Introducing MuseMage to The Hidden

We proudly announce  that a few days ago, WinterHouse International and Chengdu Paraken Technology reached an agreement to introduce the MuseMage App in The Hidden.

Some scenes in The Hidden, the movie produced by WinterHouse International, will be recorded with MuseMage, a revolutionary video App for iPhone or iPad very popular in North America and Asia, MuseMage is capable of recording and video editing in real-time.

MuseMage is currently the best tool to record, edit, coloring and apply special effects from the phone while we record, which multiplies our possibilities to experience visually, and in real time, during the production of The Hidden.

Our visual experience with MuseMage is scheduled for the second half of this year and will complement to the footage already carried out in the United States, Argentina and Peru. The Hidden will be released in festivals on 2016.

Additionally we will offer a report on our experiences recording with MuseMage, this will be presented to the general public as a guide in four videos through our official website, Youtube, Facebook and other media.
The content of those episodes will help young videographers and independent filmmakers to know how MuseMage can be exploited creatively on their next projects.
Thanks to the people who contacted us and collaborated during the conversations with MuseMage in China and New York. Congratulations on this extraordinary App.

George Curtis Van Liew

My Name is George Curtis Van Liew, from the U.S.A.

I am a watercolor artist and teacher. I have been painting since I was 9 years old. I teach 50+ students each week art and music. 

Mikela Bond

Hello Everyone!  My name is Mikela Bond and I am from California, USA.  

When it comes to art, my absolute favorite medium is watercolors, and I'm a huge fan of vibrant, edgy, psychedelic, and surrealistic art. Nature is my main inspiration, and I enjoy putting my own twist on it (with micro brushes, of course!).

I have spent the majority of my adult life traveling the world and developing my craft as an artist and entertainer.  You can find my murals, theatrical backdrops, and original paintings in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.   

This is my first ever stop motion/time lapse video of my watercolor painting Aloha Mandala from start to finish.  I hope you enjoy it!

Chungkong Volkswagen

Hi, I'm Chungkong and just wanted to drop you images of this project.
Volkswagen T1 superhero rides

Superman is fortunate. He can fly without the need of any kind of vehicle. Other superheroes aren't quite as lucky, having spent their childhoods as mere mortals before getting a spider bite or having their parents murdered. Most of them required something a little extra to transport them around the world.

And let's be honest, there are some awesome rides around in the superhero universe. But what if their rides weren't as cool like the Christian Bale Batmobile or the kickass Mark 3 Iron Man Suit, what if their rides were ragged T1 Volkswagen Vans…

Take look at my superhero cars mashup, think of them as some sort of my first super ride.
Hope you enjoy this, best from a cold but slightly sunny Amsterdam.


Achraf Baznani

My name is Achraf Baznani, Moroccan photographer and filmmaker
Born in Marrakesh, I'm honored to be featured in your excellent magazine.

This is a short review of my work, hope you like it:
Achraf Baznani carries on the traditions of Surrealism with his wild, imaginative, and wholly impractical imagery. Among his inventive scenarios, small human figures -often the artist himself- appear trapped within glass jars or the size of a camera lens; in other works, Baznani more or less dissects his body, as for example, in one, he cleanly removes his brain from his cranium, or in another, twists off his hand, much as if it were a light bulb. Imparted throughout such works are strong senses of humor and wonder, and as such, Baznani's art offers a Surrealistic take on life experience in the digital age.
A self-taught artist, Baznani has no formal photography education.
​He published the first surreal photobook in the arab world called "Inside my dreams". ​
He lives and works in Morocco.

Conceptual photography is, first and foremost, about the concept of the photo. A conceptual photographer is trying to bring some message about to the viewer, be it a political advert or a social commentary or an emotional outcry. There is some level of abstraction, thus, in my works: the image is not an explicit example of the concept, but a general expression of the idea.
Conceptual photography makes healthy use of graphical symbols to represent ideas, movements, moods, anything and everything that the photographer might want to include in the message of their photograph. 
For my works, there are a variety of ways a concept falls into place, most often it starts with a spark of inspiration and grows from there, whether it is a person, design, story that needs to be told, regardless, it all starts with a single point. From there it becomes simple problem solving. 

I don't spend very much time looking at what other people are doing. I like to stay aware and connected to what others are doing by following sites such as Flickr.. but beyond that, I spend the rest of my time meeting people, creating, and really just living life. I think the best way to being inspired is not to just try to emulate others, but to find what inspires you in life and trying to capture and share it. 
I use Photoshop and Lightroom. I use Lightroom to correct and change the colorimetry pictures. Then I go on to the most important Photoshop retouching. To learn how to master these tools, I spent hours in front of my computer to study the tutorials available on the Internet.

"Inside my dreams" (ISBN: 978-1502856586)

Brendan Sheridan

I am a photographer from Ireland  and this edit is from my "Out Foreign" project. 
A collection of images from my inteactions in various countries.

My photographs are marked by a strong aesthetic that bend and distort reality.The images frequently play on the banality of a situation and a feeling of strangeness that emerges from a particular choice of timing and framing.
For me, photography is a game. A game where the rules aren't always that clear and thats what makes it so exciting for me. It's a game that invites me to play, to try figure out the rules and to be constantly surprised from it.

Christina Massey

Christina Massey, U.S.A.

I am a painter, fiber and installation artist.  Using methods of constructing and deconstructing, I am constantly re-using and re-purposing my own artwork. 

One series literally leads to another, where previous series of works are cut, torn and sewn or woven back together again into new series of works, which may again be reconstructed into yet another art form.  

The past always present in the current and future works, they tell a story of my progression as an Artist.

Six images are attached for your consideration.  These are from a series titled "Stripes Earned."  Each is titled after a particular expectation or goal an artist is "supposed" to achieve or experience during their career.

02: Stripes Earned: Museum Collection, Mixed Media, 40" x 46", 2014
