St. Michael’s Fair 2014 – View from the Ferris Wheel

As per yearly tradition, my Mom and I took a ride on the Ferris wheel at St. Michael’s fair last night. Only, this year, my trusty GoPro came with us.

Many of us Levittowners are very nostalgic for St. Mike’s fair. For that reason I tried to make the video look like a moving Instagram picture. To do that I applied a 70s filter to the clips and used classic digital fonts for the text.

Unfortunately, it’s hard to keep the GoPro steady while it’s on an extender. I applied a stabilizer in Final Cut Pro X, but it just made the footage look unnatural. So, I decided to go with the shaky, more natural look to go with the nostalgic theme.

Hope you enjoy it!
