Storytelling through (almost) just photography
PetaPixel on the Paul Harvey Super Bowl “Farmer” ad:
One of standout commercials during the Super Bowl yesterday was the above ad by Chrysler promoting its Dodge Ram line of trucks. The 2-minute ad pays tribute to farmers across the nation, and is composed entirely of photographs showing various facets of the farming industry.
Note that the images aren’t entirely static. Watch for bits of parallax, clouds that stream by, particles that float, and more. I love that kind of subtle enlivening, creating something in the cinemagram vein (not quite a photo, not exactly video).
Angry Birds All Levels
I find Evan Roth‘s work endlessly intriguing:
Evan Roth’s Angry Birds All Levels uses black ink on tracing paper to show the gestures required to complete each level of the popular bird-flinging game. Roth placed the paper over his iPhone to capture each swipe and tap, and the result is a work that aims to “contrast the excitement that happens in the gaming environment with the monotony that actually takes places in the physical world.”
