1. Regarding the Nature of Luminance in Ubiquitous Darkness


    from Karen Abad / Added

    Charlie wanted to collaborate, so he shot, I shot, and I painstakingly tried to teach myself things in After Effects. Editing and experimentation has become an obviously important choice over sleep. Conceived and constructed in 6950X720. Deliciously executed in 3083X320 in FCP. Song: "Lovers Who Uncover" By The Little Ones, Remixed by Crystal Castles Best Viewed in Full Screen. (Feel free to download and experience the largeness that I have concocted, especially over multiple monitors.)

      • Kodak zi8 Low Light Test - Indoors

        I decided to do a low light test after seeing fishycomics video. I decided to see what kind of footage the kodak zi8 can churn out in different scenarios. Everything so far looks really good. I shot it on 720p with face recognition on and image stabilization off. I didn't really feel like editing it so I just put all the footage I had together to some music (Song is Empty Nest by Wild Beast). Hopefully this helps anyone thinking about purchasing a kodak zi8. Its definitely better in low light than the flip. If you know how to light up a scene, then you should get some great images out of the kodak. Took me a while to learn whats what All footage is raw PS. By the way, I have modded my kodak with a ring to hold a wide angle lens, macro lens, and telephoto lens. Slowly adding stuff to it as i go

              Notes: A music video for the band "LAKE" using live-action shadow puppets. Shadow puppetry is hard! I should have animated it (like "The Adventures of Prince Achmed"). Actually... i should done a different story too. This video doesn't do the song justice. The story was originally going to be about a miller who was haunted by ghosts in the river, but i had trouble figuring out how to get it to work with shadow puppets. Also, just so you know, it looks a better tiny; like on an iPhone or iPod.
