SO, I LIVE IN THE FUTURE NOW. It's 2013. It's true, I have access to better technology on my phone than existed in all the world just a few decades ago. That really astonishes me. Case in point. A couple of years ago I got the Bad Robot fx app for my phone. Which made me able to layer lots of canned fx shots over whatever I shot on my phone. Check out the video below as an example. When I uploaded the video YouTube even asked me if it wanted me to have it stabilize my shaky camera... what the hell?
I told it no. I like the shaky camera look.
It might not look super real, but it's pretty darn good considering my total investment is a free app on my phone. It has falling rocks from the sky, car crashes, monsters, all of it looks pretty great and you can just point your phone, film something, and ta da!
ON A RELATED NOTE, The Walking Dead returns to televisions sometime in the next week or so. To celebrate, they released another free app for my phone... It turns photos of people into photos of ZOMBIE people. Not too long ago it would have taken me awhile in photoshop to produce a zombie version of myself. Now, I click a button and there it is... I can't say that either app is perfect, they both have severe limitations, but it's still pretty awesome.
I decided to too a series of self-portraits the other day with the app. Anyone who follows me on twitter might have seen a few of these then. I had a blast with it. Awesome stuff.
Also, I'm thinking of making one of these my new twitter avatar, at least for a few days. Any thoughts?
|I remind myself of something... Oh yes, a zombie!|
|Oh, funny story, being a zombie makes all lenses get scratchy looking.|
|I ordered take out... I asked for extra brains|
|Getting ready for work. My first pic as a zombie|
|Ugh. Sometimes being a zombie is hard.|
