I’ve been wanting to do a tilt-shift video of Portland for a while. When I saw The Bridge City Interlude on Dave Knows, I got inspired to start looking for a tilt-shift app for my phone.
I went around taking some videos from parking garages, bridges, and out the windows of my work. I used the TiltShift Video app. The music is by my friend Trevor Bennett. Check out his music blog Weekly Reverie.
I recently (finally?) got an iPhone, which means in addition to annoying everyone by talking about which apps I’m downloading, I’m also annoying everyone by taking videos of everything. I actually decided to get an iPhone specifically because of the HD video and editing capabilities. (The Vimeo app has free editing capabilities and–hey, where are you going?)
The music for this timelapse is by Trevor Bennett, who scored “Did You Kiss Anyone?” This song is used in the movie and I’ve listened to it a lot the past year or so. Portland plays a big part of the movie. Not so much in the plot or narrative, but especially in how the movie was made. So to me, the music and video are a perfect match.
I needed to drive out to Sandy yesterday so naturally I decided to zip-tie my Flip camera to the front of the car and speed it up 2000%. I also stopped at Joe’s Donuts and ate a maple bar. That part of the video was not sped up. Also, there is a dog pooping on the side of the road, so I stopped the video so you could see that.
