Reno, Nevada – Big Ben Parliament Creations (BBP Creations) announces a new trailer for their upcoming October release of Froud Meditations Pathways to Faery for iOS. The teaser trailer was created by shooting video on the iPhone 4S and edited it on the iPad 2. The app, created by Brian and Wendy Froud, two of the most respected artists working in the genre of faerie today, features multi-sensory meditations that take listeners on guided journeys to the otherworld and into the realms of Trolls, Faeries, Elves and Wise Ones.
BBP Creations placed Art Director Holly Hartzell-Reviglio in charge of the creation of the video. The goal was to use as many of Apple’s products as possible to create the teaser trailer for the new app debuting in October. “It was a challenge to create the video this way, but I knew it would be a spectacular launch for their app if we could pull it off. We really wanted to have the vignette look to the footage, and by choosing the additional hardware for the iPhone we were able to make that happen,” stated Holly Hartzell-Reviglio.
Hartzell-Reviglio used the OWLE Bubo, a MACRO 37MM Wide Angle Converter lens, EnCinema SLR Lens, a Nikon converter, a Sigma 50mm 1:2.8 DG MACRO SLR lens, an iPhone 4S, an iPad camera connection kit, an iPad 2 and iMovie. “We ran a great deal of tests and even had to switch our Nikon lens for a more powerful Sigma lens at the beginning of the shoot in the UK. In the end we wound up with amazing footage using an iPhone 4S, and then we transferred it to our iPad 2 and used iMovie for editing purposes,” commented Hartzell-Reviglio.
Yesterday,a blog post of their process was released on the BBP Creations website, featuring an in-depth look at the set-up and shooting of a video on an iPhone and its subsequent editing on an iPad. A teaser trailer to the app can now be seen via YouTube and BBP Creation’s and World of Froud’s Facebook pages. Froud Meditations Pathways to Faery will be released on iTunes in October and will be available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod.
