BathTub Rubs

As we’ve said before we are still producing a 9 hour long video for a company who produce ‘Zen Coaching’ courses so again we have been playing with some creative ideas in our off time.

This is simply an idea Jon had while in the bath, we will use it as part of an upcoming video we are working on for a pitch to MTV in the near future.. more details on that to follow in the early stages of next year.

HOW WE DUN IT:
We basically set up the studio at Jon’s flat in Brighton and handheld a shot of the bubbles but made sure there was a couple of tracking points of high contrast (the plug hole) this will be useful in Mocha for after effects to use as a tracking point. we will be producing some new training videos on tracking and using mocha in the near future.. so look out for them.

Brighton Patch – Timelapse

Since the early 2000’s we have wanted to produce more time=lapse and integrate it into our work more, then in 2008 Bathtub by Keith Loutit was created and blew our ruddy socks off:

Since then he has released a series of new videos, each one as awesome and breath taking as the last.

Our office is based in Brighton (London by the sea some call it) so it would have been rude to not get out there in the sun and get some sexy time-lapse, we don’t have a Tilt-shift lens and don’t think the post production works as well so were happy to mess about with some straight forward time-lapse which we also used in a few of our local video productions.

We will be posting a lot more tutorials soon so please keep an eye out for Tilt-shift tutorials and Time-lapse tutorials when we get them up on our blog.
