The Creators Project: Box (video)

Box explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera.

Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.

Time Lapse: Hectisch verkeer (video)

De Engelse fotograaf Rob Whitworth die in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (beter bekend als Saigon) maakte een time lapse van deze hectische stad.

In de time lapse video ‘Traffic in Frenetic HCMC’ heeft fotograaf Rob Whitworth de chaotische schoonheid van het verkeer in de Vietnamese miljoenenstad. In een periode van Mei tot November 2011 maakt Whitworth met zijn Nikon D7000 meer dan 10.000 foto’s in RAW om deze te verwerken in een time lapse video. Geïnspireerd door de film ‘Man With a Movie Camera’ uit 1929 en de manier waarop Dziga Vertov de camera hanteerde maakte Rob Whitworth deze time lapse van het hectische verkeer in Saigon.

#Timelapse Good Morning Chicago (video)

by Craig Shimala

June was the first month this year that I had no travel plans so I challenged myself to wake up everyday at around 5am to capture the sunrise on downtown Chicago. I’m pretty proud I was able to wake up 29 of the 30 days at such and early hour of the day. Each shot you see in the video is in sequential order. 9 of the 30 days Mother Nature did not cooperate and provided either rain or heavy overcast skies. As a result, those days were left out since the captured footage wasn’t much to look at.

I used two cameras with a number of different lenses. A Canon 7D and an old Canon Rebel directly connected to a laptop. Unfortunately, the Rebel had some dirty sensor issues so some shots are not perfect. The majority of the shots were taken every 5 to 10 seconds and then stitched together as a sequence using Quicktime Pro at 60 fps. The final edit was done in Sony Vegas Movie Studio.

I wish the final render was better. Too many random chunks of compression. Maybe my way of rendering the original QuickTime into a AVCHD Mpeg2 video was a horrible idea. It’s never let me down in the past. Any advice?

What’s next?
– I would like to setup a camera that is never touched and capture the exact same shot at the exact same settings every day.
– Another version I would like to setup at a different location in the city each day.
