Winter Skies – Work In Progress

August 28, 2015

I am slowly crawling along making progress on a video piece. The audio is about a third of the way there (not included in the video below). I’ve started working on some processing scripts to do some generative art as part of the video, if it works out ok I might attempt to turn it into an interactive installation (and try and convince someone to let me install it somewhere). The video was edited in After Effects with footage shot on a GoPro.

Here’s a short work in progress of some of it. It’s way too fast because I lose all sense of time when editing.

Winter Skies – GoPro footage from a car sunroof

August 20, 2015

Last winter I spent a while driving round with my GoPro strapped to my car sunroof to see what the result would be. The result was actually pretty cool, the wide angle on the lens gives a really lovely effect as the tops of trees expand and contract as they pass through the field of view.

I used a really sturdy window camera mount (click for page on Amazon), it’s sturdier than the photos make it look and it attaches solidly. I did find that initially the vibrations of the car caused the camera to bounce a little too much (you can see this in some of the footage) but got around this by opening the sunroof a little and lightly clamping the camera in the gap.

I have a fair amount of footage of the camera bouncing off my arm as it comes away from the sunroof, and a view of my face for an entire car journey when the GoPro landed in the passenger footwell. I will not be uploading this.

The video below is all the footage of the sky, with the bits of me sliced out, I’ve removed the audio as it was mostly me talking to myself or the new Doomtree album (which had just been released). Some of the footage is jittery and sick inducing but some of it came out really nicely and is quite calming to watch. I’m going to put together a video with the best bits and an appropriate audio track shortly.

I’m driving up to London tonight so will try and get some more.
