As you may be aware I have been wanting to include YOU in my art.
Well here is another attempt only this time you can join me on my morning ride.
You are SEEING my vision as I pedal along inside Glennon Park and if you keep your eyes open….
you will see…..

Here is the first attempt by artist R J Burgess at MOVING image making of Fine Art Proportions.
With just a hand-held camera and riding his pushbike here is his Cinematic Debut.
Critics may call it ground-breaking, an epic, a masterpiece or they might call it……..
You can decide for yourself……….I need to get back to MAKING ART!

I love the soundtrack! But I worry about the distraction of the camera for the rider. Your shadow showed you holding it while pedaling. Shouldn’t it be strapped to your helmet for safety’s sake?
Thanks for your comments Tom. The soundtrack was chosen after much searching….so pleased you like it. I wanted to include the shadow to reveal (briefly) how I was doing the filming. Also I like the way it dances across the screen then disappears.
Have no fear with my safety while shooting. Any traffic means no shoot. Also I like the freedom of some hand-held control while shooting…..it is unpredictable…..raw and allowing for the unexpected…..qualities I love in my art.
So enjoyed riding with you Robert – very cinema verite – soundtrack is brilliant – 1930s / 40s silent movie – fab concept – explore more – pedal more (good for thighs)…
Thanks so much John……particularly for introducing me to the genre of cinema verite or truthful cinema and direct cinema……will explore more. Much time was spent searching for a suitable sountrack. Who knows where this will go…….but it is all related to the way we see the world.
I enjoyed the way that your shadow kept trying to make you go a different way!
Thanks Terry……so pleased you picked up on that……ambiguity!
