Krump & Ballet 360

A very interesting project with photography and video to put together this amazing work of art. Different styles of dance brought onto one playing field, I really love projects such as these and the amount of technical work that goes into it makes it seem effortless. I do not have the technical ability to pull off something such as this, I would like to develop the ability to get better, but I’m amazed at how they got it done.

“The 360 Project” is an exploration into the crossroads of photography and motion pictures. It is a study of peak dance movements, captured simultaneously by 48 cameras aligned in a circle. There are two components to “The 360 Project” – “Ballet 360” features ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School, “Krump 360” features dancers from Northbuck Krump. The two styles of dance represent polemic perspectives in both technique and origin – one is beauty, the other beast. The resulting images resemble a type of digital statue – a frozen, peak moment, embodying the essence of each dance form in 360 degrees.

Riding Lessons – For Life

There is something about riding that just gets to a lot of people to the core, there is a type of freedom, a of experience that can be expressed except through riding. I have learned a lot from my riding especially at times when I wasn’t so level headed, and as the videos mentioned I will never forget my first crash, I can still picture it in my head. Riding is a risky but it is a manageable risk, and the rewards of riding with a level head is extremely rewarding, watching this video just felt damn good. If you haven’t ridden in your life then you really haven’t experienced freedom.

Escapism

The state of having wandering and imaginative thoughts in order to remove one’s self from reality.

Seeing this makes me anxious to ride my bike right now, this video sums up the feeling that bikers have waking up before dawn and getting on their machines getting ready to go out and enjoy the ride. I keep thinking about taking a trip somewhere in Europe on a bike or somehow getting my bike on the plane with me, how great it would be to disembark off the plane and just get right on your bike and ride off to your destination.

BMW 1M Coupe – In True Form

This is a very short video but it is pure automotive passion, you are left with only the purest form of driving, I watch in awe of the skills of the driver and the capability of this amazing machine. I want one, I won’t lie, I want to drive this car, I want a manual that I can thrash around town and around a track. It seems this is part of the BMW 1M driving videos, thats hope there are some more videos just as awesome as this one to come out soon.

ICON Films – Stunters

I’m not the biggest fan of stunting, but I always have respect for those who perfected those skills. These guys are pulling wheelies, and insane stunts to perfection. ICON has put together a very cool set of videos on some of the best stunters around, I love the videography, I wonder how they mounted some of the cameras to the machines, and the control these guys have of their machines is amazing.

Lego Starcraft: Brick Rush

I think I have had StarCraft on my mind 24/7 for the past week or so and I’m not even getting enough time to play all that I want. I’m seriously not getting enough but this stop motion photography depicting Lego StarCraft is fantastic. Terrans vs. The Protoss, its pretty much just like the game, except for less fire power. Just seeing this video makes me think about taking a week off and turning into a StarCraft Hermit. I love well executed stop motion photography because I know it takes a lot of time and skill to make it flow smoothly and realistically.

Community – The DJ Steve Porter Remix!

I LOVE THIS VIDEO! SENOR CHANG IS AWESOME! I swear this show is just insane! And this video encompasses the awesomness of the show in just 1 minute and 57 seconds. I seriously can’t get enough of this song, and these guys rapping is great and funny when your reading the translation. The show’s characters are fantastic but Troy, Abed, and Senor Chang are just off the charts.
