Howdy doo my lovely long lost friendly fanatics,
Well, it has been quite some time since my last posting, I am sure you all were grateful for the Blight Break. While I was not posting stuff, I was using the time creating things. The collaborative performance titled “White Noise”, with the amazing clown Jef Johnson was an incredible experience. I am currently working on a demo reel for the project. Hopefully soon, I will be able to post it. I am editing down a tight 5 – 10 minute reel from about 7 hours of video footage, and it is proving to be quite a challenge.
In the meantime, I have been experimenting with an amazing little new camera I picked up a few weeks ago, called the Flip Video MinoHD. It is a little tiny high definition video camera smaller than my cell phone, that shoots beautiful video and has no moving parts to break. I went to Hershey Park last weekend and made a bunch of video tours of the park, including footage shot from the front car of four different roller coasters. I also picked up a mounting device to attach the camera to my bicycle, and I have shot a few video experiments from the handlebars of my bike. Check out the video clips on the Blight Blog:
