Hello Creactives!

You Keep Me Spinning Round, Round, Round

A camera, a Gorillapod and a $4 egg timer combine to make the ultimate 360 degree time-lapse video.  Move over rotating restaurants,  this souped-up egg-timer is an accessible way to feel totally immersed in an activity or skyline.  Poised on top of a Gorillapod Focus, this great time-lapse video makes you feel like you are part of the conversation. For further details on how to recreate this awesome experience visit Philip Bloom’s Blog.

Vanity in the Eye of the Camera

This great New York Times piece by David Coleman titled “Me, Myself and iPhone- Mastering the Art of Taking Your Own Photo,” investigates the best way to take self-portraits in the digital age. Fueled by the increasing need to have pictures of ourselves online for work and pleasure, the self-portrait has become a must. Of course,  Gorillapods make the picture taking process more doable – or at least, so says the article.

Inspiring Skills

Check out this half and half pro. I don’t know how it is physically possibly that it doesn’t just end up as a big knot, but I guess that is where the skill lies. And, of course filmed with a Gorillapod.

Fight to the Death

Apparently, Mr. Dinosaur got creamed by Mr. Gorillatorch in a knock-down, drag out fight in the messy land of the design team’s desk.

    I checked out Phillip’s blog, pretty cool, i didn’t realize that he used his iPhone.  I have enjoyed doing 360 degree time lapse videos with my Canon S95, CHDK software and an Ikea egg timer.  Here’s what the results look like for me:
