Smashing.

Well this is different. Today i slowed something down instead of speeding it up. I think it looks cool. Although, when i played it back on the camera it looked terrible. I'm learning not to trust my camera. It lies and makes me think i've ruined the shot. but i hadn't.

If you're wondering i threw golf balls through the window. I didnt shoot it with a gun or something. Although, I think i could make a great short movie using the same effect. Yeah. I wanna shoot a short movie this summer. Im not that sure what the plot will be. But i have an idea i wanna work on.

Spaceman

This probably doesnt make any sense. Oh well. It's not meant to. I love this song and i will make a much better video for it one day. I just think you could do alot with it.


Click here for the quicktime version.


yeah, I changed the song a little. I was trying to make it more gritty, but instead i made it faster. I was actually gonna have white noise in the background. But that didnt really work.

Challege Ian #1

This is the first Challege Ian. I only show one challege in this as it goes on for quite long. Also Warning: This might make you feel sick...


Click here for the quicktime version.


The quicktime version will be up soonish.

I'll make a form for next weeks questions to be submitted. It'll probably be easier.

Challege Ian #1 Challege's Needed.

So today is the first Challege Ian. So i thought it might be kinda wise to post this, so you know what the hell you have to do.

Here's how it works.

1. You submit 3 challenges of varrying degree (easy, moderate, and extreme)
2. I'll choose how far I'm are willing to go for the challenge (by choosing 1, 2, or 3)
3. I do the challenge.
4. if i do not complete the challenge...there has to be some sort of consequence...but I'm not sure what that could be. (comment with ideas for that)

I wanna say a big thanks to Josh Leo for helping me with pretty much everything on this idea. (the intro, the basic out rules and so on) he rocks!

Email in your challeges HERE

A PSP Review...

So i wasnt going to do this, as i thought it was like showing off. But i just can get over how good this thing is. Also i didnt know what to make a video on and i have long to film this. So this is it.


Click here for the quicktime version.


Give it a few minutes for the quicktime video to be uploaded.

Yeah, My camera was acting stupid when i was filming it. So that's why i say a bunch of things that dont make sense. oh well.

I'll probably cover this more on my blog, (the link is up the top of the site) But here's some points i wanna make on the PSP.

The Upsides:

1. It's slick and stylish.
2. It's pretty much PS2 graphics. So you'll be taken back by how good the games look on it.
3. Watching videos on it is pretty amazing.
4. You can use as an MP3 player.
5. You can view pictures you took on it. (it doesnt have a camera...yet.)
6. The battery is pretty damn good. It lasted me 8 hours of game play today. (the first charge only took an hour and a half)

The downsides:

1. Fingerprints. You can't help but get finger prints all over it and they make it look a mess when the sun hits it.
2. The screen is really refective. So on a really sunny day you cant see the screen unless your in a shaded area. It's pretty much a mirror.
3. You have to buy the cable that you need to put mp3s, videos and images on it seperately.

That's all i can think of so far.

Full Moon

I have filmed Ask Ian. I'll put it up later or tomorrow i guess. It's just annoying as it takes a while to copy to the computer then longer to save and then convert. Oh, this is the last Ask Ian too. More about that when the video is posted. You can still email in ask ian questions. but i'll answer them by email instead of weekly videos. Now for a lame video:

Click here for the quicktime version.


In other news, I go and see green day tomorrow! The venue is kinda close to my house, So it should be a really good day. Also today i went for an interview for this Media course i really wanted to get on and....I GOT ON! You're probably thinking that it was obvious that i'd get on. But i really wasnt sure if i'd get on. I'm so damn happy today! I'll post more about this in my blog later. (which is linked at the top)

A Quick Departure...

I almost failed the project again. Today right after college i went to an album signing for a band called 'The Departure' and after whilst i was in Mc Donalds (no i didnt have'soda'. i had orange juice.) My friend Dan said 'So you've posted you're video yeah?' and i started to panic. I cant believe i forgot about it. I've done it every day for the last 6 months! So i thought about getting a train back just to do a video. Dan said we'd be back by 11pm. I still worried though.


Click here for the quicktime version.


I was still on the train at 11.15pm, so when i got in about 11.30 i rushed to do this as fast as i could. I have 10 minutes to go. I so need to make and upload video for those kinda situations.

A Sped Up Party.

If you havent noticed, Im a fan of speeding things up and sped up videos. So today's video shouldn't come as a shock to you. I put my camera up in the corner of my kitchen and just let it record everything until it ran out. (that was an hour and a half.)


Click here for the quicktime version.


The party was also in my front room and the garden. But i didnt film there. (next time i'll film in every room)

I didn't advertise Ask Ian this week, so no wonder i didnt get any questions. I'll post part 2 of Ask Ian #10 later Instead. although, i do think ask ian has become boring to watch now. I need to shake things up for next week. So next week, if you have a question for me, you can make a video or send in a mp3 asking me something. you can also just email me as normal.

Ask Ian #10 Part 1

So everything is against me today. My compression has screwed up, so that means the video is a stupid fize size and i just heard we might get a powercut...


Click here for the quicktime version.


The video skips a little towards the end too i think. But it isnt that bad. Sorry about the stupid file size. I'll fix as soon as i can.

Part 2 coming soon. I'll see if i can get another original video up tonight if i can sort this size issue out.

Embossing? (temp)

Today's Ask Ian Video turned out to be over 20 minutes long. That would have taken forever to save, upload and convert. So im putting this video up in the mean time.


Click here for the quicktime version.


The quicktime version may still be uploading when you click on it. give it a few minutes.

Would you really wanna watch a 20 minute talking into the camera video? I will break the video up or redo it in smaller chunks. what do you think i should do?

oh and i hear Chuck's birthday was on the 4th. So Happy Belated Birthday!

I wasnt going to post this video, but then i realised you cant see his face at all. So there isnt a problem now. I just think this video is amusing.

Oh, today this site was talked about in The Times Magazine, page 14. If you happened to have missed that. Check it out here. Credit goes to Alexander for scanning it.

A Day In London (Preview)

Im so damn tired. Everything hurts....Well, mainly my feet. Here's a preview of my footage from London today.


Click here for the quicktime version.


At one point, I just turn on the camera and held it in my hand as i was walking around. I'm not sure how that'll come out. But we'll see. Also my friend tried to film one of those London bell ringers. You know, the ones thats say 'here ye, here ye' whilst he was on a break reading a london news paper. it was so typical. But he held up the paper over his face the whole time. (trying to avoid being on camera) He actually looked realy annoyed. Damn, that was funny. I'll add the rest of the videos up later or in the morning. Im just too tired to edit now.
