When we took the Kalamazoo out on the scientific expedition last month, I made sure to ask people to get lots of footage. Why? Because I wanted to do a music video. I had coincidentally become totally hooked on Caravan Palace not long before. It was a perfect combination, so I went for it. Of course, Burning Man got in the way, but better late than never. Here it is!

Wow, that's wonderful. The arm-mounted camera really made it work as a music video.

I like the way the ending music ties in with the transition down to the historical photo. Also the fisheye effect from the end of the lever arm is cool.

Yeah, the arm-mounted camera shots are really awesome and also kind of wig me out.

I saw the same technique used on a fencing rapier and wigged out extra hard.

Fun! And agreed that the arm-mounted camera totally makes it. Also I liked the shot rolling over a camera a lot. And the switch to the arm-mounted camera facing forwards when the music changed was really well done!

I succumbed to taste and/or modesty and edited out the upskirt which followed in a couple of frames on the rolling over shot. :)

Blah blah wonderful blah arm shot makes it blah blah blah good music choice blah.

I guess I could've just posted "+1"?

Oh shit, was that a drive-by hipstering? I guess I should have realized I was in for that when I made a music video.

For the record, you're somewhat responsible for the outfit I had, and wanting to get some of those shots in the first place, from a comment of yours linking to some historical costume site on the original Kalamazoo brainstorming post I made about 2 years ago. So, thanks. :)

As I typed it I thought to myself, "I'm trying to say that I agree with everyone, but it reads like I'm just being a snarky asshole". Now I know I was correct in that thought.

Re: outfit - Awesome! Way to follow through.

Nothing wrong with being a snarky asshole!

I love the flywheel design and the finials, both the ones for the lanterns and the ones at the beam pivot. Did you smith those?

What a great video.

Yeah, those came out of about 7 forge sessions last year. I might have had the damn thing working properly back then if I hadn't sunk so much time into them.

And thanks. :)
