short clip with xha1 for my showreel
 
i've done a short clip for my showreel some weeks ago and i was amazed
about the xha1...never could play with DOF like that before with my pd-170!

Woah. That was freaky, not gonna lie. lol.

You got DOF shots like that without a 35mm adapter? Wow. That was really good. Heh, when I saw "Love My Pet" I was like "hmmm, well this is gonna be another cute clip of a puppy, or a kitty or something." Definitely threw me off guard. lol. But good job man.

That was a little unsettling! Loved the effects and textures you used. Were they just overlays or did you use a bump map? Nice use of color too. Great editing.

Dominik Gehring September 4th, 2007 08:50 AM

@Jerrod

lol- thx...yes it's without 35mm adapter..but i had a shooting last saturday with
a letus35fe, but will make a post about that later...btw first i liked to have her hold a big dead fish...but friends convienced me that this would be 2 much.(still not shure about that...lol)

@Jim

the texures were just overlayed with composite mode...

Jerrod Cordell September 4th, 2007 09:52 AM

I don't know. I liked the rat. It seemed creepier than a dead fish. A dead fish would probably just make me laugh. lol.

Dominik Gehring September 4th, 2007 09:59 AM

maybe...but i think not on the one i had in mind...lol

Trish Kerr September 4th, 2007 02:47 PM

very well done creep factor. I'd say you're ready for Silent Hill.

That was really impressive! May I ask how do you exactly make those shaky transitions and effects? are they done manually, or with a plugin? Thanks in advance.

Doug Davis September 4th, 2007 11:29 PM

Kids always add such a high 'creep' factor... Nice video... Very original... What NLE?

Dominik Gehring September 5th, 2007 02:38 AM

@dough - i use fcp 5.1.4 - thx

@carlos - i made it manually and then worked with speed changes in fcp...dont know if it is a good 2 do that now with the letus adapter and a heavy lens..lol -maybe i have to get a stable rodsupport system first...

It looks very good, I had the feeling that the dof was enhanced during editing using masks and blur? Can you give some more info on the effects you used?

Dominik Gehring September 5th, 2007 04:00 AM

all the blur was done in camera...no special fx, only fcp cc and a lot of editing...

That's cool, when you refer to blur in camera, you just turn the focus ring to get a blurry image? Where there specific settings you used for the camera?

Dominik Gehring September 5th, 2007 08:24 AM

@noa - yes i had the zoom and focus speed on high in the prefs plus i used the panalook preset because it fitted well for my needs in this particular situation...

Dennis Murphy September 5th, 2007 03:38 PM

That was damn beautiful!
Seriously, I love that kind of editing and vibe.
