On my way to YK2-X

Finally on my way to Santa Cruz for the Y2kx festival!
Events so far…
Valet parking at airport didn’t show up, don’t use Flight Park!!! Buy luckily a very nice lady from VIP parkering took my car… Wondering if I will see it again?
Suitcase was overweight AND my guitar was deemed extra, so i was supposed to pay extra, but there was such a long Q at the paying desk they said it was OK!

HD Art Film

SOGNSVANN

HD Film
This is a film I made at Sognsvann in Oslo. The music comes from “Fish!” on Synesthetic Recordings and the track is called “Goldfish”.
I have been interested in Timelapse filming since seeing Koyanisquatsi in the 80’s, and I have used the technique many times since then, both in my art films and for work.
See the companion film to this film, COLD. Same location, shooting style, totally different time of year.
It was shot on a Panasonic AG-HVX200, which I love. I feel I have only just scratched the surface of what I can do with this camera. Slow motion and timelapse are a doddle, and the colour settings are scary. Wish it had a better on-board mic, but…

THE BEAST

Very Lo fi Film
Film made on my phone, while on holiday in Ebeltoft, Denmark. It depicts the savage and frightening beast that roamed the area at night.

Really… the film is inspired by the recording I made on my H4 recorder one night in Denmark… I heard a rustling and a growl, and ran like hell!!! The recording is elsewhere on this website.
