1. But, green screen is a great tool, right? Not for one filmmaker.

    Watch the story of why and how @MichaelPlescia tried to reinvent filmmaking, visual effects and co-found a company in order to make his feature film even a possibility.

    See how the story vision for The Mop Liberator lead to the creation of a technology that is allowing the filmmakers to photograph an imagined cyberpunk world in-camera without any post-production using ARwall, a visual effects compositing technology that combines new mixed-reality screens along with the oldest (and maybe best) trick in the filmmaking book.

    This piece delves into the inception, development process, and shows the production test footage of the first ever real-time, in-camera, real-light, real-lens, perspective-adapting, mixed-reality, rear-screen, compositing technique.

    Singer Zhang Liangying, portrays the role of an office lady and was presented at the beginning of the story. This unlucky lady was blamed by her boss over the phone when she visited the Art Institute of Chicago. Suddenly, she enters a world of famous paintings, and was on her way to a fantastic adventure.

    In this MV, we try to connect 12 world-known paintings through interesting and smooth transitions. The original values of those paintings are re-defined. For example, Van Gogh’s ear is bitten by Mike Tyson; when the girl in the Gleaners looks up, she becomes the Girl with A Pearl Earring; the two men in black at the end of the bridge in the Scream by Edvard Munch are actually MIB, and they scream because they see the big monster in the painting of Dali; and the man in suit sitting with his back to us in the lonely café of the last painting Nighthawks, is Dali, and so on.

    The 3D effect of those famous paintings is the largest challenge in this MV. We invited excellent artists to contribute their ideas and skills on all the scenes, costumes, actors and the singer. The innovative shooting methods are extremely experimental, which seems crazy!

    Although the concept of the script is radical, weird and wild, the revival of paintings, the integration of the new and the old, the copy of painting lines and the texture presentation in the production process are all challenges. The traditional arts and aesthetics are supported by creativity, and innovative story line and the overwhelming CG are integrated. The MV was made possible through the efforts of experts in various fields. We hope you enjoy it!

    The list of paintings and artists used in the MV:
    1. Edward Hopper – Nighthawks
    2. Vincent Willem van Gogh
    3. Jean-François Millet- Des glaneuses
    4. Johannes Vermeer-Het meisje met de parel
    5.Andrew Nowell Wyeth-Christina's World
    6.Georges-Pierre Seurat-Un dimanche après-midi à l'Île de la Grande Jatte
    7. Edvard Munch-Skrik
    8.alvador Dali-A Tentação de Santo Antônio
    9. The marches of summer
    10. Maurits Cornelis Escher-Ascending and descending
    11. Maurits Cornelis Escher- Gallery
    12. Magritte Rene-The Son of Man
    13. Salvador Dali

    * As for the 13th painting, the explosion at 1:35 of the MV adopts the style of Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama.

    故事的開始,從歌手張靚穎所扮演的OL上班族拉開序幕,電話那頭傳來老闆的責駡,正在逛芝加哥美術館( Art Institute of Chicago)的倒楣OL,莫名闖入名畫的世界,展開一連串不可思議的奇幻冒險。

    此MV我們嘗試以有趣流暢的轉場,貫穿12幅世界名畫,並且顛覆改寫原先名畫的世界觀,做出了全新的定義,例如:梵谷的耳朵原來是被拳王泰森給咬下來的、拾穗中間彎著腰的女性抬起頭來,原來是戴珍珠耳環的少女、孟克吶喊那座橋後方的兩個黑衣人原來是MIB,而吶喊的原因是看到了達利畫中的巨大神獸所以尖叫吶喊、而最後名畫Nighthawks寂寞咖啡廳裡背對西裝男,竟然是達利的背影……等等。

    為了讓平面經典以3D重現,將名畫"立體化"是此次MV最大的挑戰,我們找來了優秀的藝術畫家們,將所有看的到的搭景、服裝、甚至演員與歌手全都畫上了"筆觸","極不正常"的MV拍攝手法,極度實驗性的拍攝現場,只有瘋狂!

    雖然劇本創意不按牌理出牌,也可以說非常"前衛另類&狂野",但回歸現實製作層面,如何呈現畫作本質並賦予新的生命,新舊衝突的融合、筆觸的臨摹、質感呈現更是實際我們要克服的一大挑戰。以正統藝術與美感為基底,創意為輔,融入超展開的惡搞劇情,加上目不暇給的CG動畫特效,這是各方專業跨界努力後的成果,請開心享用!

    此外,值得一提的是歌手張靚穎的勇氣與野心,沒有底線、不給創作者任何框架的創作空間,就算是被顏料畫得面目全非也盡力配合,求得只是一個創意的完整,這是身為一個主流歌手非常難能可貴的,你去看看那些主流的CD封面或MV就可充分瞭解這其中的突破了,華語歌手總是被要求臉要清楚、要大、要美、舞蹈要好記.....創意總是被放在很後面,而這MV最令人振奮的是,我們終於可以把創意放在第一位了!!!

  3. A long time ago in a galaxy far far away... we might have seen a version of Star Wars that featured a Han Solo with green skin and gills, Stormtroopers with lightsabers, and a female heroine named Luka Starkiller.

    Many of these anomalies can be seen in concept artist, Ralph McQuarrie's early illustrations of the Star Wars universe. While looking back at these early paintings we can't help but wonder what Star Wars would have been like had it remained loyal to the concept art and early drafts of the script.

    The DAVE School graduating class of August and October 2017 have answered that question by bringing Ralph McQuarrie's paintings to life in a concept trailer for what might have been... The Star Wars.

  4. It’s 2017 and computer graphics have conquered the Uncanny Valley, that strange place where things are almost real... but not quite. After decades of innovation, we’re at the point where we can conjure just about anything with software. The battle for photoreal CGI has been won, so the question is... what happens now?

  5. This video essay is an analysis of Wong Kar Wai's use of colors. WKW is without doubt, one of cinema's great colorists. His films are renowned for their distinctive style, in which colors segue and blur into each other.

    Color in films are a product of collaboration between the director and his cinematographer, in this case: Christopher Doyle. Color is one of the most powerful factors in someone's psychological build.

    This video was made for the purpose of paying tribute to one of the greatest filmmakers.
