The Beach

This Sunday, 4 October, i made a walk along the beach between Scheveningen and Hoek van Holland. The past days I got this video clip together made of clips filmed during the walk: The Beach.

The music is from Kraftwerk. These are not songs i knew that well. But i did have them in my iTunes. They are from the in 1977 released record Trans-Europe Express: Franz Schubert and Endless Endless. It does fit with the beach and the waves and the sea and the birds and the sky.

I do hope you will enjoy this clip.

My house

My House, the new videoclip. I filmed the clips for it Tuesday and Wednesday. Making a choice for the music was a bit harder. It was not self evident from the start. But this song i finally picked from Prefuse 73, One Word Extinguisher, is a steady favourite. I did make a list of instrumental numbers on Monday. Some Kraftwerk, Brain Eno, Daft Punk, Beastie Boys, Senor Coconut in there. I did a search for instrumental numbers and picked some of those for the list. Just to get to know them a bit better. For future reference.

I did use transitions this time. Dissolves. I pushed around the clips to moments which are specific in the music. But i didn’t want it to get too complicated. It’s not a complicated clip. I should watch all three i made so far over the weekend and make comparisons.

I do love my cats, Mieke and Muis! I know they should lose a bit of weight. I do feel guilty they can not get outside. I sometimes wish that would change for them. But still, they do seem happy to me. They do fight a bit sometimes, but usually they sleep together and purr lots.

Enjoy the clip!

Rotterdam – The Kralingse Bos

Monday i walked in the Kralingse Bos. I filmed trees, the water, mushrooms and so many things more. The rest of the week i edited this videoclip.

I truly love it. The filming, the editing.

This together with the singing is what i like doing the most. There are so many steps forward to be made still. I see that. But right now i do feel so happy having found this work. I’m beginning to get a view on what i can do with this. I’m simply enjoying this feeling, not thinking about the practical issues at all. To have finally found something that will last.

Enjoy!

Rotterdam – Around the house

My first clip! Finally! Yay!

I love the music. I’ve known Ed Lincoln for like 10 – 13 years. Marijn once sat behind my computer and added music he felt i missed. Ed Lincoln was in that list. I’m happy there is no singing in it. It’s happy music. Which is how i feel right now.

This is my first proper videoclip. I still have to learn many many things. This week i learned a lot about iMovie, about making clips. I didn’t use many transitions. I liked to keep things simple for starters. I am already thinking about my next videoclip project. Once the weather is a bit better, i probably will do one around the Kralingse Plas. But there are also other options: the beach, Delft, the Rottemeren. I’ll let it sit there for a while and decide later on.

For now, i hope you will enjoy this clip.

🙂
