Andy Earl : Moving Images

Andy Earl is a photographer who embraces videography into his still images. This session focuses on the aspects of moving images, in his example, he shares his experiences and the ‘morphing technique’ in filming Rolling Stones song, “Like a Rolling Stone”.

Andy noted that in the commercial world, clients are always asking for something that hasn’t been seen before, and creative artists are constantly pushing boundaries in their visuals. The morphing technique was initially conceived as an experimental photography technique at the time, which fits the overall theme of the band’s song.

In his work on on the song, Andy notes three key things in approaching to the video project:

  • What is the story behind the subject, your ideas or your vision?
  • Sometimes, experimentation works to get creative visuals going.
  • Consider the magnitude of work behind each project?

The morphing technique, which later developed into the  “bullet time” technique, was an interesting one worth keeping a mental note of, but not likely what I would use to inform my project assignment. The morphing technique, which later developed into the  “bullet time” technique, was an interesting one worth keeping a mental note of, but not likely what I would use to inform my project assignment.
