Dabe sends us one of the coolest video submissions I’ve seen in a long time. As we’re gearing up to release the new video galleries on BME, I thought this would be a great addition to show what kind of creativity can be used in video submissions for the site. I’ll let Dabe fill you in on all the details:
So with the help of Tony Touch, I am getting an awesome Nerd sleeve worked on whenever I go visit Toledo. We decided to roll with an evolution of cameras at first, then more nerdy references above.
Tony got the idea from another artist to do a stop-motion video where it looks like the tattoo does itself. I brought in a single alienbee and softbox, plus my handy new remote, and we got to it.
Hopefully we’ll do this for the entire arm. I’d love to have that kind of record of progress on this :)
Since everyone is asking, some things about the tattoo:
-The actual time of the sitting was 4 hours
-This video is comprised out of 1054 shots
-”ROZWÓJ” is Polish for “development”
-The numbers on the film canister reflect the date I took my first serious photograph
-Yes, the film is 35mm, but it’s not going into any of the cameras, just wrapping around. I’m well aware that it looks odd having it next to medium format cameras, but it will make sense when the rest of the sleeve is completed. :)
