“The curved glass and the water cause the image to distort… creating an effect that looks 3D”

It looks 3D because it is 3D - that’s what you get when you curve a sheet a paper.

Creative and careful use of the panorama mode on your phone is a much faster (and easier) method of getting a good shot for the head in a jar trick.

Are you sure? Have you actually done this?

Panorama mode is usually (always?) used by holding the camera at a fixed point in space but altering its direction along an arc. (Think: standing in one spot and rotating your head to view the surrounding scenery.)

The head-in-a-jar effect requires something different entirely: a view of a single point from multiple angles. (Think: staring at a single point [say, a statue] while you walk around it.)

The description for the music used was a little lack luster.

Anyone have any more specific information other than where it was licensed from?
