A Nonlinear Rio Sampa Trip
Filmed on March/09/2006 with my old (and dead) Canon PowerShot A300 digital camera, during a flight from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo. I remember that i had a terrible hangover that day, almost stayed in bed. The song is Drala, from Glen Velez (i'm sure he don't mind that i used it : ).
And i edited it on Feb/13&14/2007 (yesterday and before, at night) with (the crappy) iMovie. Crappy because i realised during this edition that singleTrack editing is too limited. Example, the part that wents black (in 2min) is because i couldnt anchor the clips to the audio. So during the 'audio syncing' on the latter clips, it moved a little the backwards clip to the right, so i got a nice black gap there... terrible! Anyway, i'm trying to install Final Cut Pro here, hope it runs...
I used only the basic effects and transitions, and one that i specially love is the mirror effect. I've seen it many times, but one video that uses it the best (and yes, mine is a kind of homage to this) is the music video of Four Tet - She Moves She (see here or here). Mirror effect works very well for minimal music (i tried using other four tet, steve reich, but i preferred glen velez). Here is a screenshot of iMovie and its mirror effect:
This my first finished attempt to edit video and specially trying to sync it with the music. So i hope that with practice i can get my ideas into reality (and, of course, random beauties are also welcomed).
PS: Another related video i've made is Brasilia 360º (unedited but very nice).
