Join Eyebeam Alum Jeff Crouse for a skillshare/pizza party to support his new project: Unlogo.  Jeff will teach you how to detect and track logos in videos using OpenCV 2.1, and augment/manipulate videos with the new FFMPEG AVFilter interface.

*Some* c++ experience recommended.

Unlogo is a web service that eliminates logos and other corporate signage from videos. On a practical level, it takes back your personal media from the corporations and advertisers. On a technical level, it is a really cool combination of some brand new OpenCV and FFMPEG functionality. On a poetic level, it is a tool for focusing on what is important in the record of your life rather than the ubiquitous messages that advertisers want you to focus on.
