I posted a while ago about the video for the track “White Knuckles” by group OK GO. Have a look at the making of clip below the video underneath, it just goes to show how many people and how much effort go into realising creative ideas!
(The video that was finally broadcast was ultimately captured on camera in one take after several weeks of rehearsal, the footage of the take starts around 6:30 into the clip)
A few people had asked a while ago about lifecasting, or making a mould then casting it, from someones face, hands or even whole body. They also wanted to see some more pictures of the headcast I did at Bentley Chemicals with Rob Price.
The Oomph Festival is on its way, come and have a look at some of the work we have done with Q3 Academy and Creative Partnerships and better still book a place at one of my CPD introductory sessions!…
Oomph! is a festival of creative exploration which will take place throughout the Black Country, Telford & Wrekin and Shropshire from 9th – 23rd November 2011. See more at http://oomphfestival.wordpress.com/
Wednesday evening saw the opening of Q3 pupil designed “in animi sonus” music and visual fused installation.
Invited guests were treated to a surreal exploration of students’ emotions, feelings and thoughts on life, expressed through sound-scapes, visual imagery and some bizarre props, all installed in spot lit darkness.
Sarah Mellors, Deputy Head of Q3 Academy commented:
“Never in my time at Q3 Academy have I ever seen anything like this, amazing work! I felt an array of emotions from sadness to joy, amazing maturity to vulnerability. I am overwhelmed!”
Creative Partnerships and Q3 Academy are considering potential plans for a public viewing of the installation next month and repetition of the event annually.
Special thanks go to Miss Burroughs, Miss Mellors and Mr Dawson for their assistance and enthusiasm on this project.
Interesting stuff! Watch this space for more news…
Our final bulk editing for the DVD’s ended last week in Brighton, so we’ll be announcing the launch dates for them very soon. We also have some other news concerning our working with local community services, but more of that in another post when things are firmed up better.
For the moment we thought we’d share with you these bizarre shapes developed by Chris Sangwin, check out his site and go buy his book if you like a head scratchin read! (Follow the link to his site)
A quick post amidst the chaos of DVD development…a recent brilliant workshop at Moseley School in Birmingham produced ideas for re-theming a film poster or designing your own. Two winners were chosen and their poster ideas are here for your lookage! (Notice the blood on Vader’s face is in the shape of two Jedi fighting!)
A tiny “Spog” creature featured on the upcoming Easy Art Pro Training DVD set has made its way onto a screensaver for your entertainment. Feel free to right click and download and use it, for any nice non profit making purposes of course…!
This picture was taken recently and looked so strange we thought it fitting to launch a regular quiz to see if anyone can guess what the picture is of. We look forward to receiving your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org with what your ideas are!
