1. UPDATE: The film has been selected for a collection of 22 world's best short films about bicycles called Bicycle Movies! For more information head to: http://www.bicyclemovies.com/bicycle-movies/

    A short unicycle chase film, winner of the Alice Springs Bicycle Film Festival 2012 (http://www.alicespringsbicyclefilmfestival.com).

    Shot during 2 weekends on a camcorder with no knowledge about technicalities of making videos (hence not in HD, unfortunately).

    Edited in Final Cut Pro X. Here's how I achieved the silent film look:
    - black and white effect
    - increased contrast
    - 1.5x speed for most clips (some a bit more)
    - dust and scratches - modified overlay alfa clip I found in a tutorial somewhere and can't find it anymore
    - flashing - custom effect created in Motion (random changes in lightness)
    - shivering of titles - custom effect created in Motion (random changes in position)
    - aperture-like transitions - custom transition again created in Motion

  2. A short time lapse of sunset in Scheveningen in Holland. The clip is in 24fps and the time lapse interval was set to 5s. I think it'd have been better to set it to 1 or 2s though. It would be a bit smoother. Next time...
