Made a little timelapse film using my iPhone and the top deck of a surprisingly empty 207 bus from Shepherd's Bush to Acton. I'm teaching myself Final Cut Pro using my typical "learn by doing” method. As such, I have discovered my default approach to editing video is the same as playing the guitar. USE ALL THE PLUGINS.
I'm rather enamoured of the way the neon comic rendering attempts to handle the bloom from raindrops on the window glass - keep an eye on headlights/traffic lights.
The music was rapidly composed and performed (mainly improvised filter sweeps) for the video, just so I can get a handle on scoring using Ableton Live - something I'd like to do more of.
Currently listening to "Cannonball" - Tune-Yards.
Currently reading "Four Lost Cities: A Secret History of the Urban Age" - Annalee Newitz.
