Amateur video making has been long determined to be a film making practice far removed from professionals. YouTube was originally a platform for these individuals to share their work. With the advent of faster, stronger, and, ultimately, more accessible technology, amateur and veteran videographers are becoming harder and harder to distinguish. Now, the video sharing site provides both high and low production quality content.
Videographer Paul Parker is a man fascinated by nature, and his organic-inspired content is a good example of both creative and high-quality work on YouTube. After setting up his camera for one hour, pointed toward the sky, he captures the flight patterns of seagulls. After running the time lapse through Adobe’s After Effects, the video shows a unique perspective on the world of bird behavior.
