Smashcut directed this 28-second video, which he calls Toy-town TV-Tower, using fake tilt-shift effects. When asked how he managed to conceal this fantastic snow world behind glass, he answered:
just messing around with masking etc. in After Effects with a bit of extra CC in Photoshop
I am thinking about looping these 28-seconds and projecting them onto my wall, the accordion music accompanying the arthritic crank of the camera. Each time the TV-Tower wobbles near the end, I imagine the snow globe in my hand being shaken. In this way, winter rains perpetually over this miniature landscape.
