Gosheven: 'I have very apocalyptic visions of the world' - Shape Gosheven is the solo project of Bálint Szabó, member of the improvisation trio 12z and curator at Trafó House in Budapest. Leaper is his first solo venture, released in May 2017 on Opal Tapes. He put to use the several years he spent studying different tuning systems for electric guitar. He’s developed a unique electric guitar with strings that can be placed in a stereo field to further enrich the already unusual sounds of the retuned instrument, inspired by some of the greatest American minimalists, such as La Monte Young and Terry Riley, and Italian Renaissance composers (“Unbalanced Holiness” is based on a composition by the great Giovanni Maria Trabaci).

If you're a filmmaker, they all require a ton of extras. But not everyone has a big enough budget or network to acquire them, which can be pretty stressful considering that at some point in your filmmaking journey, you're going to want/need to shoot a scene that requires a crowd. That's why it's crucial for every indie filmmaker to learn how to trick your audience into thinking that your five roommates (god help you) are actually a throng of wasted co-eds thrashing to EDM -- or whatever your scene calls for. This video from our buddies at Film Riot offers some techniques on how to do this both in-camera with clever blocking and camera settings, as well as in post by compositing multiple shots of the same extras.
