Through The Looking Glass

-



Once upon a time, I bought three kaleidoscopes,
one for Diana, one for Carly
and of course one for myself.

And here's a little video I did a longlong time ago
and finally edited a few days ago.








Original idea found here.

Quick update for those of you wondering:

It's actually very simple: I shot this video with my digital camera, holding the kaleidoscope against the lens with one hand, holding the camera with the other hand. I can't remember which hand had the responsability of turning the kaleidoscope around but as you can see, it's all very home-made. I had a candle on the other side of the kaleidoscope to make sure there was enough light and then I used iMovie to edit the whole thing (basically adding a title and music, thrilling ain't it?).


Here's another video I did this winter - you know... if you're so inclined...
