This Is Japan

This is Japan! from Eric Testroete on Vimeo.

Eric Testroete created this video comprised of all photos he took on a recent trip to Japan, which is an amazing idea and beautifully executed. I want a camera like his, but after asking a photographer it seems the colouring of the photos was created while processing them. Apparently this can only be done if shooting raw files, which explains why these photos amount to 46gb!

“We never went there with the plan to do this, but one night we were looking at the pictures so far. We held down the button to get through the pictures faster and we noticed it looked fairly cool. I figured it would be a good idea to make a video this way.

I used lightroom to crop and process all the images (its good at doing batch stuff), Métamorphose to rename the exported files into a numbered sequence, sony vegas to cut to music, then virtual dub to compress and scale.

The video is running at 6 frames a second. I originally took 3340 pictures, but doing the math there should be about 2760 images in the video. The camera was a pentax k20d and I brought an external hard drive to save what ended up being 46 gigs in raw files.”
