School started back up and its time to get the ball rolling on Elämä once again. This past Tuesday the class presented their projects, including myself. I was able to show four of the 31 timelapses that are usable from the week long trip (personally I think they turned out pretty good), as well as my moco rig. I meant to show a few photos I took during the trip, but in my usual fashion I forgot. However, I will include them at the end of this blog post to redeem my forgetfulness.
Beyond that, there is a gray area in regard to the slow motion aspect of the film, that being that CCS wound up not purchasing a RED Epic so I would have to rent one. The problem with that is that it costs around $1300/day to rent an Epic. Thankfully though, I was informed by my instructor that there is a small…possibility that I might be able to rent one quite cheap through someone he knows (no name dropping here). Needless to say, I am ecstatic at the possibility of that because the slow motion is such a key part of the film and I don’t think I’d like the finished film as much without it. So hopefully that can get worked out!
Other than that, I’ll keep moving forward.
Enjoy some pictures now!
