An experiment, a Flip camera demo, a glamour shot of my Jaguar - this edit is all of those things. I'm starting to feel energized about the idea of producing a more ambitious, stylized, narrative short film. Meaning that a years worth of work could easily go into a single project and allow me to draw on the variety of creative and technical experiences that I've had in just the last several years.
What I did here with this winter drive test was actually play with the way I could mount my Flip Ultra HD to various points on my car. This included the dash, along the edge of my wheel well, and to the front of the grill.
For now, I find it encouraging just to see what I can do using my own resources. Tests like these are really just ways to find inspiration and push myself to tackle even more ambitious and creative shooting techniques that just weren't possible for the low budget indie filmmaker 5 years ago. I love the idea of merging a professional look with the spirit of an amateur shoot.
