Multi-scopic Camera Technique
I have been wanting to experiment with creating a multi-scopic camera technique for a while and this short promo sting for the upcoming Isaac Himself release seemed like an ideal opportunity.

Perhaps this video isn't the best example to show off the technique, but it is definitely something that I am keen to experiment with more. Using expressions in After Effects I created a 4x camera rig where the focal points remain the same for each camera. Each frame of the animation is then taken sequentially from the 4 cameras and the 'shift' (or distance between each of the camera positions) is influeced by the music.

Datamoshing - A test video
For those of you who don't know, datamoshing is a technique where you can take advantage of how video encoding works to create a visually rich (but often unpredictable) effect.

I became interested in this technique after I saw this excellent Chairlift music video.

I then followed the insightful How To Data Mosh videos made by the person who behind the above music video. 

Not wanting to simply copy the technique I spent some time exploring the process and I have created a method that uses a combination of expressions and layer markers in After Effects to generate a text list that acts as the 'edit' information in the avidemux project file. The result of all this is that I am able to create a datamosh effect that is tightly linked to the music. I plan to explore this technique further.

(Apologies to Cursor Miner for (mis)use of the green screen footage. It's the quickest thing I had at hand)
