Michael Bay - What is Bayhem?

There are filmmakers we love and then there’s Michael Bay. Even if you dislike him (as I do), Bay has something valuable to teach us about visual perception. This is an exploration of “Bayhem” — his style of camera movement, composition and editing that creates something overblown, dynamic and distinct.

For educational purposes only.

1895-1908 Loie Fuller’s Serpentine Dance 

Loie Fuller was a pioneer of modern dance and of theatrical lightning effects. She developed this dance in 1891 and combined her choreography with silk costumes illuminated by multi-colored lighting of her own design. In several of the Serpentine Dance movies her special colored lighting effects have been translated into fascinating hand-colored effects. Fuller also had a successful Fire Dance of which elements are often incorporated in Serpentine Dance performances, which were also often refrred to as Butterfly Dance.

Strobe

Directed by Adam Berg, STROBE features stunt men and acrobatic performers in advanced LED light suits to tell the story of one man’s incredible journey across the Kuala Lumpur skyline at night.

The bespoke suits were conceived by Hollywood costume designer Vin Burnham and technical director Adam Wright — taking design cues from Lexus vehicles, including the iconic spindle grille and LED headlights.

A purpose built computer system and complex DMX software was created to wirelessly trigger the suits to strobe on demand, producing the breathtaking display seen in the film.

STROBE is the third in the Amazing in Motion project series by Lexus. Visit amazinginmotion.com to experience the full story behind STROBE and to see the other Amazing in Motion projects.

Tina Roth Eisenberg: 5 Rules for Making an Impact
from 99U

Tina Roth Eisenberg was chugging along in her career as a designer… and then her daughter was born. She realized she had not yet become the kind of woman she had hoped her children would know. She immediately delved into a career as a serial entrepreneur that now includes an impressive group of “labors of love.” In this talk she shares five rules that have helped her launch businesses like Creative Mornings, Tattly, and Studiomates, among others.

Each was a side project that stemmed from a personal frustration. “I have a rule: If I keep complaining about something, I either do something about it or let it go,” says Eisenberg. The result: a group of projects that reflect the values dear to Eisenberg, most importantly using business to positively impact the lives of others.

Whether it’s through having a confetti drawer, keeping sane hours, or building environments that cultivate enthusiasm, Eisenberg urges us all to judge our success with the happiness and personal growth of those around us. “While I really love my work, my work is not me,” she says.
