Little hv20+Letus Extreme clip

Hi, I made this clip for Parallels Video Contest (Parallels lets you have Windows and Mac on the same computer, and videos/spots had to be based on the slogan 'Why Choose?').
It was shot with HV20 cinemode + Letus Extreme + Nikon 17-35mm f2.8 (17mm on almost every shot) and a bit color graded on Premiere Pro.
Nothing spectacular but... ;)

That was an awesome video or should I say film. Really nice film look. Got any behind the scene shots of your setup/equipment?

Also, did you win the contest?

HV10 - Jiu Jitsu Tournament DVD trailer

Hey Guys,

I don't post here often but I thought I'd share. We shot this tournament a week ago on Sony FX1s. I had my new HV 10 in pocket and roamed the arena to pick up B-roll. We decided to cut the Teaser/Trailer with it. I think it came out pretty good. It's all HV10 edited on FCP. Some of the shots were done with a crappy wide angle lens adaptor.

Fantasy Drama test scenes with Greenscreen

http://www.lulu.com/content/1715034
Lulu multimedia download - FREE of charge.
wmv format 1280x720p25 seems to deliver a 5 minute HD drama reasonably close to the original quality at a reasonable download size of 190MB. We get away with hosting at this size by presenting the file as an advert for another product sold on Lulu which is the newly published book "Askar" by Bronwyn Calder. Our number one film project is to shoot this as a low-budget fantasy epic in Jan 2009. These test scenes give the HV20 a greenscreen workout and results are looking promising. What you see here is a draft result with no special compositing processing at all - only a click on the default "bluescreen" preset in NLE "Ulead MediaStudio 8 Pro". Still todo applying the advanced "Nick's Filters" technique for this NLE. Some green fringing on character edges if you look hard enough. In our test audiences, viewers in the know about greenscreen can spot the effect but in talking to non-experts afterwards they had no idea.
I suggest that this shows that no-budget greenscreen drama is very do-able with the HV20 combined with professional greenscreen backdrops. Our backdrop cost the equivalent of only US$100 from a photographic supplier thanks to his contact with a chinese factory. These results are a big big improvement over our earlier productions using a Canon Optura with green and blue bedsheets.
My opinion now about getting the "film look" for indie movies. It works well for us to do greenscreen then blur the background on compositing. I suggest this is better than the "35 mm adapter" approach. I admit I have never seen one of these adapters "in the flesh" but from on-line info about them they strike me as messy comical mechanical contraptions that must degrade the image with all that extra stuff added to the lens system. I challenge those into such things to do some EIA1956 line resolution tests with and without their adapter.
Another opinion. With the real thing professional greenscreen backdrop buyable for only US$100 there is now no good reason for diy constructions.

Looks great. If anything, the audio and acting could have been a bit better. But the overall look and framing, very nice :)
