On exhibit as a video art installation at the Gasteig Cultural Museum in Munich Germany [Dec. 2008 - Feb. 2009]: gasteig.de.
A few days ago I got a Canon EOS 5D. I was so excited, I started taking random pictures of my hand, just to get the feel of pointing and shooting. I was about to trash them all, but when scrolling rapidly through the images on my camera's viewfinder, I thought they made a cool little stop-action movie.
The next day, I borrowed a tripod from my girlfriend's Dad. I also borrowed some of her 'Day of the Dead' figurines. I shot some pictures of them on the bathroom sink. I pulled the pictures into Final Cut, and then edited them to music.
The song was one I wrote and recorded a long time ago on an old Tascam 4 Track cassette recorder.
I put this together pretty quickly as an experiment, but I think it came out pretty cool.
