Artistic Style Transfer for video
Neural Style Transfer is an image processing technique whereby you can take the 'style' of an image or painting and apply it to any other image. You may have come across this technique on the popular image app Prisma - if you haven't tried it, you should, it's a clever little app and a lot of fun to experiment with!
We've refined a workflow to apply this procedure to video, creating a beautiful and vivid effect perfect for short videos, or social media content.
That's not to say it's a simple process though. The process is very manually intensive with a considerable number of variables to consider with each image. We've enjoyed researching the various research studies into Neural style transfer and deep-learning networks which supports applications such as this. If you'd like to find out more, we've included some links below. Alternatively, we'd be happy to discuss an idea you have for this style of content.

We can turn new or existing video into beautiful vignettes. Simply storyboard a scene you'd like, decide on a style and leave the rest to us!
