the iPad and Velcro – as well as the idea of a “moving portrait”

Two of mankind’s greatest inventions, together at last. Note: this is an exploration of what is possible, not necessarily what is practical. Tweet from the street at your own risk!

And, imagine where this is going by the way… you see the shot where they velcro the iPad to the wall. Now imagine doing a ‘living portrait’ — instead of a still photo, you take a short 20-30 second video of a person… this could really catch on!

I have a friend, David Harry Stewart who has a couple of moving photographs on his site that he did back in 2009, so it isn’t a new idea, but with the advent of devices like the iPad that can show off movies, maybe the idea of a moving portrait will take off! Here’s one of David’s that I really like:

Additional Alexx Henry digital moving magazine samples

We highlighted Alexx Henry the other day, well, we’ve found two more of his video demos with an iPad outline that we thought you’d like to see.

VIV Mag Motion Cover – iPad Demo from Alexx Henry on Vimeo.

Together with co-director Cory Strassburger and Ming Hsiung, we produced a motion magazine cover and feature spread for Viv Mag – an all digital magazine, which would allow us to create content that will be able to live on the iPad and other tablet devices where digital magazines can live.
