The aim of tilt-shift Dublin is to create a high quality tilt-shift style time lapse video, without the use of tilt-shift lenses. This will be done in post-processing. Tilt-shift Dublin will be completed by June 2013 and will launch with an accompanying website which will contain our creative process and an in-depth tutorial on who to create your own tilt-shift video.

As a group we all decided on a nice design for our webiste. The main aims and goals for the website was to showcase our tilt-shift photography and video that we collected over the months. We all decided that a ‘portfolio’ style website would best suit. We kept colours very minimal as there are so many colourful images that act as the main focus of attention on the website. We also wanted to make the site responsive so that viewers can view the site nicely on all screen sizes and mobile devices. My job was to make the site responsive, build the basic layout, add in jquery and give the page basic styling. I used em’s and %’s to style the page and also added media queries. We decided to keep the site in only one page, as we felt it did not need to be any more than one to effectively show the project.I used a jquery parallax scroller to add to the user experience while navigating through the site.We wanted the site to showcase our work including photography, so I used responsive jquery gallery wookmark for our images. You can download wookmark here http://www.wookmark.com/. I also made a cinemagraph gif in Adobe photoshop, to be a main feature of the homepage.
Liberty Insurance shoot
Olivia Ricci 17th of May 2013
Today we visited Liberty Insurance Blanchardstown, where we were given permission to film from the 10th floor garden. The view was amazing and there were some great opportunities to get some great shots, which show Blanchardstown as a toy like model. I filmed some shots of the Blanchardstown centre and the surrounding areas. Shots were composed to show how busy and energetic the Blanchardstown area is. We got lots of cars and people moving around, which I think is going to look great when the tilt-shift effect is applied in post processing. This particular shoot gave us some great footage for our final video and is much different to all of the other city and seaside shots we have. Here are some photographs taken on the shoot. I used instagram to apply the tilt-shift technique.
Thanks to Liberty Insurance for giving us permission to film!
Queen Mary 2 arrived to Dun Laoghaire which gave us perfect opportunity to grab some shots for our Tilt Shift project since it is pretty high boat. A friend of ours is working there and she could organize pass for us and transport. The sea was rough and we had small crash while we attempted to mooring. After that we had to wait over and hour for better weather which gave us only half an hour to shoot but it was worth since we did not have a footage from the sea facing Dublin.
Since Croke Park platform is one of the best known landmark of the Dublin and has platform Etihad Skyline platform from where is perfect view at almost whole area we could not omit this location for shooting for our project. Thanks to management we got permission to record for over half an hour in the early morning not being interrupted by other visitors. The experience was truly memorable.

Here are some stills from the footage I took at our shoot on the rooftop of Bewleys Hotel near Dublin airport. I used a Canon Legria HFS10 HD. This particular location enabled us to capture some nice colourful green landscapes, which are a nice contrast to the urban city shots.
