A Different Perspective

A unique perspective on the Civic Centre Square in Wellington, NZ, this experimental film shows how a trials unicyclist can view the world around him. The film presents two views: the wide shot of the space as someone would normally see it, and the space as a unicyclist sees it. To accomplish the second I strapped a small Canon Powershot underneath the seat of my unicycle and filmed as I rode around. This film was a project for DMDN 211: Cinematics in Victoria University of Wellington.


This was a solo project for a class. Conceptualization, storyboarding, filming, editing, special effects, and compositing were all done by me. I also am riding the unicycle in the video.
