Default Watching Avatar - Upside Down!

Ok .. seriously .. anybody, besides me, ever watch Avatar while upside down?

It wasn't a planned idea, I was watching it one more time, before I left for my trip, and decided to stretch out on my Inverter Table. So there I was hanging upside down watching the movie, starting at the Toruk Makto Scene and through the Tree of Souls scene.

It was actually a very interesting experience. For one I noticed a lot more details particularly of the Navi markings and beadwork! But also the whole thing became sort of surreal experience in terms that the Tree-of-Souls scenes almost took on a cave atmosphere and hanging bat's perspective of the Navi, etc.

So ummm .. anyone else up to trying it and sharing their experiences?

And no wonder Indigenous peoples refer to the 'here after' as the Happy Hunting Grounds! Has it ever occured to anyone why the bioluminescence dots, on the Na'vi!"

Sounds very interesting actually... things become weird when you're upside down (especially for a period of time) all the blood rushes to your head... i should try this =D

I'll definitely be giving it a go sometime. The other (easier) way to make a movie seem different/new is to change the video to a mirror image or "flip" it so that things that were on the left side of the screen are now are the right. You pick up on soo many details that you never noticed before. (Also JC uses this technique to review his films)

Never really thought about doing that... seems strange, and as Stanley said, the blood would really rush to your head that way, which I sort of have a phobia for. But as far as noticing details goes, after working so many times with each character meticulously through photoshop, there's not a bead, feather, stripe or spot pattern I couldn't tell you about.

I'm not so sure about watching it upside-down, but flipping it sounds like an interesting idea. I ought to try this and see what happens.

(This definitely sounds like a good way to review your films -- sort of like having a friend read your writing aloud to you, in that it gives you a different perspective on what you've been hammering away at for <insert long amount of time here>.)

I don't really have any effective way to watch it upside down physically, but flipping it on the monitor is easy enough (my computer is my 'TV' ), makes me wonder if the difference is partly physical though, as generally, just having an inverted image just feels weird.
