Same Place, Different Light

Last week’s blog came from the first five minutes of a forty minute movie.  This week’s from the last five.  The Dog walker, frisbee player and romantic couple referenced last week all make their appearances.  So do the surfers who probably look a lot like dots in the middle of the screen when viewed on the smallest possible screen.

In short the picture has changed and changed materially since the first blog entry.  Getting us to the heart of SlowTV.  Without any cuts or pans a pretty picture evolves, inviting your attention while tolerating the lack of it.   It is a comfort to watch and  pleasant to return to if you need or want to step away.

If Santa were to provide some compositional skill, a better camera, the technology to distribute it and some Christmas magic SlowTV might eventually cross over from screen saver to art.   A boy can dream.

The decision was made to leave in the sound of the waves even though it meant leaving in some wind noise.  Sound is so often the tail that wags the dog.  When I switch out of the library and start with new video a wind sock will be added to the travel bag.

In the meantime I am proud to announce the rough cut of this year’s Christmas movie is complete.  Disks have been ordered and mailing lists assembled.  It will be a SlowTV Christmas.  Around here it already is.
