"BLUR CUT" for ADRIAN

First, from the Effects tab, add Gaussian Blur, Defocus and Soft Focus to the two clips (you don't need to add all of them but I think the three of them make the smoothest blur). Then set the IandO points on the "Amount" and "Strength" like above. You want the blur to be maxed at the transition's in-point then down to zero once the transition is complete (and vice versa for the outgoing clip).
Overlap the two clips you want to blur into each other. Then make the opacity levels match the blur.

Hope that makes sense.

LES PETITS MOUCHOIRS QUI VOULAIENT VIVRE

For TIFF10 I was fortunate enough to work for Steve Rubin, VP of International Marketing @ EuropaCorp and all of the lovely people @ mPRm Public Relations. EuropaCorp featured two films in the festival: Les petits mouchoirs (Little White Lies) directed by Guillaume Canet (Tell No One, The Beach), starring Marion Cotillard and Gilles Lellouche; and L'homme qui voulait vivre sa vie (The Big Picture) directed by Eric Lartigau featuring Romain Duris (De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté), Branka Katic and Catherine Deneuve.

I managed to meet countless unbelievably talented directors, producers, actors/actresses, PR & marketing reps, etc.. My experiences with everyone were fantastic and at times surreal - from my first Red Carpet experience (for Les petits mouchoirs where the projector couldn't play the sous-titres, which was then followed by a very heart felt address by Guillaume) to champagne parties with Romain, Eric, Branka and Christophe Lambert, CEO of EuropaCorp, before the World Premiere of L'homme qui voulait vivre sa vie. I was also able to help on several red carpets including The Bang Bang Club starring Ryan Phillippe and Malin Åkerman.

Marion was voted Best Dressed by Toronto Life, and I may be a little bias, but she definitely deserves it - hands down - she is such a lovely person to be around, and always looked gorgeous (the inocent accent adds something as well)! On a side note, she was also recently on the cover of Vogue (US ad Paris).

I'm already dying to get to Paris, and now I have an excuse!

BEAUTIFUL


This video is a nicely constructed summation of my love of design. It's got it all: great typography, gorgeous old records (I love the added warmth and the wear n' tear), blues, jazz, Havana (Club), and a compelling and original visual aesthetic - beautifully remixing old ideas and images into something new.

SECRETS OF SECRETS

Kenneth Anger's work remains a visceral, timeless and mystical experience. Now in his eighties Anger's newest piece, a promotional video for Missoni's F/W 2010/11 campaign, is no different, continuing the tradition of experiential, avant-garde filmmaking. Referencing Thelemic, occult philosophies, images of mysticism, meditation and Magick are established through elaborate rituals and ceremonies dominated by the themes of colour and light.
