Filming from below and filming from above. Two different techniques, two different approaches, both contributing to the film’s essence.

Kogognada has created two short fascinating videos; the first one is a compilation of Quentin Tarantino’s shots filmed from below.

And the second one is compilation of Wes Anderson’s overhead shots of hands doing all sort of things.

Pretty cool. Don’t you think?

Beauty is not always in the streets, it is on the walls as well. In particular, on the walls of Brasilândia Vila, a poor suburb on the outskirts of São Paulo, where Madrid Spain based artist collective Boa Mistura transformed them into a typographical scenery.

Words such as beleza, amor, doçura, firmeza and orgulho (beauty, love, sweetness, firmness and pride) were painted on the walls in perspective and revealed from just one point of view,  as people walk past the one location where the lines merge into the form of words.

Erased words

Just erase: words, commas, sentences to reveal the true emotion and find poetry. Newspaper Blackout, a Tumblr blog of Austin-based artist and writer Austin Kleon (included in TIME magazine’s list of the  30 Must-See Tumblr Blogs) creates”blackout poetry” just by blacking out unwanted text with a permanent marker and revealing new and shorter versions of poetic expression.
