Blue Hippy Cats Avatar Review

Looks like our friends Corve and Jordasche have some competition in the movie reviewing business.

This video by what seems to be one kid using motion capture imaging software (much like what was used in the real Avatar) is making the rounds on YouTube. No way this was one guy doing this but I can see the technology being there soon where people could make their own Avatar in the comfort of their living room. But I am sure before we consumers get use of the technology some porn director will make a real “Blue Movie” using it.

    this is soooo cool… i wish i knew how to do that stuff!!!!

    • Me too. One of my first jobs was doing video editing via a mac. That system cost something like $40,000. Now the program I bought to edit my home videos is more powerful and cheap. Time will tell.

  2. One of my first thoughts in that movie was that the industry has found a way to have realistic characters perform physical acts that real performers can’t, both due to simple physical restrictions and safety regulation restrictions. Now that you mention the possibility of the technology being used by porn, I can’t help but think about the films that will be produced that would be illegal if the performers in them were real.

  3. Well at least with the new technology there is some chance you can have decent friggin fingers and fringes !!!

  4. I have a 1 GB PC, so I’m sure I have the capability to make these kind of videos.

    I suppose I should watch Avatar first though to see exactly what he’s talking about.

  5. Wow this is impressive. Avatar was really a home run for special effects. Directors have been talking about life-like CGI ever since Episode I (which I really didn’t like), but Avatar is the first movie where I walked away thinking “Wait, that was all CGI, right?” Good stuff.

  6. All this new technology is great but they always come out with new stuff before I understand the old stuff and then I want the new stuff so I never really learn how to use any of it. I hope I didn’t confuse y’all as much as I confused myself.

  7. Great blip. Talented dude, to say the least. I’ve seen Avatar twice, and enjoyed it to no end.

  8. i am already seeing this sort of thing in various webcam applications. i bought a vaio notebook recently and the webcam installed has settings for visual effects that allow you to use different avatars.

  9. Lol, yeah a ‘blue movie’ with that would be funny! :P

  10. This is pretty neat! I’m trying to learn everything I can about incorporating movie-making and graphic software. New stuff comes out way before I even learn the older material. I’ll never catch up. :)

  11. Cool video. Keeping up with technology is getting harder as I get older. I am still learning the basics of PhotoShop…two versions ago!!

  12. The dude that made Sky Captain and the world of tomorrow did it all in his basement with computers. His demos were so good that he got Paltrow, Jolie and Judd to play the entire movie on blue screen.

    I think eventually we will be able to make them, but that by that time, major producers will be doing something else. I can picture my children making a movie like Avatar and having the grandkids saying: “I don’t like your movies because I can’t smell the ocean and feel the wind when I am seeing it…”

    Yes. By the time you and I get into making what they are making now, they will have added new features to their wares. Taste, smell and touch will be standard features, although at first you will have to pay extra for them, like 3-D glasses.

    And about porn, if it’s illegal for real actors, you can bet that they will make it illegal for cgi as well. All they have to add is “or any likeness thereof” to the language of the law.

    I’d say the best application for porn will be immersive virtual reality.

    • And btw, my apologies for the long post.

      • Never apologize for long posts. Unless they aren’t relevant. haha

        What is funny is that they were doing 3D and Smellovision in movie theaters in the 50’s. Someone tried to revive it with a movie in the late 80s where you went in the theater and they gave you a scratch and sniff card with 10 different scents. When a number popped up on the screen you were supposed to scratch the corresponding spot. When a guy took his shoes off the entire audience screamed at each other not to scratch the spot.

  13. Jesus…what an odd looking fellow. Maybe I could use that technology to make me look like Douglas Fairbanks!

  15. I never thought of them using that for porn. Leave it to your blog to point that out. I stop in to say hi and this is what I see… I love being back. Thanks for making me feel right at home. So when are you going to make a Bearman book so I can sell it in my store?

  16. Everything that he said he disliked is what MADE THE STORY GOOD.

  17. from a technology standpoint this is cool- i guess, but it’s scary to me…. weird weird weird weird….
