Short video from last week's Lux Helsinki 2019. Footage is from two different night. There might be some continuity errors because of that.
This was first time in year I didn't go to Taiteiden Yö with intention to shoot videos. Few years ago there were many events out doors to shoot. Last years there have been more events but almost everything has been indoors. I made this choice after trying to figure out what to shoot and finding only one which would work as video. Next year I probably just go there to enjoy the events and forget video and stills. This is what I got this year.
Lux Helsinki 2018 starts tomorrow. Here is video I shot from last year's event. You have to wait two weeks for this year's video. I don't know which day I go there. Probably not tomorrow. Which means I would have to do editing and music during workdays' evenings if I wanted video ready next week. Lux Helsinki 2016 had cold weather. This had little snow but weather was quite warm for winter and snow was melting away. This year it looks like no snow and even warmer weather.
You can find video from Lux Helsinki 2016 here.
This is second part of lighting the darkness trilogy. First part was last week's Return of Black Christmas and third one will be Lux 2018. Each video show how to light the darkness that is Helsinki during end of December and beginning of January.
Weather was same as week before, but this time there were more people and fireworks.
Another year. Another Christmas Eve at the center of Helsinki. Another video about black Christmas. This is little bit shorter than I planned. I forgot to take spare batteries with me. Battery run out early due cold weather. It might have been blessing since I was feeling quite cold at that point.
Style was more subtle than I thought when I shot the video. It works better with faster moving objects than people. Music is original music done with Albion V Tundra and AIR Vacuum Pro.
Without Climate change we would have snow by now. We have had snow couple days but no more that two days at the time. I don't want snow that much but if it is going to be cold it could have snow too. This is winter in Finland. So there were almost nobody around. If you have followed me on Instagram you have seen these places couple times before.
