SF Weekly Process Film

Painting the SF Weekly Cover from Scott Bakal on Vimeo.

Recently, I've been able to do a better quality render of the process video I did some time ago for the SF Weekly cover that was housed on the magazine's website. That version is pretty blurry.  It's still soft because it was filmed as a test at a low quality and I really didn't expect it to go public but it is much better overall. If you haven't seen it before, here it is!

I filmed myself creating the 'Float' painting a while back with the intention of putting this together before I released the series of art is was associated with. As it happens sometimes, life gets in the way.

Finally, I was able to wrap my head around it and spend some time working on it. I did a video a couple of years ago for the SF Weekly piece I did but it was more of a test and was shot at incredibly low resolution.

To create the video, I used After Effects, Photoshop and Audition.

A special thanks to my friend Lucy for letting me use her song. Her new album under the name 'Luciar' titled "Feeling A Little Emo" will be available on Amazon & iTunes on October 2nd, 2012

This is what it looks like when you stand in the middle of the room and spin around. You're lucky today - not so much of a mess lately...you can see the floor!
