Apple's Perspective Video

While this video from Apple is probably a tad bit too long, it does feature some pretty good anamorphic optical illusion tricks.  The video is captured from a single camera moving around a sterile white room in what appears to be a single take.  The style of this commercial is reminiscent of Ok Go’s recent […]

Tron Optical Illusion

It took Brusspup about 10 hours to create this anamorphic optical illusion paying homage to the 1982 movie Tron.  He describes the process of taping the Christmas lights to the wall as “painstaking” as they kept falling off.  Thankfully, he was patient enough to see it through to completion.  When discussing the illusion, he offers […]
