Dusk

I wanted to create a video that was rather abstract, but still played within the confines of time. I wanted multiple frames of the source video to be included on screen in a way where it would be hard to tell what the original movie was. Using openFrameworks I created two different settings. One captures the screen then draws that captured image back to screen in random places over top of the original image. The second draws the video to an FBO that again draws a subsection to random places. Since the FBO is not cleared old frames stay displayed until their alpha values finally get completely overwritten by new frames. The FBO is then added to an ofTexture and is additive blended with a white rectangle. In both settings the mouse controls the alpha value. I improvised between the two settings and with the alpha values. The original video was shot with my iPhone on the Brooklyn Bridge at dusk. I made the music too. Code for the video:
