"PLEASE WATCH IN HD FULL SCREEN w/SOUND. It is a much better viewing experience. Hopefully you have a 1080P monitor and good connection. If not, bug a friend or colleague that does. It is worth it.

Landscapes: Volume 2 is the second of a three part series (probably). Every frame of this video is a raw still from a Canon 5D2 DSLR and processed with Adobe software. In Volume 2 I again show off my beautiful home state of Arizona and I also made several trips to Utah. This video has some iconic landmarks that we have seen before. I felt that showing them again with motion controlled HDR and/or night timelapse would be a new way to see old landmarks."

Real Time Face Substitution

Real Time Face Substitution 

Faces from arturo castro on Vimeo.

This is a technical demo for face substitution technique. The application works in real time and it's developed using the opensource framework for creative coding openFrameworks: http://openFrameworks.cc

Most of the "magic" happens thanks to Jason Saragih's c++ library for face tracking http://web.mac.com/jsaragih/FaceTracker/FaceTracker.html. The face tracking library returns a mesh that matches the contour of the eyes, nose, mouth and other facial features.
That way the mesh obtained from a photo is matched to my own face in the video. Applying some color interpolation algorithms from Kevin Atkinson's image clone code: http://methodart.blogspot.com/ gives it the blending effect that can be seen in the final footage.

I'm also using Kyle McDonald's ofxFaceTracker addon for openframeworks https://github.com/kylemcdonald/ofxFaceTracker which wraps Jason's library for easier use.
Kyle has uploaded another video giving a try at a different blending algorithm, which get rids of the artifacts and an even creepier look: http://vimeo.com/29348533

Kendrick Lamar & Nosaj Thing – Cloud 10

Kendrick Lamar has teamed up with electronica producer Nosaj Thing and Windows Phone for their Me series. The result of this clash of powers is the uplifting track "Cloud 10." As one might assume, Lamar's lyricism over a production by the Korean-American beatsmith is quite a combination The track is visually accompanied by a behind-the-scenes clip which you can check out above. Enjoy!

What are the limits to 3D graphics, holograms, and a real life point of view? This pushes those limits! The human imagination is an amazing thing. Surreal Visualizations!
