Take a Picture: Promo

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2010 is coming up in less than a week now, and it’s getting harder for me to contain my excitement.

If you haven’t been to the Take a Picture video page, you might have missed the two promo videos Brad and I have released for the Take a Picture project. Not to worry, I’m not going to send you on an internet scavenger hunt. I have included both of the videos with this post!

Hopping over to YouTube will allow you to view these videos in glorious 1080p high definition. To be honest, I don’t have a 1080p monitor, so I haven’t even seen these videos at full resolution yet. Tell me how they look.
I didn’t want to post the HD versions here, since the standard definition version is already too big for the page, and I don’t feel like modifying a bunch of .css pages to make this entry fit my theme. a standard definition preview gets the point across just as well, and if the content is worth watching, that extra quality isn’t necessary.

I really hope these short little promo spots will provide some encouragement to head out on the night of October 2nd, venture on over to 88 Ossington, walk up to the second floor of LeVack Block, and see these things in person.

Don’t forget to bring a camera. Digital, not film.

well…film isn’t forbidden; you are certainly welcome to bring a film camera and take as many pictures as you would like, but the effect will not work, the hidden images will only reveal themselves to digital sensors.


I also have a bunch of behind-the-scenes footage of the construction process some interviews that I will share in a new entry after the event, and there is at least one more video to put together and post in the next few days. And a final video that was put together and posted last night.
