Box explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera.
I had the opportunity to co-produce and direct a YouTube web series with Adam Buck, for Red Bull Media House in 2012 called Winch Sessions. This was by far my favorite episode, and some of my crews best work. Along with amazing imagery, you get to learn how cranberries are harvested.
The fun starts about 3 minutes in. No berries were destroyed while making this.
Should you always believe what you see right in front of you? Can you really trust your senses? Has technology made things clearer or has it muddied the waters between reality and fiction? And is anything really as it seems?
Highlights of ILLUSION: NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS at Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin, July 2013. This exhibition combines magic with psychology, optical illusions with scientific reasoning, and confusion with clarity. It investigates how perception underpins the way we see, feel, think and understand our world. This exhibition reveals that what our brain perceives is often radically different from what our eyes actually observe.
This is Slope Point. It is the southernmost tip on New Zealand's South Island. The airstreams loop the vast circumpolar Southern Ocean unobstructed for 2000 miles and then they smash into land here.
Check out these great pictures of some amazing trees.

The "sequence" category is particularly amazing.

First official teaser for "In Saturn's Rings", a giant screen space film for IMAX®, giant screen and fulldome theaters distributed by BIG & Digital, coming spring 2014. The film is 100% created using only flat 2D photographs (often hundreds or thousands per frame). No 3D models, texture mapping, 3D CGI, camera projection, cloning or painting or any other VFX techniques are used - every pixel is what was captured in the photograph.
It's just... wow.
People come, people go but buildings never change. Unless there's an earthquake in San Franciso, that is.
Awesome people (and some animals) doing awesome stuff you will probably never be able to do. 1080p recommended.

The music video for Do I Wanna Know?, the latest single from British indie rock band Arctic Monkeys. The surreal line-drawing animation matches the roller coaster ride that is unrequited love.

Spooky and beautiful. I would love to visit them all.
No matter how long I look at it, my mind refuses to believe. See the video for a better idea of how it all comes together.

Inspired in part by the great geography game GeoGuessr, I spent some time recently in Google Maps, finding the edges of their Street View image coverage.

Built with Hyperlapse.js, Three.js (r57), a modified version of GSVPano.js, and Google Maps API v3. This site requires WebGL and is best viewed in Google Chrome on a decent machine.
Translation: This is pretty freakin' cool.

German photographer Martin Rietze caught a series of spectacularly breathtaking shots of a volcano, shrouded in flying lava and electrifying lightning, erupting in southern Kyushu, Japan.
The underwater images captured by photographer Mark Tipple are so unlike anything you've ever seen, it's easy to mistake them for scenes from another world. They belong to a series known collectively as The Underwater Project, and they are beyond spellbinding.
‘Surf photography’s been around forever. I wanted something different.’
Every time Eric Wareheim of "Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job!" directs a music video, it automatically becomes the de facto greatest music video ever. However, the new video for Beach House's song "Wishes," off 2012's critically and commercially successful Bloom, may claim that spot permanently.
I'm sure opinions will vary.

As anyone who's been in or around San Francisco recently knows, it's hard not to spot the Bay Lights. After dusk, the western span of the Bay Bridge fills with a jaw-dropping display comprised of 25,000 LEDs, mounted on vertical cables 30 feet apart.

Progress continues on the East Side Access project as of February 12, 2013. The project will allow the Long Island Rail Road to access Grand Central Terminal for the first time.
These photos shows work on the caverns underneath Grand Central Terminal that will house a future concourse for arriving and departing Long Island Rail Road trains.
