1. All My Cycle - Ayumi Matsuzaka


    from Goesta Struve-Dencher Added 2,074 7 1

    Brief overview of year-long body-based art performance. Life on earth is sustained by symbiotic cycles of energy exchange. Our urban lives, however, are patterned on a linear process of consumption and disposal -- from the supermarket, where our food magically appears, to the kitchen, through the body and finally down the toilet. What we call bodily waste actually contains the energy to generate new growth, new food. Ayumi Matsuzaka's year-and-a-half-long "body experience" reconnects us, by proxy (although all of us can follow her example), with our role in the energy path between life and earth. Together with several farm animals, Ayumi experiences the natural cycle of sustenance from ingestion through digestion, fertilization and regrowth; at the end (and start of the implicit next round), both Ayumi and the animals eat vegetables grown using their own bodily wastes. Their bodies thereby, metaphorically and physically, remember the connection. Berlin and environs, 2010-2011. www.ayumi-matsuzaka.com Camera & editing: Goesta Struve-Dencher Music: Nedret Akcaoglu (www.oriental-records.com) Technical details: Cameras: primarily Canon EOS 550D, some footage shot on Panasonic HDC-TM900.

      • Berlin > Marienthal: how to ride a bike and shoot ...


        from Goesta Struve-Dencher Added 131 0 0

        Rough cut & grading & sound ... some rendering artifacts. As seen here (long & boring or, rather, soothing and meditative ;), this sequence is intended primarily to demonstrate a rather extreme utilization of the fabulous (great+cheap!) "Sturdycam" rig by Sturdyshots.com . Despite an ill-starred start (right outside the apartment I dropped my Sturdycam's ball-bearing in the sand and didn't have a spare ... hence the pronounced sideways wobble that is NOT characteristic of this device!) -- despite winds amplified by the speed of the bike (don't try this with a Merlin ...) -- despite my less-than optimal choice of a 45mm-equivalent lens (I think, don't remember exactly, but similar anyway) and decision not to use the Sturdycam's foam wind-dampening doodad -- despite owning a bike that will not ever let me ride freehand (thus having to use the rig single-handed) -- despite the rig hitting the handlebars at the most inopportune time -- for a first try we got some relatively amazing "bike-on-bike action" on video, I think. To prove this (i.e. that the usable footage is longer than 2 seconds at a time), there's a lot of footage of, well, riding through the countryside. So this is for you video gear buffs rather than the popcorn crowd ;) Oh, and there's some footage on the train & subway too, of course. No shot has been stabilized in post or slowed down etc. in any way. In addition to the 550D, I also had a Sony mini-monitor mounted on the rig, since I couldn't possibly look at the 3" screen while riding. For shooting purposes, the 45-minute bike trip took about 2 hours+, so my arm was shaking by the end. I wuv my sturdycam, "injured" or not, it's a trooper. There's another (also German) video on the 'tube riding a tank across rough terrain with the sturdy; it's actually smoother than mine (camera guy had both hands free ... that's my excuse ...). Can't wait to find out if one could do this with a vest/arm too. Or how about riding horseback? Would love to see if that's possible! PS the grading was done using my own Motion/Conduit preset (which I think caused the flickering bug) and CGC's Cinestyle with Gorillagrain. Music by Nedret Akcaoglu (electronic) and Kiseki (singing stone/violin), all Berlin artists.

              Video test shown at 1080/25p. Take in account that slow web connections might cause stuttering motion when played back in Full HD.

My Nikon D5300 kept on doing good jobs as usual and I thought it was time to add a good stabilizer kit. The SturdyCam is cheap, simple to use and very, very efficient. Jacopo, its creator, is an excellent coach, I could rely on him and on its remarkable skills, time after time I realised that the simple fact of balancing a SturdyCam is fun in itself. My previous experiences with the old Steadicam Jr. weren't satisfying for various reasons, now I need a lot of practice to work with a stabilizer the best I can. This video is just a test, I must refine start, stop and turning movements to avoid some of the most common mistakes, but I'm working on them and I think there's nothing better than a SturdyCam, except for... A SturdyCam plus a good steady operator!

                  from XPY Films Cornwall Added 246 1 2

                  A quick test to try out my new steadycam. It's a 'Sturdycam' by Sturdyshots. First impressions... This contraption is epic and at such a s great price! There's Definitely still more to learn with it, but this will be a great tool for smooth building walk arounds, plus great for following subject shots! Can't wait to use this more in our productions, add another dimension!
