Entry #1

The first entry is the first test. The test took me to long. About 3 hours. This had to do with conceptional problems and program crashes. So in the end its too long for all the topics to be covered in any detail. So I call this a bulletin mix. Something I will do when I have enough time and too much to show. Short bulletins of a couple of topics:

• USA used tricks to get allies against North Korea
• Wisconsin Researchers Create Nano-Bio-Circuits
• W3D printer to churn out copies of itself
• Revolution in the Digital Rights Management Age - Code v.2
• wave vessel: audio visualization
• Iran Has 12 Strategic Cruise Missiles
• Announcment of vjtorrents.com
• bicycle wheel with persintent of vision and message

audio provided by
the sunny sunday afternoon track that I found through the creative commons site for todays entry comes from
Incidental Fusion and is called groovin-afternoon.

This is pretty cool and funny, sifting and recontextualizing video information, much like what early rap did with music. What software do you use to make these?

Thanks, thats exactly my thought (with the recontextulising). I hope to evolve to something more storytelling over time. I am very eager to do the first weekly. I think those will be VERY cool.
As for software used. Entry #1 was done 100% in Apples Motion 1.0 Software. The Vampire Bat was done in Adobe After Effects. Motion was crashing too often on me - sadly After Effects was not much better in the crashing department. Motion was faster in processing and rendering - but highly unstable during composition. After Effects was 100% stable through composition but highly unstable for the rendering. Don΄t know maybe something is wrong with my machine :/ It still takes too much time...

Definitely enjoyed that...great editing job, really looking forward to seeing what else you come up with...definitely need more experimentation out there...it's always nice.

it takes time to figure out your process.
it'll take at least 5 videos to really get it down.
im subscribed ...and look forward to watching.
