I just wanted to post some inspiration under katies until we can figure out what is causing me troubles on the forum with regards to my account.
So to start off I found this video a couple days ago and just liked it because of how simple it is. take a normally boring thing, a plane taking off, and shoot it in an interesting way. By the end of the video you do have a sense of how small we are just like the creator says in his video comments. I also like his choice to remove the color makes you pay attention more to the details of the ground I feel.
This second video relates to what you were talking about HDR in class last week. I always thought it would be cool to be able to do true HDR with video being able to have to sources being above and below exposure and i guess these guys figured it out. Really creates some interesting looks that I feel like cinematographers could latch onto.
Lastly is this stop motion video. The amount of planning and pre-vis to make this movie just astonishes me and the creators pulled of their concept quite well
