"Portholes with Sails"
This is my submission to the Vimeo Weekend Project Group's "Split Screen" project. This entire project was started on Saturday, June 23rd, 2012 and finished on Monday, June 25th, including all shots, editing, and original music.. The project specs were:
"+ Your video must be split into at least 2 screens at all times.
+ Your video must be no more than 3 minutes long.
+ You must upload and post your video to the Weekend Project Group by Tuesday, June 26th at 11:59 PM (EST)."
This project owes its inspiration to Bill Newsinger's pioneering and resourceful 'out of the box' multi frame video work. Thank you Bill.
Here are two very good examples:
Every time I see Bill’s work I take a lesson. If you are interested in learning more about what the possibilities are in split screen or multiple screen work please take a good look at what Bill has successfully accomplished.
I spent Saturday and Sunday outside at a nearby marina enjoying the sights of the first weekend of summer. I shot over 180 clips in 2 days and used only about a dozen. Most of these shots were taken near the Harbor Master's cabin in Marina Bay, Richmond, California. The portholes and flags are actually part of the Harbor Master's quarters which overlooks the marina. There is a mix of 8x time-lapse, 1/4 slow motion, and real time motion as well as various color grades to capture the mood. The music is based on the rhythms of the clanking rigging of the nearby sailboats and the melodic content based on the occasional ship bells, whistles, and horns.
Cameras: Nikon Coolpix S9100 (timelapse cloud shots) and Sony HDR-CX500v (everything else).
Video Editing Suite: Sony Vegas Pro 10
Music performed on a Yamaha S08 Synthesizer with a Zoom G2.1u effects processor and recorded directly to the Vegas timeline.
