We have seen Kinect’s untapped potential. This music video for Catalina is done with Kinect, Kinect Library for Processing, Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects. It looks like that the device is now becoming an additional tool for special effects besides CGI.
The detailed production walkthrough can be found here – even the original source files are available if one would want to venture into this.
Some photographs from Black Park Lake that I took one winter’s morning. The park offers a different kind of experience in winter when it is easier to get lost into the woods.
Black Park is 530 acres of woodland and heathland just outside London with a centre-piece lake in Wexham, Buckinghamshire, England. The site is next to Pinewood Film Studios and has been used for many films and TV productions such as James Bond, Harry Potter and Sleepy Hollow to name a few.
This abstract short is a creation of Hamburg/Germany based motion graphics designer Silke Sieler.
A short abstract movie dealing with nature and maritime creatures, metamorphosis and transformation – it connects art and science. Strong emphasis on sound, related to the idea of visual music. The Style is soft but clean, focussing on black & white.
I studied media design at University of Applied Sciences in Mainz and this is my diploma thesis – it´s not the official musicvideo.
Undoubtedly, some of the best short-films I’ve seen lately came from Richard Mosse. Born and grew up in Ireland he is now based in New York. Mosse studied at Yale, Goldsmiths and the London Consortium. He is driven by an ambivalence toward photography and a desire to revisit and even rewrite traumatic cultural histories.
Shot in the ruins of Gaza and the West Bank, August 2009. Cast Lead, the IDF codename for the Gaza war of 2009, is a term derived from Haim Nachman Bialik’s Hannukah poem about a game played with a spinning dreidel made of lead.

In an article written several years ago, Robert Fisk referred to the wreck of a Nazi-allied Vichy French U-Boat which lies beneath the waves off the coast of Beirut. The submarine was called Le Souffleur, and was sunk in 1941 by British destroyers which had followed it up the coast from Palestine.
Souffleur was made in sixteen hours as part of the 98 weeks workshop, Beirut, September 2008.
Theatre of War
Shot in Saddam Hussein’s hilltop palace in the mountains overlooking the River Tigris, Theatre of War is a slow, virtually static video piece redolent of classical history painting. Audio was recorded at the official US military hand-over ceremony at the nearby city of Saniya. A mullah’s prayer for unity among Arabs is spoken, after which the pan-Arab national anthem, Mawtini (My Homeland) is played, emphasizing Arab national solidarity and a pan-Arab territory. Made in Iraq in March 2009.
