Immediately upon seeing wirrow's gorgeous “mountain tops are lifting,” I couldn't get the idea of doing it in stained glass out of my mind (I also thought it could be cool as a quilt... anyone want to take that one on?). Anyways, I most desperately wanted it hanging in my window. And now it does:) And I only bled a very little bit in the process (glass, as one might expect, is rather sharp (as are the edges of the copper foil tape, which was more of a surprize)).
Making of video coming soon! is here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/494472
This piece is inspired by Lawrie Brewster's illustration Joe VS the Copyright Bots. You can see it here; http://hitrecord.org/records/488242 . Originally, I wanted to score a battle scene, but it turned out to be a pre-battle theme. Maybe for both sides? You tell me...
I added LizRECord's blackbook illustration, because a similar image was also in my head at some point writing the piece... it came in toward the end.
The prince threw a ball to find himself a good catch.
My girlfriend and I love Seattle and knew we had to try to do something when we heard about the HitRecord show coming to our city and Regular Joe’s requests for what makes Seattle special to you.The problem was, we only had a week before the show when we found out about it and had no equipment with which to shoot.
We decided to do what we dubbed “Seattle Blitz”, or “Drive-by Seattle” (we couldn’t decide). Armed with only a shaky as hell iPhone, we had about six hours to shoot and in that time we tried to get as much footage of the countless places in Seattle that make it special to us. We wanted to show how Seattle truly is one of the most beautiful cities in the country if not the world. So we just hopped in the car and hit record. Every single shot was taken in the city of Seattle in those six hours except the first two shots from the airplane which was at that moment flying right over the Fremont/Wallingford/U-District area of north Seattle a couple days before our car shots. We had a lot of fun hitting all the coolest parts of the city. It would be awesome for someone to do something cool with this footage! If only I had had a Canon 5D, tripod and slider with me this week...
when I found katasul's "we were sailing the seas", I knew I wanted to make a makebelieve world where the little boys could sail off into dreamland in their little tin boat. (all the resources just fell into place so easily for this remix. hitRECord is a treasure trove.)
