    do i need a password to watch the vid?! what is it, i’m curious!

    • no its a public video on youtube, not sure why the vimeo version is suddenly private

  • dana

    can’t write this article w/o giving us the password. not cool.

    • see above (it would be pointless for me to intentionally share a private video)

  • Dactrtr

    duuuude, we need that pass

    • when i posted the video originally it did not require a password i’ve just updated the link! not sure why they did that

  • forrest ethington

    Looks like we’re finally going to get the “THEY LIVE!” musical we’ve all been waiting for. I’m not kidding. This needs to happen.

  • forrest ethington

    The OMOTE / REAL-TIME FACE TRACKING & 3D PROJECTION video is gorgeous. Definitely need an update to when the face-hacking video is visible.

  • Lord 3Clod

    that’s cool.

  • eawesterhuis

    I loved that Leopard face. That would be awesome to have your own personal drone to project that on your face for when you go out at night.

If you grew up in the 80s you’re really gonna like this Instagram account. Steelberg takes current films and makes fantastic retro VHS covers for them. Many of you will be too young to have ever gone to a store to rent a video but seeing these makes me kinda miss the whole movie-choosing ritual. Have a look at more VHS covers below.
