"Faces of Steemfest" Portugal , Lisbon - Video

in life •  7 months ago

I'm fairly new in Steem, and indeed it was my first time on steemfest.

One important thing I've discovered it's the fact that it doesn't matter where do you come
from,what is your wallet status neither how do you look or what have you done in the past.
At the steemfest I felt like we all shared similar thoughts and most important you could feel
that spirit floating around. I remember when on the closing evening dinner everyone was shouting "STEEM STEEM STEEM" Someone said - " This is a little bit like a cult, but i like it " , whatever it is - I like it too

During the first night, when I was filming people mingling so I've got some footage for @steemfest after movie,
I was thinking what else I can do with having only a camera and lens with me. Immediately I've noticed that there is something in all of us, something unique.
So I came up with an idea to create moving portrait of the people attending this amazing five days,
I shared this idea with @basilmarples who gave me encourage to make it happen.
At the start was pretty difficult as not everyone wanted to pose, even my trick was to tell the person that I want to take picture. Instead I've filmed 2 seconds in 50fps so I could slow-mo afterwards.

Portugal and Lisbon it's a lovely place,food is amazing, entertainments and talks at steemfest great but I believe the biggest power was the people attending this wonderful event and I hope you can get at least a little bit of feel in this video.

If you are not in the video and you would like to be - I'm sorry, there was disaster happened at some point, and perhaps I will write post about it at some point. Hit me next year, as I will continue other projects in the future.

Awesome video montage of some many amazing faces at steemfest2! Thanks for letting me know that I was in this video. Love it at 3:19 when I appear dancing like everyone's watching and then @firepower laughs at me ^_^

·

Yeap it's funny, obviously it's just montage, but it worked :) Not laughing though, he is just happy people enjoy ;)

·
·

Oh yeah, it worked really well... and it is original. Well I like my interpretation too, it makes it funny ^_^

Fantastic job!
I love your work here @mynewlife, brings back so many amazing memories of last week 🤗

·

Thank you..... I'm glad people like it

That is soooo cool! :-)
A really nice idea perfectly put into practice.
Resteemed

·

Thank you. I'm glad you like it.....

That video is amaaazing! It really captures the energy and happiness of SteemFest. Made me smile the entire time. :) I'm not sure if we got the chance to meet while we were there, so hopefully we will at the next one. Good luck catchin' me on camera, though—super shy! lol

·

Funny enough, you were first person caught on camera while in hotel window , for some reason we didn't have chance to catch up with a little chat afterwards... Maybe next year

·
·

Omg I remember that! @shenanigator and I were looking out the window with our SteemFest scarves on! Too bad we didn't get a chance to chat. Definitely next year. :)

I was curious to know what those still shots were. This turned out to be amazing. I'm gonna try this sometime on my videos.

·

Yes sure man, always try think out of the box :)

that was really lovely. music selection, speed of the video, everything. nice work! :) you really captured the vibe! :)

·

Thank you... I wish I've got everyone in it and it goes for 10 minutes ....

maaaan, you totally rocked it. This is amazing, you are a stunning photographer (you're photographs are good too ;p) and you definitely made the most of this opportunity. Such an evocative and juicy set of portraits. p.s. Got you again @surfermarly mwahahah! x

·

People at steemfest gave me extra inspiration. That what I was about, people appreciate projects like this. Give me push to do more ....

So much love in this video! Wish you could have captured everyone. Next year you’ll need two assistants making sure everyone gets photographed 😁

·

Thank you Evellina, I would get everyone if...... You know ;) . I think I will do this as on going project, just with different lighting set up, it can't be the same every year... How about uncovered series :P ......

·
·

I know I know. I don’t think a lot of people would uncover themselves 😛

·
·
·

probably some would do it... BUT I am not sure if others want to see that ;-)

Beautiful! I recognise most of the faces. You've captured the Steemfest's mood in a really nice way. Well done!

(4:32 thank you very much!!!!) SO many familiar places and faces (just like Mad World...my favorite song), and incredible trick to do it (as a photographer I just say... applause ...) and and and.... I don't know what else to say... I can't write anymore! Oh yeah, upvoted 100%, resteemed and followed - that means we actually met, since I'm on it too hahaha :D KEEP THE SF Memory ALIVE! This is what helps us all cope with Post LX SF [Lisbon SteemFest] Depression, as I wrote on one of my latest SF related posts... From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU for this @mynewlife !!!!

Thank you I would have more faces in the story (I call it story), however there was a trick in the process of making it, perhaps one day I'll write post about it.
