Tumblr of the Week: Google Street Scene

Tumblr of the Week: Google Street Scene
If you recognize this image as a scene from The Blue Brothers then Google Street Scene just might be your new favourite Tumblr. Tre Baker doctors film stills to look like they’re pulled from Google Street View!

I love the details he includes, the glitches, face blurring, even the shadow of the Google Street View vehicle. I’ve included a few more stills below, see if you recognize the films!

Slitscanner.js by sha hwang
Sha Hwang has created a bookmarklet that you can add to your browser and use it to slitscan any Youtube or Vimeo video! Just drag this link to your bookmark bar: slitscanner. Then open a video in Vimeo (make sure you are using HTML5) and click on the bookmarklet. SO COOOL.

I created the above image using this Lazer Sword video (this is also the example Sha uses on his site). Sha says users can download the code and modify it. He’s publishing slitscans to: shahwang.tumblr.com

Rybczynski painted 16,000 cell mattes and made several hundred thousand exposures on an optical printer to create this short. It took 7 months to complete, and went on to win an Oscar.
