Team Telemasters 2008 UAV Outback Challenge Documentary as part of the Search and Rescue Challenge.
After a long toil and a great competition, we were crowned the "Winners" of the open category of the 2008 UAV Outback Challenge Search and Rescue Challenge. Even though we didn't complete the mission and rescue "Outback Joe" we were awarded the most points for the competition. The competition started with 34 entrants and only four made it to compete at Kingaroy Airport in Queensland Australia. The competing teams were ourselves, QUT, Missouri S&T and Muroc.
Animated light paintings of a little piano player performing. Filmed at night with the lovely I-5 and San Diego skyline in the background. I would like to thank everyone for the fantastic feedback I have received lately. To answer a few questions, I wrote the music and recorded it first. The frames were photographed with a Canon Rebel using 20-30 second exposure time. I used a small green LED keychain light to draw each frame. Once all the positions were photographed they were strung together and synchronized to the music in After Effects.
