Playing with still and moving frames within frames.
Some recent painted frames.
Playing with individual frames. More kaleidoscopic kraziness.
A short video of the same painted footage in the previous posts. Composition by Mike Vernusky. Test sequence for a larger project?
A test sequence w. a composition by Mike Vernusky.
Back to animating individual frames for Cosmos. Cutting each image down to a frame or two is tedious as all hell, but I can cheat it by cropping them to a few seconds each, then running the whole clip in fast motion. Nuance and rhythm is lost, but it gives be a basic idea of what all these frames might look like when animated.
Experimenting with my kaleidoscope, the video mode on my camera, and reshooting a Quicktime version of Autumnal off my computer monitor.
More stills from a painted filmstrip for Cosmos, along with a short, simple animation. I like WP’s gallery mode for images; makes it a lot easier to product a visual storyboard in short order.
Revisiting Red Hook, more than a year and a half after my first visit. Ikea where graving docks once lay. More fun with toys as optics.
Thoughts of Jupiter and Saturn on my mind; no wonder my shoulders feel heavy. Continuing to work with inks and solvents to see how they behave. From a series of video sequences I’ve been working with, a timeline and a return to visual storyboarding. I think I might use just this sequence as a process video.
Strangely enough, WordPress’ Flash-based uploader ignores the alphabetical order in which I named the image files. Thus, my storyboard becomes random. Interesting…
Seeing what x264 and WP’s Flash-based compression do to one of my vids. Resolution seems better, but load time is a bitch.
A single painted filmstrip, plus the twirl filter in Final Cut Pro toolbox. Not serious. Just seeing what pushing a button will do. Not much. But it’s pretty.
Process work from “Cosmos,” my current project. Also, my first stab at posting video with WordPress (compression not as bad as I had feared.
