Haven’t really posted in a bit. Mainly because I’ve been super slammed with my newest short film – The Ripening, which involves 3D, 2D, and stop motion. I hoping to have it wrapped up before summer hits so I can pursue some more experimental ideas.
Along that vien I have also been doing a good bit of research into the art of pixilation, time-lapse photography, light graffiti and something else called pixel-lapse for use in developing my next film.
pixel-lapse is a technique I discovered through Steven Silberg’s site http://www.pixel-lapse.com/ that as he describes it – “”Pixel-lapse” combines the temporal nature of long exposure photography and the precise organization of the digital matrix. By creating an image one pixel at a time, each part of the image shows different captured moments. In the end, each image not only has dimension but also gains duration and velocity. He has a free ware app on his site for playing with the idea that uses my laptop’s imbedded camera here’s an image of me at my desk taken over 45 minutes of time.
I’ve been meaning to write Steven and see about attaining a way to attach this to an external camera for use in time-lapse work I think it could provide some interesting artistic avenues for exploration in time based work.
Along those lines I’ve discovered a time-lapse app for my iPhone and did a test the other day while enjoying my coffee. Check it…
While these are but early discoveries, I’m extremely excited about their potential and plan on further developments using my DSLR in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for some light graffiti and long exposure work.
