On Palomar-like framing a simple event

"I would like to swim against the stream of time: I would like to erase the consequences of certain events and restore an initial condition. But every moment of my life brings with it an accumulation of new facts and each of these new facts brings with it its consequences; so the more I seek to return to the zero moment from which I set out, the further I move away from it; though all my actions are bent on erasing the consequences of previous actions and though I manage to achieve appreciable results in this erasure, enough to open my heart to hopes of immediate relief, I must, however, bear in mind that my every move to erase previous events provokes a rain of new events... Therefore I must calculate carefully every move so as to achieve the maximum of erasure with the minimum of re-complication."

Trying to simplify the visual flow of a batch of serendipitous, shaky beach footage, Sam Renseiw applied simple software to re-frame the seen in an more "matrix" like manner, with semi-panoramic glides. Follow the voodle-promenade-in-frames while keeping your eyes locked on the horizon until the main protagonists appear to establishing a Kirkegaardian duality.

Very interesting the way one's brain does a double take; almost re-correcting for the correction.

yes, what is this "simple software"? It could prove effective in employing the horizontal rule.

the simple software is a plug in for imovie 5 ( yes, i still use a now antiquated software :-), called: slick stabilizer, from the GeeTree- slick 8 package. >

most effects works fine, except the color keep/color replace that at time has difficulties deciding on what to render.
but the slick stabilize works fine.

Hei Sam, this truly being a noteworthworthy fine fine celebration of the upcomming patafilm # 600 event! No excuses... this being good!!! lol

We share the event by introducing our latest voodle-project; a straight spacetwo : patalab blueprint called LOMEG_ROM : voodles on CONTIGUITY. Why change what allready drives the wagon... and it's all for the cause anyway. We're pouring out new and long-time-stored-away voodles hoping for the best, resp. that quantity does produce sooner or later. Text-work is short but will be driven harder soon.

About one of our mutual projects; moi (yep, that's her) is still looking for a suitable cabin - the rest is being worked on too.

Comming to your place at the beginning of June - we'll meet if you can.

Klem, b.k. / LOMEG_ROM
