LED Greenhouses

LED Greenhouses

With something that looks right out of BladeRunner – German photographer Tom Hegen recently traveled to the Netherlands to document the country’s LED greenhouses. The greenhouses were developed as a response to the small country’s growing need for food both within its own borders and to the international market. Dutch exporters are second only to the U.S. industry for global food exports as measured by value. Although the greenhouses offer incredible efficiency in their design, cultivating food year-round through high temperatures and humidity levels, their round-the-clock use also gives off a great deal of light pollution.

Landing in 4k

Ever wanted to see what it’s like the cockpit of a big plane when landing at night? High Pressure Aviation has a ton of really amazing cockpit videos.

How about an A380 in 4k?

Or how about one of the newer Boeing 777

How easy is it to film anywhere with any background?

I love visiting the real-life places where my favorite films were shot. But very soon, that will be a thing of the past.

There probably isn’t a tv show on at the moment that doesn’t use at least a half-dozen of these tricks today. Check out how easy it is to create any scene with cheap, off the shelf computers and cameras

100 year old lens

 Photographer Mathieu Stern decided to see what kind of video he could capture with a lens he snatched from a 100-year-old Eastman Kodak camera. The footage is quite good, with a dreamy and warm quality to it.

Videographer Guy Jones edits century-old film – the ones that usually run too fast and jerky. Jones slowed down the film’s original speed and added ambient sound to match the activity seen on the city’s streets. This particular film print was created by the Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern during a trip to America, and remains in mint condition.

You can see more of Jones’s edits of films from the late 19th-century to mid-1900s on his Youtube channel. (via Twisted Sifter)

Context aware fill for video

Context aware fill for video

Context aware fill is a fascinating and magical technology. It was previously limited to still images, but Adobe ups the bar by making it available for video clips.

What a wild world we live in.

Slowing down the past

Slowing down the past

Hot on the heals of Peter Jackson’s They Shall Not Grow Old, restoration of old films using lots of fascinating new techniques is hitting mainstream. One of those technologies being to slow down the old hand-crank ~10fps movies that play too fast when put on modern ~30fps transfers.

Videographer Guy Jones slows down film from the late 1800s to early 1900s to more accurately match the speed at which modern footage is recorded and played. In addition to editing the pace of the century-old film, Jones also adds in sound effects to make the scenes more relatable.

Check out his Youtube channel for more of these amazing edits.
