I am still in shock from last night. What a game! It’s been 108 years since the Chicago Cubs last won the World Series and they ended the curse in style during one of the most memorable games ever. While I personally had no stake for either side as I am unfortunately a Yankees fan, I could not help but feel the excitement when Kris Bryant partially slipped on the slow chopper to third and then gunned a heater to first for the final out of the game. I can’t remember a game where there was so much at stake aside from simply winning a championship. Suffice to say, I was fairly animated (as were most of the fans at the bar I was at last night) throughout the game and obviously at the conclusion.
Before the game, I had been working on a sketch using a grid system to capture video with a couple other videos downloaded from YouTube playing in the background. However, I could not help myself but change the video to the final out by Bryant as described above. The video captures the person at the screen (me for this example) as I recreate the excitement I felt during the final out of the game last night. The transparency allows you to see both the Cubs video and video capture simultaneously. I decreased the videoScale to 4 to make the pixels even smaller, but p5 ends up running a little slower. I assume this is normal.
This was a fun little project and I have absolutely learned quite a bit about video capturing and how to possibly implement it into my final project.
Here is a screenshot of exactly what I looked like during the final out:
And here is the code:
