You know that beast we all carry inside? Don’t you just wish you could unleash it sometimes? When someone insults a loved one, or when a client doesn’t pay like they promised, or when that rude BMW cuts you off at the lights – couldn’t he see you had the kids in the car! You know what I mean…
We all have moments when we dream of reacting in ways that would only get us into trouble, no matter how justified, and, well, turns out…there’s an app for that and it’s called Demon Cam. Silly, funny and sure to be part of many 2011 Halloween party invites!

I’ve been fortunate enough to have a front row seat to a few of these things, working with Nils Bjuggstam at Loveframe from my native Sweden, and this one I felt worth sharing since it made such a splash in the news and, well, simply because it’s pretty cool…
This is a pretty funny draft for a non smoking commercial, shot as part of the PS-CAM X35 camera test we shot a while back. God only knows why all these people agree to all this abuse!

“This piece was a fantastic byproduct of my high speed shoot with the P+S Technik PS-CAM X35 prototype camera. I shot the slo-mo punch on a green screen with the idea it would be a funny no smoking piece… Continue reading →
