La Quinta Ad

May 26, 2009

this weeks entry is a video one, for www.steinimation.com.

(or here:  Youtube)

at a wedding a couple of weekends ago in Des Moines, IA, i stayed at a La Quinta Inn and Suites.  i figured it was the perfect opportunity to shoot a high quality commercial for them to bring home and score, so i went to work.

The content for this was really handed to me.  As i walked around the hotel i realized that everything i needed to know about this place was staring me in the face.  i shot my room a bit, the hallway, lobby, elevator, parking lot, and stairwell, and over the course of a couple of days got a couple of good shots of the La Quina sign.  i made sure to get some stills to animate when i got home too, including the little shampoo bottle and the making of a coctail.  BAM!  shoot wrapped.

then i came home and made a basic lyric sheet for the images i got, and put them in a functional order.

then, as the lyric sheet came together in time and content, i started playing guitar over cuts of the video, set at a specific speed, so that the video would match the music in time.  had i started cutting the video with these specific clip lengths i would’ve saved a lot of time, and now i know.  i set all the image lengths to divisions of 2 seconds, and set my music metronome to 120 beats per minute.  BAM!  music wrapped.

also, thanks to vimeo.com, i now have a much slicker video player for steinimation.com, and several videos posted on their site.  thanks vimeo!

also, thanks to Nate Roettgen for his inspiring performance in the video!  nate was a real jem to work with.

thanks for tuning in!

new etude AND new site

May 5, 2009

hey friends,

thing 1: etude number 4!

this one is the “pretty” one, and the longest of the bunch.  i’m still a little on the fence about it.  i’m happy with the theme and general idea, but may try and trim it down a bit.  stay tooned.  🙂

thing 2:  i just launched www.steinimation.com as a host for stop-animation shorts i’ve been making.  hope you like them!  they’re ridiculous.

love,

steiny
