Lights, Camera… Action!

Just a quickie that i cobbled together to capture just one of the SL9B exhibits – finding myself at the celebration site with relatively low numbers of visitors and practically no lag, it was an ideal opportunity to take advantage of the moment and have a bit of fun.

This was my first outing using Camtasia Recorder, and i was pretty impressed with the ease of use and the options available – i think it’ll be my tool of choice for future outings, although perhaps when i have the chance to take my time and not struggle with the inevitable jerkiness and difficulties that an event like SL’s birthday presents.

Sometimes there’s a piece of music that i want to use, yet despite my best efforts, it seems that nobody else in the entire world has an easily accessible copy that i can share with you. This was the case with one instalment of /#: Apocalypse // – there was a piece of music i desperately wanted to accompany the episode but it was nowhere to be found – of course, it might have helped if i knew the title or the artist! There was only one thing for it, make a copy and a quick video slideshow to go with it. Apologies for the poor audio quality and for the rather slapdash nature of the video, but it’s ok for half an hour’s work, i think!

Every good movie has a spinoff. i did toy with the ideal of ‘Soul Mods II: The Reckoning (This time it’s personal!)’ but, somehow, that didn’t seem quite right. Instead, i decided to give Albion his own blockbuster, (i’ll have a P, please Bob), since he managed to contrive to be absent on both occasions the movie was being filmed!

Here it is… the trailer for the much touted ‘Soul Mods: The Movie’.

This was my first collaboration, the brainchild of Slate McCleod, who did a sterling job of editing together my footage to produce an end result that feels completely authentic for the Northern Soul era. All credit to Slate, a first class job.

A little homage to ‘Life on Mars’ , made to celebrate the opening of The Killing Moon as an ad-hoc music venue – a great night was had by all!

16th February 2011
This little project sprang out of a wonderful evening’s dancing at The Killing Moon – it was such an enjoyable evening, it seemed right thing to do to record it for posterity!

My second attempt at machinima. This was inspired by a chance remark made by someone one night at Soul Mods – i forget what was actually said; something about the early days of sl… which got me thinking. What would sl have looked like in the good old days of steam power and the Empire?

This is a short extract from my first attempt at machinima – entirely without finesse, or for that matter, any clue about what i was doing, (some would say i haven’t progressed very far since then!). My poor editing is matched only by my equally poor bike handling skills… and i wasn’t even wearing a helmet!
