"In 1903, Olivia Wright was the first to pilot the great grasshoppers of North America."
While taking my kids to the playground, I shot live-action footage of a grasshopper, using my iPhone.
This is one of many short animated clips I’ve made for fun. I might continue this particular clip as an Insect Aviation series… who knows :)
It was my first project using TV Paint animation software. (No rotoscoping used. Where’s the fun in that?!) My work-in-progress can be found on my blog: animatingforfun.com.

Gender Swap is an experiment that uses themachinetobeanother.org/ system as a platform for embodiment experience (a neuroscience technique in which users can feell themselves like if they were in a different body). In order to create the brain ilusion we use the immersive Head Mounted Display Oculus Rift, and first-person cameras. To create this perception, both users have to syncronize their movements. If one does not correspond to the movement of the other, the embodiment experience does not work. It means that both users have to constantly agree on every movement they make. Through out this experiment, we aim to investigate issues like Gender Identity, Queer Theory, feminist technoscience, Intimacy and Mutual Respect.

A surreal look at the streets of Tokyo, Japan.
This effect was created by blending frames of video together to simulate exposure times longer than actually possible because of the limitations of capturing 24 frames per second.
Most video is shot at at least 24fps or more, so the shutter of the camera cannot be open longer than 1/24th of a second, if it was you would be unable to capture enough frames for continuous motion, OR it would be motion but not in real time, such as a time-lapse.
Because of this limitation an entire branch of photography has been closed off to moviemakers, that is “long exposure photography”. Long Exposures offer many creative applications, such as blurred motion, light trails, and even can be used to make undesirable moving objects disappear.
What is done here is taking frames from video captured at 24fps with a 1/50th shutter speed and blending them together using Adobe Photoshop. The final product is a video that’s still played at 24fps but with a 1 second shutter speed.
The effect is eerie, causing things that do not move to remain sharp, but anything with motion to blur. The faster something moves to more faint it becomes. Where this is best shown is when something changes speed such as the shot of the man stopping in the street to check his phone, he almost appears out of nowhere, but when he walks off you can see his shape fade away.
Shot in Tokyo Japan in the Shibuya district with a 5D Mk 3.
Thanks to Russell Brown for letting me help in Japan.
The track is “Patches of Godlight” by Standby Red 5
Happy new year everyone!
Thought I would put together some of my aerial footage of 2013.
All shots were on the North Shore of Oahu, Pipeline.
More winter swells to come!

A visual response to Carl Sagan’s famed ‘Pale Blue Dot’ monologue, where he muses on our planet’s appearance in a photograph taken by the Voyager 1 space probe. The most distant photograph ever taken of Earth.
This was a personal project, designed and created in After Effects with extensive sound work created to sit along side the music from ‘Cosmos’ and the spoken word from Sagan.
Thanks for taking the time to view and all the amazing feebdack!
