Twenty-seven animators worked on the new Wes Anderson flick Isle of Dogs. This video demonstrates some of the techniques and challenges they faced in production.
According to one of the creators, “one of the hardest things to do in animation is a walk.” So they strapped cameras to the backs of dogs to understand a canine’s movements and other points of view.
VSCO releases Isle of Dogs Presets
Photo editing app VSCO released some filters to help promote the movie. I took some photos of my dog and applied the presets. DOG 2 gives the images a yellow tint while DOG 3 adds a pink hue to images.
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”
Piper, the border collie, protects airplanes taking off at Cherry Capital Airport in Michigan from bird strikes — recall the geese that got sucked into a US Airways flight on the Miracle at the Hudson. Says his handler Brian Edwards: “When he goes out to deploy and chase something, it really looks like a missile launch.”
If you’re looking for the best photo-backup service, look no further than Google Photos. Not only does it free up phone space, it creates gifs, adds filters, and stitches images together for you using the magic of artificial intelligence. In the age of image surfeit, Google Photos has been a blessing in disguise, helping people decide what to post or share with friends and family. But today’s news is by far my favorite.
Using its human face identification technology, Google can now detect individual cats and dogs instead of bunching all the animals together. It can even narrow results down to a specific breed. You can also search by or emojis.
It’s about time pets got some recognition. See what I did there 😉
