KISS FM came up with this brilliant idea for the radiostation. Rocking cassette tapes that come to life.
This is a heart breaking video for a dish cleaner product. The music, the tone, the ending…… A great piece of advertising. It’s produced by Grey Argentina and is directed by Andres Salmoyragui.

Where Steve Jobs leads, Microsoft follows -- how's that for shaking up the hornet's nest? It's said in jest, of course, but we've just come across a post from the General Manager for Internet Explorer, Dean Hachamovitch, and the perspective expressed by him on the subject of web content delivery broadly agrees with the essay penned by Jobs yesterday on the very same subject. Echoing the Apple CEO's words, Hachamovitch describes HTML5 as "the future of the web," praising it for allowing content to be played without the need for plug-ins and with native hardware acceleration (in both Windows 7 and Mac OS X). He goes on to identify H.264 as the best video codec for the job -- so much so that it'll be the only one supported in IE9's HTML5 implementation -- before turning to the dreaded subject of Flash.
This is where it gets good, because he literally repeats one of Jobs' six pillars of Flash hate: "reliability, security, and performance" are not as good as Microsoft would like them. Where Hachamovitch diverges from Apple's messiah, however, is in describing Flash as an important part of "a good consumer experience on today's web," primarily because it's difficult for the typical consumer to access Flash-free content. Still, it's got to be depressing for Adobe's crew when the best thing either of the two biggest players in tech has to say about your wares is that they're ubiquitous. Wonder how Shantanu Narayen is gonna try and spin this one.
Funny video this one, kind of reminds you of Katamari. And all you see is a big ball rolling around. Nevertheless, it's beautiful to look at.
"I had reservations about making art a business," the famous art collector Mary Boone once said. "But I got over it."
Such is the tension within all artistic industries -- film, painting, theater or music, the idea of selling-out dogs them all. Are the high prices that paintings go for at Sotheby's or films sell for at Sundance indicative of their success, or their impurity? And how do you distinguish the "true" art from the art that's just hyped? Do the two have to be mutually exclusive? To read more, click here.
Here's a step by step look at the process of making a realistic Piranha Plant sculpture from Super Mario Brothers. Excellent result!
Focus stacking is primarily used in macro photography (meaning macro lenses are the ideal for candidate for this technique this, but by no means necessary—as many have pointed out, landscape photographers use it as well). You'll take multiple shots of a subject, only shifting your point of focus. These shots are combined in post production. Here's a great tutorial by Brian Valentine, the photographer behind that lead shot. If you prefer video, then check out this clip:
The video assures viewers that whatever sticky notes can be reused are, but let’s just hope the notes being used are at least 50 percent post-consumer recycled. Artists should suffer for their art, but trees shouldn’t.
Remember the Nike Music Shoe ad from 2 weeks ago? Well, here’s the making of video. Seems like it was a very fun project.
