This was a retry from a previous creative thing of the day, "Day 212 / Soap Bubble Psychedelia". (vimeo.com/15598839)
My co-worker and friend Jeff Ponchick was inspired by that video that he wanted to help if I'd be willing to try again.
The last time I did this I completely jerry-rigged the setup and the video turned out rather swirly and erratic. My goal on this one was to capture a very calm soap bubble.
Even though it was still a long evening of trial and error we ultimately captured the kind of footage that we were looking to get.
In the video watch as the colors slowly shift from one to the next, gravitating towards the bottom until finally breaking apart and popping.
I wish that I had more time to edit this video but under the time constraints I opted to throw a bunch of dissolves in. You know what they say, when you can't solve it - dissolve it.
I hope you enjoy!
