Shooting And Editing Life Of Pi. By DP Claudio Miranda & Editor Tim Squyres

Shooting And Editing Life Of Pi. By DP Claudio Miranda & Editor Tim Squyres | (Un)visual Culture | Scoop.it

Posted by definitionmags on February 19, 2013 • 


"The production shot with six Alexa cameras paired on three Cameron Pace Fusion rigs with ARRI / Zeiss Master Primes. The uncompressed HD data was recorded to Codex recorders.  The result is a remarkable cinematic accomplishment that enhances the viewing experience and immerses audiences in a sea of breathtaking imagery. Here DP Claudio Miranda talks about materialising images and emotions on a grand scale for Life Of Pi. 


(...) "I did some early tests with other cameras. We needed strong, controlled highlights. Normally, sunlight reflecting on water is a pretty big digital issue. We shot off the Venice Beach pier with the camera very low to the water. The Alexa was the only camera that didn’t feel electronic in the highlights. That’s pretty critical to the story, with all of the highlights going out of control in the reflections and with characters really close to the water. This was really important to get a handle on. It was a landslide why we chose Alexa. It was obvious very early on that was our camera."

Museum Für Gestaltung Zürich | The Magic of Things

Museum Für Gestaltung Zürich | The Magic of Things | (Un)visual Culture | Scoop.it

Zürich | 29.08.2012 - 06.01.2013

"“The Magic of Things” explores a by-and-large obsolete advertising strategy in the area of the product poster: banal, everyday objects – butter, a sewing machine or shoes – are presented as desirable objects that entice us to buy them. Free from any further context, in the poster they acquire a sensual presence and magic aura. The product poster had its heyday in Switzerland in the 1940s with designers such as Niklaus Stoecklin, Peter Birkhäuser or Otto Baumberger. But soon the isolated focus on the product was no longer enough – the feelings associated with the objects grew increasingly important in advertising. Today the magical depiction of things is experiencing a kind of renaissance: the culture poster presents familiar objects detached from their context and reveals their special aesthetic. In addition to the posters the exhibition presents photographs and advertising films from the epoch of the product poster. They reveal different approaches to advertising products, some of them parallel and some very different"

Wagner:Werk Museum Postsparkasse | Dansk Mobel Disegn. Arne Jacobsen und Poul Kjærholm für Fritz Hansen

Wagner:Werk Museum Postsparkasse | Dansk Mobel Disegn. Arne Jacobsen und Poul Kjærholm für Fritz Hansen | (Un)visual Culture | Scoop.it

Vienna | 2.10.2012 - 17.11.2012

"All over the world Danish furniture design stands as a synonym for timeless elegance and perfect craftmanship. Simplicity, functionality, lightness, material appropriateness, and comfort may be attributed to the tradition of originally small joineries often handed down over several generations. The image of Danish design is mostly based on achievements of the 1950s and 1960s – many of which – manifestations of the postwar period’s organic forms and the possibilities resulting from new techniques and materials – have become icons of modern design."

MACBA | La utopía es posible. ICSID. Eivissa, 1971

MACBA | La utopía es posible. ICSID. Eivissa, 1971 | (Un)visual Culture | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 21.06.2012 - 20.01.2013
"Del 14 al 16 de octubre de 1971 tuvo lugar en Ibiza el VII Congreso del International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID), organizado por la Agrupació de Disseny Industrial del Foment de les Arts Decoratives (ADI/FAD). Lo que podía haber sido un encuentro profesional convencional se convirtió en un acontecimiento sin precedentes en España. En tres días, no solo se hizo un congreso abierto que potenciaba el intercambio y las discusiones entre profesionales y estudiantes; el ICSID de Ibiza se concibió como un punto de confluencia entre el diseño y las formas más experimentales del arte y la arquitectura de la época en nuestro país. En este sentido, precedió a los Encuentros de Pamplona, que se celebraron al año siguiente y prolongaron en un contexto urbano el espíritu innovador que el ICSID insertaba en un entorno natural. La exposición pretende rememorar lo que fue aquel acontecimiento y las ideas que pueden resultar útiles hoy: sostenibilidad, participación, solidaridad, nuevas relaciones industria-sociedad y el papel liberador de la experiencia del arte. La exposición se compone de material documental, fotografías y películas, procedentes de diversos archivos y de fondos del MACBA."

MCA Chicago | Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec: Bivouac

MCA Chicago | Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec: Bivouac | (Un)visual Culture | Scoop.it

Chicago | 20.10.2012 - 20.01.2013

"Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec: Bivouac is a mid-career exhibition of work by two of the most exciting and innovative designers working today. Born and based in France, the Bouroullecs bring high-tech manufacturing ideas to standard furniture and design formats, such as the communal kitchen table and the basic dining chair, resulting in timeless, straightforward products devoid of trendy gimmicks. The brothers not only design elegant and beautiful objects—chairs, sofas, lamps, tables, and dishware—but they also develop pioneering hybrid forms that defy categorization as they shape space in clever new ways. The title of the show is inspired by this multipurpose hybridity, as a bivouac is a lightweight encampment or shelter that can be adapted to its environment just as Bouroullec products are activated by their end-users and the spaces they inhabit."
