Augmented Reality, or Augdemented Reality as this video is called is very, very cool. A cartoon artist takes clear cellophane rectangles, draws on them and uses stop motion editing to create fun, cool and crazy scenes in what would normally be everyday, normal situations.
According to the Youtube about section: Using a unique animation technique involving traditional animation cells and his iphone 5s, Hombre_mcsteez turns everyday life into an odd creature infested cartoon universe.
It's crazy that someone with a few clear pieces of cellophane, an iPhone 5 and a fair bit of time on his hands can create these magical little worlds and scenes. I'm not sure if this augmented reality (or augdemented reality, I'm not even sure what I should be calling this video) is a new thing, an old thing or what. But it's pretty cool. I can't imagine this doesn't take forever to create. It's just one guy, his iphone and cut after cut after cut. It must take hours to create this augmented reality videos. It's sort of like a one man Pixar. Come to think of it, Pixar should hire this guy. Just give him a year and he'll create the next Finding Nemo. Great job, Hombre_mcsteez whoever you are.
