I have now uploaded my experimental 1995 film "Silly Billy" starring my infant son, fireworks and various bands such as Shadowy Man From A Shadowy Planet. I have retained the original 1995 edit reflecting my then obsessions with film grain, macro body parts, explosive color and time exposure. My 2010 edit involved a switch of two musical pieces.

or

Technical:

I utilized the German Leicina (Leica) Special Super 8 camera with the superb optics of the Schnieder 10mm Cinegon Macro.

The combination of manual time exposure ( 3 seconds per frame) in conjunction with interval of 0.5 seconds between frames produced what I called the Francis Bacon Screaming Pope effect. I shot close to 300-500 frames that evening of various musicians at Sneaky Dee's long ago. The organic "fluid-ness" was produced by the long exposures which froze people in approximately three positions interconnected my "streaks" in each frame. The same technique was utilized regarding the fireworks but in glorious Kodachrome. My infant son was a labour of love captured by handheld macro shots.

The slow motion effect was achieved by setting the transfer playback at approximately 5 frames per second in the film/digital transfer bay.

ENCODING:

Codec = MainConcept AVC ACC MPEG4
VBR = 20Mbps
PIXEL = 1.00000 (square)
