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,

They Yellow Trotter’s Flight


Przewalski’s horse (pronounced / sh’e-val-skee.) Known as Equus ferus przewalskii or Dzungarian horse, is a rare and endangered subspecies of wild horse native to the steppes of central Asia, specifically Mongolia. At one time extinct in the wild, it has been reintroduced to its native habitat in Mongolia at the Khustain Nuruu National Park, Takhin Tal Nature Reserve, and Khomiin Tal.

Most “wild” horses today, such as the American Mustang or the Australian Brumby, are actually feral horses descended from domesticated animals that escaped and adapted to life in the wild. In contrast, Przewalski’s horse has never been domesticated and remains a truly wild animal today.  The Przewalski’s horse is considered the only remaining truly wild horse in the world.

This piece revolves around the return of the wild horse from near extinction to a new world after many years of being away from its natural habitat. The present appears as a dream as it struggles to replace what it knew about this world. And the yellow little horse wants to fly again through the high steppes of Asia, despite the modern world.

The background music is very particular and native to this area which includes “throat singing” by Huun Huur Tu. Throat singing is a form of vocalization in which the singer manipulates multiple notes at once — the resonances (or formants) created as air travels from the lungs through the vocal folds and out of the lips to produce a melody.

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.

Plasma nightmare


Let the images tell the tale… This piece is left to your imagination = interpretation.

Music: Metamorphosis 4 – Composer Philip Glass – Played by Branka Parlic

Photography: Bob Merco :: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobmerco/ ; Leo Bar :: http://www.flickr.com/photos/leobar-pixinmotion/

A very different and difficult piece to produce. It contains at times 6-7 video tracks plus 2 audio tracks. Time consuming and took forever to render once all the clips were in place. I tried to give it a grainy, dreamy look, used a lot of diffusion, coloring with blue and orange when appropriate. This piece contains segments using blue screen (chroma key) and superimposition of composites.

Hope you enjoy (?) this nightmare and if not, at least enjoy the beautiful piano composition and playing.

Rapid eye movement


In this video I attempted to resurrect memories from last Summer. The story goes that more than a memory it represents fragments of a dream as remembered once I was fully awake. As with all dreams, some parts are clearer than others, and some segments are practically forgotten, while other are recurring.
Say what you want, but this was my dream, and I intend to keep it that way 🙂

This video is using a transparent texture to represent the fuzzy and flawed dream/memory sequence.
