Creativity

March 1st, 2013

Creativity is the impetus behind any given act of creation: inventions, compositions, etc. It is a fundamental human compulsion and largely related to notions of what separates human from machine intelligence. – Wikipedia

Thought I would share this video.  I think the compelling part about it is that I really can’t classify it – is it commercial, part narrative, fine art.    I really think it stands out not only for the cool timelapse / stop motion effects, but that it does have a story.  And, that’s what I find so grueling with a lot of the work I see on YouTube and the internet -there is no story.  In fact that goes for TV.  Perhaps is because the filmmaker is from Europe, where Europeans have an easier time creating great stories first and then applying great filmmaking second.   Credit to Filip Piskorzynski @ polaroidface.com.  Even his website is different -kinda dark and mysterious to creepy – reminds me of the band Tool.

Anyone have any idea how he did this affect?  I’m thinking he shot video and removed all frames that had her touching the ground.  I don’t think time lapse would work as the frame rate would not be fast enough.  This would seem to be a pretty labor intensive process!  My favorite part is where the clothes are flying onto her body while she is in the sand dunes.  If any one has a breakdown on how this was done I’d love to hear your thoughts!
