BC Tourism Mock-up

Just playing around with some of the footage I’ve been accumulating. One day I’ll drop the big video on you all, but i’m going to take my time and wait until the end of 2019, so I can continue to get better at shooting & editing. For now, here’s a taste – check the video…

 

Trial & Error

In my last test, i noticed some problems with ‘jumping’ in my horizontal pan. Not sure what caused that, but last night’s test demonstrated it’s not an issue with the gear – thank god!

Once I can get over a lot of the technical hurdles, then I can focus on creativity and composition. That combined with the cooperation of the season’s weather and I should have some solid footage for the personal 2-year video project that I am working on!

Failed attempt:

Resolved:

Excuse Me!

Last night’s shoot was pretty cool… i found some random pylons right near where I wanted to shoot (which was nearly in the middle of the road on water street) and I was able to make a little safe zone for my tripod and slider to take up what is technically NOT a right had lane. Couldn’t have been any more perfect. I got a lot of sideways looks from the traffic, but even buses and firetrucks were able to pass with ample room! lol.

 

False Creek

I grew up (for the most part) in False Creek and I’ve always been drawn to it as a place of peace and serenity. Lately, I find that it’s just busy AF, (especially after the seawall renovation), but I still find moments to myself down there in the early hours and less desirable weather.

Not sure if you’ll be able to see it, (at 3 seconds) but I actually appear in my own timelapse. I walked onto the bridge to help a small group of tourists from India take a photo of themselves.
