10 Seconds

10 Seconds 2010-03-07 from Kurt Lorenz on Vimeo.

This is a video in my series of videos entitled 10 Seconds. The plan is to take 10 seconds of video everyday for 365 days.

My hope is to learn more about the process of filming and color grading/post production.

Family + Croquet by the river...

This was more about getting a cool shot. Simple post: curves, HueSat, vignette.

The Patience of a Saint I - by Carl Sagan's Ghost

Recording artist Daniel Davis, a.k.a. Carl Sagan's Ghost is a fellow electronic musician and Seattleite. We met on Twitter when I signed up for his MAAP: Excursion One (Multiple Artist Ambient Project). I was a few days too late to be included in the first round of that project but we hooked up in person for the Ghostly 10 Year show at Decibel Festival. I was invited by Daniel to participate in a (January 2010?) live performance of his forthcoming album At The End It All... featuring The Patience of a Saint I, II & III.

I have offered to compile some live visuals for the performance and below is one of my first layers...

Eye

Shot with a Canon PowerShot SD630 on Macro. Edited in iMovie '09. Original Music/Sound (by Kurt Lorenz) made completely on the iPhone using BeatMaker, NLogSynth, and iGendyn. Each app was recorded directly into an audio channel in Ableton Live and some basic mixing/compression applied.

Bees

Sunday afternoon in my sunny Seattle garden. Listen close, slow-mo bee sounds and bird song, and plenty of slow-mo camera noise too! I was really planning on composing a nice haunting melody to go with these great visuals but the raw sound played back at 25% the original speed was just too cool to mess with.

A group of children, all wearing ape masks, ride their bicycles to the park for a picnic. Along the way, all but one are eliminated for violating basic bike safety rules.
