5 Things We've Been Watching : January 2023
We love video here at PEG (obviously) and talk about it pretty much non-stop. So, we wanted to share with you five things that caught our eye, started a conversation or gave us a little inspiration over the last month.
An Ostrich Told Me the World Is Fake and I Think I Believe It
Why it’s a thing: This incredible stop motion short film by Lachlan Pendragon is nominated for an Oscar. And we can see why. It's fun, witty and an incredibly unique look at the art of claymation storytelling. The way you watch the main story through the monitor like you were the editor and catch glimpses of the work going into the piece blurred behind - well we have never seen anything like it before. A fun twist on a story within a story. Kudos, and good luck at the Oscars!
Wizard of Oz Technicolor BTS
Why it’s a thing: It's had to believe that there was a time where black/white and technicolor had totally different ways of shooting. This is an interesting look at how they moved from that B/W style into full-color during this iconic Wizard of Oz scene using practical effects like a sepia paint job, a body double and some clever blocking.
HBO Mario Kart Trailer - SNL
Why it’s a thing: This was an SNL "skit." We are using this term skit here loosely because this is so much more than that. The time and effort put into this much production value is far beyond what we are used to seeing on the show. Did they have to do it? Probably not. Are we glad they went there? Oh, we certainly are.
Controlled Chaos In Our Control Room
Why it’s a thing: Controlled chaos are one of the best ways to describe a sports control room - especially during a playoff win! This is such a fun look behind-the-scenes at a big sports moment that fans don't usually get to see. Plus, we love a peek at teams video board graphics, too!
Trek HQ Drone Tour
Why it’s a thing: Drone tours are always a great way to show your company's space. And if your outside space goes directly into a beautiful outdoor scenic bike path?? Yes, please! What a fun (and completely on brand!) video for Trek.
