bike winter release

I've finished my little winter bike video I've been working on the last couple of weeks, I hope you like it!

bike winter from Dada Factory on Vimeo.

Ever since I saw The Restless Debt of Third World Beauty I wanted to practice doing a music-video style edit, and in my recent trip to New York I spent a great deal of time dreaming up shots and generally itching to make a movie.

I wanted to make a video that summed up the craziness/fun of biking in the winter, but most of the blizzard footage I got was pretty boring/unusable, and I didn't feel up to filming on the worst days. So this is the mixed result, it was good fun, and I wish I had time to make a similar one every week. It's a little shout out to the people I love in this city, the activity I love so much, and the thrill of riding up a steep hill in the sunset.

Keep in touch for The Tale of Don Giovanni, That Indomitable Hipster, hopefully being filmed this October.

dope! especially love the time lapse footage. it need de-interlacing though, that'd get rid of the annoying horizontal lines.

Davey D said...

I totally agree Jake, do you know how to do that when exporting from final cut? It's not interlaced in the initial footage, only on the upload.... Glad you like it.

Esther said...
