Raw form of a single uninterrupted shot

During the last couple of weeks Fisheye has been busy producing videos and photography  “all over the place”. After Chile, Ivory Coast, France, Switzerland and Portugal, a “one-taker” in Turkey for Bekaert Textiles completed the list ! Check this !

It was quite a challenge to put office and plant shots smoothly together.

What is it about one-take video clips that capture the imagination ? Perhaps it’s because we’ve become so cynical about video editings that the pure, raw form of a single, uninterrupted shot truly stands out.

Would  a one-take angle require a lot of rehearsal and coordination ?
Indeed, it would and it did ! But, we managed  very well with a compact crew of two camera operators, assisted by very helpful local workers

Design process for a new TV studio

There is a lot to do about innovation design en design thinking this year. So we sat down with our designer Michel Nols. We call Michel a ‘space designer’. Here, he gives you some insights on the design process for a television studio:

Michel Nols: “Avondgasten is a format that takes place right after the six o’clock news when two anchors and six guests elaborate on the latest news items in a light,  friendly and cozy setting. This format requires a warm, pleasant atmosphere in which a friendly dialogue can develop. Continue reading “Design process for a new TV studio” »

123 PIANO

123 piano kitted 8 artists out with a location and a piano. Fisheye was among the fortunate ones (thanks City of Ghent, thanks Sioen). We don’t mind taking pianos apart, particularly when it helps to fight crankiness. For, that’s the objective of projects such as 123 piano: more happiness in the city. As usual, we took the thing apart and toyed both with shape and content.

Except for the fact that our piano looks a bit Knight Rider futuristic, it’s good to know that you can at the same time listen and look at the music it produces. The software we produced translates the piano sound into a color pattern. The algorithm is written in such a way that it sometimes follows the piano sound and at other times wanders off. It’s never a verbatim translation. It’s a most unusual, unique experience, both for the musician and the audience.

You’ll find the Fisheye piano in the railway station Gent Sint-Pieters.
Come along, listen and watch.
