Video: Tycho – Adrift, directed by Joaquim

没有什么值得推荐的听的东西. 推荐一个Tycho – Adrift的视频. 由一位丹麦年轻人Joaquim制作, 文字记述的很让人充满联想. 建议观看于HD全屏下. 来源: Awx.lt

The 26th of December 2008, I visited my grandparents on Fanø – a tiny island in the southwestern part of Denmark. One morning it was especially freezing outside, and virtually everything was covered in beautiful ice crystals. I just HAD to capture it all, so I grabbed my Sony N1 point-and-shoot camera, and went outside on a journey through the breathtaking winter landscape. When I came back my fingers were almost completely numb, but it was worth it.

I shot everything in 16:4 wide screen format, which gives the images a sort of “movie-like” feel. I can definitely recommend experimenting with this format. It’s a nice change if you’ve been shooting 4:3 for too long.

Straight out of the camera the photos were too warm, so I did some little color correction in Photoshop to bring back that cold and slightly desolate atmosphere.

I made the slide show in After Effects. It’s got this very handy feature called Sequence Layers which basically arranges all the images that you’ve selected in you comp, and places them underneath each other. You can specify a certain amount of overlap and a simple cross-fade. On top of that, I added some film grain to the entire comp to make the images less static and more vivid. I’m not sure if the grain will show here on YouTube, but it sure looks great in After Effects :)

Tycho (aka. Scott Hansen) was kind enough to let me use the track “Adrift” to accompany the slide show. In my opinion Adrift is one of the best tracks he’s ever done. It’s got that distant and melancholic feel to it that I love so much. Check out his site at: http://blog.iso50.com – it’s a great source to new music and of course great graphic design.
