This is a still from a time lapse video of a pour at MC’s backyard bowl on 6-6-09. The crew consisted of Deamland regulars and about 20 onlookers. Even at two frames a minute, I managed to catch the one time someone fell into the bowl, as seen above. I did miss the first 45 minutes of the operation. I as I was driving to Mark’s house house I was thinking “8:00… Well that’s when people will start showing up and milling around, figuring out what the plan is. I won’t be too late.” When I turned the corner on to Mark’s street, the first concrete truck was already blocking half the street. The last trowel was pretty much done around 4:00. The trees make it look like it’s in some lush tropical locale, but it’s just a backyard in Portland. The stills were taken with a laptop and a web cam, so the quality is fuzzy. You’ll notice the iSight camera had a hard time focusing too. The finished bowl is… beautiful! Those guys did amazing work, like a well oiled machine. Everyone knew what to do pretty much without being told. It was amazing to watch.
