can we talk about 360°videos for a sec? i’ve never used any vr gear / tech before so i’m not sure how that experience correlates with the one experienced here, were the viewer can manually adjust the image’s perspective in any given direction at any time, with no one perspective in particular being the supposed “pure” or “right” one to represent the “unaltered” video. i found that added ability i was given to be quite addicting and consistently surprising and possibly a little frustrating but undeniably enticing, and i’m really starting to wonder if we’re ever gonna get a feature film that utilizes this technique. many movies have already been shot from a pov perspective, but we’ve never seen any narrative longer than a music video give each individual viewer the power to be their own director in a way to any given project. the work and creativity required to seamlessly create and perfect this method to sustain an entire feature film is probably impossible, but i wouldn’t dismiss it if it became a reality. this tool gives the viewer the possibility to truly dissect the entire onscreen (virtual) world created for any given film. i get that “film” is technically at its roots a “series of still images,” but i don’t think i’m far off in thinking that this could at least be one of many potential tech innovations implemented in various forms of onscreen media: the ability for the viewer to not only see what the filmmaker / creator intends for you to see, but what they don’t intend for you to see, at least at first glance.
Maggie Lindemann’s song ‘Pretty Girl’ is so good, I’ve been listening to it over and over! So, because I’m completely obsessed I had to make it today’s quote of the day… “I keep up with the guys. And you see me holding up my middle finger to the world. Fuck your ribbons and your pearls. ‘Cause I’m not just a pretty girl” I really like the 'I don’t care what you think’ attitude, go listen now 💪🏼💃🏻🔥😍
