Intermezzo – Get Inspiration from Creativity

Intermezzo - Get Inspiration from Creativity

Inspiration and creativity are must-haves for me. Irregularly I make drawings, collages or mixed media in some kind of theme.

It helps me keep my creative skills flowing.

An intermezzo is a short piece of music written to be played on its own or as part of a longer piece. For me, it’s a welcome break in my daily activities.

In the video are a couple of examples.

  1. I like your movie. At least the pictures I see (the music is also okay). What I don’t like, is that your pictures are timed too close next to each other. You don’t give me enough time to study your beautiful pictures. The rhythm, or time sequence, of your pictures, is too speedy for me.

    I know timing is very difficult in a stop-motion movie. However, your pictures are often so rich in interesting details, that I don’t know exactly where to focus my eyes. This means that even more gets lost because the span of my attention gets the wrong instructions.

    What might, perhaps, help you is to watch your pictures closely, count the number of details (yes, there can be many details in a picture), and take at least 3 seconds for each detail to be noticed. I have no idea this will work, but perhaps you do get a more logical rhythm in your sequences.

    • Ah, I see what you mean, Mia, and I can imagine your remark. One problem with YouTube (where the video is on), is that you can’t edit or exchange the video later on. But I do have 2 solutions for you.

      1. Go to settings, the little wheel on the bottom-right of the video (if you don’t see it, you have to mouse over the video). Here you can alter the speed, either making the video quicker or slower.

      2. In Chrome you can add an extension to quickly alter the speed of any video, whether it’s on YouTube or another platform. The extension is Video Speed Controller. I love it especially because you can quickly change the speed with just a key on your keyboard.

      Thanks for your remark, Mia, and I hope this helps.
