Today, somewhere in the past, I'm on a boat with my Mom and Dad.
This is how it started:
My strides were slightly affected by the constraints of the camera's long-exposure settings. Here's the first "shorter" stride, where I ran normally but tried to elongate the movements to make sure the camera observed a full sequence. It's not perfect; clearly, you can see a dismembered foot.
Through pacing trial and error, we observed this (and it felt much more natural):
And another good take:
Regardless of constraints (like shooting in daytime, 3 levels down in a parking garage), it came out quite well. It taught me that I have a (mostly) consistent stride that makes attractive patterns. I hope we can redo this with more accuracy in the future.
Thanks to Brendan for camera & cinematography.
Apparently this is how I look when I'm sprinting up a hill and trying to smile.
