One day i had this idea that maybe if filming with a camera the falling of dominoes from a close point of view, maybe, and i repeat MAYBE, i could get an effect very similar to what the zoetrope produced. When the Boston Independent Film Festival asked me to create a trailer for them, i thought that it was a good opportunity to try and turn that maybe into something more concrete. I asked my father to create an interactive data sheet to calculate all the factors i needed to have determined before even proposing the idea. We then decided to use a motorized camera travelling on rounded tracks. But when after the 10th take we realized that the dominoes would speed up or slow down in some points and the camera would bump into them, i was a little desperate. So i asked if we could move the camera manually. That’s when key-grip Alvaro came in: he followed the fall so well that at the end of the take everyone clapped their hands. Another victory for man over machine.

PRODUCTION NOTES

The following is the Excel datasheet my father prepared. I could input the height of the dominoes, the width, the number and the distance between them. Then Excel would calculate at which height there would be the impact with the next domino, how much space was left to show the image, how big would the circumference be, and the diameter. All this mess was fundamental for the pre-production stage, to realize how big the tracks would have to be, if the proportions were right and countless other little details.

The Excel datasheet was also crucial for me to decide how many seconds of video i had to shoot. Just imagine the satisfaction when i layed down the dominoes for the first time and they fit perfectly into the circumference…

As we’ve found as of late, chaep replica watches brands are making Replica Hublot Swiss Made a special effort to accomplish new records in slimness, as well as in the level of entanglement and multifaceted nature that they pack into those super-thin developments and cases. Here are seven late illustrations of timepieces that (at any rate for the occasion) have set records for slenderness in their individual classifications.

World’s Thinnest Minute Repeater (Current)

Presented at Baselworld 2016, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater, now asserts the title of littlest striking cheap fake watches available, a title that had been held already by Jaeger-LeCoultre (see underneath). Striking swiss replica watches convey a few particular development limitations, and require an abnormal state of mastery to accomplish the testing objective of a serious, completely clear replique montre de luxe ring with a uniform, reliable rhythm when the component is initiated. Normally, such a tag heuer replica watches for sale watch replica watches has a tendency to be on the huge side, because of the requirement for adequately liberal inside volume for ideal dissemination of the sound inside of the case, in this manner guaranteeing perfect acoustic quality. Bulgari, be that as it may, set out to accomplish this “immaculate sound” inside of the littlest conceivable space. To this end, the brand built up the in-house BVL Caliber 362, which measures only 3.12 mm thick, and made a case whose general thickness is just 6.85 mm. The case is made of titanium, whose low-thickness properties turned replique montre out to be fabulous for sound dispersion. Another sharp touch was the removed hour-markers on the dial (additionally made of titanium) and cut-out ring around the little seconds subdial, which made openings Replica Tag Heuer that serve to enhance the reverberation inside the case and in this manner enhance the sound impact. More detail on that watch can be found here.
