Google Jump, Avicii and “Waiting for Love”


For the past two months, I had the opportunity to work with some very creative engineers, filmmakers and coders in some of the very first field tests of this new, exciting camera rig.

The effort culminated in a collaboration with EDM artist Avicii and YouTube director Kurt Hugo Schneider, and resulted in an awesome 360 video for Avicii's latest single "Waiting for Love"

Bowerbirds: November and December


With the end of 2013, Olivari's One Year of Little campaign came to a close. In December we published the final episodes of many of the series created for this project. Here are two final videos for Bowerbirds: November and December.

Bowerbirds: October


This month's meditative, repeating and almost zen-like song called for something slower and relaxing. Paint drying and grass growing felt too cliche, so we settled on having a mountain range erect over the course of the song. This was also the first Bowerbirds clip where I decided to take my hands off the keyboard and let my very talented team do some work.

Bowerbirds: September


This is the very last Bowerbirds video I will be doing myself. While we still have a few more to go, they will be created and animated by the very talented members of my team as opposed to my 100% hands-on approach I cultivated so far.

Bowerbirds: August


Fireflies in an early evening.... It's probably no surprise that this video was vastly inspired by amazing photography of Yume Cyan. We combined simulated particle fireflies created with custom aperture sprites with a footage of the forrest and then revealed it with the mattes shot specifically for this project (as usual).

Bowerbirds: July


For the July Bowerbirds clip, I decided to try something new. I created a realistic model of the Moon, based on the elevation maps gathered by NASA and animated the illumination phases as the light (the Sun) traveled around in. Having been recently turned onto the Mystery Science Theater 3000 by Conor, I then stylized it to look and feel like a stop motion project from the early days of Sci-Fi.

Bowerbirds: May


It's a new month (well, almost the end of it) and a new Bowerbirds song time. This time I have used some of the techniques quite familiar to the followers of my tutorial series. The overarching principle remains the same - a video loop revealed by mixing Cyan, Magenta and Yellow inks. It's quite a jump from the April one and we're already brewing some ideas for June :)

Symphony of Science


Symphony of Science is a project oriented towards bringing the scientific knowledge and philosophy to the public through the medium of music. Lead by musician and producer, John Boswell, SoS remixes quotes from famous scientists and science enthusiasts into electronic music, probably best classified as IDM. The songs are then released in multitude of audio and video formats, from FLAC to MP3, from WMV to YouTube videos.
