Video Monday: Som Sabadell Flashmob

August 27, 2012

Video Mondays

Are you sick of these? Man, they do not get old for me.

On the 130th anniversary of the founding of Banco Sabadell we wanted to pay homage to our city by means of the campaign “Som Sabadell” (We are Sabadell) . This is the flashmob that we arranged as a final culmination with the participation of 100 people from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l’Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs.

Video Monday: Rear Window Loop

April 2, 2012

Video Mondays

By gathering the appropriate scenes and then placing them in one wide shot, filmmaker Jeff Desom created a video installation of the neighborhood events as they unroll in Hitchcock’s film “Rear Window.” I love this.

I dissected all of Hitchcock’s Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie’s plot.

The whole thing takes twenty minutes to screen, but below is a time-lapse. Wouldn’t you love to see it in person?

Pretty sweet, right?

So this is pretty much one of the best videos ever. I’m gonna watch this next time I take a scary leap.– right? (I actually have some scary ones coming up.)  And how awesome is that kid?!

Whitney Houston

Remember when Whitney Houston made your fourth grade heart swell? You and your best friend fought over who sang her ballads best. For years you wanted to be in a band that pretty much exclusively  sang Whitney Houston and Gloria Estefan covers.

Rest in Peace Whitney.

How do you deal with distractions during your working hours?

Video Monday: A 5 year old analyzes logos

February 6, 2012

Video Mondays

I found this video through LinkedIn and thought it was interesting (and maybe kind of terrifying?)

Cincinnati, Ohio-based identity designer Adam Ladd asked his 5-year-old daughter her impressions on some popular logos…

More than her impressions of each logo, which are often adorable, (eg “Parade Elephant”,)  I found it fascinating which logos she recognized.  You’ve got your basics like ‘Disney’, and ‘McDonald’s’, but a couple I found surprising. ‘GE’ for one. Yes, her grandfather works there, and they own basically everything, but you don’t actually see their logo that much. The other one was ‘Xbox’, which she recognized, not because she’s playing video games all day, but because it “controls” the tv at her friend’s house. Maybe it’s more a sign of my naivete about video games and tv watching in general, but I was surprised a five-year old would notice something so small.

Did any of these take you by surprise?

Anyways, hats off to the marketers of the world. Well done, Sirs and Madams. Excuse me while I unplug my family and run off to the hills to become hermits.

I knew I loved Kristen Bell

January 31, 2012

G and I discovered Veronica Mars late in the game–two years ago, actually. But once we did, we devoured that series and both fell head over heels in love with Kristen Bell.  But then she betrayed us with this. And it was over. (Yes, it was way worse than all those other forgive-ably bad movies. And Party Down did not make up for it.)

I hear she’s in a new tv show, but I just can’t be burned again. (Well, that and we don’t have cable.)

But then I saw this today:

(A bit much? Maybe. But after seeing this I can relate.) You gotta love a girl who would show an up-the-nose video of herself on a syndicated talk show. Kristen, it’s on.

Video Monday: Maurice Sendak

Have you seen this interview from the Colbert Report?  (Part one here.)

[edit: oops that clip got taken down. You can watch it here on hulu.]

Maurice Sendak is hilarious, as expected.  I love his whole sassy, frank attitude. He’s awesome.

And sort of random, but go with it: Did you ever read “How Does It Feel To Be Old?” by Norma Farber, and illustrated by my favorite, Trina Schart Hyman? Written in prose, an old woman tells her granddaughter the benefits and tribulations of being old.  I read it a lot growing up and one of my favorite parts was about not caring what other people thought of her. How she was old and so could pretty much say anything, about whatever, to anybody. (I’m pretty sure the illustration is of her yelling at a grocery store clerk about the price of bananas. If I can find it I’ll post here. It’s amazing.) Anyways, those interviews reminded me so much of that book.

I just ordered it, but maybe I’ll ask my mom if she still has it. I’m so curious to read it as an adult.
