Bathtub IV: Tilt-Shift Video on Vimeo

The tilt-shifted world of faux miniaturization has artists making video, too, and I'm happy to have discovered the work of Sydney-based artist Keith Loutit. This little film, Bathtub IV, is posted in HD over at Vimeo, with two others by Loutit, including a great Mardi Gras parade.

You just have to wonder: how does he do that?! The music is such a perfect fit for this movie. (Thanks to Jess at How About Orange, for sending me there.)

Here is what Loutit says about Bathtub IV:

This is a personal project that would not have been possible without the support of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Thanks to the entire team for their generous access during training exercises and patrols this Summer. Since the Service began in 1973, it has carried out more than 21,000 missions ranging from urgent patient transfers to dangerous search and rescue missions.

The Service depends entirely on the generous support of sponsors and the community to stay flying. Donations can be made at the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service website.

The time-lapse flight sequences in this film would not be possible without the skill and patience of Chief Pilot Peter Yates. Thanks also to Trevor Cracknell (for getting wet!) and Family.
