Giant spider attack

by Matthew Cobb

This appears to be some kind of art project… Cool for Hallowe’en. Not sure the spiders are happy, though.

    Nice! That isn’t the original version & perhaps wasn’t approved by the ‘author’. I think this is the original HERE

    The original is longer & gives more away about how it was done.

    The ‘author’ does leave this comment on the shorter mirror video though:-

    “hey, glad you people like the video man! :)

    actually its pretty simple. The most important thing is to film it from exactly the same angle you later want the viewer to see the effect from. There are 5 projectors used, with a special kind of curtain behind the windows. so later on you split the video to fit to all of the 5 projectors and you get the right look from this one angle. But of course its a little more tricky than i said, but thats the main thing :) hope you got it?”

    I was gonna say – this looks like the perspective would work from only that one viewing location.

      I was thinking the same.

      However, I think you could also get a more universal perspective that would be effective if you were to simulate shadows that the spiders cast on Japanese-style rice-paper walls. Put a light source in the middle of the spider’s box, put tissue on the box’s sides, and film each window (simultaneously) with a different camera square on to the window.
