5 Things We've Been Watching: January 2023
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.
The Wizardry Behind 3D Billboard
Why it’s a thing: We have posted about these incredible 3D billboard before. From New York to London, they have capturing attention everywhere. Is is fun to watch someone explain how they get made! While it might be new tech it is brought to life with ancient art of forced perspective. Making the old new again in very impressive ways.
POV: You Are the Shovel at the Ranger's Game
Why it’s a thing: Yes, it is ANOTHER POV video. But what we love about this one is the real unique, "you can't get this just anywhere" view. Using something like a POV drone or POV camera style is a really fun way to help get your audiences into a place they don't normally get to go/see.
Mic Comparison from Verge
Why it’s a thing: We have stressed time and time again how important audio is to every video project. And sometimes to truly understand how different things sound until you hear them back to back to back. This video is an easy to understand review of how you really sound on a call with those ear buds in. Will you be changing your mic after this?
you'll never guess how they got this shot
Why it’s a thing: Who doesn't love a good behind-the-scenes reveal? We didn't expect it to include (spoilers) an entire fake painted 3D illusion hallway. Could it have been done in post? Possibly. But is this way better? Definitely.
'Beau is Afraid' Trailer
Why it’s a thing: A good trailer makes you want to see the movie. And this one does that and then some. We are in love with the sound design, the match framing, the integrated animations. It has it all! We aren't even sure all of these shots are in the actual movie, and that honestly makes the editing on this trailer even more spectacular. We can only hope the movie holds up to this 2:24 mini masterpiece.
