Convert Black/White footage to thermographic-like video

I am doing some really cool research lately concerning video conversion and one of the issues I ran into concerns infrared imaging. In short: all the ‘cool’ thermographic (colour is dependent on radiated temperature) images are in color, and the… Continue Reading →

Dissection of the Phantom Menace

Via hackerfactor I came across this gem: a 7-episode dissection of just how bad the 1999 Star Wars: Phantom Menace was. The guy who made it has a very specific style, insightful, funny but sometimes quite disturbing. Try episode one:

Don’t send me a video, send me a link

I know, there are so many ‘funny’ videos you just have to share with your friends. So you send them an email. But for god’s sake, not with a 5MB movie in attachment! For all you know, he/she might not… Continue Reading →

Babel: Japanese “September” remix

“Babel” links up three stories on three continents in a clever way. Mexican director Iñárritu has probably made one of the best movies of 2006. I’m not gonna tell anything more about the plot (but girls: it features Brad Pitt… Continue Reading →

Pixar, Dreamworks … : synchronized imagination

One wonders if, next to the departments Marketing and Human Resources, there are a number of offices marked “Industrial espionage” in the studios of Pixar, Dreamworks and other animation houses. It could be a coincidence, but they seem to do… Continue Reading →
