1. HAPPY life


    from mojebory Added 35.7K 930 276

    A short film about life... about human being. Location: Europe ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I am very excited If I have chance to capture 'ordinary' people in their natural environment They just inspire me and moves... I see a harmony in ordinary activities - joy and sadness at the same time. Everything around us is magical. When I take pictures or shots I look at the world through the eyes of a child ... everything seems so interesting and unusual ! I'm 'hungry', I want to grab everything ! In this way I've gathered shots and took some pictures over 5 years. Now I have quite huge library of footage of people, places, nature, animals etc. The film is directed only at the stage of editing ! No man in this movie wasn't forced to do anything. There is no acting, no dubels, no studio lights, only one camera (5D MKII), no sponsors :D, unrestricted creativity, completely without crew - just one person - me ;) ------------------------------------------------------------------ Beautiful Music: Max Richter & Dinah Washington - This Bitter Earth http://www.maxrichtermusic.com/en/index.php voice over: Dalai Lama Sound FX: mojebory Directed: mojebory Edited: mojebory Shot: mojebory Color grading: mojebory facebook.com/borytucholskie ten sam Film z polskimi napisami [captions] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqOge4J9Aj0 Used Canon 5D MK II, couple of lenses and some other stuff

        • The Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck - by @JasonSilva


          from Jason Silva Added 455K 2,286 95

          Follow me on twitter! @JasonSilva - https://twitter.com/JasonSilva This video was created by Jason Silva and shot and edited with my friends at Bravo Media, and is non-commercial and for educational and inspirational purposes only. Full credits and clip attributions can be found below. This video was inspired by three big ideas: 1) The ideas of psychologist Nicholas Humphrey who has written of "THE BIOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE OF BEING AWESTRUCK". Basically, our ability to awe was biologically selected for by evolution because it imbues our lives with sense of cosmic significance that has resulted in a species that works harder not just to survive but to flourish and thrive... "Humphrey refers to consciousness as a magic show that you stage for yourself inside your head, which lights up the world and makes you feel special and transcendent... this magical theater provides a reason to live, a love of occupying the present moment, and a desire to sustain it into the future, that over time has proved stronger than anything else, and accounts for humanity’s swift and triumphant success-- Humphrey says “being enchanted by the magic of experience, rather than being just an aid to survival, provides an essential incentive to survive.” "We relish just being here. We feel “the yen to confirm and renew, in small ways or large, our own occupancy of the present moment, to go deeper, to extend it, to revel in being there, and when we have the skill, to celebrate it in words..” Our desire to understand brings exquisite pleasure... and feeds our exploratory voyage, our scientific inquiry, our technological development, and even our poetic self-regard.. More: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703858404576214771893335998.html 2) The Stanford study that found that AWE is clinically good for you, expanding perception of time, increasing compassion and empathy and promoting well being: More: http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2012/07/study-awe-inspiring-experiences-change-our-perception-of-time/260138/ 3) Ross Andersen's rapturous meditation on the ontological awakening of our psyches provided by the Hubble Space Telescope: "At first glancing the Deep FIELD “one might mistake it for gemstones scattered across black velvet, but a closer look reveals that each smudge of light, 2,600 in all, is a galaxy dense with billions of star-fired worlds, pinwheeling in deep time. … To that point, astronomy had imaged objects only four billion light years away, and poorly at that. Here a telescope reached 11 and a half billion light years into space and delivered an image legible to the layman: an unprecedented expansion of human vision."

                Capture and Narrative development by Steer Films / Steer Digital - steerdigitalmedia.com Sharks have fascinated both Joe Romeiro and Bill Fisher since childhood. They each learned to dive as a tool to experience the power and mystery of sharks first hand. After meeting on a shark diving expedition, they teamed up to form 333 Productions and produce films that help aid in the conservation of sharks and the marine environment. They want to use their experiences to help show others that many species of sharks are threatened, and some even face extinction. Joe and Bill portray sharks the way they see them, as beautiful and awe inspiring creatures that are an important and critical element of our oceans eco-system.

                  "A visual metaphor of the positive and negative aspects of humanity, and its path on Earth." Official website: http://llapse.net Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/llapse Contact: contact@llapse.net Story: “This is the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper.” - TS ELLIOTT Transience reflects the condition of every being in the universe seen through a sensitive, intellectual or even felt experience. Even further, what humanity can’t describe, touch or identify is also linked to the same vanishing flow. As big can be atoms or minuscule the stars, it’s all about sequences, pace, sudden apparitions or slow decay. Humanity seems to have a unique potential in this constant struggle between life and entropy. Whether our aptitudes help us prevail and evolve or instead accelerates our doom we have yet to decide. That hesitation would come to an end with self-annihilation, but an end may just be a transition, a transformation. Process: Structured in a pseudo-timeline, the film is visually bringing a balance of positive and negative aspects in humanity. Slow or fast paced scenes, soft nature or hard concrete environments are shown as global human experience. Initially a personal practice to bring mental concepts to life, this movie is achieved by two individuals, Julien Vanhoenacker as writer/director/VFX artist and Nicolas Vitte as music composer. A great deal of computing power is needed to generate CGI images and the availability of the renderfarm of The Post Bangkok is a chance that allows this film to exist. Creating these visual metaphors is a lengthy process spanning over many months. This allows ideas to be refined and become stronger in time, but also requires organisation, endurance and perfectionism, as well as the ability to stay focused on the initial intention.
