This video is about a paper airplane flying contest organized by the BCIT Student Association for students enrolled at the Aerospace Campus in Richmond, Canada. It was shot on February 21, 2013 for the BCIT Student Association.
The footage was a live event shot in four hours following the student teams from plane build to launch. In this time I was able to get the stills, set up my time-lapse camera in six different locations and record the video footage. I recorded the audio with my H4N Zoom recorder and synced later in FCPX. I left one tripod with the camera unattended for the time-lapses, which is really stupid but, I needed the shot and I was without assistance.
The decision to integrate crazy saturated images with b/w was done largely as a result of the positive feedback received from the same style used in, 'Hello Floripa-Sampa'. Batman was the pilot of one of the planes, the others were piloted by other superheroes.
Thanks to the sponsors of the event for their generous support and prizes for the winning teams.
Hope you enjoy it.
