Transient — Gorgeous Storm Chasing 4k Video from Dustin Farrell

Director of Photography Dustin Farrell (http://dfvc.com) created this compilation of the best of his storm chasing video from the summer of 2017.

And it is achingly gorgeous....

"Lightning is like a snowflake. Every bolt is different. I learned that lightning varies greatly in speed. There are some incredible looking bolts that I captured that didn't make the cut because even at 1000fps they only lasted for one frame during playback. I also captured some lightning that appear computer generated it lasted so long on the screen."

New Media Chinese Art from Yang Yongliang

Shanghai-based artist Yang Yongliang has taken the eyes and heart of the more traditional Chinese landscape and calligraphy, and invested it with the expressive ability of the newest technology and techniques, including digital manipulation, video and photography.

"As long as the characteristics don't change, the media you use to express the art doesn't matter."

I think these landscapes in Chinese Porcelain are pretty amazing, and I am absolutely in love with the video landscapes. 

Here is a sample of the video referenced in the Creator's Project piece:

A Floating Football Pitch in Thailand and the Football Club That Built It

With no access to dry land, the kids on Koh Panyee, an iconic small fishing village built on stilts situated in the Phang Nga Province, decided to build their own floating football pitch after watching the 1986 World Cup.

 

Panyee FC is one of the most successful youth football clubs in Southern Thailand.

We first covered this amazing story in Episode 10 of Season 3 (video below).

Wyoming Wildscapes

One of the first websites I made as a User Experience Designer was the state tourism website for Wyoming. I'd never been to Wyoming, so I got a couple chances to go around the state. Not just beautiful, but beautiful in ways I'd never considered.

This video captures a lot of that.

Utilizing experimental editing techniques, time-lapse, and beautiful cinematography, the film explores the poetic mode of documentary film to convey the experience of this iconic, Pacific Northwestern metropolis.

3 - Foursquare Check-ins for 4 days in Tokyo and NYC

Each dot represents a check-in during this 96 hour period. Super fascinating to see the different types of check-ins ripple across the city as time of day effects the rhythm of all of these individuals in a fairly regular pattern.

my pick - 5 things to buy a shoestring traveller - Devereau Chumrau
Even though some of my picks may appear to be "un-shoestring like," the main concern here is that you "shoestring" the trip and not the preparation for the trip.  Anyone who has tried to skimp in the beginning will probably end up paying much more later on... Remember YOU are all you have out there.

5 - Wakeboarding in a Cranberry Bog

The whole process of harvesting cranberries is in of itself fascinating. That someone thought to flood the fields to take advantage of the float that healthy cranberries have is pretty ingenious. 

And of course, Red Bull thought to film some star wakeboarders being winched across the bogs. Mesmerizing and amazing.
