Swimming Dots

In a follow up video I used the dots that were punched out the pastel colored sheets of paper. I sprinkled the dots into a large goldfish bowl filled with water. To add more light, I placed flash lights aimed at the bowl from the side. Then I shot video using my flipcam.

To make sure more dots appeared in the frame, I added more water to the bowl and stirred the water with my fingers. Eventually a large number of the dots circled the bowl. After editing the video in iMovie, I uploaded the footage to YouTube. Finally in Audio Swap, I searched for mellow music to reinforce the idea of the dots swimming.

Yesterday I created an interior inside a shoebox. I cut windows on the top, sides and front of the box. With a hole puncher I punched holes through pastel colored pieces of paper. Inside the box I taped them to the bottom and sides of the box. Then I then taped the box to a "lazy susan." I taped my flipcam inside and spun the box.

When I finished filming, I made some finishing touches in iMovie before uploading the video to YouTube. I then used YouTube's audio swap area to add music that matched the length of the video. So far I'm getting very positive feedback about my choice of music. The artist is DJ Reset and the music is "High Speed Chase (Interlude)."

Liquid in Motion

A while back I filmed a novelty toy in action. Recently I was playing with the video and this is the result. The music is Apple's iLife "Progressive House."
