ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Reid Gershbein says: "I have just taken the low quality video from a flip camera and was seeing how interesting I could quickly make it with some inspiration from tilt-shift techniques."
Flip Camera Tilt-Shift Visual Experiments
I was just thinking of Mr. Rogers. I wonder how it would look in 3d. Film it with 2 cameras about 7 feet apart with tilt-shift and put together in 3D format.
The secret? Make everything blurry!!
Seriously, do any of these photographers know that you can photograph real miniatures & models without obscuring 90% of the detail with unnecessary blur?
Was just about to make the same observation about Mr Rogers. Oh the memories. :)
I can’t find any Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood in syndication anymore. I hope they are gearing up for a DVD release. And yes, this photo is totally reminiscent of the model train from the show.
Love tilt-shift & very cool to see it used in video… but can’t stop thinking, “I’m so going to see this in a future Gondry film.”
I LOVE this effect. Here is one I did of a courtyard as seen from a Hotel room window in Montreal Canada.
Very interesting with a catchy little tune he wrote in Propellerhead’s Reason.
heres a tilt shift san francisco picture i did a while ago. first heard about it on boing boing
“Seriously, do any of these photographers know that you can photograph real miniatures & models without obscuring 90% of the detail with unnecessary blur?”
Yes. do you understand that what makes large things take on the illusion of model photography is the very narrow depth of field that happens with MOST photographs of miniatures?
This is actually part of the visual tests for the next feature
film that I am doing. So, hopefully you’ll see it in that film
before a Gondry (who totally rocks) film. :)
It certainly looks like a wonderful day in the Neighborhood.
very cool. i love the colors. http://keithloutit.com is worth a look too. Cute videos of boats that look like toys.
I just put the song up for free so that anyone can download or stream it.
