Seattle in Motion

Seattle in Motion

This video was created from around 3600 individual photos shot in the spring, summer, and fall of 2012.

After several years and hundreds of sequences of traditional time lapse, I was looking for a way to challenge myself and grow. I started learning to capture in the motion time lapse (hyperlapse) technique, where I move the camera slightly –usually around 12 inches (~30 cm) — for hundreds of times (between every interval). This creates an artificial parallax, and it was exciting to explore this new way of thinking, seeing, moving, and capturing.

At first, I was doing hand-held captures and moving between each shot, but after a while I began using a tripod and moving that along a path, so that I could drag the shutter and get more of the motion blur effect that I like for my time lapse work.

Each motion time lapse capture session is a little like a performance, because so many things have to go perfectly or the whole sequence fails… Usually I had to set the intervalometer to about 10 or 12 seconds, and then hope I could move the tripod, level up the shot, get the center exactly replicated — before the intervalometer took the shot. Many times that didn’t work out ! After a couple of months, I could get in a rhythm with this and had more success. This is a work in progress — but I really like the way it has given me a new way of working and of exploring space when making my time lapse pieces… I look at the world differently now.

ABOUT 7th IOAA
ioaa2013.gr/
The aim of the IOAA is to introduce high school students to the marvels of the Cosmos and promote their knowledge in the area of Astronomy and Astrophysics.
By participating in such international events, they have the opportunity to meet students with the same interests from all over the world. It is the first time that Greece hosts an International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics, it is the first time that an astronomical-astrophysical Olympiad is organized by one of the old European Union countries and, of course, it is the first time that such an important scientific and cultural event will take place in the Prefecture of Thessaly and especially in Volos, the homeland of Centaurus Chiron, the teacher of Hercules and Achilles. The involved institutions (Ministry of Education, Prefecture of Thessaly, Municipality of Volos, University of Thessaly, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Society of Astronomy and Space in Volos) cordially welcome you.
We are looking forward to offer you our hospitality in Greece, the land that gave birth to the science of Astronomy, while the forefathers of Astronomy (Thales, Pythagoras, Democritus, Eudoxus, Heraclides, Aristarchus, Eratosthenes, Hipparchus, Ptolemy, Hypatia and others) cultivated, advanced and spread the beauty and mysteries of the science of Astronomy up to the far reaches of the then known world.

Σκοπός της διοργάνωσης είναι να εμφυσήσει στους μαθητές της Δευτεροβάθμιας Εκπαίδευσης την αγάπη για τις επιστήμες του ουρανού και να προάγει τη γνώση τους σε θέματα Αστρονομίας και Αστροφυσικής. Με τη συμμετοχή τους στο Διεθνή διαγωνισμό οι μαθητές έχουν την ευκαιρία να γνωρίσουν συμμαθητές τους με τα ίδια επιστημονικά ενδιαφέροντα από διάφορα μέρη του κόσμου.
Είναι η πρώτη φορά που η Ελλάδα φιλοξενεί Διεθνή Ολυμπιάδα Αστρονομίας — Αστροφυσικής, είναι η πρώτη φορά που διοργανώνεται Ολυμπιάδα Αστρονομίας — Αστροφυσικής σε χώρα της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης (εκ των παλαιών κρατών — μελών) και φυσικά είναι η πρώτη φορά που ένα τόσο σημαντικό επιστημονικό και πολιτιστικό γεγονός θα λάβει χώρα στην Περιφέρεια Θεσσαλίας και ειδικά στην πόλη του Βόλου, την πατρίδα του Κένταυρου Χείρωνα, του δάσκαλου του Ηρακλή και του Αχιλλέα.
Οι εμπλεκόμενοι φορείς (Υπουργείο Παιδείας, διά Βίου Μάθησης & Θρησκευμάτων, η Περιφέρεια Θεσσαλίας, ο Δήμος Βόλου, το Πανεπιστήμιο Θεσσαλίας, το Αριστοτέλειο Πανεπιστήμιο Θεσσαλονίκης και η Εταιρεία Αστρονομίας & Διαστήματος Βόλου) σας χαιρετούν εγκάρδια και περιμένουμε να σας φιλοξενήσουμε στην ελληνική γη που γέννησε την επιστήμη της Αστρονομίας και με τους πατέρες της (Θαλή, Πυθαγόρα, Δημόκριτο, Εύδοξο, Ηρακλείδη, Αρίσταρχο, Ερατοσθένη, Ίππαρχο, Πτολεμαίο, Υπατία, κ.α.) καλλιέργησε, ανέπτυξε και διέδωσε στα πέρατα του τότε γνωστού κόσμου, την τόσο όμορφη και αποκαλυπτική επιστήμη.

Cathar’s Spirit, ’12

Cathar’s Spirit, ’12

At last our clip from the Cathar’s Castles!
In april, it was intensive timelapsing for 6 days, in south of France, in the legendary Cathar country.
Here, there are many old castles from the XIIIe century.
The “behind the scene” video is here: vimeo.com/45588749
You can find Claire’s feedbacks about this legendary country in our website here menilmonde.com/2012/06/cathare/
and here menilmonde.com/2012/06/direction-le-sud/
The list of the castles is also here (english) : menilmonde.com/2012/07/video-chateaux-cathares/

The music was specially composed for us by Tony Rainy (french talented compositor)

Voici enfin notre clip sur les châteaux Cathares!
Nous y étions fin avril, donc ça commence à remonter!
Retrouvez toutes les spécificités sur notre blog menilmonde.com nous y avons consacré quelques articles et vous retrouverez la fiche technique du clip ici: menilmonde.com/2012/07/video-chateaux-cathares/
Et la video bonus est ici: vimeo.com/45588749
