Happy Cycling by Boards of Canada Video

Sun Jul 01, 2018 8:03 pm

In my new quest to work out what you can do with Magic, I created this music video for one of my favourite Boards of Canada songs:


I was trying to mix in more actual footage along with graphics. The animated cyclists and running man were originally gif's but I converted them into mp4's in order incorporate them. I was particularly pleased with the short film of seagulls which I linked to the speed of the song. I also had a lot of fun with the man running away from Godzilla.

In order to get the effect of the fellow running along a roller coaster, I used https://www.kapwing.com to reverse the video I had of a the Big One on Blackpool Pleasure Beach in the UK.

I'm beginning to see the potential of Magic as an alternative to editing in a more traditional way and it's really interesting how modules can be arranged to get the desired effect.
