Metal Heart, Moving Tilt Shift Goodness

I think this tilt shift stuff is kinda neat, but more of a novelty than anything, not that I think it’s easy to do. But when you add motion it definitely elevates it to a whole other level. The video above is called Metal Heart and features a tilt shift video of a monster truck rally. What ends up happening is that it looks like Micro Machine monster trucks, almost like something you’d see on Robot Chicken. The speeded up, jerky motions of the trucks is pretty awesome, as are the super saturated colors as well. Definitely loving this.

    Wow. That is both incredible, hilarious, and in some way, poignant. It’s like watching legos come to life.

    I know there are photo editing techniques that can be used to make ordinary photos look like miniatures, so maybe they used a similar technique for this video. I dont think those are actual miniatures.

    Oh, tilt shift photography is that editing technique. Never mind!
