Artist In Residence at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, UK

In Uncategorized on July 1, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , ,


In July and August I will be Artist In Residence at Bank Street Arts, 32-40 Bank Street, Sheffield S1 2DS.

I will be shooting timelapse video with a view to creating a new piece of work as part of my project “The Secret Life of Buildings”. This is a body of video work that is intended to present a portrait of a building that is not necessarily a literal document of it.

The first in this series is “The Eye and The Sky” (2008), which was shot in The HUBS (Sheffield Hallam University’s Students’ Union building).

I will be documenting my progress on a new blog, and will be writing a text about the process. We also hope to have a screening at Bank Street Arts after the residency. I will not be present every day but will be shooting on and off throughout July and August.

The Secret Life of Buildings #6 – HDR Timelapse Video

A different take on the commercial promo. This is another interpretation of high dynamic range (HDR) time-lapse video that I shot for a promotional video for The Quadrant. The music is “Gnossienne No. 1” by Erik Satie, performed by B. L. Underwood.

The Quadrant, Sheffield, UK – Promotional Video V1

In Uncategorized on June 14, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

At last, after a rather long process, I have finished a version of my promotional video for The Quadrant, a serviced office space in Sheffield, UK. Commissioned on behalf of CVC Event Services.
It’s entirely time-lapse video shot on-site, and some of it is high dynamic range (HDR), post-processed with Photomatix Pro. Music by Laurence Alexander.

The Quadrant Video Shoot – HDR timelapse experiments with CHDK

In Uncategorized on May 16, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

These are some fragments from a HDR timelapse shoot at The Quadrant, a serviced office space in Sheffield, UK. Below are some short examples of HDR timelapse video created with Canon PowerShot cameras “hacked” with the Canon Hack Development Kit (CHDK), an open-source software program. The HDR is achieved by shooting 3 exposures for each shot, one normal exposure, one +2 EV and one -2 EV. The results are post-processed with Photomatix into tone-compressed jpegs, the result of which is to produce an image with a much greater colour depth. These are then compiled into movies using QuickTime Pro. The result is a moving image that can accommodate a very high dynamic range without losing either the highlights or the shadows. It’s very processing-intensive but the results are impressive and produced with domestic-scale equipment (and a lot of patience).

Watch them in 720p HD on Vimeo or YouTube and stay tuned for a proper edit. Music by Sieben aka Matt Howden.

Are you looking at me? – The Wayne Sables Project

Laura White and Carly Brookfield improvising for camera tests at the Barnsley Civic, Barnsley, UK. The tests are to experiment with extreme slow motion treatment in post-production. We only intended to gather test material but it is so good we hope to make finished video work from it.

In Uncategorized on April 21, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , ,

I have been commissioned to make a promotional video for The Quadrant, a serviced office space in Sheffield, UK, on behalf of CVC Event Services. Shooting of the live content has gone well, although there is still much to do, including the time-lapse portion.
