Abstract Reaction

Abstract Reaction from Mehdi Hadi on Vimeo.

experimental project called Abstract Reaction. It’s about style and exploration of different representations of a spherical form. By using different methods and textures (Particles,liquid,smoke etc) I tried to make every representation unique with its own dynamic and animation in an abstract way, without losing a round shape. My goal was to see how far I could go with a simple concept and I came up with 50? but for ediTing purposes and in order to stay dynamic, I preferred to show only 21 ( however I will showt the others in a breadown or a tutorial) Thank you and I hope that you’ll enjoy it

Holi Shit

Holi Shit from Frank Sauer on Vimeo.

Holi Shit takes a team of freerunners, geared up with a lot of “men’s toys” which were as great to play with as they are to watch in slow motion and follows their adventures through the abandoned suburbs of Berlin.

During their three days journey, the freerunners and camera crew got lost more than once on the endless highways outside of Berlin Brandenburg. We also realized that the most interesting abandoned places are not only well concealed, but are well guarded by security and police. Ignoring those signs of warning the next days were packed with thrilling moments of spectacular runs and tricks but also, getting chased by ghost hunters at midnight, and getting arrested by the police while shooting a drone shot with smoke grenades on top of the tallest building in the area. Obviously not a good idea!

Every big city has one thing in common. After a while it is quite hard to get out of a place filled with so much energy. Chasing those abandoned buildings and feeling the calmness of a place once filled with so much life was truly inspirational.
