Critical Mass

Here's another Hyperlapse video I have created. This time Critical Mass Chicago of August 2014 is the subject. Biking around Chicago was an amazing time with such a large group of mostly-positive people. 

It's a bit shaky due to my iPhone 5 only being mounted with a Joby GorillaPod and a Glif+. Also, the Hyperlapse was processed at 8x, but I then doubled that speed when editing it together in iMovie. This reduces the amount of stabilization that Hyperlapse automatically provides. It was a sacrifice I chose to make in order to get the video to be of a reasonable length. Without the 2x speed increase in iMovie, the video would have been well over 10 minutes long.

Sidenote: does anyone know of any better iPhone mounts out there for handlebars that will allow for video to be recorded? 

This is a Hyperlapse video taken on Friday, August 29, 2014 of Chicago's Critical Mass. The route starts in downtown Chicago's Loop at Daley Plaza and then heads to Chicago's south side. Music track is "34 Ghosts IV" by Nine Inch Nails, available on the 'Ghosts I-IV.'

The Mpls Henrys at The Whistler

The Minneapolis Henrys (my close friend Brandon's band) rocked out at the Whistler a couple weeks ago. It was a fun show. They had a ton of energy. Check out my photographs of the event by clicking the photo above or here.

You can check them out on Facebook or listen to some of their songs on MySpace.
