File under Digital Manipulation.

Watch in amazement as Sascha Feiner seamlessly edits the gremlins into several major films including Batman, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and more.

This is amazing to me!
Click below for the “making of” video to understand how difficult the process of lighting and shadowing was. The video is the result of an 18 year obsession with the original films.

2 contemporary Poppers that are starting to think about contact juggling

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009
YouTube Preview Image

A lot of contact jugglers who start to really develop their work soon find that the progression towards dance training and understanding of movement and musicality will greatly benefit their juggling. And so many jugglers become dancers. The contact jugglers who turn into body-poppers… these are my favorite kind. :)

So I’m excited to see this happening the other way around; two of my favorite dancers are showing an interest in contact juggling. Long have I dreamt of a day where David Elsewhere busts out a contact juggling isolation routine… I still have to wait but these clips of Pacman (Phillip Chbeeb) and Moon tutting (with multiple prop manipulations including a sphere) and super-wavy-ninja Bishop busting out a contact juggling improv, will keep me happy.
