    Small *STYROFOAM* Skyfun jet (34" Wingspan) flying in and around a Wind turbine. The blades were moving a LOT faster than I thought initially. A close call, I think the antenna is shorter now. This was flown FPV (First Person View). The live image is transmitted to the ground for viewing through video goggles worn by the pilot.

        ...or "an ode to wind turbines." Less eye candy and more contemplation/hypnosis in this one. More abstract also. Shot with a Canon XHA1

            UPDATE: I uploaded a new version based on the comments I got here - thanks everyone: http://www.vimeo.com/686604 This was shot in Volderslev just south of Odense, Denmark. Modern wind turbines were invented in this country and Danish turbines have a world market share of 50%. Denmark gets about 20% of its power from wind turbines. The world's largest turbine company Vestas.com (located in Denmark) took over NEG Micon (another Danish company and the maker of these wind turbines) a few years ago. Getting close to these 'monsters' is a bit scary. They don't actually make a lot of noise, but while I was there, two of them activated their 'air brakes' which scared me quite a bit. They do this for safety reasons when the wind gets too strong. I managed to get footage of one of these 'air brakes' happening, so look closely. I edited this video in the Canon HG10's supplied software and exported the footage as DivX @ 5000kbps. I used the TV setting with shutter speeds of between 1/250 and 1/2000. I used a custom 'image effect': Col. depth @ + Sharpness @ + Contrast @ + Brightn. @ + White balance @ sun Quality setting @ HXP (15.000kbps) Frame rate @ PF25 (PAL) A tripod was used all the time. Music: Lemon Jelly: "A tune for Jack".

              A part real-time, part timelapse film showing a day in the life of a modern windfarm. Filmed at Wattle Point Windfarm, Edithburgh, South Australia using mainly a Nikon D90 and Canon EOS 350D, with extra snippets by a Sony VX2100. The music is based on the opening Andante movement of Elgar's Enigma Variations, and totally reworked by Rob D to make a piece called "Clubbed to Death"

                  The design crew at Framestore NY brought me on board to help complete the second installment in the GE Brilliant Machines campaign. After two days of the team on set with the actual DeLorean from Back to the Future, the cg department set out to create a full 3D version as well as recreating some of the car effects from the film. Following the opening DeLorean shots I was tasked with executing the sequence that takes the audience deep into the inner workings of the car and reveals what turns out to be a powerful GE turbine making time travel possible. My involvement included animating the camera, lighting, modeling the interior, exterior, and factory from scratch to match the turbines in GE's Renwood factory. All created using Cinema 4D and After Effects. Find out more and see the full spot : www.framestore.com/work/ge-brilliant-machines-future-now www.johnlikens.com/bttf.html reel music by Morgan Zarate

                    From the comments / feedback of Eugenia and others and with the generous help of Eugenia in particular, I've made my first Vegas Movie Studio clip. It's a shorter and 'tighter' version of a previous post: http://www.vimeo.com/679184 It wasn't easy (being new to video editing and all) but I think the final result can hold its' head high :) I followed Eugenia's tutorials: http://eugenia.gnomefiles.org/2007/09/19/crash-course-on-sony-vegas/ and http://eugenia.gnomefiles.org/2007/11/09/exporting-with-vegas-for-vimeo-hd/ (I used the 2a option). I've made the footage a little darker and added some contrast - plus added a little 'sharpness'. Hope you think it's an improvement, since I spent quite some time on it... :)
