14 Oct RIDE WITH ME – A NEW PROJECT
Getting outside, watching the seasons change and the routine of doing the same activity every day, has really helped my head space over the past couple of months. I love my bike so much!
I’ve been shooting a daily pic over my handlebars pretty much every day since Sept 1st, mostly shot in the same place to really notice the difference in the sky and surroundings each day.
Then recently I started creating mini videos of my ride, as I’ve started listening to music while I’m in the park (just one headphone, so I’m still aware of what’s going on around me) and now the Reels feature on Instagram lets you use any track… I’ve been using the music I’ve been listening to or songs that have been stuck in my head.
I can’t use the music to archive these videos on Vimeo, so I created multiple frame compilations instead, like below. Just so I’ve got memories of these uplifting rides… and I like how they look together.
Let’s see how long I can keep this daily activity going into winter and beyond. Might be harder than the 100 days project, as that was in the spring/summer. But I know the benefits of getting outside no matter what, so that should spur me on.
If you’d like more guidance to start shooting and editing video to make your own films… My online course Handmade Film Making is happening from Oct 22nd and the self paced version is available anytime. You can find more details HERE.
