This Week in the Classroom (and the shop): Time Lapse Photography or Filming Rigs
In my second period this semester, I’m moonlighting as a video producer. I don’t get to do any fancy music videos or full-feature movies, but I do get to make a documentary. We’ve got the backdrop ordered, the lights rigged up and a the interview stool picked out. I even have a low-slung directors chair that I talk to when its empty. I pretend my boss is sitting there.
In the woodshop, I made this little rig to support my students. This is just a prototype. I’ll be working on a second rig which will find a permanent home in my woodshop when this gig is up. I expect to be making movies which look something exactly like this.
Make it safe and keep the rubberside down this week.
