Trapeze hands raw like sushi, escape from the party meant perfectly sync-ing a 3 storey swing with fairylights to a rapidly approaching motorcyclist below. Unsquinting at the task, the fresh from artskool babe landed on the beat in the swivelling sidecar beside the suave and lanky scientist whose genetically modified scarf flapped calmly in the breeze. The dashing duo silhouetted in the setting sun, were of course, Sydney’s Eye-Fi, motion graphic specialists on their way to an important interview:
The Eye-fi Audiovisual experience in your words?
2 speed video gear change. hi or low is the way we go.
What technology and processes do u enjoy using?
Eyefi enjoy tending our a/v crops. they grow and we harvest them. Over the fast last 5 years our process has changed. We used to sample + recomp + program image/effect sequences, but now we design + animate from scratch and access tanks of QTmovies. Effects come later in the design and patch process.
What crops are on the Eye-fi farm?
Mutant crop rotation, now havesting with nato… and minimal design
How much do eye-fi hi-5 the lo-fi?
Love lo-fi. Many powerbook artists who use the p.b. as fx unit are suffering from low frame rates. now it just looks like the fashion.
