About a week ago I thought time for a weird cat film.
After much fiddling and cat pissing off here it is.
Final cat pissing off set up shown in pic - the 2 150w halogens needed as i wanted sharp frames for the slo mo so it needed to be shot at 1/2000 sec exposure. Shot with a 0.5 wide convertor on my JVC SD DV camera.
In the edit I have drastically screwed with curves, sat level and curve, lots of unsharpening and colo correction untill it looked how I wanted.
I wish now I had put a torch or bike light on top of the lens - this might have reflected off the cats eyes and looked well spooky.
Shame it wasnt 2000fps - I would love a super slomo cam for arty fun.
I was thinking of something funny - it came out sort of spooky.
Music is from fight club by chemical brothers.

I foiled the tube - added vibrato did the job - sounds odd but still works ok. Web link to my server still looks best.
