This video, directed by Grant Singer, wins the award for most unexpected moment (2 minute mark), someone explain to me what is happening in this video haha. Love the combination of the choreography by Nina McNeely, and the weird masks by Barney Burman. Watch the video for “Burial” below.
Trippy Meta Video of the Day: Google’s Acid Trip Generator Analyzes Acid Trip Scene in ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’
Deep Dream, Google’s artificial neural network analyzes and builds on patterns in video or images, and can be programmed to look for specific things. For instance the network can be programmed to look for animals and faces, and if a cloud in a video clip looks like vaguely a bird, the network will exaggerate this detail with each pass. Someone had the bright idea of having Deep Dream analyze an acid trip scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the results are kinda terrifying.
Watch Deep Dream’s nightmarish version of the film below.
“Holding On” is the first in what will be a four-part series, spanning Disclosure’s forthcoming videos, and ultimately making up an entire short film. Directed by Ryan Hope, this video definitely has a cinematic feel, with a gritty futuristic vibe. Watch below!
Ryan Humphrey and James Harvey’s fantastic Bartkira project just gets bigger and better as time goes on. Their labour of love, to have artists all over the world re-create Akira using Simpsons characters, is one of my favourite crowd-sourced projects ever! You can see a map here of all the contributing artists’ locations.
Kaitlin Sullivan organized a group of over 50 artists to create a trailer for the animated version of Bartkira and made it look like something that would have appeared on an old Bartman VHS. The results are amazing. Watch the Bartkira trailer below.
New York Times Crossword Puzzle Editor and Table Tennis enthusiast, Will Shortz, committed himself to playing table-tennis every day for an entire year. He was motivated when he was told that ping pong stimulated all the parts of the brain that crossword puzzles didn’t. This guy has been a huge inspiration to me over the years, I love his Sunday Puzzle show on NPR.
Find out if he reached his goal by watching Supermarché’s short on Shortz’s experience below!
