Local Greenville blogger Eric Rogers stumbled across one of my posts about tilt-shift photography and thought he’d give it a try. Eric is a filmmaker, so he took things a step further and tried to tilt-shift a video clip. The results are quite good. Here’s a link to his finished product in Quicktime .MOV format…
I know Eric used post-processing on this since he places a link to the original clip on his blog. The image is stable, as if it’s shot from a tripod. I wonder if you could get the same effect from a handle-held unit with image stabilization. I don’t know how the changing scene would affect things.
The video makes extensive use of tilt-shift video imagery. Since the images are in constant motion, I believe they used an actual tilt-shift lens rather than some post-processing to create the effect. Still, it’s very cool.
