It is his latest piece titled "My Father Didn't Know John Adams" (John Adams, a local Berkeley "minimalist" composer has a piece called "My Father Knew Charles Ives" 8-) ) This is zooming in from the house on a friday night shoot (our view isn't quite this good with the naked eye!)

Time-lapse of 17 hours on Labor Day 2012 overlooking the San Francisco bay. Our downhill neighbor decided to remove a roughly 150 foot eucalyptus (that appeared to be dying) and it bumped our view of the Bay up amazingly.

Time Lapse from day of 2010 Internet Archive holiday party (at 300 Funston Ave, SF). This is our relatively new and interesting downstairs workspace where we have open work "pods" as well as little niches and couch areas for discussions and collaboration. Fun notes: You can see a large clock with spinning hands in the upper right corner! This is my longest time lapse ever -- over 8 hours recorded!

Little short films and such from webmistress tracey pooh. She has a moonlighting hobby with PoohBot Pictures. Tracey most enjoys making short time-lapse films and playing with video techniques & formats. Tracey prefers h.264 MPEG4 video (killer compression for high quality) while having a soft spot for motion-JPEGs (since they are so easy to construct, take apart, and repair). body.ia-module .welcome { background:black bottom center no-repeat url('/serve/poohBot/earth-peek.jpg') !important;...

Time-lapse recording of drive from Lafayette, CA to Internet Archive in the Presidio, San Francisco, CA. About 6500 JPEGs were shot continuously at 2.4fps using the small (but mighty!) Canon SD-300 (and a tripod). I sampled 1000 images at equal intervals and created this motion-JPEG at 10fps using Cygwin mencoder. The "Motion JPEG" file is 640x480, 10fps. Expensive professional camera rig 8-):

This was my first time lapse attempt. [9 Sep 2003] I'm a scientist, right? So let's experiment! I took pictures with my Sony VX2000 miniDV camera while tethered to a VAIO. It created proprietary DVF images which I converted with JVC JLIP tool to JPG. Then I used mencoder to create a 6-frames/sec Motion-JPEG AVI. Not super interesting (just my old place's living room) but fun to see where my evil all started...

short time lapse of Cape Cod marsh with clouds moving over the waters. I used a digital Elph camera in timelapse mode which produced a 640x480 15fps AVI. I sped that up by 4x to 60fps using mencoder to make it more dramatic. Real clock time during the shoot was about 30 minutes.

Having some fun in twisty turns in canyons in the hills near our house, with my 1978 Honda CB400a. Hunter and I were riding together -- this is footage from his helmet cam. I had just learned about 2 excellent turn techniques: (1) lift your butt up off the seat when you move into place towards hanging more off the side of the bike (instead of sliding across the seat) (2) move your head, arms, and shoulder far to the left or right of the windscreen/headlight area -- pretend like you can't see...

My 1978 honda "hondamatic" CB400A cafe racer modified bike project. The "A" is for automatic (a clutch-less 2 speed "low" and "high" geared bike), so I named her "decaf". My first/primary goal is to remove the ridiculously large/lame instrument section into a single smaller combined speedo/odometer/"idiot lights" chrome single instrument, and relocate the key/ignition. For me, this is kinda ambitious! But fun to learn and customize...

Things I see and hear on the prettiest part of my commute. Footage source is Motion-JPEG 640x480 30fps from Canon SD-300. I "vintaged" it (this is how I "see" the Presidio, after all) and cropped top and bottom to 16:9 ratio. What can I say -- I'm a sucker for film and the miniDV and HDV stuff isn't my bag.
