Hi there, remember me?

I've got a new video up on my site and I figured you guys would be interested in checking it out.

All feedback welcome.

Muse!!! That's a great song!

The video is really cool. My favorite part was that with the trains, and how the camera tilted every time a train came. :)

One thing I noticed, standing out in the cold for long periods of time, is that bridges really rock a lot simply from the traffic passing underneath. You can really see the camera shaking in the timelapse.

And those trains are quite powerful, both with the wind they produce and the vibrations through the ground.

Not when you consider that it's over 4 mintes of better-than-DVD-quality.

now, just being nitpicky here, if you have better-than-dvd quality and no one has anything better than dvd available, is the quality wasted?

the video was pretty cool though..

Dude, a DVD is only 720x480 resolution. My monitor is 1280 x 1040.
And if we're going on the "it's not burned media thing," HDDVD and BlueRay both output at 1920x1080.

now THAT'S nitpicky. ;)

yes it is harisenbon.. it's also nerdy.. lol

keatonatron, when you did the ring video where you were not allowed to edit it, how mnay times did you roll the ring around trying to get it to go places before you actually shot the footage? that was a pretty slick idea ..

Most of the time it wasn't that hard. The part where it falls on the street, though, took about 7 practice-drops and 4 rewind-and-rerecords to get a shot that worked. (we could record over what we already had, we just couldn't put the footage in a computer to clean it up)

Beautiful video, had to watch it about 3 times because of how entrancing it was. Great music, set to the video well...excellent job. I am a huge fan of urban culture and lifestyle, and my desire to visit or maybe live in Japan has increased exponentially after watching this video. Thanks.
I want a clever signature, but I spent all my time trying to come up with a clever post!

Whenever I see vehicles moving endlessly on a busy road, a continuous stream of people walking up and down the streets, I can’t stop recollecting memories at places during my business trip. Viewing the reversing part, it brings me to a moment of thought --- sometimes, I wish times could just reverse back to my youth age, where I just could enjoy my studying, no other worries. Better still, I wish I could stop the clock .... so many things ahead waiting, yet I have so little time, I am feeling the fast-paced pressure --- AH, GIVE ME A BREAK!

Fortunately, there's this sweet little forum here that I can relax and enjoy reading and such.

Btw nice work!
