Enter Pyongyang

An amazing photo and video project showing the daily lives in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, by JT Singh and Rob Withworth.

Enter Pyongyang from JT Singh on Vimeo.

The video is created with a mixture of time-lapse photography and videography.

BTW, the video was commissioned by Koryo Tours, a tour operator for those interested in visiting North Korea.

Visual Effects from Game of Thrones Season 4

Haven’t started watching the Game of Thrones yet even though a number of colleagues in the office have been raving about it. I just might start watching after viewing this video of the wonderful visual effects done by Mackevision that were used in Season 4.

Wonderful step-by-step (sort of) of how they did it.

Parenthood – Apple’s New iPhone 5s Ad

Apple released a new commercial today about parents use the iPhone, iPhone apps and other hardware accessories in their daily lives with their kids.

I have definitely used the iPhone’s flashlight to look for Matthew’s blanket in the middle of the night after he has flung it off his bed.

Will need to go check out some of the apps and hardware accessories that I saw in the commercial. I saw a Withings Smart Baby Monitor, WeMo home automation, and Kinsa smart thermometer.

I quite like the brushing teeth app, MyTeeth although Matthew is now a little too old to still have to learn how to brush his teeth properly.

Soccer – 55 vs 2

With football being the craze at the moment with the 2014 World Cup on in Brazil, this is a pretty interesting video of 2 Japanese national players (Shinji Kagawa and Hiroshi Kiyotake) playing 2 match-ups with 33 and 55 kids defending their goal respectively.

Watch and be amazed by their skills!

Numerous Permutations from a Deck of Cards

There are 80,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 permutations possible from shuffling a deck of playing cards. That’s 80 and 66 zeros after that.

From the video, “Any time you pick up a well shuffled deck, you are almost certainly holding an arrangement of cards that has never before existed and might not exist again.”

Street Typography

Amazing video of writing of a sign on the road!

It is more or less written freehand as there were just faint marks on the road showing how the letters should be spaced. There is definitely no stencils used. Wish I could draw something freehand like this!!!

International Versions of “Let It Go”

Disney just released an album of the song “Let It Go” sung in 50 different languages.

Here’s a YouTube video of “Let It Go” sung in 25 different languages:

Personally, I loved the movie “Frozen“. Will be going to get the Blu-Ray version of it once it’s out in stores in Australia.

Apple – 30 Years of Mac

To commemorate 30 years of the development of the Mac, Apple released a new ad a couple of weeks back. The ad was shot entirely with iPhone 5s and edited on Macs.

Apple also released a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the above ad.

And I must add that I’m a big Apple fan!! :)
