Fish food video

Fish Food from Bart Kowalski on Vimeo. A quick video I put together for a blog post I wrote. I did this one with Adobe Premiere, as a test to see what it was like. It was good. In short, it kicks Final Cut Pro’s arse when it comes to a newb video editor like me. I like it very much and will be using it for the next few video edits....

Movember 2009

Movember effort 2009 from Bart Kowalski on Vimeo. In 2009 I participated in Movember. If you don’t know what Movember is, you should read this quick summary. In short, I raised $385! So, I thought while I was doing this to myself, I should document it. This is the result. Really, this was a way for me to find out how to make a...

The Shift

The Shift from Bart Kowalski on Vimeo. When we moved into our apartment in Kuala Lumpur in 2010, I thought I’d set up the camera and see if I could get a time lapse capture of the movers doing their thing. I had nothing in the apartment to put the camera on, so it sits on the floor in the corner. It was a bit of an experiment. I...

Raindrop

Raindrop from Bart Kowalski on Vimeo. It was really coming down on afternoon (in Kuala Lumpur) so I got my camera and 50mm 1.4 lens out to see if I could capture an interesting contrast between the raindrops on the window and the bokeh of the outside world. Nothing really came of it, but I followed a single raindrop running down the...

All The Time In The World

All The Time In The World from Bart Kowalski on Vimeo. I was in Cambodia in 2009 with a couple of friends and my future-wife. While in a tuk-tuk going out for the evening, I uncovered my camera and started shooting some stuff. I didn’t know whether I would use it for anything but I thought I’d see what I could get. In the end...

Ambrette

Ambrette from Bart Kowalski on Vimeo. Marty & Jane at The Order in Melbourne. This is my first crack at doing something useful with footage from a canon 5D mk II, using Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro. The soundtrack was scored ‘live’ in a single take using Bloom for iPhone, while I watched the edit in FCP. My computer...

Website: Cakes of Taste

Website design for Cakes of Taste, a Melbourne-based collection of cake artists. This project had a tight deadline and budget, and my design concept was created and mocked up within eight hours(!), with a further four needed for refinement and multiple page templates. It was a speedy effort! The design for this site needed to follow from...

Website: Seek Watercooler Index

Seek.co.nz needed a design for a new section of their website which contained poll questions, answers, and user comments, called Seek Watercooler Index. The concept of the watercooler — a place where people gather to talk and gossip — was brought to us by the client, and thought it would be perfect to make the website an actual...
