Interesting Lifehacker article about how storytelling activates brain.
I’ve been enjoying re-watching these conversations between Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers on PBS. There is so much enlightening information here, no matter what your views on culture and faith. (I wish they had a player that was more blogger friendly.)
Watch Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth with Bill Moyers Promo on PBS. See more from pbs.
As a video editor and motion designer Art of the Title is one of the sites I frequent for inspiration (although it often leaves me feeling like a total hack). Their latest post, Goldtooth Creative’s slick title sequence for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a video game, is a fascinating look at creative process. The interviews with Paul Furminger from Goldtooth Creative (director of the sequence) and Jean-François Dugas from Eidos-Montreal take us from original concept and sketches through various CG render passes and live action shooting to final product. And while there is a great deal to absorb and learn from this article, I must admit that the tipping point for me was seeing the title sequence for “The Six Million Dollar Man,” posted as one of their visual references (It’s all the way at the bottom). Suddenly I was seven years old again.
