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.
The combination of perception and imagination can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. But we strive to go deeper into the details, beyond what is manifest. Said René Magritte:
“Everything we see hides another thing; we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.”
The more we look, the more realize what we can’t see. Such ignorance drives our curiosity to identify new blind spots.
What’s unknown remains a haunting beauty.
In its never-ending endeavor to augment mobile photography and enhance digital art, VSCO added Borders to its app today.
The new feature allows VSCO X users to frame their images with 17 different color options. You can see some of my first efforts above.
Filters aren’t dead. Nor are the wall decorations. Kudos to VSCO for giving its users the tools to create and keep experimenting. Never mundane, always interesting.
What’s interesting about distortion is that ordinary photos or videos can instantly become more interesting. VSCO has some excellent filters for converting your photos into different looks.
While my favorite is still the Nike Sportswear Mars-like filter, I love the pink, blue, and orange effects as part of the VSCO D-series.
