So, as was previously mentioned, I recently returned from a trip to Japan. I was there working as a student volunteer for this year's SIGGRAPH Asia conference. It was definitely a pretty awesome experience; however, I was so overworked and jet lagged, that I primarily spent my free time sitting in the hotel lobby, editing my photos/videos, and creating silly pixilation animations in Flash. I've already posted some of those clips. Below are some of the photographs. I took 400+ that week, which means I will probably be posting more in the near future. Isn't that just stellar?

Reel Time

A short compilation of some work I've done. The music is Ghostwriter, by RJD2.

Yes, I went to Japan.

These clips are tests for a video that I am creating for the SCAD Admissions Department, which documents SIGGRAPH Asia 2009, in Yokohama, Japan. Both are comprised of stop motion photography. If you can't tell, I was sans tripod. Adds to the grittiness and/or reality factor, I guess.
The first is of a waving Japanese flag. I took the photos near the amusement park in Yokohama, messed with the colors in Photoshop, and then sequenced them using Flash.
The second is of a crowded promenade in downtown Yokohama. Same basic process.

In my new found spare time, I've decided to become more adept at Photoshop. I'm posting some of the text exercises I've been using to practice. All of the words come from lyrics to songs I've been listening to while working. How original.
