GIGANTIC from Hugo Goudswaard on Vimeo.

Extreme macro extravaganza.

Shot with panasonic GH2 and an old 9mm Fujinon TV c-mount lens.
Lens was around €50,- It did fit with the c-mount to 4/3 adapter but not in the right way. Guess it had to go backwards into the sensor to get infinity focus (see, be careful!) The good thing was that the lens is crispy sharp just 0.7 cm in front of the lens. Only problem is to get the right light equipment because you are extremely close to your object. Good luck, I used to be a gaffer and I still had a mini battery operated softbox. (€4,- ex. batteries) So it was all very simplistic and all shot in and around my own house.

30 motion tests in 30 seconds from Steffen K on Vimeo.

Over a period of 30 days I challenged myself to created 1 second of animation every day. The idea was to experiment and explore workflow in the software package Cinema 4D and publish one frame from my experiments daily..

The rules:
-Animate 1 second everyday
-Publish one frame daily at
-Put it all together to approx. 30 seconds of animation

In the end I didnt quite manage to complete this challenge on a daily basis, but I ended up with 30 motion tests and this is the result..
