GL2 footage...

I will be shooting my first professional gig (Aka, something I am doing for somone else, not just for my company), and I will be possibly be using my GL2 for it (if it comes in the mail in time)....Would anyone be so kind to post links to some footage they have shot with their GL2, that they are either very happy with, disappointed with, or somewhere inbetween, I'd like to get a full range of expectations to have. Also, would anyone want to show off some GL2 footage that they think is particularly filmesque?

Thanks in advance.

I did episode 07 (Orlando, USA) for the Lady X Films series on a GL2, with a Tiffen Soft FX 2 lens filter.

Please note that it was a zero budget production, and I only used available light. If I was able to make this look pretty good like that, imagine what you can do with this cam if you light it well, use reflectors, spend some time...

intro

I just went to the page and it is loading but it is taking a long...long time. I can say that the intro was impressive. How about a discussion on what you did? I guess it would most properly belong in another forum but since the thread is here...I'm interested in what techniques you used (and software) for the intro graphics...how you did the gun and the blue "bullets" and other effects. I think it has stopped loading entirely...i'll download it.

The intro and credits are all consistent throughout the entire series of films - the filmmaker for each individual episode doesn't actually make the intro... it's provided by the executive producers, who just happen to all be members here - Ken Tanaka, Rob Lohman, Paul Sedillo and John Locke. The original desiger for the sequence was Roger Yamauchi.

If you get it to download, check out the other films... you'll see what I mean.

Documentary Footage

I am currently making a zero budget documentary on the rising popularity of Wiffleball. I have been using a GL2 throughout the whole thing and have some clips on my website.

http://www.whiffmovie.com/

I have a Polarized filter usually on at all times.

Let me know what you think

Imran,

I'd like to see a tripod used at least some of the time...The NYPD Blue thing seems a bit too much here...

It was my first attempt at trying a completely no-tripod shoot. It was something I wanted to try, and, well, I kinda liked it. I've always enjoyed moving frames, and I'm one of thoese people who'll never forgive NYPD Blue for making it such a formulaic thing. I get really bored by creative projects that are nothing but tripod.

But there are a couple of spots in my project where there is a touch too much motion, I'll definitely agree. There are a lot of things I would do very differently in this project, but then, who doesn't say that about their projects? ;)

Yeah, there are a lot of shots in your flick that never could or should be done with a tripod. Just sayin maybe the whole thing doesnt have to be without one. Attempting constructive feedback. Looks like a blast to make. And it's cool. You'll notice I'm not posting anything so what does that tell ya...

Yes, my next thing will definitely not be ALL handheld. Also won't try the 'available light only' idea again either. Don't know how the Dogme guys can do it...

Bud,

I use Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects for compositing works like this intro (I'm an new media designer). These two programs are a great combination.

I threw togetehera quickie from a company picnic. Obviously a lot is lost on the low-res stream, but you get the idea:
