Creativity The Ditology Way!

ditology, dito, kiss
Creativity can start from anywhere, at times, it just at your finger tips, literally. Today, I am going to share an amazing creativity that literally done with the finger tips. 

The site is called Ditology. Ditology is an expansion from the word "Dito" which means finger in Italian. The founder of Ditology is a 33-year-old Italian art director and what he did is creating portraits of famous people on finger tips. Yes, you read that right. 

How he did it? He simply takes a picture of his finger and creates portraits of celebrities, historical figures or fictional characters with the help of Photoshop. Following are small samples of his amazing creativity. For the complete collection of his Ditos, check out his site at Ditology.

TaiChi 0 - An extraordinary And Refreshing Kungfu Movie

taichi 0, movie
Warning: TaiChi 0 (TaiChi Zero) is not your usual rigid and serious kind of kungfu movie. It’s a kungfu movie with lots of fresh elements incorporated into it. Just like what the director, Stephen Fung, said, it will be a brand new kind of kungfu movie that is light-hearted, entertaining and suitable for the whole family.

Courtesy of and Golden Village, am lucky to attend the Gala Premiere of TaiChi 0 in VivoCity (Singapore) on 1st Oct 2012. Besides able to catch a glimpse of the superstars from the movie (Stephen Fung, Tony Leung Kar-Fai and Yuan XiaoChao), I am able to attest to what the director has mentioned, TaiChi 0 is a new kungfu genre which is perfect  for family entertainment and will appeal especially to the young.

It comprises of elements like comic, gravity-defying kungfu fighting sequence and the steampunk style (as defined in Wikipedia, Steampunk is a genre that incorporates elements of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, horror, and speculative fiction. It involves a setting where steam power is widely used). It is refreshing and after the show, you will be asking yourself “Oh! Kungfu movie can also be shot in this way too!?”   

TaiChi 0 will be released in Singapore on 4th Oct 2012. So, if you want to experience a refreshing kung-fu ride, go catch it in cinema near you (it's in 3D too). By the way, TaiChi 0 is only the first part of a trilogy, the second part of TaiChi will be released in Singapore on 25th Oct 2012.

Also, do stay back after the credits as there will be preview of the second installment after the credits! ;-)

Brief synopsis of Tai-Chi 0:
“As an uncommonly gifted child, Yang Luchan had a fleshly abnormality that holds tremendous power growing on his forehead. However being teased as the town fool, Yang’s mother spurs him to practice martial arts, and following her wishes, Yang travels the distance to come Chen Village to learn TAI CHI and the story unfold from there…”

Casts : Yuan XiaoChao, Angelababy, Tony Leung Kar-Fai

Running Time: 95 minutes
