A walk through the MIT Stata Center to room 32-155 (video).
You don’t need a video camera to make movies. This movie was made from a sequence of still images shot with a Canon 10D digital camera using a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens @ 24mm. A tripod was used to keep each frame level, and I lined up the viewfinder focus marks with objects in the background to maintain good alignment between exposures. I had to move quickly between shots so that I’d still have people show up in subsequent frames as they walked along the corridor. Then, after upoading the images to my Mac, I opened the folder of images as an image sequence using QuickTime Pro and then exported them as a DV movie. Soundtrack Pro was used to create the soundtrack from sound effects and music loops. Final Cut Pro was used to edit the video. Compressor was used to create an iPod-compatible movie. The completed movie was uploaded to blip.tv, which transcodes uploaded videos to Flash, which is what you see here on this page.
