This is an edit of the rest of my footage from my week in Tokyo. I had hoped to get out of the city but due to circumstances I didn’t make it.
Alex Kubalsky came with my again and also Dean Harrington joined up with up with us one afternoon too.
I wanted to create a personal piece about the city, capturing it’s feel without being too obviously “touristy”, more the stuff down the side roads, or the people you walk past but still with a little bit of the old beauty and cultural side. A lot to fit into 6 minutes!
I used the mizar motorized mount again for the timelapses. Most of them were 180 degrees with one 360 degree one at the end.
Everything bar the the slow mo was done in 1080p 25. Section one was all done on the Extreme, most of section two was the ultimate and three back to the Extreme. I had a problem with a piece of dust on the ground glass which I didn’t notice on the LCD monitor but it came up like a strange watermark. I disguised it as much as I could in the edit. Lesson to remember, always check to see it is spotless before filming. I was so used to the Ultimate which isn’t bothered by dust the same way that I forgot to check! There are a few night shots done without any adaptor but I hope it is difficult to spot which is Ultimate/ Extreme/ clean as I tried to blend them all together in the edit.
The music is from the Album Talkie Walkie by Air and is called “Alone in Kyoto”, hence the play on the title like a couple of my other shorts. It was spot on for this. Just a shame I never made it to Kyoto. Almost, but not quite!
