Watch the History of Horror and an investigation into the Psychology of Why We Like Horror

Last year we produced a film lesson on the history of horror movies – tracing the ups and downs of Horror Cycles. This year it was picked up and featured in USA Today.

So this Halloween, kick back and take a tour of the history of the horror genre – with a look at the psychology of why we actually enjoy getting frightened at the movies:

What Goes Into a Color Grade for a L’Oréal Commercial

Senior Colorist  demonstrates the effort that goes into coloring a quick snippet from a L’Oréal Commercial using Baselight

Video description below

In this breakdown I show some of my techniques that I use for beauty commercials. I recorded the monitor output and edited the 30 min realtime-grading down to this 3 min clip. To be honest, I don’t show to much of the beauty retouching and skin grading. The model has a very nice skin and with the help of Garnier it was not much work for me.
I hope you enjoy the breakdown.

Some Infos:
The commercial was shot on a Arri Alexa. I graded it on a Baselight at 1000Volt in Istanbul.
Music: Disclosure – You & Me – Flume Remix (Josh A Remix)

Building the Black Hole for Interstellar

What does a black hole look like up close? Filmmakers recruited theoretical physicist Kip Thorne for some help with Christiopher Nolan’s Interstellar

KIP THORNE LOOKS into the black hole he helped create and thinks, “Why, of course. That’s what it would do.”  This particular black hole is a simulation of unprecedented accuracy. It appears to spin at nearly the speed of light, dragging bits of the universe along with it. (That’s gravity for you; relativity is superweird.) In theory it was once a star, but instead of fading or exploding, it collapsed like a failed soufflé into a tiny point of inescapable singularity. A glowing ring orbiting the spheroidal maelstrom seems to curve over the top and below the bottom simultaneously.

All this is only natural, because weird things happen near black holes. For example, their gravity is so strong that they bend the fabric of the universe. Einstein explained this: The more massive something is, the more gravity it produces. Objects like stars and black holes do this so powerfully that they actually bend light and pull space and time with it. And it gets weirder: If you were closer to a black hole than I was, our perceptions of space and time would diverge. Relatively speaking, time would seem to be going faster for me.
