This is my version of a diy pocket dolly, driven by an adjustable 12V gear motor. The power comes from 8 AA rechargeable batteries, which are integrated into the controller. The dolly is pretty light and compact so that it fits in a backpack and I can take it with me on walks and on holiday trips.
Arsenal the multimedia production company representing Onesize handled the large-scale promotional campaign for FX’s new show "Justified", based on an Elmore Leonard character.
Onesize.nl was asked to direct, supervise and post-produce the promo in close co-operation with the talented people of FX networks. They asked me to join their ranks in the 3D camera projection of the characters and surroundings.
In this promo we applied the same technique that was used in the Playgrounds titles film. The big difference in post production (compared to the Playgrounds film) were all the detailed backgrounds we had to put in 3D as well. Quite a challenge.
Few days ago I started thinking about how I could re-purpose the keyboard of the dismantled piano I keep in the garden, so I thought to build a new instrument by combining it with some other parts I had laying around. I ended up with this mechanical hybrid thing I thought to call "Bassoforte" (bass + pianoforte).
The neck is from a broken electric bass, as a bridge I used a cabinet handle, the pickups are from a guitar, and the part at the top where the strings are attached is a chimney cap, which works as resonator as well as percussive sound.
The track I created is a tribute to my Dad who is a big fan of Western comic books and "spaghetti western" films, and because of him I am too.
