This post is going to be exactly what it says on the label. Let’s do it in order. A video I made for the Inside Knowledge blog to start with, eh?
It’s best to run it in high-res at full screen (of course I would say that). It’s a reflective look at the weeks we’ve spent photographing and videoing the lab. They’ve been really helpful and patient with us, hovering around, snapping away.
On the technical side, I used Andreamosaic to generate different resolution mosaics of captured still frames from the videos, then blended it all together in Final Cut Pro. A couple of bits are a little suss, but I really loved the effect when I first put it together and hope to tinker with it more in the future.
Next: the promise. July will be a lot more entertaining on here than June was! I spent so much time in June writing, recording and creating elsewhere, that my blog seemed to be reduced to a “hey, look over there” festival. This month you’ll be seeing some good new articles, probably starting with ’10 things I hate about London’ later in the week!
And finally… a drag queen. I took my camera on a trip to the London Pride parade on the weekend and while it wasn’t as outlandish as a Carnivale, there was lots of colour and lots of character, which is great from behind the lens… you’ll be seeing more shots from it soon!
