ENCORE EPISODE – Originally Aired July 01, 2011
I have such a special treat for you today! BreakThru Radio is running Animation Week, with content based around the culture and creation of graphic animation and cartoons. So I thought it would be fun to chat with two of the hottest photographers on the web right now, who are creating massive buzz with their “cinemagraphs,” which are, essentially, animated photographs.
Jamie Beck is a fashion photographer, and her fiance Kevin Burg is a visual designer and computer whiz. The two pooled their talents, resources, and ingenuity to create this incredible, unique process. On today’s show they’ll share about how cinemagraphs began, their future plans for the new form, and Jamie will talk about her experiences in fashion photography (including a day behind the scenes at Oscar de la Renta!)
Plus, as always, great new music today that includes fresh-off-the-press releases from Handsome Furs, Bobby, John Maus, Vetiver, and, of course, Bon Iver. So crank that volume up and enjoy today’s fashion feature here on BreakThru Radio!
