The Works Gone Wild

 

This is just a quick little video experiment with Adobe Premiere, a piece of software I will be spending a lot of time with in the near future.

Shot with my DSLR, what I like about this video is the extraordinary talent, that is to say the music, lyrics, and performance of Mike McDonald, the sound

recording, the color rendition, and when I am on it and not distracted, the relative smoothness of my video monopod.  What I do not like so much is the lack of

smoothness and stability in my framing, the challenge of a day lit stage, and my resorting to effects to jazz it up (although my son really digs the lightning).

I tried to be sparing and respectful of both thetalent and the audience in my limited and hasty post-processing.  Also, the video is much crisper and HD on my computer, so I think I need to

upload a file sized to suit WordPress parameters to avoid all this shitty loss of quality to compression.

More from the Backwater


I feel that adding more Backwater images to this blog might be overkill, but I really loved this production and hope to see it again or see similar productions that combine theatre, dance, music, and visual media into something truly powerful and original.

Good Women Being Great

The innovative core of the Good Women Dance Collective perform Distaff at the Expanse Movement Arts Festival.  When my son decides to allow it,  I have been working through the edit of all the great images I had the fortune of capturing at this years festival.  While working this morning, I discovered this rather compelling portrait from their Expanse set.
