So I decided to spend some time doing an expiremental video of food colouring dropped into a clear acrylic box of water. I wanted to see what would happen and the different effects that could be created and how good it would look when filmed. The effect was much better then I ever thourght it would look, please check the video to see for yourself.
In order to film it the camera was placed to look through one side of the clear arcylic box as I dropped different colour food dies into the water. I did multiple takes with different colour 1 red, 1 blue, 1 green and one take with many colours together. I then did a rough edit layering the videos together and put it all to some music.
I shot the video in 1080i and have uploaded a 720p version to vimeo, in order to watch it in HD you’ll have to head on over to the vimeo site. (links below)
