Tilt-Shift Video Trial

4 05 2009

I’ve been meaning to give tilt-shift video a try for a while now. Click on the picture below to view an example of tilt-shift photography.

Since my school has an annual food fair in May and I have access to the roof, I thought I’d have a go. This video is only a minute long (with titles) and I used 243 photos to produce it. I used Tilt-ShiftMaker as it was the easiest and fastest way. I imported each photo individually and then put them in iMovie where I shortened the time of the photos to .15 seconds. I then merged the photos as DV and sped up the time slightly. video link here via YouTube or view with better quality here via Vimeo.

    Nice work on this Frank. Worth every bit of no less than four times mentioned during a full faculty meeting. Music aside how much time do you think you put into making this? I’m curious about the medium and how labor intensive it is.

    I had to import each photo individually so that was the most time consuming. All in all I’d say anywhere between 4-6 hours on photos alone. However that website is much faster than doing it in Photoshop. I wanted to use all 500 photos but…needless to say I got a little impatient. It was a trial test and it’s a little more difficult with people. I also need a better lens to zoom back more. Zoom back more? Is that correct? Lastly my access on the roof was limited to angle choice as well. There’s a tilt-shift group on Flickr that has some good photo examples which are worth checking out.
    I am considering mashing it up now too.
