Earlier this month Manu did a great timelapse post and I decided to follow in his epic footsteps.
The shot in question is a bit tricky since the character is walking at a brisk pace, the camera is shaking, and there’s a lot of hand manipulation. For shots like these I prefer using a real prop when shooting my reference footage, but after a failed voyage to the thrift store to find a Walkman (or a similar cassette player) I was forced to improvise. With a bit of tape and creativity I made a make-shift “cassette player” from a cassette case and a broken hard drive.
This is the first time I try to record my work progress; I have much to learn. Hope you enjoy it! :)
