Green Screen

By placing the green screen on the ground it makes it easier to take photos of yourself doing cool skateboard tricks. The other reason to put the green screen on the ground is because it is too big to put upright.

The Man Who Accidentally Invented Filmmaking

Eadweard Muybridge was an eccentric 19-century photographer, who realized that he could create the illusion of movement by looping together photos. Drew Christie’s short film, The Emperor of Time, tells Muybridge’s story through the perspective of Muybridge’s abandoned son. The feeling of the film is distinctly old-timey: it takes place on a 5-by-5-inch device called a mutoscope and is narrated by Hugh Ross, who also narrated The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. More of Christie’s work can be found on his company’s website, http://kalakala.co/. Author: Nadine Ajaka
