An HONORABLE MENTION submission to the Vimeo Weekend Challenge, for the weekend of April 12th, 2014.
I had just started following Taylor Hall’s Instagram account (http://instagram.com/chiefin_taylor) when I read that the Vimeo Weekend Challenge assignment for that week was to make a film about "human movement." So I got in touch with Taylor and asked if he wanted be the subject of a three minute or less micro documentary.
Taylor Hall is a yo-yo thrower, collector, and general skill toy enthusiast living in Los Angeles, California.
Thomas Edward Smith is the proprietor of Ampersand Moving Pictures: http://ampersandmovingpictures.com
This film was shot and edited over the course of 24 hours. I used a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G6 and the Vario 14-42mm kit lens. For the 120 fps slow motion shots I used a GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition. Interview audio was mic'd with an Audio Technica Pro-70 lavaliere.
The song used is “The Great Break-off" by The Insider (http://www.cheshiremusic.net).
I made this video because I wanted to, but if you had fun watching, consider tipping me a some Ðogecoins: DTjELaM4kRmgmirRRxwSvC5gNneGNxmQMD
