1/48 shutter

Voiceover -- me... tried to sound like Casey Casum...didn't work...but you get the gist
Music -- by me
Edited in Vegas

Nice work.

I like the voice over.

I would love to see it full size.

Best,

Tom Chaney

i like it

but i got one small tip

to make the slow motion more fluent, you should shoot it at 60fps then slow it 40% to 24fps

i think it looks pretty good when done like that

I loved the shot driving under the overpass, very cinematic.

Just curious... how can I shoot 60fps on my HV20 (which is what Ian-T is using to shoot his Open Road trailer)???

Thanks guys for the comments...this cam is crazy kool.

@ David -- You are absolutely correct...and that is how I normally do it for slow motion...but I put this together after already having shot a lot of these scenes. I never intended on using them in this way...but...next time better planning on my part.

@Zack -- What David is talking about really is shooting first in 60i...then once you are in your NLE (Vegas for me) slow that footage down on your timeline to 40% and then render out to a high quality intermediate file as 60p (which Vegas does so well). Once you finished rendering that clip...just bring it back into your 24p projects timeline and move on from there with you other edits.

Usually this takes a lot of planning. You would have to know that what you are shooting is intended for slow motion....so that means (typically) shooting with a higher shutter speed. I use 1/100 shutter @ 60i (1/120 would be best....but the HV20 does not have that). Often times people think you have to use 1/500 or higher but that just makes you video stuttery..(even in slow motion).

hey ian, that looked great. shame its going to be in theaters nowhere...thats like 8 hours from where i live. maybe you could make a little short out of it with some acting. i thought the voiceover sounded good. didn't you say you used to do radio? def. sounds like you have some experience.
