Balance Study


Balance Study, Heel-Toe from Jacob Tonski on Vimeo.
What in the hey-diddly-H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks is going on here? Jacob Tonski has built an intriguing machine and produced a really cool video. Bonus points for holding some of it together with wood clamps. Makes it look so prototypish!

  1. Paul, this immediately reminded me of Fred Astaire's ceiling dance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8n7WQIXQDs

  2. Reminds me of a video that made the rounds earlier this year of a camera on the end of a sword looking at the holder, interesting perspectives. Also reminds me a little of the 'Mystery Shack' at the ghost town I grew up near (http://www.calicotown.com/)

  3. Vimeo is horrible (or at least it isn't working for a lot of Firefox 4 users) :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpIPyc4y6I0

  4. Thanks for the alternate link Shane. It is working fine for me in FireFox. Sorry if it was giving you trouble.

  5. No problem. I'd like to see him finalize this project with steadier filming and fixed lighting (from inside the enclosure). That would look great and make for a seamless effect.
