Mt. St. Helens Ash Events
In March of 1980, after about a week of harmonic tremors, Mt. St. Helens, known as Loowit, or "Fire Mountain" to the locals, sprang to life with a series of small ash eruptions. Over the course of the next month and a half, the volcano continued with these small events, as the North face of the mountain continued to expand. The "bubble popped" on the morning of May 18, when about a third of the mountain was elevated to great heights. The small events featured in these clips were shot a month prior to the main event of May 18, the weekend of April 19 and 20, 1980. The location was a clear-cut hill several miles South of Kalama Springs. The footage was Kodachrome Super 8mm. Interval for the "slow" views was one frame every 2 seconds. The "fast" scenes were one frame every 20 seconds.

Homer's View - June 5, 2011
The following is written in pencil on the West wall of GeerCrest Farm by Homer Davenport on April 11, 1904: "I want to say that from this old porch I see my favorite view of all that the earth affords. It was the favorite of my dear Mother and her parents and of my Father; And why shouldn't it be the same to me? Its where my happiest hours have been spent." This premiere edition of "Homer's View" features the GeerCrest sheep, as they work the fields, set to the fiddle strains of "The Old Hen Cackled" by Homer Davenport and the Young Brothers, recorded in April of 1925. (Obviously a different Homer).

Centrifugal  Sickness  Machines
Another GoPro Photo-Phun-Run. This time with Slow Motion and spinning "amusement rides" at the Oregon State Fair. These were shot at 240 frames per second, rendered out 12%, slowing the motion by a factor of eight. I neglected to use the "Flux" feature of GoPro Studio for all the clips except one, due to the super-long extra render time. But that one did seem to come out somewhat "smoother" than the rest. The music was from an old album of "production music" geared towards "sinister settings..." Seems to fit!
