New video! I have to admit I really love making these videos, short clips from wherever I can manage to record them. My previous two from India found a lot of love from my readers and I was excited to make a new one at some point to share. This time around I had access to a high definition camera for the first time ever, a Canon 5D MarkII and I am thrilled with the results and can not wait to eventually have one of my own.
On a random grey day here in my apartment in Seoul big snowflakes started to slowly drift down from the sky and so I took advantage of being seven floors up and captured video of the snow falling from a number of different angles and this ended up being my favorite, very straight forward and subtle. The snow drifting through the focal point halfway to the street which is blurred in a wash of bokeh below and during this take one single person wandered through the shot and ended up acting as a ghost in my snowy mini movie. Another hypnotic moment slightly altered to bring a bit of mystery to the table and I hope you all enjoy it. You can see it in full HD over on the Vimeo page, apparently I’m not allowed to embed HD video unless I am a plus member I think.
Edit: Also, on a related note, there was a video from a while back made by YoungDoo where she reversed the fall of the snow and I loved it at the time and I was reminded of it after I made this and posted it and I wanted to add link to it for those of you who liked this video I think you will love hers as well, just beautiful!
Music is from Four Tet, a great song from his wonderful new album.
