I got into it accidently years, and years, and years ago. Two early heroes of mine were Craig Charles and John Cooper Clarke. Craig Charles did a piece called 'I Doubt It. Don't You' on a live broadcast friday or saturday night show. I was gobsmacked at the immediacy of his words and his address to the world around him. The piece focused on the Toxtheth situation and racism. John Cooper Clarke. Bit of an acquired taste this bloke. Mad as a hatter, but loveable. Used to tour festivals and had a great English (Manchester, I think) accent.
Then of course there was Spike Milligan. This man expanded the whole notion of poetry by writing some of the finest poetic comedy ever. Need I say any more?
However, the timelapse was for me truly beautiful.
I really like time-lapse footage. It's great how setting a camera to take a picture say every 180 seconds over a 16 hour period when run back in realtime seems to say so much. Clouds rolling by fast. Tides rising and falling. Flowers blooming. People coming and going. I've loved time-lapse since I first saw it used in some goofy movie I can't even remember the name of. But it showed the classic, 'hands on a clock speeded up
' to mark the passing of a longer time.
Great tool in drama is time-lapse. We've other stuff I must get uploaded to the domain. If there's anything in there that you like, other than pieces we're using, you'd be welcome to use them in return for plugging the work we do...
Caught some cracking time-lapse yesterday of all the snow melting on distant roofs. Will try and get that up soon...
