Sheep LED Art - Shepherding at a Whole New Level !!
« on: April 20, 2009, 10:09:40 pm »
"Samsung's latest commercial combines technology with animals. The production firm "took to the hills of Wales armed to the teeth with sheep, LEDs and a camera, to create a huge amazing LED display."

I guess this is the tech staff's documentary of their production. The OldWest typefaces and music in the beginning are funny, since it was shot in Wales!

 :laugh: Loved the video!

On a sidenote: what masters extraordinnaire those dogs are! I've been to a sheep dog demonstration once, man was I impressed. Maybe I should make my dog watch the video? Think he'll learn something from it? ;)

I saw something about this on TV the other day!  It was probably an MSNBC show or some other cable news show, but I forget which one.  Amazing!

Thanks for the fun video!!

I had the opportunity to watch the border collies in action when nakymaton invited me to her local sheepherding festival back in 2006. I could not get enuff of those lovable sheepdogs...or the sheepherders either!!

What an original commercial! Thank you.

One of my  neighbours has a border collie, when I drive past their house I always slow down as the dog will often run in front of my car and start moving fast from one side to the other.  As there are no sheep around here I have come to conclusion that he thinks cars are sheep and it is his duty to control them.
BbM, I swear

Throughout the video you can hear the wranglers whistling at the dogs, just like Ennis does in the film.

I love how at 2:08, the dog runs at the sheep in such a way as to scatter them in a fractal pattern, to look like a firework.
