  2. The central theme of this video is based on the title of the album, Stuff That Rotates.
    Using the motion of rotating or spinning we came up with the idea of creating
    a device which spins the camera, turning objects and people into blurred
    shapes and trailing colours. The device abstracts normal situations by distorting them.

    The device is powered by an electric drill, constructed from bicycle and drum parts,
    wood and metal plates, which was strong enough to allow us to rotate the heavy
    weight of a Canon 5D MKII stably and at a very high speed. The drill was plugged
    to a variable speed controller, allowing us to adjust the speed of the cameras
    rotations by turning a dial.

    The setting of the video is the band preforming live in a studio set.
    The main camera rotates at a selected speed as the band performs.
    While the camera is rotating, objects such as the skin of the bass drum
    start to rotate at the same speed as the main camera, giving the effect of
    those objects becoming static in the frame while everything else is spinning.
    When a person stands in front of these objects it gives the effect of the person
    spinning rather than the background.

    Other circular boards with graphics are turned on and off running in and out of sync
    with the main rotating camera. Each of these graphics have variable speed control dials
    to adjust their speed.

    There are no effects added to the footage in post production, all effects were created
    by the spinning of the camera.
