Glitzer und Tinte in makro

Ich wusste gar nicht, dass die DJI Pocket auch makro kann, aber wie wir hier in „Origin“ von Vadim Sherbakov sehen, kann sie das mit der entsprechenden Linse verdammt ordentlich. Desto höher die Auflösung, desto schöner wird’s.

The idea of this experimental macro video was born from lack of traveling due to certain events in 2020 and desire to showcase the capability of the awesome Pocket 2 camera as not only a great blogging device, a good b-roll camera, or super gimbal for travel, architecture, etc short films, but also an amazingly capable machine for creative experiment right at your home.

We use different inks, alcohol, soaps, and other different mixture of household chemicals for creating liquid art of flow and movements.

It was a challenging but really fun project as we have never shot macro with inks before nor have we done it with Pocket 2 (I believe this type of video with ink is the first to be shot on this device). It took us 3 weeks of pure experiments, try and error, to get the right effect with inks and chemicals.
And 1.5 weeks of shooting after that, using DJI Pocket 2 camera with and without a macro lens to gather more than 7 hours of footage (690 GB of clips).
The post-production alone took 1.5 weeks for the entire Origin short film.
An interesting fact is that only about 1.6% of all shot clips went into the film.

Augenzucker: Trinitiy

Der Filmemacher Thomas Blanchard mit Makroaufnahmen von alkoholischen Tinten, Farbpigmenten, Wunderkerzen und ganz ohne CGI.

Using alcohol inks, pigments, sparklers and a laboratory agitator, I wanted to imagine a nuclear explosion from an artistic point of view.
Strongly inspired by the special effects of the Oppenheimer film, Trinity is a code name. It represents the first nuclear test by the United States armed forces on July 16, 1945, as part of the Manhattan Project.

We filmed 90% of the sequences in my kitchen. Just fire was filmed in the studio with a Highspeed camera.

Ein Makrokosmos aus Glitzer und Tinte: Creation

Vadim Sherbakov schafft ein mal mehr ganz feinen Augenzucker aus Glitzer und Farben und zeigt uns diesen in makro.

Exploration of a macro cosmos is a theme for this short film. The ink and glitter make the compositions like the outer space and I love to dive into that. I started that journey in my previous film called Velocity (Velocity 4K HDR) and continue the journey in this one. I implemented new techniques and new materials including the magnets and different liquids and inks.

A total of 12 hours of footage was captured for this film and only less than 1% of best shoots were used in edit.

Fluid Art Machine: Emitter

Roman De Giuli hat mit Emitter eine „Fluid Art Machine“ entwickelt, die mit einem halbautomatischen Farbtropfensystem bunte Pigmente ins Wasser pumpt und dann miteinander vermischt. Das Ergebnis wirkt optisch digital ist aber organischer Natur und sieht verdammt gut aus. Augenzucker de Luxe, aufgenommen in 8K HDR mit 60 fps.

EMITTER is an experimental fluid art film which was created with a semi-automatic paint drop system. Since the beginning of my career, I exlcusively focused on chemical reactions and fluid motion on the macro and micro scale. But over time, I developed several visual methods on bigger canvases to create alive paintings which unfold over a longer period of time. To achive this, I apply a thick base layer of paint and then start to add other colors with droppers or by pouring. As the amount of paint is higher than what the canvas is able to absorb, the paint drops down from all edges of the canvas and onto my desk below. What I noticed for years is, that the constant dropping leads to fascinating and complex colors layers one cannot create by hand. I started to capture what was happening out of frame instead of focusing on the color flow on canvas and collected footage over time.

Augenzucker: aBiogenesis

Wunderschön liquide Animation von Markos Kay, den ich hier neulich erst mit anderen trippy Arbeiten hatte.

Abiogenesis is the study of how life originated on Earth. It is a complex and mysterious subject, and scientists have proposed many different theories to try to understand how life first emerged.

Presented here is a conceptual reimagining of the „lipid world“ theory which postulates that life originated from lipids forming membranes which would then envelop matter and nutrients to form protocells. Biological cells as we now know them can be thought of us membranes within membranes.

Eye Candy: Glitzer und Tinte in makro

Sehr, sehr hübsche Makrovisualitäten von Vadim Sherbakov, der dafür mit jeder Menge Glitzer und Farben spielt, was in der Summe an astronomische Ereignisse erinnert.

Velocity is my third experimental short macro film. “A colourful journey though uncharted cosmos” was the slogan and driving force behind this new short film.
Idea of creating this film came from observed similarity between glittery ink and cosmos. During the last two films I couldn’t shake the feeling that sparkling glitter with dark ink backgrounds on one hand and colourful pigments on the other reminded me of a distant galaxies, galactic clouds, nebulas and other cosmic bodies.

Augenzucker: Maxim Zhestkov – Artificial Organisms

Neue Arbeit von Maxim Zhestkov, der dafür künstliche Organismen wabern, schimmern und pulsieren lässt.

We are a product of biological evolution that started its own evolutionary process in the virtual space. Isolated from human control by design, digital intelligence defines its further evolution by itself, slowly growing into an independent subject that will eventually redefine our physical and virtual realities.

Detached from biological, it is a digital-born inhabitant of the metaverse. Will it manifest itself in any three-dimensional shape or will it outgrow our form-oriented reality?

For centuries to come, Artificial Organisms, unfamiliar creatures of the new world, will exist in the digital universes, exploring and building them without our guidance. Perceiving these creatures from our point of view, we can only imagine how they will look, projecting our outdated beliefs onto the unknown future, where might no longer be a place for us.
