Napoleon Dynamite – the movie

with 6 comments

I recently finished this trailer for an upcoming short multimedia piece on my historical re-enactment project. The final film will be around 5 mins I expect so this 100-ish second piece is a bit of a taster of what’s to come. A big thankyou to Stephen Seymour of the 94th Regiment of Foot and Keri Tolhurst of the 50th Regiment of Foot, who both allowed me into their homes to film and interview them on their fascinating hobby.

Producing this trailer has been a pretty good learning experience. It’s amazing learning not only how powerful audio is but also how still and video have rather different qualities which do actually compliment each other. I’d definitely like to work more with them in the future.

The actual film hasn’t been finished yet but the trailer has been on time (I favour doing things the wrong way round obviously).

Bringing Google Street View to life (or C4 get ‘urban’)

with one comment

Great advert by the UK TV channel Channel 4 to promote their new foray into the ‘urban’ realm. Set on one street near Brick Lane in East London, this trailer explores the street and life within it by using a blending of Google Street View, motion video, and an incredibly fast moving camera. There are also a million cameos from the UK’s hip-hop/grime talent of the moment.

Quite a composite of images:
