  • Real-time horror movie ‘Sickhouse’ scares on mobile using Snapchat, Vimeo

    Snapchat's a platform hosting a swathe of diverse content on the daily, so it seems fitting that a movie is made using it, right? Well, that's what Indigenous Media believes. The company's producing the "first-ever scripted film, shot in real time, designed for mobile viewing" called Sickhouse. And by that title alone, we're sure you can surmise that it's a horror.

  • Kung fu joins CG animation in the coolest thing we’ve seen today [video]

    Kung Fu is one of those mythical and extremely spiritual things that us human beings can do, along with singing in the shower, roughly kneading dough and creating gorgeous stop-motion computer-generated visualisations. It's the former and latter than come together in this frigidly cool video. Numbers-loving artist Tobias Gremmler decided to take the human (and very mathematically-based) motions of kung fu and translate that into a range of visualisations using a fabric-like sweep of pixels across the screen.

  • Four alternatives to YouTube for video marketing

    When it comes to video marketing, YouTube is usually the first video-sharing site that people think of when considering where to submit their video content. This isn’t surprising as YouTube is the undisputed leader in terms of audience reach, market share, and the volume of video content that is uploaded to it everyday. Ironically though, the site’s phenomenal success means that it is becoming increasingly hard to make your content stand out due to the large volumes of other content on every conceivable subject matter. Unless you hit the viral jackpot, which is tricky and unpredictable, you therefore may not...
