Video fun

I love this blog stuff, it's so easy to put stuff up.

Here's a little film I did for the Machineart (an industrial design firm)  prototype motorcycle. It was shot old school, on a 16 mm Arriflex.

"Get Off"

They're working on a new prototype that will be done by the middle of February.   If everything works out we'll be shooting it as a demo in my Advanced Lighting class.

About two years ago I got to spend one day shooting on the floor of the New York Commodities Exchange for a corporate client.  It was one of the most interesting things I've ever shot; like watching a Superbowl game being played with billions of dollars.  Every day these guys gamble on the value of things like oil and copper, betting on values for dates as far into the future as ten years, often with their own money.  They can become a millionaire in a day, lose it the next, and make it back tenfold on the third.  It is not a profession for the faint of heart.

Later on I was noodling around with the images on Quicktime and created this little slideshow. It's too bad the video window is so small because some of the subtleties of gesture and expression are lost.  

Given the current state of the economy it seemed timely....
