The 4th of July, Unfocused

This is just a very hastily made video that I created with some of my footage from the 4th. I had seen the idea previously here: http://vimeo.com/6157370, and I was just kind of mesmerized by it. So at the next chance I had to capture some fireworks footage, I decided to give it a try. I've always loved the look of out-of-focus light, and I think fireworks have to be the most exciting form of this that I've seen. Wish I would've had a tripod for this, as I think it would've made it a little better, but I was just traveling light and taking all the video from my back while watching the show. Also, sometime I'd like to spend a little more time on the edit. I just really wanted to get something up, even though I don't have a lot of time right now, but I think some very cool things could be done with time remapping and reversing the footage. Maybe sometime.
