By day Willie Witte is a documentary filmmaker working on a PBS series, but he uses his evenings to experiment with analog visual techniques. None of the visuals in this video are computer generated. Watch below!

    Not computer generated? That was all made on a computer. Do you mean no 3d Computer models and animation?

      sure – if you want to split hairs i could have said effects instead of visuals so as not to imply the video as a whole -obviously the editing and uploading onto the Internet requires a computer. the point i am trying to highlight is that the creativity is taking place in front of a camera lens. cheers

    Confused… Is the implication here that this is all a continuous take? I don’t understand what is meant by “None of the visuals in this video are computer generated.” – if regular non-linear editing is being used then this is pretty straight forward. Clever, but not at all baffling. If there is no editing then, holy hell I have no idea how it was done.

    I’m still trying to figure out how you did this! Great work.

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
