Every time- that scene was shot on 3 different launches. I'm actually flying the same SRBs this weekend at MDRA.Did you get the SRBs back?
It was an artful and entertaining video. I bet it was as much fun to make and edit as it is to watch.Every time- that scene was shot on 3 different launches. I'm actually flying the same SRBs this weekend at MDRA.
There's a lot of cool methods applied to this video- one of my favorites being the fuse delay launch and the cool smoke creaping up the side of the rocket- it is a method replicated from the way I used to launch back in the mid 1970s. Looks even better on video.
I had to invent some stuff to make it happen- the most important thing being the outrigger cam
This is still just about the most amazing setup I've ever seen. WAY KEWL!I had to invent some stuff to make it happen- the most important thing being the outrigger cam
The over the shoulder was a neat shot, as well as the ones from his 'feet' looking up toward the top of the ant space suit and canopy. I'm guessing you either used mirrors or mounted the cams in those positions. I have a boostervision too, but I've been relearning my "rocket chops" back before I really start messing with them (plus my "old" camcorder is still packed away SOMEWHERE in all the stuff we put in plastic tubs for Hurricane Rita and Ike over the past couple years and I haven't had the moxie to dig through it all to find it.) Plus, for some reason, I've been really into building tiny little ant scale models for the past year or so for some reason... Addictive little things!If I told ya' how I did the chase plane shot, you'd be really disapointed... so I won't tell.
Much like the "Over the shoulder Ant-cam view" the most simple things can go really far.
That's the odd part that I'm still looking at. There were some odd tortions on the ants during the flight and prior to the crash. The cam, however, was ahead of the ants- so it was taken out before it could capture any moment of impact on them.What crashed and will it make the vid??
