I’ve been playing around with FakeApp, a clever bit of shareware that uses machine learning to do face swapping in videos. My own tests haven’t been too impressive (see below), so I need to play around a bit more with it. But deep learning is going to be playing an increasingly big role in visual effects and post production work. I’m excited by the new creative possibilities, not least that I can finally join the Rebel Alliance.

Delighted to have another laurel to the Doomsday Ready
poster thanks to the London Worldwide Comedy Short Festival. With our 16 minute running time we didn’t quite make it to the official selection. Which is quite understandable, they can schedule 4/5 other nice shorts with their respective audiences instead. But we do have ‘Bad Words’
being screened there so that will be fun.
I’ve been doing a lot of filming for various business clients lately. Here I have both my main 4K cameras; the Sony FS7 and A7S2 as a B-Cam. The images match up great in the edit, and a 2nd angle on an interview or event is always super handy.
The only issue with all that kit is carrying it around, so my fold-up trolley has been a life saver.
