I usually do non-narrative short films. This one is different! My wife, son and I love to go wilderness camping. Where you canoe in with a tent, food and all you need to a remote site. The last several years we have not found the time to go, however our son is getting older and soon won't be able to go with us, so we made sure to get away this summer.
It was a special trip and one that I felt needed some narration to explain how I was feeling about it all. Most of the music is by a friend of mine, Scott B. Adams from the CD "Listening to the Adirondacks". Check him out on iTunes!.....

This Konvoa slider test video idea came to me instantly as I unwrapped it from the box. I always felt that house cats seemed to live a mostly slow-mo carefree lifestyle, and if captured on film such a video would not be complete without smooth tracking shots; this video is my depiction of that idea. Cats, milk, glidetrack, slow motion; it sounded like a fun improve test to me.
To create, I used my trusty Panasonic GH2 with a 1.8 35mm Nikor lens, which is ideal for a cinematic feel. I filmed all shots in 60 fps, and then slowed them down to 24fps using cinema tools. I must say, this Konova slider really delivers and does not disappoint. I cannot stop thinking of all the possibilities that this genius tool has added to my repertoire of film tricks ...
This is the out come of the timelapse i posted the other day. After multiple renders, several colour corrections, abit of sound thrown in and originally the wrong definition exported. This is my final piece for a college animation brief.I'mpretty happy with it for my first attempt at stop motion. I timelapsed the first nights worth of work, watch it here;
