      from Daniela Sherer Added 3,927 164 12

      A film about the world being created beneath London. I've made the animation for this live-action+animation short film. It's abstract and trippy. Pipe Dreams is a short film commissioned by the Barbican to mark the passing of Crossrail's Tunnel Boring Machines beneath the Barbican Estate. Granted unique access as the final stretch of the Crossrail project’s tunnelling takes place between Liverpool Street and Farringdon, the film captures the magic of the tunnels in their present state, revealing the underground landscape and contemplating what is being created underneath our feet. Animation by Daniela Sherer (danielasherer.com/), filming by Bevis Bowden (bevisbowdenfilms.co.uk/), and music by LoneLady (lonelady.co.uk). -- Full credits: Locomotive Operator - Billy Kerswell Facilities Engineer - Juan Pablo Perez de la Fuentes Locomotive Foreman - Felix Remacha Tunnel Superintendent - Pat Loughnane Field Engineer - John Collins Safety Manager - Barry Major Communications Officer - Dan Garrity Animation - Daniela Sherer Filming - Bevis Bowden Music - LoneLady Mastering - Adaq Khan Editing - Siddharth Khajuria & Tom Rosenthal Direction and Production - Siddharth Khajuria

      • Skydweller


        from Barbican Centre Added 33.7K 276 9

        Skydweller is a portrait of London as seen from the top of Cromwell Tower, one of the three residential towers in the Barbican Estate. This film combines over 5,000 photographs taken from the top of the tower with specially composed music by Tom Rosenthal and poetry by Paul Haworth. Haworth, an artist working in rap, fiction, poetry and performance said "whenever one looks at great cities from high up, it is a beautiful and threatening proposition. Watching this footage, I was fascinated by how wild London appeared. It feels like an entirely economic landscape and yet there is still so much romance in it. Up in the sky, you are always imagining what is going on down there." With many thanks to the Likierman-Hale family for allowing us to film from their apartment in Cromwell Tower. -------------------------- Words: skydweller this one’s for us about us there are no official observations but what about this in love first come those familiar shapes cranes every day different or the same come combat canopy crushed in love you are open coming to life come banksmen required what do you do what do you make the do make do make reasons out of no make-up you make no mistake I make it up as I go I make it up as I go I make it up master dominator cold, light and dark you are watching Nighthawks touch touch take off it’s like everywhere you go you come back come back, Philadelphia come back, Tallinn Doha Belfast Singapore Prague Beirut Tehran Hong Kong Dallas Dubai Vancouver come back come back and kiss kiss Lewisham or in East Ham where is that where’d you go sunrise lovers inside duvet covers for a couple days a week tops so the sheds the roomshares so what what’s left come canvas canopy corrupt in love you are open unfinished or out of focus arts and crafts a work in progress to remember your name my solitude waitress my acting emperor billed as infrastructure to open doors tender cables your face lights up and I’m faithful to every coconut holder to draw a moustache on every statue, bust incapable of grief and if there’s surface damage there’s a surface we’re skimming to money troubles those troubles are mine to troubles in love painted in lustre designed as an end elevation to a finishing touch what holds you up Paul Haworth (Lancaster, 1982) is an artist, working in rap, fiction, poetry and performance.

          • Barbican - BMPCC ProRes vs Raw


            from Tim Shoebridge Added

            The Barbican. You either love it or you hate it. Personally, I hate it. A soulless labyrinth of reinforced concrete! Ok, so here's a third and final upload from my Barbican shoot. This video is a mash-up of the ProRes and Raw versions to help compare between the image quality of those two formats. It's obvious which clips are which when you view them so I did not bother to label them. I could have spent a lot more time tweaking the colours and exposure to bring more out of the ProRes footage but, to have done so, would for me have meant spending more time grading the ProRes footage than the Raw, which sounds backward. My personal take on the results is that Raw provides more detail and micro contrast, richer and more natural colours, deeper shadows and vastly more recoverable highlights, provides huge control over exposure and colour balance, and eliminates the compression pixelation effect that you can see going on in the shadows in quite a few of the ProRes clips. To my eye, those compression artifacts are far more common and an ugly distraction than moire is. I really don't see the reason to shoot in ProRes when BMPCC Raw has so many more advantages and looks so much better...

                      The installation has been shown in the Group Show 'Interfaces', at the Barbican centre, the first annual showcase from the artists part of the residency 'Fish Island Labs' located in Hackney Wick, London; Put together by the Trampery and the Barbican. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~3D Fractals excerpt : https://vimeo.com/139786063 Projection Mapping excerpt : https://vimeo.com/139842623 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Nature Abstraction is an immersive sensory experience that explores the arcane forms of fractals, mathematical visual representation of natural and biological forms. The project gives an insight of their aspects through virtual reality, where they appear as three planets: Birth, Communion and Aether; Each accompained with scores designed to facilitate meditative state and relaxation; The fractals have also been processed through Google’s Deepdream, transforming the fractal landscapes into morphing psychedelic patterns that our eye will recognize as very familiar shapes although the way the images are created only aims to create a variety of random patterns on the canvas. The audience is guided to explore these planets and dive into their vast complexities as well as observing the contrast between the entirely digital created world inside the VR against the fully analogue created film projected onto the faces of the cube which have been filmed in real life, recreating using analogue visual effects and various chemical elements.
