We participated again in this years Promax BDA session "Videophonic" where we were asked to take a song pre-MTV and make a proper video for it. This year we decided to go the fully animated route and chose Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Lookin Out My Door" The story itself is a loose translation of the classic tale of Rip Van Winkle. In this tale a man falls asleep for several years and wakes up to find that that he is old and the world around him has completely changed. Loosely based I said. Enjoy!
This is a montage of timelapses taken around Louisville, Kentucky over the course of roughly a year and a half.
I started this project off on February 28, 2012 and took my last shot on September 13, 2013.
Through this video I've explored more of Louisville than I ever thought I would, and met some friendly people along the way.
This was originally going to be my first timelapse video, but I didn’t have enough to finish it in 2012. While waiting for leaves to return to the trees in Louisville, I headed to eastern Kentucky and shot for a week around there and released the second timelapse video I started on before releasing this one. When you don’t place a time limit on yourself you can get some really good shots, but end up taking a long time to make something as close to perfect as possible.
