1. 00: ...As The Crane Takes Flight.


    from Phillip Retuta. Added 1,840 19 1

    First time using iMovie. Song used: Broken Social Scene's "Shampoo Suicide." In the spring of 2007, during my final semester of college, I took a photography class. One of the last assignments was to create a cohesive set of photographs with a theme or underlying narrative. Anyway, that's how my project, "...As The Crane Takes Flight", was born (yes, the title is a direct reference to the Ted Leo song). I wanted to portray today's youth through a series of staged and unstaged photography shoots and translate each lifestyle from music I listen to (the songs that primarily inspired me were: Broken Social Scene's "Anthems for a 17-Year-Old Girl," Belle & Sebastian's "Dirty Dream #2," and Smashing Pumpkins' "Thirty-Three"). I took many photos over the course of two months, in Chicago and in rural central Illinois -- all of which are featured in the video. Since my camera took 3 exposures per shot, I realized I could dick around iMovie for a few hours and actually make a small movie. Out of thousands of photographs, I ended up using about 46 of them for the final photo project. To see the results and a more cohesive story, check out: http://www.flickr.com/photos/retuta/sets/72157594577400723/ Oh, and I got an A in the class. If you cared, which you prolly didn't. -p.

          • Ride To Work


            from Rick Langlois Added 39 0 0

            An unplanned 6 minute video of my (15 minute) bike ride from home to work. I was testing a Bogan arm with a Pentax Optio point and shoot camera. It was the little 3.2 megapixel camera that fit in an Altoids tin. So the video is rough, and too long. I managed to edit it down to something reasonable. I wish I have kept it to three minutes though. The music was a hit from Geggy Tah. A California duo who, so far, are one-hit wonders. This is a cool song. ~RL

              Kevin and Jodi were married with one of the most beautiful backdrops we've ever filmed against. In the meadow by the pond, in front of the mansion, they were married. Congrats, Jodi and Kevin!

                A drink made by the Three T Double E's (Big Tim, Todd, and Little Tim -- all of whom are electrical engineering grad students); it's one part Wild Turkey bourbon and one part Hot Damm cinnamon schnapps, dropped in a Rockstar energy drink (in this case, the one that's 70% juice). It gets the job done, whatever that job may be.
