027. Stop Motion – Crappy Spaceship

This is just a little test to try out some stop-motion techniques. I was watching star trek and wanted to reproduce some of the effects, this little clip is just the first step.
Shot on my Nikon D70 with the “Crappy” spaceship mounted on a little lego rotating platform, the second part is a little composite… not a very convincing composite, but it was quick and kinda funny to make… the best part is the way the shadows and highlights work on the surface!
It is these shadows and highlights which makes it worth it to photograph models, rather than making them 3D, but also the about of time it takes to make! Anyway, more comming soon.

News – Almost done with my Application Form!!!

Well, Im almost there now! I have been working intensly for the past few weeks on my application form for the National Film & Television School in London. Its a few pages with some intense questions, and then you have to submit a Treatment for a film you intend to make aswell as a film you have directed. The main problem is that the film that Im submitting isen’t done yet, we just recently shot it! Im still editing it, but since they mentioned that teknical skill will not be judged then I think its better to show them something that I have recently made, rather than showing something old… This film is definetly the best directing that I have done to date! The REAL problem is that I have to mail everything on monday, to make sure it arrives before the DEADLINE!

Wish me luck…

PS. more videos to come soon!

025. Video Log – Editing can be FRUSTRATING!

Finally som real news accompanied by a video!!!

Recently I have been working on my application for The National Film and Television School in London. Its a lot of work. I have to fill out the general forms, answer some questions about myself and why Im applying, aswell as submitting a film, a treatment, and an evaluation of the film I sent. So there is plenty to tend to. Right now Im working on editing the film I will be sending, and its not going so well as I had hoped. The worst part is that I have to send it in a week or so! The reason for the late editing of the film is that its first recently that we shot it! so there was never much time to begin with. I will post some more info on how its going later, for now just enjoy my little crappy film which is all about getting no where in the editing room.

024. Jack The Dull Boy – NO! John Merrick

This is actually the FIRST video I did for Jack. When making it I made myself some ground rules for how I was going to make, mostly because Jack also has some personal rules that he follows when making the tunes. I decided that I would only use footage already existing on my computer to make the cut. Ofcause that meant that I had to use a lot of weird stuff aswell as draw on my Prelinger Archive on my drives. anyways, here it is:
