The video camera mount consists of a car mount system. The goose neck is mounted to my shelf so no vibration is picked up while drawing. The side / desk view is mounted to a piece of plexi-glass with a rubber boot attached at the bottom, also to cut down on vibration and to keep it from sliding.
Here’s what I’ve been doing. I found out my camera was pretty decent on my phone. I set up my desk with a phone car mount kit and recorded the process of this drawing.
Here is my desk set up:
I mounted the goose neck to my shelf to keep it from vibrating when I’m drawing. The lighting and cam are at the same height. One thing I noticed when playing back the video was my breathing. The phone is directly in front of my face, I sounded like a Neanderthal jumping rope. It was pretty loud. I mounted the other phone clip to a piece of plexi-glass with a foam rubber foot on the back to keep it from sliding. This was my first attempt, so more than likely things will change. One thing I didn’t want was to put it to music but I don’t have three or four minutes of conversation in me. I can type long blathering and incoherent paragraph’s but that takes work. The video came out to four hours, I edited it down to four minutes and put calm music to it. Or it’s calm to me. It’s recorded on 1080p High Def if you wan’t to watch it full screen.
Well I started out down a dirty road
Started out all alone
And the sun went down as I crossed the hill
And the town lit up, the world got still
I’m learning to fly, but I ain’t got wings
Coming down is the hardest thing
Well the good ol’ days may not return
And the rocks might melt and the sea may burn
Well some say life will beat you down
Break your heart, steal your crown
So I’ve started out for God knows where
I guess I’ll know when I get there
I’m learning to fly, around the clouds
But what goes up must come down

I thought these were posted before, I’ll do it again. I tried animation a few years ago and this is what came out. I did this with Paint.NET, morphing software I’ve forgotten the name of and Windows Movie Maker. Each Movement was a picture put together in order into a movie. There might be 700 pictures in RIRI and 500 in Kyoumoto.
the volume is louder on this one.
