4 Things You Can Learn from How Scorsese Directed 'Taxi Driver'

Martin Scorsese knew he had something special when he read Paul Schrader’s “Taxi Driver” script. So, how did he direct it so masterfully? And what can he teach you?

Martin Scorsese is one of our most heralded living directors. He’s been creating films since the late 1960s, but really broke out after 1976’s Taxi Driver. It was an angry movie about trying to cleanse society and the angst of a young man. It was a breakout hit and has since been talked about as one of the greatest directorial achievements of all time.

In this video, The Director’s Cut culls interviews Scorsese has given over the years to find some of his best insight into what it took to direct the 70s classic. Check it out below, and then let’s get into our favorite tips afterward.

Nikon Set to Announce Development of D6 DSLR Soon

The official debut is likely to be in early 2020.

Like film, it looks like the demise of the DSLR has been premature. Already Canon is forging ahead with new DSLR models, and now it looks like Nikon will be doing the same with what looks to be the development of the next generation of their flagship professional D series…the Nikon D6.

But what can the DSLR do that isn’t already being handled with the mirrorless revolution?

The news was dropped by camera rumor tweet master Nokishita-C, which states that a development announcement for the Nikon D6 will occur on September 4th. Nokishita does have a decent track record with leak accuracy, so they may be something to it.

The tweet translates to: “It seems that Nikon will make some announcements about “D6” on September 4.”

The Insta360 GO Is Basically a Super Portable '20-Gram Steadicam'

Insta360, best known for their 360° cameras, has come out with GO, a super tiny, flat action camera.

Insta360 is likely on the hunt for a new name as they have come out with a new “flat” camera, the GO, which only shoots flat footage. And the company isn’t jumping into the crowded action cam market with nothing new to offer; they’ve taken the tech they developed to build their class-leading units like the Titan and built the world’s smallest stabilized camera,

Nicknamed the “20-gram Steadicam” (it’s actually even lighter than that at only 18.3 grams), the GO has some cool features other than its FlowState Stabilization tech. It can shoot 100fps bursts, HD video (2720×2720@25fps), Slow Mo, Timelapse, and Hyperlapse, and can be mounted just about anywhere.

Fun-loving vector graphics on punk, robots, and madness!AoiroStudioAug 29, 2019

I would like to share the work of Artem Solop who is an art director where’s work are quite loving where pop culture is the main characters of his art. Having grown into this culture and it’s nice seeing Artem bringing it up with flair, style though vector graphics filled with punk, robots and pure loving madness. There so much attention and details, you just can’t look overlooked on appreciating each one of the pieces. Let’s hope you will dig it too.

I’m slowly abandoning pure vector graphics concept in 2018 by adding noise and textures.

Facebook AR Concept – Interaction Design

Facebook AR Concept – Interaction DesignAoiroStudioAug 27, 2019

Product designer Moe Slah have shared with us a concept for Facebook AR. Moe is doing an excellent job at creating these concepts especially in a way to bring ideas and experiments together. Starting off with the branding with an interesting logo concept and cheers on pulling its multiple use cases. The overall design is very similar to the current Facebook UI but what’s great is Moe’s take on the AR itself, it kinds of reminds me of what Google is doing right now with AR mode in Google Maps.
