Harrowdown Hill and SmallGantics

Recently I developed a style which I have dubbed SmallGantics and was asked to incorporate the technique into director Chel White's new video for Thom Yorke titled "Harrowdown Hill". I was originally inspired to pursue the technique by tilt lens photography stills, but I wanted to take it one step further and treat moving footage to make full size imagery appear small with short DOF. Here are a few stills from the final video.

Go HERE to see the video and HERE or HERE to read the story of how we managed to pull off this technique.

I just discovered Bent Image Lab from the Zune Arts web site. You guys do some really awesome work. Love Moodbots and Lux.

This is a nice video, I came across it when I was learning about depth of field awhile back. Amazing how such huge landscapes and buildings can look tiny when you selectively blur out parts of an image or moving picture. There was some discussion awhile back on the Stopmotionanimation messageboard about this video, it's a cool effect.

It's been awhile since I posted that, but I just saw something today that reminded me of Smallgantics.

Isn't it cute? :) No idea how it was done, though. Slightly different too. It's time lapse.
