Ant asked me to do something with the Bring Your Own Beamer: Birmingham photos. These were his instructions.
* 1 minute long
* 640 x 480
* No audio
* Jump straight into photos i.e. no title screens or fading
* Keep effects to a minimum
* Make it awesome
I sat on it for a week and eventually, on the cusp of the deadline I insisted he give me, came up with the above.
There are 300-ish photos running at 30fps. Every 10 seconds they look and zoom in to 400%. I guess it evokes the experience of BYOB where you can get up close to the projections and itâ€™s all a bit overwhelming. Or maybe I was just desperate.
If I didnâ€™t mention it already, Ant and I have agreed that weâ€™re going to do this again and this time Iâ€™m taking the lead. Given my current workload that means itâ€™ll happen late summer, early Autumn at this rate. Anyone interested in hosting it or partnering with us (like Flatpack and Vivid did) please get in touch.
