarcasm aside, I liked the commercials creativity.
I once posted about Alex Roman’s amazing computer generated imagery capabilities. He made an advertisement video that was all CGI but looked stunningly realistic. Well it seems that was just the tip of the ice berg, as I stumbled on a mind blowing video he made a few years ago. While watching just keep in mind this is all computer generated, none of it is real.
I found this video that’s more like a mini-documentary about the making of “Dessert Seas” in Saudi Arabia. The content filmed will be then aired on National Geographic for over 370 million homes. Didn’t even know this much people still watch television.
Since Saudi Arabia is one of the most unexplored locations on Earth due to restrictions I was really looking forward to finding out what lives there. As it turns out Saudi Arabia is home to a globally important population of birds. The crew spent in total over 400 hours undersea.
Of all breathtaking video’s I have seen showing nature, this is my favourite. The sheer sight of this beauty gives calmness. This footage was shot from April 4th to April 11th, in Spain’s highest mountain. The golden clouds you see starting from 0:32 was actually a sandstorm which made the stars sparkle in an abnormal way. I highly recommend you watch in the video in high definition.
There are on average 24 to 30 frames in every second of a video. This means an image will switch to the next image at least 24 times every second. The minimum frame is 24 because this is when the human eye interprets the footage as smooth and without any cuts.
A Student from The American University of Paris took a totally different approach. He composed a video solely with still images shot with a Nikon D90 camera. I think the massive effort spent was worth it, as it turned out to be a creative piece of footage.
At first, the video is kind of boring. Some guys excited about climbing up mountains of snow, though the view looks great. Your jaw drops half way through the video, when one of them slips mistakenly from behind. Luckily the mountain they were on wasn’t that high, he later commented on his video and said he was fine.
Thanks to 3D mapping, 2 projectors and some really creative people, now you can have a different living room every day. They basically made a 360 projected room, then mapped all the objects in that room. This way they can customize colours, patterns and textures. The result was amazing, everything was originally white as seen in the beginning of the video.
This is indeed a majestic example of how far computer generated graphics has progress. Believe it or not this was all done behind a computer and none of it is real. Using mostly 3DMax Alex Roman was able to make uncompressed beauty. This is why I want to master 3D Max so badly. I have also posted about another video that uses 3D Max that is arguably just as good but in a different field.
