Editing: When To Cut From the outside looking in, editing can seem like a trivial job that anybody with a computer can do. A family member once said to me ‘Isn’t editing just taking away the bad bits?’. I can see why they have that assumption. The Man in the High Castle (2015) In Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle, an adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s alternate history novel of the same name, it’s 1962, the Allies lost World War II, and the two major Axis powers have divvied up North America between them. The narrative revolves around film canisters containing a revolutionary re-writing of history. That notion — of a dangerous film retelling history — is woven into the fabric of the show’s title sequence, created by Elastic.

21st century Gypsies: New Age Travellers adopt horse drawn-caravans and a love of Facebook (as long as it's solar powered) By Daily Mail Reporter Published: 11:35 GMT, 30 September 2012 | Updated: 10:12 GMT, 1 October 2012 They were the inner-city youth who, fuelled by punk spirit, anarchist philosophy and a hate of Margaret Thatcher, clambered aboard a fleet of battered old vehicles to shun the trappings of the modern world for a life of nomadic freedom. And while today's new-age travellers appears to have taken the philosophy even further, preferring to use traditional horse-drawn caravans instead of gas-guzzling vans, they also appear to be embracing the modern technology like mobile phones, laptops and even Facebook. During the late 1980s and 1990s stories about the travellers were commonplace - illegal raves, clashes with the police, drug busts and fury at the criminal justice act. Photographer Iain McKell took his first pictures of new-age travellers 25 years ago.

Burning Question: What is Datamoshing? By Michele Yamazaki on Nov 12, 2014 at 08:25 PM In the mid to late 2000’s, datamoshing, or glitch art, was commonly seen in music videos, in VJ sets or even on public access channels. Here’s an overview of the effect, some examples of what it looks like, a few tutorials and some tools to help you get started datamoshing. Introduction: What is Datamoshing? Datamoshing, or databending, is a complex technique where the movement in one layer of video is applied to another layer of footage, using lossy compression and removed frames to create a glitchy, psychedelic result. Think of what it looks like when your Netflix stream is dragging and creates a ghost image transition.

25 Abandoned Yugoslavia Monuments that look like they're from the Future These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like Tjentište, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and Niš). They were designed by different sculptors (Dušan Džamonja, Vojin Bakić, Miodrag Živković, Jordan and Iskra Grabul, to name a few) and architects (Bogdan Bogdanović, Gradimir Medaković...), conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their "patriotic education." After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost. Podgarić
