The awesomeness of mirrored videos

Towards the end of last year you might’ve stumbled across the gorgeous mirrored video of a drive through Chicago by Craig Shimala. As the dude said himself, applying a mirror effect to the video made it feel as if it were a mashup of the Jetsons, the flying car scene in Back To The Future 2, and a gamut of sci-fi films. (If you’re interested, he shot it on a GoPro Hero camera and edited it using Sony’s Vegas Movie Studio software.)

It’s crazy how a simple mirror filter can transform a video into something else. from Craig Shimala on Vimeo.

If you liked this one, you might also enjoy this awesome mirrored video of Tokyo’s night sky, which was filmed from the city’s monorail by cat2525jp.

I’m not quite sure if anything quite so awesome could be filmed on London’s DLR, but it might be worth having a go!
