Kino-Present (collaborative video)

A participatory video project Kino Present. The graphic of the process involved is useful as reference point for visualising projects in the OVE studio.

Kino-Present is an international Quantum Filmmaking project inviting everyone, anywhere and anytime to the co-creation of video-collages, by using domestic web based, wireless and mobile technologies.

To participate you can upload your own 15 second video-clips (Format: 3gp/H.264) or you can send to us full videos or rough footage of any length to:

Once we receive your videos we will be broadcasting them via Bluetooth to the mobile phones of the general public in the public domain, from which they will be uploaded onto the website ready to be edited online.



Sketches to models

Nice example of sketches being converted into models.

"On the Run" Creative Process – Part One from The Rusted Pixel on Vimeo.

This is the process from sketches through to modelling, uv mapping and the final models. Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive throughout the process. I love you and can't wait to start animating part two!

Meerkat – video tweets

a recent video service that works with tweeting

the rules

from the article: ‘Eight ways brands can add Meerkat into their marketing mix’, march 24, 2015

The idea behind the Meerkat app is simple; it lets users stream live video from a mobile device directly to Twitter, allowing other users to subscribe to and attend the live streams. It doesn’t just broadcast video content though, it also lets you have real time interaction with other users watching the stream.

There are four psychological reasons that we as humans tend to be drawn to video:

There is a brain function that hard-wires us into using faces as the focal point for gathering information.
The human voice can help our brains convert straightforward information into more meaningful content.
Emotions shown through body language are appealing and can be contagious.
Body movements can grab attention and keep viewers focussed.

Twitter online video hack

Description from the article:

The Twitter account @555uhz was/is a script that posted sequential stills of the major motion picture Top Gun every half hour on the :15 and :45s. The twice-an-hour rate of posting is the account’s title: .000555 frames per second is .000555 Hertz is 555 microHertz (uHz). It was a flipbook: spool up and down the account at about 24 frames per second (the typical framerate of a movie and the rate at which human eyes cease perceiving blackness in between frames) and you would kinda-sorta be watching the movie, at least a muted version of it in segments whose lengths are subject to how much of the account you have loaded in your browser. More likely, you’d be beginning to wonder what watching a movie even is.
