    Thanks so much to @PlanetMitch (Mitch Aunger) for the article about this video on the Planet5D blog here - http://blog.planet5d.com/2010/08/the-drive-pastels-video-and-a-toy-car-art-by-victoria-taylor-gore/ And make sure and see the behind the scenes video here - http://vimeo.com/13781262 Video, Art, and Editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore http://www.victoriataylorgore.com http://www.anartjournal.com (blog) Music - Midnight Manhattan by Jeremy Sherman Music license purchased from http://www.shockwave-Sound.com I worked on this project through the summer - both the pastel backgrounds (that I'll show in my gallery in Santa Fe) and the video. I'm using my own pastels for the backgrounds for the video and mixing in real objects (like the antique toy car) into the scenes. The video includes themes that I have often painted before, but making the scenes work for the video gave me new ideas for my work. The style of the paintings are my style...not a style I invented for this project. The best part though is that by using my pastels as part of the film, it has enriched my composition and challenged me to come up with more creative points of view. I love combining both my passions - pastel and video. Shot with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens, Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro lens, and Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens. Editing done in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. The black and white scene was done with Digieffects Aged Film - wonderful effects package. I also used a Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3x...a piece of gear that I find essential, especially with the precise focusing needed with close up shots like this. I also used my wonderful Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly in a very unconventional way - see the BTS video - http://vimeo.com/13781262 - for more info. on that :)

      Video and editing - Victoria Taylor-Gore http://www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Balloon Girl" by Hungry Lucy Purchased music license from http://www.jamendo.com/en/ Cast - Meredith Dunn This is a video I did during a photography shoot of Meredith Dunn at a local amusement park. A still from this video was included in the "15 & One: Fifteen Photographers and One Model" group photography show at Artgecko Gallery in Amarillo, Texas in July, 2010. Artgecko Gallery - http://www.artgecko.com/. I'm not a professional photographer (I'm a fine artist with a passion for video), so I appreciate being included in the show...it was a great learning experience for me! Shot with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens. Edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, with "Aged Film" effects from Digieffects (for the grainy texture), and filters from Photoshop Extended CS4 (added the surface blur and watercolor filters) to give the video a soft, textural, and dreamy/aged film effect. I also used my Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3x, and it really helped me keep clear focus on the model. This was my first video shoot with a model, and thanks to model Meredith Dunn for her professional and expressive performance and cooperation :)
