This two-shot masterpiece is the result of boredom while sitting at a Chili's Too overlooking the runway while waiting for your flight. Took the thing on my iPhone, as I didn't have my 7D on me, which obviously results in auto-exposure flicker and adjustments that I could do without. Then I took the footage in to After Effects and applied the camera blur using a gradient as a depth map to create the tilt-shift effect. This effect has probably (no, definitely) been overdone, but I still think it's fun, so I just wanted to take a chance to figure out how to do it.
Also learned how to do the scribbly sort of text and apply 3D shadows in real environments just for fun. Did you catch the vroom? I have no idea why I put that in there.
If anybody watches this video and wants to figure out how to do any of these things also, you could check out these things that I used:
Scribbly text: youtube.com/watch?v=ln_rtwYd9eU (I had no idea there was a scribble effect in After Effects. Made it much easier than I thought it was going to be)
3D shadows: videocopilot.net/tutorials/3d_shadows/
Song: "Swing Tree" by Discovery (the real version is quite a bit longer)

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
