Friendly Fires – Skeleton Boy time-lapse video. Live at Soundcontrol, Manchester 12/05/2011

Messing around with with video settings on my new-ish Canon G12 camera at a gig last night, and discovered the "miniature" setting. Basically a tilt-shift setting, which blurs the top and bottom a bit.

What I didn't realise is that it also plays back at x10 speed and with no sound.

I'm a bit gutted there's no sound as this was one of the best songs of the night, but then at 10x it would be rubbish - which I didn't realise at the time either. I would also have liked the tilt-shift blurriness to have been a bit stronger, as at the minute its more of a time-lapse video rather than minature or tilt-shift. - more play needed I think.

I still think it looks kinda cool being condensed down into 24 seconds - The light show was really good considering the relatively small size of the gig and lead singer Ed Macfarlane dances around like a mad man.

Anyway I thought I'd post it up, so hear it is.  Let me know what you think.
