Demonstration of waking hypnosis also known as suggestibility tests. Such as forgetting or mixing up a number. I test a person with some foolproof methods such as magnetic hands come together and with direct and optional suggestions. You can actually see that the person exits "trance" because I hypnotized her by merely speaking and focusing her attention on my eyes and slowly entering a trance myself.

Using NLP eye access cues and muscle reading (Hellstromism) to divine an American symbol. Certain buildings, people and monuments invoke emotions, these emotions trigger ideomotor muscle reflexes. A little verbal probing also gets you a long way.

Here I give a demonstration during my hypnosis course of waking hypnosis suggesting that you do not need to induce trance. Most of my demonstration like: people falling back as if they were pulled by an unforeseen force, buggling through their knees, hands, feet and knees stuck to the floor with waking hypnosis. Today I used James Tripp's method after seeing some footage from his brilliant DVD. His approach is even more careful than mine and thus ideal for someone who's knew to it. When I saw the footage of James' brilliant DVD I noticed many smart language patterns and usage of psychology. So there it is proof that you do not need a long winding induction process. I have been mixing waking hypnosis (as I like to call it) in my mentalism which makes it much more interesting.

Demonstration of hypnosis to a girl who wanted to experience it. I used the altered state and the conscious mind to anchor relaxation and making well thought through decisions when she would feel out of control. This is some NLP combined with hypnosis. I used a hand stuck to leg suggestion to proof that something did happen, because too often people think that nothing happened since you remain in control even under hypnosis

A psychological number force like Derren Brown. This is the second attempt, I always do it initially without a trance like state but it didn't work the first time. Simply because I never had met Shawn before and we caught him off guard at his place of work to perform a few sleight of hand effects for us. I therefore needed to result to an unannounced, stone cold induction on the subject, because he is skeptical about hypnosis, was probably not willing to be hypnotized at his place of work.

My own rendition of the Airwolf theme mainly based around my own sounds on the superb analog DeepMind12 synth. All instruments with the exception of the drums are my own patches. I used a JP-08 (strings) and Mini Moog from the Arturia classic Synth suite for low part of the base line. The main Midi controller is my Yamaha 88; although that quick bass part was played on the DeepMind because the piano action was too heavy for me to play this and I even had it tweaked and quantized in FL. But all the parts are played by me and from memory, I only later listened to the original them(s); which I found out are 3 different themes for each season. As a kid there were 3 shows I actually stayed home for: Knight Rider, MacGyver and Airwolf.

HDRi's are ideal to light your CG scenes, especially for VFX. The last 2 years I mainly used my Xiaomi and Insta360 One. But now the Insta360 One X is here with even better images. So time to compare renders that are lid by a set of manually created: RAW bracketed shots, JPEG bracketed shots and the in camera HDR. Spoiler: The Insta 360 One X is THE BEST 360 camera under $500 that I worked with. Here are the HDRi's and the images I have created so you can pixel peep as well. https://www.subliminal-artist.com/assets/insta360onex_hdri_test.zip https://www.subliminal-artist.com https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9415167/

A small tribute to my youth. I always loved this show, my brother and I used to watch it. But the theme always lacked a bit in the guitar department, so I added some guitar with a bitchin' solo (and of course a harmony) and some extra synths.

NOTICE: I realized after looking at the code that the Greater Than operation returns true (as I started to suspect) when the value is greater than the set RGB value. So you will already key a hard key without using the curves to gain op de matte. This makes it easier and it's ideal for a core matte, Another tool in your Blender, Green screen keying toolbox. We explore the difference keying concept. Which can be combined with the core and edge matte tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWm94MjS880 Subliminal Artist Productions https://www.subliminal-artist.com IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9415167/

A personal rendition of the movie theme of the 1976 classic Assault on Precinct 13. The original score was done by John Carpenter. All the sound patches with the exception of the drums were designed/programmed by me. I used my DeepMind 12 for the strings, Moog Mini vst from Aturia, EZ-Drummer 2 for the drums. My aim in this score was to emphasize the drama and anguish. Unlike in the original score where the theme is sort of the engine of the action with that classic bassline.

A little jamming during a hot summer afternoon. I guess I had already been playing for about an hour and was soaked. You gotta love Dutch summers with a humidity pushing 90% So I decided to make a little video of this particular song because it had the word rain it so I could hide the sweating with simulated rain :) And it gave me an excuse to play with the new Keying software and the Looks software. So I plunked down the fold-able green screen and played it once more. You may see my guitar disappear a little at one point. The whole thing was drawn, edited and composited in about 4 hours and another 1.5 hours for rendering. This was shot in day light conditions! I am playing my 1995 Fender Std USA Strat. Fender Mustang III amp (Fender Twin Reverb Deluxe model)

A back plate for another upcoming music cover. Highway to Hell. All I need to do is setup my green screen *sigh* and film myself as a movie asset that will be dropped in the lower left corner playing guitar, whilst AC/DC is seen playing on the JumboTron. I wanted a border line comic/surreal yet with elements of reality in it. Much like AC/DC's music it's all done with a wink but there are some real dramatic things in there. I tried to find that blend. It's very easy to make it look very realistic and scary and dark but I found I actually needed to really digitally paint the far background to get a bit of that "comic" not to "serious" AC/DC feel to it. The whole backplate is actually a still imaged I made up solely out of 2D elements, in Photoshop. The heat movement and the lava movement is done in After Effects.

A tribute to one of the best series of the past 10 years. An all acoustic version of the awesome theme song of game of thrones arranged and played by myself in about 50 minutes. All the visual effects, recording and edit were done in about 24 hours. CG components (Banner, Curtain, Sky Cells) are done in Blender, Maya and Cinema 4D. Matte Painting in Second shot is from someone else I found it online and I can't find the person's name who created this awesome fan-art. I liked it so much that I converted it into a 2.5D projected image. I did the snow addition on the matte painting of the snowy version of Winterfeld and the Sky Cells is a compilation from the actual filmset prop cell and hand painted snow. I made 4 cells in PhotoShop and projection mapped the cell on to 3D geometry so I could fit the background plate of me playing in there.

Another 24 hour video challenge with VFX music video, this too more like 30 hours not counting rendering times. Special thanks to Pesho for the 3D bear. Loving Cup has always been this strange 'iffy' kind of song, with a gay suggestive undertone. So I made it more cheeky in a "Brokeback Mountain/American Beauty", funny suggestive way to demonstrate pro-gay rights. A "bear" in the LGBT scene is a hairy strong gay-man. (Thanks to Tyler Oakley's dictionary) So the bear in this video is a sort of a proxy for a gay-hairy strong man. I am pro-gay rights and this video hopefully shows in a non-sexually intrusive manner that 2 people of the same sex can be perfectly happy together. Everything is played and sung by me (I am no singer AT ALL!) but I tried it anyways. Rendering took a great deal of time and was obviously not done within 24 hours. This was also my first time working with character animation (the utmost respect for people who do this for a living! WHAT A TEDIOUS JOB!)

Here I take a simple card trick (transposing aces) and tell the story that poker players can actually feel the weight of a card. I then ask the person to imagine he's a poker player and he can actually tune his arm into a fine scale. And I suggest the arm dropping down, you see the arm actually going down. Then I ask him to imagine that the cards he's holding are red and red cards are lighter than the black cards so the scale goes up. His arm surely enough goes up. This is ideal for magicians to covertly test a person for suggestibility without suddenly having to change from magic to hypnosis. It's also ideal for newbies to hypnosis you can show a simple card trick and yet do a great deal of hypnotic testing in the safe knowledge that your card trick is there to cover you in case of a small problem

Inspired by the great Javier (RollingBilbao). I guess I am one of those typical neighbours that Mick Jagger is singing about. Playing guitar (loud), all sorts of crazy massive projects in and around our apartment block. Therefore I thought it was appropriate to cover this song and do a 24 hours self-challenge in which I explore a single shot video. Music was recorded on a ZOOM R24 multitrack. 3 different guitar tracks were added, 2 continuous rhythm tracks and a lead. Guitar parts were played on my own home build Telecaster build from Warmoth parts.
