Well would you look at that? For Pete’s sake it’s Friday!

Well don’t just sit there let’s look at the videos, holy Hannah!

[adjusts tie…]

Here we go.


“This is a companion piece to my Fall time-lapse from a few years ago. I wanted it to be the polar opposite of the first one. Not just the Fall vs Spring. But wide shots vs close ups, everything in focus vs shallow depth of field, very cuty vs one shot, contemporary music vs classical, static camera vs moving camera.”

For comparison, here is Fall.

His work is very accomplished. Great composition. Stillness. I love it.

Yuasa Town: The Birthplace of Soy Sauce

“Yuasa, a small coastal town in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan, is a fishing port and the producer of one of Japan’s most well known mandarin oranges, the Arida mikan. But a stroll through the traditional streets, including the only stretch of the famous Kumano Kodo pilgrim route that runs through the center of a town, takes you back to an age before westernization, when Yuasa was a vibrant hub of gastronomy in Japan. For it was here, in the 13th century, that soy sauce as we know it was first established and produced, and even now the streets are rich with the smells of fermenting soy sauce, still produced exactly the same way it was more than 750 years ago.”

Love it.

Willy wonka on saxophone and drums

A live interpretation of dialogue via jazz instrumental.

Much like harmonizator, but a lot more fierce with the drums and sax.

LEGO Printer

“This is a printer built using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 set (31313). It uses a gel pen to draw text at different sizes and the EV3 logo, but I plan to expand it in the future to print more things, as well as process input to print on demand.”

Technically this is a “plotter”, but either way: fantastic!

Bonus Video!

Musicless Music Video: a-ha – Take On Me

This sort of reminds me of the movie Delicatessen for the way the characters non-verbally express themselves. (And / or several old NFB animated shorts.)

Great stuff.

And there they are. Look at them! Your Friday Videos! 🙂

We’ll be back next week. In the meantime have a great weekend!
