This is an example of a close up video that I have shot in my house. I decided to use my cat as a subject matter as I feel connected to it in many ways. I also like the representation of beauty shown through the animal in the video. I tried to frame the video in a way which would concentrate on certain parts of the cat.
I used hand held camera, I didn't think tripod was necessary for this video.
I used brown solid color overlay when editing to make the color nicely toned. I used basic transition effects such as: 'cross dissolve' and 'dip to black' as I wanted to keep things simple.
The idea behind the video was to show a short story of cat's lifestyle, which mainly evolves around sleeping. I captured it using close ups as well as extreme close ups at times.
This experiment has helped me become more patient, as there were times where I had to wait for a long time in order to get the shot that I wanted. If I was to do this experiment again, I would try different camera angles.

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