5 Things We've Been Watching: September 2019

5 Things We've Been Watching : September 2019

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.


What a wonderful world. - Oakley Prizm

Watch It Here

Why it’s a thing: Not only is this beautifully shot, but we love the use of first person throughout this video. First person video creates a unique perspective and, especially in sports, provides the viewer with a new way of being able to be right in the middle of the action. 


How to 8-Bit in After Effects. - Fraser Davidson

Watch It Here

Why it’s a thing: Can you teach someone an animation style in 17 seconds? This video is a really fun (and incredibly simple) way of showing how you can animate an 8-bit style in AfterEffects. It is easy to understand and sometimes thats all you need to get your point across. 


Indiana Football In-stadium Hype Video

Watch It Here

Why it’s a thing: This is a great example of mixing video and animation. It not only allows Indiana to show football but also all the beautiful and iconic sights of campus. Plus, in a world where sometimes getting player access for intro shoots is tricky, animation is a perfect way to handle it.


Our Planet - Behind The Scenes

Read it Here

Why it’s a thing: Who doesn't love watching all the animal documentaries, like Our Planet, that are available. You can't help but wonder "how did they get that shot?" and this behind the scenes shows exactly how they did it. While we personally love looking at the gear and the setups, we cannot imagine waiting YEARS for that one perfect shot. Talk about patience. 


How EVERY Team Got Its Name & Identity!

Watch It here 

Why it’s a thing: It is hard to make a 30-minute video feel short, but this video does that so well. Its informative and entertaining. And beautifully combines old footage and easy-to-understand animations to tell a 100-year story that you could watch over and over.
