Modern Landscape at 210fps

From Graeme Taylor:

In all my slow-motion work so far, I’ve used a static camera to capture a high-speed event. But, I wondered, what would happen if the camera was the fast-moving object? For instance, if you use a 210fps camera at 35mph, on playback at 30fps it’ll seem to the observer that they’re moving at walking pace- but everything observed will be operating at 1/7th speed.

Ataque de Pánico! (Panic Attack!) 2009

Amazing YouTube video from a Uruguayan director. As if the video wasn’t impressive enough, it was evidently made for less than $300.

Navigation Inspiration

While doing motion research for a project I’m working on, I found some navigation inspiration in Kurtz Media’s reel. Now that may sound silly – since I, and almost every other interactive designer, turn to motion reels for inspiration – but this time was different. I usually look at the art direction/aesthetics in motion reels to inform my designs/aspects of my layout, but today I was specifically looking at transitions/spatial layouts of text elements and their overall motion to inform experimental navigation concepts I’m developing. Its interesting that, when viewed through such a narrow lens, these motion reels that I’ve seen dozens of times before all of a sudden looked different. I guess it’s all about perspective.
