May 28, 2009
The producer of the PBS series American Experience, Rob Rapley, sent me a low res version of the sunset time lapse film which will probably be used in the Wyatt Earp show they are currently working on. Here it is:


Pretty cool. He wanted ominous and he got it. This was shot on a still camera, hooked up to a Mac hard drive and clicking off three shots per second. It's all on the computer. Amazing.

The first sequence (see map on yesterday's post) had a jerky quality and Rob speculated the hard drive wasn't processing the photos fast enough and was dropping one or two images here and there. By the end of the day Rob had all the bugs worked out and it moves seamlessly.

Tweaked the Big Billy this morning. Kathy thinks there are problems with the hands and a certain face (Billy's). May keep working on it until I ruin it. Ha.

"Almost nothing works the first time it's attempted. Just because what you're doing does not seem to be working, doesn't mean it won't work. It just means that it might not work the way you're doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn't have an opportunity."
