When easyJet Traveller commissioned street artist, David "Gnasher" Nash, to paint a mural to become the cover of its August issue, the mag asked Dashboard Media to capture a time-lapse video of the event in Shoreditch, London. The project was entirely shot on an iPhone 5 over ten hours on 8 July 2013 and required 6,000 stills which were taken once every six seconds. The original video can be watched at is.gd/streetart
The clip you see here is an interview sequence of the artist talking about the project. It, too, was shot on an iPhone 5.
To complete the loop, Dashboard Media then concocted an interactive-print version of the mag cover which shows the paint being sucked off the wall in reverse, if viewed with the Blippar augmented reality app. You can see this clip at vimeo.com/71349747 or simply by using the Blippar trigger-image shown at bit.ly/18PzxsN.
Tweet a pic of yourself standing in front of this mural during Aug 2013 (see goo.gl/maps/kKsrQ for location) and you could even win two free flights, courtesy of easyJet. Details about this competition are at is.gd/coverstars
Big thank you to Lee at Global Street Art, the Blippar and eJ Traveller teams, Audio Network for the hot soundtrack, Pete Booth, who edited every frame of video, and Justin at Osnap for his sage tips. Respect is due to you all.
