Animated Stop Motion GIFs!

Clearly, I am losing my mind. :-P.  Or have already lost it. It’s so ridiculous!!  ;-)

These were originally created for this video.

Some people have commented they could watch it forever. And now they can!

PS: I could not make up my mind about which website to use as my watermark and changed my mind halfway, hence both.

This is an outtake as it didn’t end up in the final video.

I could do a few more (maybe 2 more) but they either aren’t as good or really similar to the ones I already have on here.

I can only draw horses facing left

‘Tis mostly true…

We were never quite able to do my original project in the 10-week timeframe so I ended up with this. This is the pre-production (and goofing around) of my film that I hope to do.

Produced in association with Frames Film Project.

Mindmapping/artwork by Kat Thorsen and Jennifer Lyons. I guess this could be alternatively titled as “Jen Hold a Camera and Gets the Frames Staff to Mindmap for Her”.

Things I learned

  • How to use a Mac
  • More Final Cut Pro 7
  • Final Cut hates MP4s
  • Converting and rendering take a while. Get used to it.
  • Shooting in 1080HD isn’t really worth it if you have

Existing: Rhythms of Days

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Each day leads to the another day, seamlessly flowing into another as time somehow marches by.

That used to disturb me.  It used to bother me that I was getting older (I’m now 25) but not really achieving anything. I still live at home. I’m still not independent. Forget a career, I never had a job ever and well….I don’t know. I still don’t know how I’m going to afford my expensive hobbies (why expensive hobbies?! Grrr!). But for the time being, I guess it is not meant to be….

Those things haven’t changed. They haven’t changed at all. But I’m somehow less disturbed by it. I’ve found steps towards See the rest of the post →

Horses from 2009-2014

Horses 2009 to 2014 from Jennego on Vimeo.

I don’t canter THAT much but for some reason it seems like a lot of footage is of canter… Also the jump here was the first jump since 2008! (I don’t usually jump because I am a chicken). Also disclaimer: there is a giant eye in this lol! :-P I don’t find it freaky….

The footage came from a variety of sources hence the highly variable quailty. It’s also not chronological because I don’t know….lazy editing :-P . Maybe another time.

Yes, the Tony is the SAME Tony. He’s a magical colour changing grey horse! (He’s probably white now…)
Oh and yes, the See the rest of the post →

New Years Resolution 2015

  1. Organize my photos/videos into monthly folders this year (unless it’s a project) in hopes that I’ll be able to find my stuff more easily.

That’s it. I can’t think much beyond this month at the moment.

I’m doing 2 online photo courses this month (one free MOOC and one an xmas gift) and both are only 1 month. I had bigger goals last year but…I’m sort of doubting that too…

But seriously, how the hell is it 2015??!! I swear it was 2010 not too long ago!!

2014: My Year in Photos

Sometimes it has a lot to do with what I’m doing, sometimes it doesn’t.  A few are personal, most have probably been seen before. 2 photos per month seem to show the best. Well, except I wanted to stick a snow photo in November but….oh well. Some months I had a lot of photos to choose from, others, less so.

2014.  It was weird.  This was  the first full year out of school. This is a full year in limbo, with very little structure.  There were quite a few highs but there were also a few somewhat disastrous things and lows.  Some things proved way more complicated/harder then it seemed.
