Here’s a fun and cartoon like Hawaii time lapse video I shot during my stay on the North Shore of oahu in August, featuring Captain Carl the Sea Cat (R.I.P)
Waimea Bay is a beautiful North Shore Beach with wide stretches of sand to sunbathe and picnic. During the summer, the waves of Waimea actually subside making the waters suitable for swimming. A rock outcropping in the bay is a popular spot for locals to climb and jump off of, but this can be dangerous and is not advised. Also please heed all postings and lifeguard warnings. Leave the dangerous big waves of Waimea to the pros. Located on the legendary North Shore, Waimea Bay was an influential surf spot during the dawn of big wave surfing in the 1950’s. Adventurous surfers began to challenge the powerful winter waves of Waimea (as well as Makaha Beach on the west side) giving birth to the big wave-riding phenomenon.
Here’s a tilt shift video I shot with the Canon s95 that shows what they call “miniature” effect – which is really like a fake tilt shift that would othewise be done in post – most likely in After Effects.
There is a time lapse feature as part of the effect that lets you choose 5X 10X or 20X (1.5, 3 or 6 fps respectively).
This was take near Zilker Park in Austin
Here’s a music video I recently produced for bassist Dean Peer from his album Airborne.
The track is called 1 Speed, and it has everything you’d want in video: exploding rockets, confused cosmonauts, underwater air guitar and Walter Cronkite eating experimental space food.
I also had the pleasure of shooting the photos for Airborne:
