Hey dragi cititori,

Azi am avut o zi mai ,,depresivă” decât de obicei. Stați liniștiți nu s-a întâmplat nimic. Citesc doar o carte, pe care nu o mai pot lăsă jos din mână – ,, Fata din tren” de Paula Hawkins- și mă face puțin mai tristă pentru că e chiar bună. (Fun fact: tipa ce mi-a recomandat-o se numește tot Paula, Paula Rucoi de fapt și stă în Italia – cu ocazia asta te salut, dragă Paula și să știi că ne lipsești).

Mă rog, hai să trecem la subiect. Fiind super preocupată de această carte, pentru că am ajuns să mă pun în pielea personajelor, am primit un  mesaj random pe Messenger de la unul dintre cei mai buni prieteni ai mei…și mi-a făcut ziua mai frumoasă. Ghiciți ce? Am un amic ce s-a apucat de vlogging. Ce pot să spun? Am numai prieteni faini cu idei extrem de creative. Îl cheamă Victor Antal și are 19 ani (În caz că vă întrebați ce-i cu poza, da el e în poză). Nu vreau să dau prea multe detalii, pentru că noul său vlog va vorbi de la sine. Am văzut primul episod, să zic așa…și mi se pare că e fun, te ține în suspans și prezintă puțin din Sighișoara, orașul meu natal pe care îl iubesc foarte mult. Ce pot să vă mai zic? Aș putea face aici ditamai reclama, de zici că mă specializez în promovare de content, dar prefer să păstrez articolul cât mai scurt ca să nu se piardă din mister.

Vă postez aici videolipul. Dacă vă place, dați un like, share și subscribe. Să aveți cu toții o zi frumoasă.

Cu drag,

Mădă

A piece of heaven (Rewritten)

11947985_921260911300211_677614949141906661_o‘Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.’-Swami Sivananda

Today I want to do something unique, showing you how a phoenix can come alive from an eternal fire. Metaphorically, of course. In fact, this is all about my hometown. You know what they often say ‘home sweet home’ or ‘home is not a place, but a feeling’. I must admit that this is entirely true for me. I can’t help but fall in love with this town because of the memories which are carved on every piece of concrete that I walk on and the history well-kept inside its “walls”. I see it as a place of fairy tales coming to life. So, let’s see how an idea, coming out of nothing can materialise and touch people’s hearts, because my friends definitely know how to leave a mark imprinted on one’s soul. I questioned them in order to find answers regarding this time-lapse, which I call ‘a piece of heaven’. I would sum up in a few words what they said about it: This video is a unique time-lapse , which tries to show the beauty of Sighisoara’ s Citadel in a different light.The video begins suddenly with the statue of Vlad the Impaler known as Dracula, who is a symbol of Transylvania. The blue sky with white clouds, revealing the innocence of nature fits perfectly with the statue and the dramatic effect chosen. Sighisoara appears as a land of mystery, waiting to be discovered. The music shows the true essence of the time-lapse. It is gradual like the whole video: sometimes peaceful, sometimes powerful. The idea of ‘going forward’, closer, to the tourist attractions is engaging, having a captivating effect on the viewer. I strongly believe that he feels like he is actually there, not watching a video on Youtube. Another thing, which left me in ‘awe’ was the combination of the static, unmoving buildings with the rush of people, coming and going. I feel that it presents life itself and the fact that we should pay more attention to the details. Different from the existent time lapses of Sighisoara, this one uses innovations of hyperlapse, but also combines natural landscapes with the historical sites.The result: a medieval trip in the heart of Transylvania where vampires are actually real (or not), where the buildings keep scars from the historic events carved on them and where tourists are actually left speechless. In the end, there is an image of the Clock Tower, another symbol of Sighisoara, chosen wisely to show again, for the last time,our little piece of heaven.A dramatic effect covers the whole scenery, leaving you breathless, but eager to see this bittersweet town. You might think that this great video was filmed with a DSLR, but guess what?It was actually filmed with a phone: Htc Desire 600.Unbelievable! So much beauty, only one phone. The effects were made with the following programs: Lapse it, Vegas Pro 12, Sony Vegas Full of happiness to tell me about this they also have a message for the ones viewing the time-lapse: “Like, share and subscribe keeps the internet alive.So, like , share and subscribe.” My friends worked very hard to make this idea become reality. I am sure they left a piece of their heart in this video, which is the reason why I called it ‘a piece of heaven’. Their kindness, dedication, creativity and love is well-reflected in the time-lapse, so I hope you will take a few minutes to see the soul of two of the most beautiful people I’ve been blessed to meet. With no further details I present you this amazing video.Enjoy 🙂

Wish you were there

Who said fairy tales are dead? I can assure you they aren’t. But what do we all love about these stories? I believe they tell us the truth, that the world is a magical place, full of happy endings and wonders. Why did we forget about this once we grow up?

Certainly, some of my friends didn’t. They made a video related to fairy tales where children have the power to bring their favourite characters  to the real world. I hope I caught your attention, now let’s start from the beginning.

Four main characters, Flynn Rider from Tangled, Red Riding Hood, Alice, the hunter, a magical book, some children and a pretty sleepy grandpa. That’s how it all started. Flynn stole a special artifact that was meant to hold the fairytale world together. This, and the children’s wish to bring Alice, Flynn and Red Riding Hood to our world. The background is so enchanted, the effects fit perfectly each scene and they are well placed to show the wonderful world of fairy tales.

Unfortunately, the stolen artifact attracts a hunter from another dimension who wants to catch Flynn. They all run and when Alice discovers what Flynn did….plot twist. The children change the main story. This is how we are shown how special the book is. The story is changed plenty of times until the grandpa falls asleep. The kids are too curious, destroying the book, and the characters have to face their own faith…

Sorry to spoil the story, but I felt it needed explaining.

In my opinion, it is worth watching. It pictures unexpected turns of events and even the innocence of childhood. The magic of that age, the bliss, the beauty and the fights. It’s like a black & white of childhood if you look close enough. Furthermore, the other part is about the special book, which takes us into the fairytale world, where we can float high to the sky and enjoy the story of our four main characters: Flynn, Alice, Red Riding Hood and the hunter. Of course, with its twists and turns, but beautiful compelling scenery. It also gives us a feeling of joy and bounds us to reminisce about the lost times of childhood.

All of this was filmed in 3 days with Nikon Coolpix P500, edited with Sony Vegas Pro 12. For effects, the application used is called FixGuru. Also, my friends encourage everybody to give them a feedback regarding their work. Nobody is perfect, the goal is to grow together. If you are interested in their further projects, make sure to subscribe. Feel free to check their other videos if you want.

Here it goes, I hope you enjoy it, because I did:

 

A piece of heaven

Hey, guys.Today I wanted to do something different so I thought that it was a good idea to share with you something that my friends did because they are very smart and creative people.It is actually something about my hometown.You know what they say ” Home sweet home”, right?I can’t help but fall in love with this town because of the memories which are carved on every piece of the concrete that I walk on and the history well kept inside its “walls”. I see it as a place of fairytales coming to life.
This is what I found out when I questioned my amazing friends:
This video is a unique time lapse which tries to show the beauty of Sighisoara’ s Citadel, the heart of our town.The video begins, of course, with the statue of Vlad the Impaler known as Dracula, whom is a symbol of Transylvania.Not only that, but the beginning effect is dramatic, mysterious and the sky effect following after the statue sets an atmosphere of harmony from the very beginning.The music is synchronized perfectly with these effects, making every frame seem so peaceful and full of life at the same time.Different from the existent time lapses of Sighisoara, this one uses innovations of hyperlapse, but also combines nature’s beauty with the medieval style of the town.The result: a medieval trip in the heart of Transylvania where vampires are actually real (or not), where the buildings keep scars from the historic events carved on them and where tourist are actually amazed by this town as much as we are.
In the end, there is an image of the Clock Tower, another symbol of Sighisoara, chosen wisely to show again, for the last time,our little piece of heaven.A dramatic effect covers the whole scenery, leaving you breathless, but eager to see this bittersweet town.
You might think that this great video was filmed with a DSLR, but guess what?It was actually filmed with a phone: Htc Desire 600.Unbelievable!So much beauty, onely one phone.
The effects were made with the following programs: Lapse it, Vegas Pro 12, Sony Vegas HD Movie Studio 11, Adobe After Effects CS 6.
My friends are very creative people and they worked very hard to make this idea come to life.Special thanks to them for making such an amazing job.This video for sure won’t go unnoticed.It still seems too good to be true.
Full of happiness to tell me about this they also have a message for the ones viewing the time lapse: “Like, share and subscribe keeps the internet alive.So,like , share and subscribe.”
