This is my quick video for the day, shot whilst walking from Rotterdam Centraal station to Delftsepoort (an office building). The subject is fairly mundane, but there are a few layers of square video on top of each other, and another clapping soundtrack made quickly.
I actually made two versions of this video, one with a regular offset:
And one that uses a 2-frame offset per layer to recreate a ‘wavy’ special effect from the 70s. I remember seeing this sort of effect in old music videos as a kid, back when I was glued to music television:

But then again, the flooring, which seems to be particular to Dutch train stations, also looks more dramatic than usual:
As does the utterly mundane pavement found on all streets near here:
