  1. The results are pretty fabulously trippy seizure inducing!

    Add in some electro-funk music and a woman saying “Circles!” and you’ve got a perfect late-70s Sesame Street segment.

    Well, except for the rotating pr0n at the end. But hey, working artists have to find the angle that’s going to keep them in drills, right?

  3. Because the world is putting out high dynamic range light, the bright areas survive the significant motion blur. If you digitally spun a low dynamic range image the light sources would soon gray out into the rest of the scene.

  4. Cool…I did something similar but opposite while doing a photo project a few years back. My camera was on a tripod and I attached things to a drill and move it away from the camera while it was on long exposure.  Pretty much the same effect.

    Is this NSFW? Or perhaps NSFH (not suitable for hangover)

    Sounds like a challenge:  do the same thing in software post-processing.  I seem to recall a twist-o-matic tool a few years back that was supposed to anonymize faces until some math nerd figured out how to untwist the image.

    This reminds me of the last time I visited The Tenderloin.

    Uh … I feel dizzy now.

    Top Tip: look away when the drill is spinning down.

  10. OMG, it’s full of stars!

    Goes well with the new Pharaoh Overlord album.

    I can see the Japanese porn industry getting in on this…

    The first thing I thought was Dr. WHO?

    reminds me of when we used to make video feedback loops with a camera wired directly to a display.  if the camera is pointed at the screen, any light behind the display feeds back (same idea as microphone/guitar pickup sonic feedback when device is pointed at the speaker.)  It looks like infinite recursion, then when you point at the screen’s corner, it spins.  using the zoom and having a bright window behind the display can make cool stuff like this video.

    also, i wonder how many tries it took to get the lens centered.

    I like how they add “Artist” to his name, like this required insane skill and artistic insight that a normal human being couldn’t fathom.

    reminds me of nothing so much as that horribly bad British sci-fi series from the 70s called “Space 1999″. didn’t they use an effect like this to simulate time travel or teleporting or something? meh – hokey then n’ now!

    Wow, some cool effects there. Either hippies got a hold of a digicam, or Batman is stuck in between scenes!
