What if we could escape our daily routine for a moment ? A Step, just one, that could move us miles away from here, in a second; a flash step. A Shunpo.

Shunpo was shot in 6 days in 13 different locations in Paris plus one in Turkey at "Tuz Gölü" salt lake.
The camera used was a Canon 5D Mark III with 16-35 L, 24-70L and 70-200L lenses.
This is my graduation work.
The animation tells the story about a little boy who meet a fox in a rainy day. The fox wants to collect water from the city, so little boy helps the fox with his plight and accidentally he found another world where is the little fox come from.
All the music is from soundtracks.
The collage artist makes us question the worth of taking something at face value. More on theavantgardediaries.com

I shot Huelux from April-November 2013 in South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah. The weather in 2013 made it difficult for me to get some of the shots I wanted. There were many times I planned to shoot the Milky Way or Aurora, and the clouds would roll in. But that also allowed me to get more night storm timelapse than I have any other year.
See more about it on Facebook facebook.com/dakotalapse
I was in Utah for 6 nights, it was clear only one night, it was also 95F at midnight that night. So I couldn't shoot as high of an ISO as I wanted because of noise, but I still pulled off a few good shots in Zion Canyon.The weather was much the same while I was in Wyoming, it was cloudy 2/3 of the nights I was there. But I did get some of my best Milky Way shots of the year in Wyoming, see 1:45-2:05 in the video. The clouds did make for some good sunrise and sunset shots.
10 Minute feature available on Vimeo on Demand here vimeo.com/ondemand/huelux10
On the Milky Way shots you will see a lot of slow and fast moving satellites, a few meteors and planes. The meteors are hard to see in timelapse, but you may see a quick flash because they only last one frame. If you see a light moving across the sky, it is either an airplane or satellite, not a meteor.
Some of the Aurora I shot were unexpected with no advanced notice. Several nights I was setting up Milky Way shots, when I noticed the glow in the sky to the north. In one case an hour before I got any Aurora notification on my phone. The storm shot at 2:57 has Aurora behind it, which was quickly covered up by the storm.
I came up with the title Huelux, which comes from hue (a color property), and lux which is latin for light. Some of the Aurora and Milky Way were difficult to color correct, so I spent a lot of time with the hue settings, white balance, etc. during the month and a half edit. The low Aurora on the horizon were often yellow, while closer (higher in the sky) Aurora were green. If I adjusted the yellow Aurora on the horizon green, it threw the rest of the colors, such as grass, way off and made the whole image too blue.
The end credit backgrounds are 10 second timelapse exposures of Andromeda Galaxy and Orion shot with a 200mm lens on an Ioptron Skytracker. You will see some satellites moving through the sequences.

A mother wolf breaks into a hunter's den and takes back her cub, only to find it a motionless trophy. She sings a lullaby hoping that the cub would finally sleep. Little does she know that a young hunter stalks them back from the den.

This old dot matrix printer has been converted into a MIDI compatible sound generator. Up to 21 notes can be played simultaneously. It features up to 16 MIDI channels with individual volume and pitch. Key velocity for every note played is also implemented.
This MIDI file uses lots of of "channel pitch" and "channel volume" commands.

Here is a classic scene from an episode of The Office in which Michael attempts to teach Dwight and Jim about customer service. Watch Dwight become “aggressive, hostile and difficult” as he partakes in some role playing with Jim.

MIDI file by Don Carroll.
This old 24-pin dot matrix printer has been converted into a MIDI compatible sound generator. Up to 21 notes can be played simultaneously. It features up to 16 MIDI channels with individual volume and pitch. Key velocity for every note played is also implemented.
An Atmega8 and an FPGA are connected to various parts of the original printer main board. The Atmega handles the incoming MIDI messages, communicates with the FPGA and drives the stepper motors for the print head and paper feed. The FPGA is configured to generate lots of pulse-width modulation signals with independent frequency and duty cycle to drive the individual printer pins.
The external electronics and the printer main board are connected using a normal centronics printer cable and an additional 9-pin connector (the printer cable did not have enough wires).
The electronics features a standard MIDI DIN connector which is connected to a USB-MIDI converter. It's possible to connect a MIDI keyboard instead of the PC and play live.
The Atmega firmware responds to all 16 MIDI channels, but this can be reduced to certain channels if the printer is supposed to play together with other sound generators.
The FPGA is a Xilinx Spartan-3E on a development board ("Spartan-3E Starter Kit"). It is pretty much oversized for the application of generating 21 PWM signals but it's what I had available.
The original printing frequency was approx. 1kHz with a pulse width of 300µs. So every pin hit the paper at maximum 1000 times per second when printing stuff. The MIDI electronics drives this from a few Hz up to 2kHz.
When the pulse width is reduced the sound gets quieter because the pin hits the paper with less force. This way "channel volume" and "key velocity" are implemented.
This is my final project from Vancouver Film School's 3D animation program. With Malaise I wanted to do a project that was both visually exciting and a demonstration of my abilities as an animator. The look of the piece was influenced by an array of old sci-fi classics ranging from Andrei Tarkovsky's Solaris to Jean-Claude Forest's Barbarella. For the feel and tone of the film it was to Ridley Scott's Alien franchise that I drew inspiration from. I wanted to pursue a slightly more realistic route for the animation so I researched live action movie footage, live reference as well as more recent CG efforts from America and Japan to help achieve to type of movement I desired. This project was a labor of love and I thank everyone who helped bring it to the screen. Enjoy the show!
