Fernando Conducting the Valencia Film Orchestra

Video 63 of my #100videoclips project is an animated gif of my student Fernando from my music video production class at Berklee Valencia. He is preparing to conduct the first Valencia Film Orchestra concert at the Palau de la Música in Valencia, Spain.

I think the stop-motion nature of the gif does a good job of capturing the energy of his conducting.

For the image processing, I did the following:

  • Dodge the background to get a clean white
  • Decrease the saturation and increase the contrast
  • Create an animated gif with approx. 3 frames per second
