Whitestone Motion Pictures is proud to present Heartless: The Story of the Tin Man.
Based on the backstory of one of the most beloved childrenʼs novels of all time comes the extraordinary love story between a simple woodsman and a beautiful maiden. Not having many possessions but wanting to marry his maiden, the woodsman sets his heart to build a large and beautiful cabin.
L. Frank Baum wrote the back story to the Tin Woodsman in his book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Heartless: The Story of the Tin Man is Whitestone Motion Pictures retelling this little known story of the tragic arc of a beloved character who was once human, made of flesh and blood that turned into tin.

Quick test of the Kodak 2393 emulation LUT. Footage shot on the Epic using the Samyang / Rokinon 85mm T1.5 lens, mostly at 50 or 75fps. Download the LUT for free and read instructions on how to use it here: juanmelara.com.au/print-film-emulation-luts-for-download/
Using a film emulation LUT is a quick and accurate way to give your footage the film look. This is how the pros do it on feature films!
I’ve used this Kodak 2393 LUT on all the grades in my Vimeo videos. This time I’ve kept grading to a minimum so you can see the effects of the LUT.
Also included in the package are Fujifilm 3510, Fujifilm 3513 and Kodak 2383 LUTs.
Update: First colour grading tutorial finally released: juanmelara.com.au/the-summer-blockbuster-colour-grading-tutorial/
A polish born artist Pawel Altheamer presented his new installation during the Open’er music festival. All of the music festival attendees could decorate and write on it creating a communal artwork. Here is a short film presenting the process.
Paweł Althamer (born 1967) is a contemporary Polish sculptor, collaborative artist, and creator of installations and video art. In 2000, Althamer participated in Manifesta 3 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He won the Vincent Award in 2004. In 2007, he presented the exhibition One of many with the Nicola Trussardi Foundation.
His longest-running collaboration is with the Nowolipie Group, an organisation in Warsaw for adults with mental or physical disabilities, to whom he has been teaching a Friday night ceramics class since the early 1990s. In 2008 Althamer arranged for the group to wear matching overalls and take a trip on a biplane, which became the subject of a short film by Althamer’s frequent collaborator, Artur Żmijewski (Winged, 2008).
Althamer was part of the so-called Kowalski Studio at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, along with many of today’s leading generation of Polish artists, including Artur Żmijewski and Katarzyna Kozyra. Under the working title ‘Common Space—Private Space’, Kowalski foregrounded the work of art as an effect of complex non-verbal communication performed by artists in interaction with each other, neutralising individualism: ‘each of the participants had at his/her disposal “a space of their own” […], where they could build elements of their own visual language, and the “common space” open to everyone, where they could conduct simultaneous dialogues with the other participants. All without using words.’

I got the ImpulZ Pro LUT set the day it was launched mainly because this is the first LUT set to consider GH4 in its presets. ImpulZ is a film emulation LUT product, created by VisionColor and distributed by Denver Riddle, founder of Color Grading Central. He has been offering us a superb collection of color grading tools for our modern digital cinematography workflows, so I was sure I’m getting a product of a high quality from him and his affiliates.

If you love visual comedy, you gotta love Edgar Wright, one of the few filmmakers who is consistently finding humor through framing, camera movement, editing, goofy sound effects and music. This is an analysis and an appreciation of a director so awesome that Marvel had to fire him on a holiday.
