11 facts about the shooting of LWYMMD video (from reputation magazines)
1⃣️Legendary Oscar-winning film special effects make-up artist Bill Corso (Deadpool, Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens) and his team spent 6 hours meticulously turning live Taylor into very, very dead Taylor.
2⃣️Milky contacts were used to create the effect of frosted corpse eyes so Taylor was rendered almost completely blind for the zombie scenes.
3⃣️Black ink was smeared on Taylor’s teeth and gums to achieve the look of extreme decay and had to be continuously re-applied.
4⃣️Taylor wore the actual dress from the “Out of the Woods” music video for this look. The make-up for Taylor’s hands and feet included net sleeves and gloves, which elongated her fingers and toes, creating a skeletal appearance.
5⃣️The faux diamonds used for this scene were actually a combination of a sequined blanket and thousands of plastic stones, as well as several pieces of antique jewelry strewn about on top.
6⃣️A special effects team of dozens of CGI experts worked tirelessly for four months to create thousands of snakes for this scene.
7⃣️The dancers from the 1989 World Tour were asked to appear as extras in this scene as well as the vault scene and the birdcage scene.
8⃣️The swing in this birdcage was 25 feet off the ground and required Taylor to be raised up by a lift and tethered to the swing for safety.
9⃣️Taylor’s music video director and long-term collaborator Joseph Kahn returns for their most ambitious project to date.
1⃣️0⃣️Taylor secretly snuck into rehearsal facilities in both London and LA on order to prepare for the video shoot.
1⃣️1⃣️Actresses were hired to be Taylor look-a-likes in order to represent “the old Taylor.” As soon as the cameras stopped rolling on some of these fight scenes, the entire cast and crew laughed hysterically.
Hey Guys! Here’s a little fun cool down MAP part with my Girlfriend @luxites! It was really fun to do (and taught me a lot about after effects lol). If you’re worried about Five Giants I am still working on it and it is on it’s way! Life has been busy, but I ask you all to be patient.
Congratulations, guys! It’s been one year since you first debuted! Since then you’ve released 4 mini albums – one of them self-composed. You’ve filmed 5 music videos, released various side projects and collaborations with one another + other artists, and even starred in a drama. You’ve all faced some hardships in the past year, but despite that you all remained hard-working and supportive of one another through it all. So far, in 2017, you have collected 3 awards. At the Asia Model Awards 2017 you received the New Star Award, at the Soribada Best K-Music Awards 2017 you received the New Korean Wave Rookie Award, and at the Korean Music Festival’s 10th Anniversary you received the Rising Star Award. May this year’s accomplishments only be the beginning of a bigger, brighter future!!
The Adventures of Shuri and Peter Parker: Is That Blood?
Summary: T'Challa must spend two weeks at the Avengers Compound working on an agreement with Tony Stark in light of Wakanda opening its borders and resources. He brings along his sister, Shuri, who meets the equally nerdy Peter Parker.
Basically a bunch of short, fluffy drabbles about a fantastic friendship between two adorable dorks.
Characters: Shuri, Peter Parker, Tony Stark, T’Challa
A/N: So this is going to be a bunch of random drabbles about their shenanigans. Please send me ideas!! I have five parts planned out so far (I’ll post the first two tonight), but I want to keep it going!
Tony and T’Challa wearily stumbled into the kitchen after a three hour video call. Now that Wakanda was willing to open its borders and resources, Tony and Stark Industries wanted to be part of the first wave of projects. Scientific collaboration? YES! Boring video calls with people in suits? NO!
“Thank god for lunch breaks,” Tony sighed as he pulled a few stacks of pre-made meals out of the fridge.
T’Challa merely nodded as Tony passed him a package. “Leaders in our country are not so different. Everyone likes to talk too much.”
Tony opened his mouth to reply, but was interrupted by Peter racing towards the sink. Shuri was tagging along with handfuls of crimson tissues. Peter yanked on the roll of paper towels, and half of them fell to the floor. He stuffed them up his nose, and the white paper turned bright red in milliseconds. He pushed his head out over his torso to avoid getting blood on the new Spiderman suit Tony had given him a few months ago.
Tony shot up out of his chair. “Is that blood?” he yelped.
Peter stared at Tony. “Ub, no?” he replied, his voice stuffed up.
“That’s not a question you’re supposed to answer with another question,” Tony scolded, crossing his arms.
T’Challa glared at Shuri. “Wenzeni?” he asked in his native tongue. “Ndi xelele ngoku.”
Shuri rolled her eyes. “Nothing!” she insisted in English.
“People do not bleed for nothing, Shuri!” he shot back.
Peter held up his hands, dropping more towels in the process. “It’ds really no big deal,” he replied. “We just neebded to try someting.”
Shuri nodded. “See?”
Tony’s curiosity was piqued. “What exactly did you need to try in your suit?”
Peter opened his mouth, but Shuri cut him off. “You’re technology was mediocre at best,” she began. “His suit’s processors were not functioning at their highest potential. I made some modifications and Peter tested them.”
“Your modifications made him bleed?” T’Challa asked.
“Mediocre?!” Tony gasped at the same time.
Peter shook his head. “No, no, that was me!” He threw the rest of the paper towels away. “I was testing out one of Shuri’s new web slingers, and uh…” He blushed sheepishly.
“He fell,” Shuri deadpanned.
“On my face,” Peter admitted.
Shuri stepped up to his face and inspected the damage. “The bleeding stopped!” she exclaimed. “We should finish the test runs!”
Before Tony or T’Challa could stop them, Peter and Shuri rushed off, both shouting “Goodbye!” over their shoulders.
Tony looked down at his food and back up at T’Challa. “It’s going to be a long two weeks, isn’t it?” he asked.
Børns speaks about how Lana inspired God Save Our Young Blood
In an interview with Beats 1 DJ Matt Wilkinson, Børns spoke about how Del Rey inspired “God Save Our Young Blood,” and came to sing on the track as well. “We met virtually before we met face to face I guess that’s how it is these days. the first time we met we FaceTimed and then I started doing a lot of collaborations with her sister Chuck who’s an amazing photographer,” Børns recalled. “Chuck shot all the photography for my album and we’ve been collaborating on some video projects and Lana was around and I showed her some stuff on the record. I really had her in mind when I was writing ‘Young Blood’ and I think subliminally I was trying to do background vocals that sounded like her I was trying to do my best Lana impression and she was like 'I feel like I’m already on this song’ and I was like yeah that’s kind of what I was going for.”
I made a video of all the draw-overs I did for my collaborative project with @oanamihaelaphotography (to post on my Facebook & Twitter) because I spent so much time on this so I might as well make a video too 😂 Thanks, Oana, for DMing me & getting it all started, most especially for letting me doodle on these amazing photos ❤️ (my personal solo birthday art will be up tomorrow ❤️)
To celebrate SideM’s upcoming 4th anniversary in July, we hope Producers will take part in our collaborative video project to show our love for the series! Anyone that likes SideM is welcome to participate!
Essentially, we hope to gather videos from Producers around the world and piece them into one whole video. You can essentially do anything for your part of the project.
Eric being in love with an art student from across the hall and sometimes the video class helps them out
Everytime he’d be about to help you out with anything, he’d always ask you artsy stuff once there would be an opportunity, or just to kill the silence
Trying to impress you by talking about how deep art can get and how it is a window to one’s soul
complimenting your art 24/7
“Hey uh, if you have time, do you wanna record stuff with us? It’d be a nice collaboration.” - asking you just to spend more time with you
Hardcore volunteering as soon as the teacher asks who will deliver some documments to the art class teacher during a lesson
Totally hyping out anytime the video & art class were about to collaborate on some project. After that being announced, he’d sprint his soul out to the art class to ask you if you wanna be in group with him.
Known for his fantastical and dreamy illustrations and drawings –from bird headed warriors to out of this world landscapes with cosmic skies and mystical female warrior / priestesses, Oakland based artist Jon Carling has filled endless sketchbooks with his unique imagination. Carling’s early love of music has influenced his artistic and creative processes, from creating and trading fanzines to collaborating with various bands such as The Brian Jonestown Massacre to Dead Meadows. We were glad to have Jon on our Vans Art Spotlight where he talks about sketching in the shower, growing up with music, and getting out of a creative rut.
We have no doubt his interview will inspire you to fill your own sketchbooks!
QAC 52 - Non-Binary vs Trans Identity | “Transitioning” | #NonBinaryYT
as someone who is non-binary but who does not identify as trans, i have a rather complicated relationship with the term and concept of "transitioning" and with trans-specific community, resources, etc in general.
this video, a submission to the #NonBinaryYT collaboration project, is about my personal relationship with trans identity, my coming out process, what has and hasn’t changed for me during the 4 years that i’ve identified as non-binary, thoughts on “transitioning” as non-binary and conflicted feelings about rejecting trans identity.
————– TIME POINTS ————
@ 00:00 - Intro: What is #NonBinaryYT? ——– (ie. you should totally participate if you’re non-binary and interested) @ 01:00 - Q1. Do you identify as trans? What does that mean to you? ——– (ie. not identifying as trans and why that is uuggghh) @ 02:58 - Q2. What did coming out for the first time look like for you? ——– (ie. discovering the word non-binary & changing identities) @ 04:19 - Q3.
