WATER: Words from the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers

Filmed during the 2011 Esalen Arts Festival, Agnes Baker Pilgrim spoke to the importance of water in all aspects of our lives. We decided to capture her message for all to hear.

‘WATER’ has been selected for a feature in an upcoming exhibition on the International Museum for Women website. The International Museum of Women is featuring Agnes Baker Pilgrim and the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers in our “Heroes” feature (to be released April 2012).
MAMA: Motherhood Around the Globe is an online exhibition of global art, voices and ideas. 600,000 online visitors come annually to view IMOW’s galleries– to be inspired, connect, and take action on issues that matter.

3D Motion Tracking Experiments, pt. 1

We wanted to see how well an open-source software tool could handle some 3D tracking. Aside from the cube glitch at the end, we now see how extra objects can be inserted into scenes for post-production purposes

Shot on a tripod dolly with Sony EX-1 in 30p,
Exported clip as a .tga sequence and tracked in Voodoo,
Composited & exported in After Effects.

Enjoy the cube glitch at the end!
