Behind the scenes look at "The Drive" - vimeo.com - video by Victoria Taylor-Gore. Please read the Planet5D blog for more behind the scenes information on "The Drive" here - blog.planet5d.com This is all raw footage that I shot for "The Drive" - you can see how much cropping, scaling, and color correction I did for "The Drive." Video and Editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - The Hands of Time by Elliot Simons Music license purchased from http Shot with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens, Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro lens, edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. I also used my wonderful Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly in a very unconventional way - see the for more info. on that :) My Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3x was an absolute must for close up focusing.
Video edited by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Dreaming of Flying" by Celestial Aeon Project I purchased the music license from www.jamendo.com The original film footage used in this video is from some old film shorts called "Birds of Prey" and "Song Birds as Neighbors" from the Prelinger Collection (Public Domain video) I also added my own video footage the overlapping tree branches that I shot with a Canon 7D. I purposely gave the old film a dark, night/twilight feel to enhance the feeling of dreaming. I added the outline and blur effects in Adobe After Effects CS4 and then did more color correction and added the tree branches videos in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. The music "Dreaming of Flying" by Celestial Aeon Project was perfect for the dark, dreamy atmosphere created by the effects, and the title of the song fit perfectly with the imagery in the video. The video brings attention to the spontaneous, beautiful movements and varied forms of birds in nature.

Video edited by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Dark City" by Ori Vidislavski Music license purchased from http This video is a second remix I have done from part of a 1939 short film titled "The City" (www.archive.org - part of the public domain collection of the Prelinger Archives. I've edited and added effects to the film with Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and After Effects CS4. The choice of music, color, and overlapping layers of video reinforce the feeling of urban chaos, congestion, and despair. The imagery of the original video put to a new sound and light has a profound relevance to the state of our world today.

I took the liveliest old public domain film footage I could find to create a dynamic and pure fun. I love transforming old film into something new a relevant - thus the updated music with a powerful beat. Editing was done in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and Adobe After Effects CS4.

Video, Art, and Editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com http (blog) Music - Midnight Manhattan by Jeremy Sherman Music license purchased from www.shockwave-Sound.com I worked on this project through the summer - both the pastel backgrounds (that I'll show in my gallery in Santa Fe) and the video. I'm using my own pastels for the backgrounds for the video and mixing in real objects (like the antique toy car) into the scenes. The video includes themes that I have often painted before, but making the scenes work for the video gave me new ideas for my work. The style of the paintings are my style...not a style I invented for this project. The best part though is that by using my pastels as part of the film, it has enriched my composition and challenged me to come up with more creative points of view. I love combining both my passions - pastel and video. Shot with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens, Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro lens, and Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens. Editing done in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. I also used a Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3x...a piece of gear that I find essential, especially with the precise focusing needed with close up shots like this.
Video and editing - Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Balloon Girl" by Hungry Lucy Purchased music license from http Cast - Meredith Dunn This is a video I did during a photography shoot of Meredith Dunn at a local amusement park. A still from this video was included in the "15 & One: Fifteen Photographers and One Model" group photography show at Artgecko Gallery in Amarillo, Texas in July, 2010. Artgecko Gallery - www.artgecko.com I'm not a professional photographer (I'm a fine artist with a passion for video), so I appreciate being included in the show...it was a great learning experience for me! Shot with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens. Edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, with "Aged Film" effects from Digieffects (for the grainy texture), and filters from Photoshop Extended CS4 (added the surface blur and watercolor filters) to give the video a soft, textural, and dreamy/aged film effect. This was my first video shoot with a model, and thanks to model Meredith Dunn for her professional and expressive performance and cooperation :)
"The Wandering Stars" - is my own remix of "L'éclipse du soleil en pleine lune" by Georges Méliès. Méliès added magic to filmmaking, so this is my tribute to his surreal imagery. He is regarded as "The Father of Special Effects," and Charlie Chaplin said he was "the alchemist of light." ...more about Méliès here: www.imdb.com Video and Editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Extracts from "L'éclipse du soleil en pleine lune" by Georges Méliès (1907) - from the Prelinger Archive (public domain) www.archive.org Music - "Hippy Trippy" by Gavin Courtie & Liz Radford Music license purchased from www.shockwave-sound.com Background image: Hubble Telescope image: www.nasa.gov I edited footage of "L'éclipse du soleil en pleine lune" by Georges Méliès (1907) in Adobe After Effects CS4 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS4.
Update: You can see the updated version of this video here vimeo.com - I cleaned up some transitions on the Vimeo version...hate to keep adding more revised versions on YouTube, but Vimeo lets me replace out the video. This revision has a new shot at the end of the completed pastel so everyone can see the finished piece. Thanks to @planetMitch (on Twitter) of Planet5D (blog.planet5d.com for the great suggestion!

I've always called pastels "magic colored dust," and they proved to be a colorful subject. Recently I read a quote by the late Louise Bourgeois (rest in peace) that inspired my approach to this film, "I am not what I am, I am what I do with my hands..." Filmed with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens, and a Tokina 100mm macro f2.8 lens - love these lenses. Edited (with no color correction, only some adjustment to the levels) in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4.

I plan to do more videos about my own artwork, and this was a test to see how I can manage it on my own. It's a challenge to be both in front and behind the camera without it coming off a bit boring :) Next will be a video of my pastel process...but I'm not eager to have my camera around all that pastel dust! Filmed with a Canon 7D, Tokina 100mm f2.8 lens, edited and color graded in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4.
Video and editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Marosirion" by Jon Cooper Music license purchased from www.shockwave-sound.com This is footage from an amusement park in Amarillo, Texas called Wonderland Park. I was experimenting with low light and slow motion on my Canon 7D...shot at 60p and converted to 30p in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. The lens I used was a Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 - quickly becoming my favorite lens. I also was getting used to my new D|Focus from jag35.com (jag35.com I chose a somber, rhythmic soundtrack to enhance the slow motion and play off the title "Dark Wonderland."
Video of Wonderland Amusement Park in Amarillo, Texas. Shot on a Canon 7D with a Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens and a Singh-Ray 77mm Vari-ND filter. I've been going to Wonderland Park since I was a child...very fond memories. Wonderland sparked my interest in photography years ago, and now has inspired me to make this video. I plan to do more videos of Wonderland.

"The Big Game - Final Cut" by Victoria Taylor-Gore - make sure you watch it in HD. Video and editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Drifting Away" by Elliot Simons Purchased music license from http Video Comments: OK - I worked really hard for this revision of "The Big Game" - literally over 50 revisions - yes, I'm persistent. Points to consider: 1. shooting 24 (23.976) fps on a Canon 7D. 2. shooting most of it on a Tokina 100mm macro with no image stabilization (pans are really shaky). 3. finding out after I fell in love with 24p that 24p is really crappy on long horizontal pans (skips on playback over the web). 4. H.264 footage in 24p (23.976) is hard to export in Premiere Pro CS4 (on a PC) and even harder to find the correct export setting for it to export to sites like Vimeo or YouTube (tried the standard Vimeo and YouTube settings, and that still produced rough playback). So I'm going to share what I have learned to get this video to run decently on the web (which looked great on my hard drive from the beginning): 1. reshot some of the horizontal pans on the Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly in 60p and converted it to 24p (slow motion) in Premiere Pro CS4 - that seemed to help make pans in the web version smoother. 2. experimented with different Vimeo settings and adjusted them for 24p - and this is the best result for me (exporting in Premiere Pro CS4 to Vimeo) - a picture is worth a thousand words: www.victoriataylorgore.com Note: this is not ...
Video and Editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Lost City" by Adam Skorupa Purchased music license from http I shot the footage of the birds with a Canon 7D (no image stabilization, handheld), a Tokina 100mm f2.8 lens, and editing done in Adobe After Effects CS4 and Premiere Pro CS4. Other images were collaged over the bird footage to create a mysterious atmosphere...lots of experimentation with color and other effects in AE and Premiere. The story of the beautiful bird in the video (think it was a Cedar Waxwing) - One sunny and windy afternoon I found it on the ground in my backyard and tried to "rescue" it - although I'm not quite sure what I would have done - take it to a vet or something. But it was wild, and that probably wouldn't have worked. At any rate, I had to try to move it since my dogs would have gotten it. When I approached the bird, it had the energy to fly to a nearby tree and it sat there on a branch for a few hours, so I was able to get some footage of it. In the early evening I went back thinking that if it was still there, the light would be perfect to get some more shots of it. By then the bird was gone, and I was relieved that hopefully it had taken off and was OK. But I found it a couple of days later, lifeless in the front yard...so the bird was in its final day/days when I took the footage of it. I buried the bird, and somehow making this video of it made me feel a close connection to it. This little bird had become a ...
Video and editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Drifting Away" by Elliot Simons Purchased music license from http This is a video of an old child's pin ball game that I purchased in an antique store on 6th St. in Amarillo, Texas years ago. I fell in love with its beautiful imagery and graphics...the" coolness" of it, but never imagined that this game would be the subject of one of my videos over ten years later (or that I would ever be shooting videos!). Now I see that the title of this game has a double meaning; alluding to a game, and "big game" - animals in the wilderness that become our targets...predators and prey alike. Here the "big game" are hunted with the eye of a camera lens. I chose the music "Drifting Away" because of its nostalgic quality, and it follows the imagery like a lullaby. Shot with a Canon 7d with a Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens, a Tokina 100mm 2.8 lens, and I used the Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly, and the Kessler Crane K-Pod Tripod with a Hercules 2.0 head. Post color grading and value levels were done in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. This video was shot with the 24p setting on the Canon 7D, and the original video plays much smoother on my computer. I am new to this game, and I used the recommended compression settings for YouTube, but I am disappointed at the choppy playback of the video on the web (both on Vimeo and YouTube). I suspect my settings could be improved - any suggestions for better settings would be greatly ...
Short clip of Diego Huerta's photography workshop for students at Amarillo College in Amarillo, Texas on April 16, 2010. Everyone loved Diego and his wife Daniela...both of them shared information with us about lighting, making a living as a photographer and how to set up professional shoots. What a great experience for the students (and me too). Thanks to Brent Cavanaugh at AC for organizing this workshop. See Diego Huerta's beautiful photo of the workshop participants here: 3.bp.blogspot.com And Diego Huerta's blog post about this workshop: diegohuerta.blogspot.com To see Diego's brilliant photographs and learn more about him, go to: diegohuerta.blogspot.com diegohuerta.com twitter.com The video was shot with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16 - 50mm f2.8 lens, and a Sigma 30mm f1.2 lens. Editing done in Premiere Pro CS4. I used color grading and adjusted levels...still waiting for my Fader ND lens to arrive. Only one clip required image stabilization (I am proud to say). As far as my Canon 7D...is it OK to fall in love with a camera, or is that a bit weird? Video and editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "At Eleven O'clock" by Jack Francis Purchased license from http
Short night test of the Canon 7D and the Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens. The title was added later...inspired by the soundtrack that I chose. The recently restored Paramount sign in downtown Amarillo was originally part of a great old theater that I often went to with my grandparents when I was a child...so besides its beauty, it holds great sentimental value for me. I shot and edited all the footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. The only thing done to the original footage is some image stabilization due to the annoying gusts of wind that night. There is no color grading or level manipulation - pretty raw, but I wanted to see what my 7D could do with this scene late at night with very little available light. Video and editing by Victoria Taylor-Gore www.victoriataylorgore.com Music - "Diffractions" by Eric Bode music license purchased from http
This is just a short test (with an old phone that I had for years) to play with my Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro lens and the Canon 7D using Photoshop CS4 effects. Effects were applied frame by frame in Photoshop CS4 (the "watercolor" filter) and then I exported a high quality AVI to use in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. There was only a little tweaking done in Premiere (such as some levels adjustments and flickering effects, but no color grading). I used the tungsten white balance setting on my Canon 7D and shot in pretty low light. I didn't use any audio from the original footage...not sure how one would handle that. I'm just learning all of this myself so here is a tutorial on using Photoshop for video from Adobe TV: tv.adobe.com . I'll warn you that this process of adding frame by frame Photoshop filters to a video in Photoshop is very time consuming and takes a lot of processing power. I was unable to directly import the Photoshop file with the video into Premiere directly because it was a huge file and it would freeze up Premiere. I finally had to export the video out of Photoshop as an AVI file (Cinepak, best quality, original video frame rate, unchecked and left blank "key frame every" and "limit data to") to get the video out of Photoshop to behave in Premiere and keep high quality. It was worth it - I love the almost film noir 1940's - 1950's look the watercolor Photoshop filter created and the soft yet somewhat gritty texture. There is a lot of potential for creating more ...
This is a remix of some earlier animations of my pastels. Using Photoshop, I have isolated different areas of a few pastels and then imported the flat 2D "sets" into After Effects CS4 and put them on 3D layers so that the viewer can visually travel through the drawings. Final editing was in Premiere Pro CS4. My pastels are usually simplified landscapes and architectural spaces with exaggerated perspective, and the 3D layer manipulation of my work in After Effects (with its inherent warping and distortion of form) plays well into my artistic style.

Video edited by Victoria Taylor-Gore with Adobe After Effects CS4 and Premiere Pro CS4. Music "Truth" by composer: Julio Kladniew Purchased license for this song from musicloops.com www.musicloops.com Original video footage (public domain) "The City (Part II) (1939)" from the Prelinger Archives www.archive.org The inspiration for this video was derived from a purely visual attraction to work with imagery from "The City (Part II) (1939)" and how I could "paint" and overlay sections of the video to hint at a poetic meaning...not a literal story. After the fact, I realized that "Airplane" had in it elements of my most favorite poem - draw whatever conclusions you want. "We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. Through the unknown, unremembered gate When the last of earth left to discover Is that which was the beginning; At the source of the longest river The voice of the hidden waterfall And the children in the apple-tree Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillness Between two waves of the sea." - from Little Gidding (No. 4 of 'Four Quartets') by TSEliot
A remixed short for the song "Cinnamon Road" by Shawn Colvin - Video by Victoria Taylor-Gore - www.victoriataylorgore.com . I edited and remixed some old public domain Chevrolet commercials (I love classic Chevys) in Adobe After Effects CS4 and Premiere Pro CS4. Some of the specific effects in After Effects were "find edges," "cartoon," "glow," "smart blur," and some color and value manipulation with "curves."

One of my YouTube/Facebook friends Glideascope (a brilliant musician/composer based in London) asked me to do a video for one of his songs called CB Radio from the album Audio Cinematography. Here I am in Amarillo, Texas collaborating on a video with a DownTempo, Chill Out and a sprinkling of Trip-Hop dub musician in London! Concepts for the CB Radio video have evolved between Glideascope and me over the past few weeks, as my technical abilities have struggled to keep pace with the visual demands of the project. This video is not the typical music video. Glideascopes song CB Radio is an exquisite layering of audio textures and impressions, and my challenge has been to make the videos visual impact reflect the visceral qualities and movement of the music. Glideascope has given me suggestions and feedback that have made the video a truly collaborative work of art and music. - Victoria Taylor-Gore Glideascope Links: Website: www.glideascope.com Twitter twitter.com FaceBook: www.facebook.com YouTube: www.youtube.com MySpace: www.myspace.com Victoria Taylor-Gore Links: Website: www.victoriataylorgore.com Blog www.anartjournal.com YouTube www.youtube.com

This is a remake of my earlier Rothko Video with a few new touches and much better quality. Here is the statement in the video: "Statement, June 7, 1943 by Mark Rothko, Adolf Gottlieb, Barnett Newman 1. To us art is an adventure into an unknown world, which can be explored only by those willing to take the risks. 2. This world of imagination is fancy-free and violently opposed to common sense. 3. It is our function as artists to make the spectator see the world our way not his way. 4. We favor the simple expression of the complex thought. We are for the large shape because it has the impact of the unequivocal. We wish to reassert the picture plane. We are for flat forms because they destroy illusion and reveal truth. 5. It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as a good painting about nothing. We assert that the subject is crucial and only that subject matter is valid which is tragic and timeless. That is why we profess spiritual kinship with primitive and archaic art."

My friend Randy asked me to make a video about Reinhardt...this is my humble attempt. Ad Reinhardt was an Abstract Expressionist painter that worked in New York from the 1930's to the 1960's. The passages in the video are from a poem called "The More Loving One" by WH Auden that Reinhardt copied on one of his many pages of notes on art. It is hard to appreciate the subtle color nuances in his paintings from photographs, so I hope you will see Reinhardt's work in person someday :) The part of the poem that I used in the video is: Admirer as I think I am Of stars that do not give a damn, I cannot, now I see them, say I missed one terribly all day. Were all stars to disappear or die, I should learn to look at an empty sky And feel its total darkness sublime, Though this might take me a little time. Hear WH Auden read the entire poem: www.npr.org Reinhardt claimed that his "black" or "ultimate" paintings were the "last paintings" that anyone can paint. To me the poem by WH Auden reflects the mystery of his minimal work. The music is "Edge of Love" by Mindy Smith. My website: www.victoriataylorgore.com

This is a video that I made about artist Giorgio de Chirico...he has had such a lasting influence on my own art. The video was made with MemoriesOnTV4 and Crazytalk software. The narrator's voices are created with several text to speech voices (I hate the sound of my own voice, and I can't afford to hire talent for the narration!). My website: www.victoriataylorgore.com
This is the first part of a two part video (see my channel for part two) that I made as an introduction to Prehistoric Art in an online art history class. I used MemoriesOnTV4 and Crazytalk software to make this video, and the narrator's voice is a Cepstral text-to-speech voice (I can't afford to hire talent to narrate my videos!).

This is a video I created about Vincent van Gogh using Reallusion's Crazytalk software. This is my first attempt of using Crazytalk, and it has amazing potential for bringing my art history presentations to life. The narrator's voice is the Lawrence text-to-speech voice from Cepstral. Some demos of their voices are here: www.cepstral.com . I like using another voice - hate the sound of my own voice! I downloaded and installed Cepstral's Lawrence voice on my computer, and after that it appeared as an optional voice in Crazytalk. I wrote the script directly in Crazytalk with a few manipulations (like using commas for pauses, creatively spelling words the way the sound, and breaking up syllables) so the voice will pronounce things right. Most of the characters that speak in the video are made from Vincent van Gogh's paintings, except the first character - that is Paul Gauguin speaking about Vincent.
