It’s not quite the ds106 Speed Up Your Work Day assignment since I only grabbed 1 minute of video, but it was fun to play with speed up effects:
I grabbed this from the Dedon Road overpass of I-95 during yesterday’s bike ride. It would have been better if I had propped the camera on the edge, but I’m no a bit wary of dropping my iphone over edges. I had hoped for a shot that could seemlessly loop, but my positioning was not quite steady.
In iMovie, after detaching the audio, I sped the clip up 2000%, from 57 seconds down to 1, then simply copied the clip in the timeline and pasted it about 25 more times. It has the “dream” effect on the clip which gives it that burred edge look.
I have no idea why I did this, but standing on that bridge, 25 miles down a country road, the rat race looked a lot more fun than the view in the car.
