Another Monday is here, and that can only mean that it's time for the Weekly Recap. If you can't make the time to visit the BOKEHinc as often as you'd like, this post is for you. Every Monday, we rundown all the posts we featured in the last week on BOKEHinc. Be sure to check them all out and start your week off with a creative bang.
What goes behind the creation of a commercial? Short answer: a lot! Take a look at this behind-the-scenes video of a recent Fiat ad. You may want to get comfortable, as this 30-minute video sums up five months of post production that may not be for the weak willed. Enjoy this video in it's entirety, and the next time you see an ad on television, try to figure out what went into its creation.
Stop what you are doing and look at this gallery. Go ahead, I'll wait. Back? What you just witnessed was the phenomenal workings of Jee Young Lee entitled, Stage of Mind. The entire series took months to create and share on common theme: they were all photographed in the same room. So, the next time you're in your makeshift studio and wondering what you can do next, keep in mind that your next great work of art may take more than a few nights to pull together.
Anyone close to me has often heard about my addiction to a biphasic sleep cycle. I am one of those people that sleep for a few hours, wake up and do some work, and then go back to sleep again for a couple hours more. On average, I land 5 to 6 hours of solid sleep a night. I've been doing this for the better part of a year now, without any noticeable detriment to my health. With this rhythm, I get an extra month of useable time a year compared to a person that sleeps 8 hours a night. That a lot of extra fucking time!
There are many people that will even push their sleep periods down to 4 hours a night. This technique is only possible by breaking your sleep into short periods of quality sleep. It's all about attaining a great quality of sleep, as opposed to sheer quantity. This article by Andrew Torba, writing for Medium, talks about polyphasic sleep cycles and its effectiveness. It's a good primer if you're interested in freeing up more of your time.
