Imagimotion # 6 Minerals and Spirographs


Dedicated to the souls of those who perished, were wounded and all those affected by the terror acts.
“Nature does not know extinction; all it knows is transformation”
Hope it works for you, as it worked for me.

Imagimotion # 2 – Stardust


Used morphing as the primary vehicle to express the changing nature of elements and how the stars have contributed to everything on Earth.
Everything changes all the time, inevitably, randomly and we don’t know where it will lead us…

Enjoy the show – peace,

Imagimotion # 1


An essay of imagined interactions – fluids, flowers, minerals, crystals, gems and space.
Let your eyes be the windows and your imagination play.

In this piece I’ve used dried flowers and minerals to establish a link between organic and inorganic states. Also, through the use of colored fluids built a nexus to the imagery by connecting space and earthly elements. This is one of a series I’m beginning to develop in this genre.

Enjoy the views,

Beginnings Redux


How to explain evolution in less than 4 minutes? Here’s my humble attempt.

In this production I used: Multiple Screens, Blue and Green Screens, Animations, Multiple Layers and several other special effects to achieve the unique look and feel.

Your comments are appreciated, enjoy the viewing,

Beauty by Fire


This production shows part of my collection of gems and minerals highlighted by providing specific notations to their chemistry and composition. While organizing the storyboard I wanted to show the beginning of the creation, when minerals are spewed from the center of the Earth. Used some public domain explorations of volcanoes and their caldera.

The piece involved intense manipulation of images, including accented coloration, special lighting, macro photography, animation, motion graphics, and other esoteric effects such as morphing.

The music was key to pace the progress of the presentation. Still some stones left that haven’t seen the light or appeared on the screen ­čÖé Perhaps a third chapter on this series may take place in the future.

Enjoy the warmth of the stones,

Le Premier Cri – Primal Scream


An exploration of human evolution from beast to intelligent animal. My way of envisioning how far we’ve traveled and yet how little we’ve changed. Perhaps we will achieve greatness one day…
Used metaphors and dancing to illustrate the ascendance of mankind, culture, language, love, procreation and death.

Snowy Moods


Shot from early morning to midday on December 26, 2012

After a major snowstorm over December’s holidays, I got up early on Dec 26, and armed with everything I thought was needed, decided to go do some video shooting around the Blue Hills area. The Sun hadn’t come out yet, and the sky was still laden with storm clouds. ┬áIt was cold! My plan called for shooting macro and closeups framing the striking looks when snow embraces plants and trees. And so, I did for a while.

As the morning progressed, the sky cleared up and the sun made its shy appearance.┬áThe crystals formed on branches and bushes began glistening and sparkling and all trees appeared to be colored with golden hues. The scenery changed totally and my plan changed accordingly. I switched from closeups to long shots, and began panning to capture the beauty of the colors. Whatever eventually showed up in film, wasn’t quite the spectacle that my eyes saw (and my brain remembers). So, here’s my humble rendition of a glorious, cold,┬ábeautiful┬ámorning after the storm.

Enjoy,

Leo
