    Video and editing - Victoria Taylor-Gore http://www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Mistral" by Gayle Ellett & Todd Montgomery Music license purchased from http://www.shockwave-sound.com/ This is an exercise I did with my Canon 7D. I bought these painted glass ornaments at Hobby Lobby a few years ago because they were so strange and surreal. I used red and green lights to enhance the ornaments with complementary colors and the tertiary blends they create. I wanted to play with the effects of colored light, and close up shots to present a more abstract view of the objects - somewhat inspired by Philip Bloom's last challenge. There is no color correction done in post, only some adjustment of levels in Adobe Premiere on a few clips. Shot with a Canon 7D, Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro lens, edited with Adobe Premiere Pro. And as always, I used my Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3x- can't focus close macro shots with this kind of shallow depth of field without it...has made a huge difference in my videos.

      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 :)
