fourScreen by James Lashmar preview - ‘Four Tet - Circling’ music video
This is a preview of my final project based around the concept of Holism, essentially trying to visualise Holism within music in relation to my dissertation, which can be found here : http://www.scribd.com/doc/91366611/James-Lashmar-The-Evolution-of-Music-Video
Created using Processing, Cinema4d, Premiere, After Effects, Mocha Pro and Ableton Live.
The project is around 95% complete and has a few issues to iron out:
Firstly and most noticeably a sync issue between clients, allowing the screens to play out of time.
At the time of shooting not all of the 3D frames had rendered.
A couple of 3D things did not render (most noticably one of the strings on the left screen), i’ll need to try fit these into a future composite.
Also need to fully composite, this was VERY quickly put together.
Camera tracking / visualisation needs flipping horizontally and also tweaking to give a nicer effect.
A full render producing for each machine. Currently at half resolution using draft settings.
The project in total came in at just under 82,000 frames at 5120x720, that’s 4x wider than 720p HD!
Usage rights to ‘Circling’ have been granted by Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet for usage of the track in this project.
Visuals were all created by myself.
Talent : Louise Fisher & Hattie Scanlan
Processing code written by myself and my tutor Spencer Roberts
Talent and install filmed by myself using a Canon 5D MKII.
DANDAD Moving Image Brief
I finished this a few weeks ago and have been waiting to show the world since! Now that the entry date has passed here it is.
The brief demands your idea of a creative station focussed around their desktops. In isolation HP desktops are a simple box, but when used with software providers and groups of creative’s, they become something more.
My first thoughts were what are the things that designers can’t live without; coffee, sketchbooks, wacoms and pens. Then I had the idea of the cloud and the thought of ideas coming to life when people are connected and empowered with software resulting in this explosion of colour.
