Well, it didn’t take as long as I expected to clean up the dust spots from the two other time-lapse videos. When you’re not rendering twenty layers of transparent footage things go quite a bit faster. Here’s the front of the turbine in close-up: And the darker-skies version of the turbine in the landscape (which
It was finally clear enough and “warm” enough, and I actually had a day off, so I went down to Ten Hills Park near Assembly Square and shot some wind turbine footage. I thought I would make a 20-layer icosacomposite of the 1.8MW turbine at the MWRA facility, but I couldn’t find a location that
I’m scouting out locations for a good shot of the MWRA turbine in Everett, and I shot a quick 1-hour time-lapse in Ten Hills Park near Assembly Square this afternoon. A decent video, but I think I found a better place for the next installment.
It’s weird… I thought I’d gotten the wind turbine thing over with, when I did the moonlit turbine video that went until sunrise early one December morning… but here we are again. This is a different turbine than the small Northwind 100 on the McGlynn campus. This is the 1.8 MW installation at the MWRA
Well, the results are in, and all three film shorts I submitted made it into the 2012 Glovebox Film Festival. Glovebox is a couple of folks crusading to get interesting art out in front of the public, and I first showed with them when I arrived in Beantown in 2008. Another short of mine was
Finally, a night near the full moon that wasn’t overcast. November’s syzygy was a complete bust, and the night before last was completely cloudy. Last night was beautiful, there wasn’t even any horsetail cirrus or little puffy clouds. Those would have been a nice addition, if they had been present, but I’m pretty happy with
Here’s another layered video of the new megawatt turbine at the MWRA. I couldn’t find a good place to park that also had a dynamic view of the turbine, but this particular view is interesting because it overlooks the MBTA Orange Line tracks going across the river in Everett. Several cars make their ghostly appearance
Here’s a new mult-layer turbine composite of the brand-new 1.8 MW turbine installed last month at the MWRA facilities in Everett, MA. Since it’s close, big, and easily filmed, I’ll probably try to do some more videos of this turbine in the future.
Last night the full moon was up so I took the opportunity to shoot a moonlit turbine video. Here’s the color-corrected version: And the original footage as shot:
