A "colour collage music video" of the buses of MTA Maryland in Baltimore, ranging from some of the oldest Flxible Metros to the newest New Flyer DE60LFRs. Techinical notes: This project is the result of hours of editing work in Corel Video Suite, and is a montage of over 20 clips using variations of the colour louvre effect. The clips were all saved as separate 720x404 (in order to preserve the 16:9 display ratio) MOV files and compiled here on two overlay tracks so that they could interchange to allow multiple shots to display simultaneously on the screen. Final output was a 720x404 MOV file that is 5:03 in length and 272MB in size, and will likely take much of the night to upload to Youtube over DSL.
