By the way Steven,

Those walking the dog shots...

That must have been the first video of yours that I saw. If I remember correctly, you'd just bought the A1 and took some shots on your way to work.

I loved that video and could never find it afterwards. On your way to work, huh? Thats just insult to injury. I plan for my shoots and even then they just about turn out the way I think they would.

Do you still have that edit and if so could you post it once again please?

There isn't one single shot in that reel that could be criticized or critiqued. Every single one has perfect color, perfect subject, perfect framing and lighting... absolutely amazing. Doesn't matter what camera, settings or lenses were used, each frame looks like a million bucks.... awesome work.

Steven,

Really nice collection of shots set to a beautiful piece of music. My favorite part looked like a dolly shot starting in the forest and moving to the snow covered mountain. It had so much depth I felt like I was there. One suggestion, the disolve transition from the sun closeup to the geese swimming across the lake bothered me. The sun just dominated too much of the transition IMO. Might want to try a cut or something else.

Also, I really liked the build up shots of the snow flurries and would have liked for them to lead into a "big" snow scene at the end of the sequence. Anyway, great work and look forward to seeing more.

Thanks Mark. The "snow" scene you mentioned is actually a cottonwood tree shedding its cotton....it was fleeting (so what I shot was it) and I didn't want to mix it with actual snow shots.

Ah, it fooled me. I guess I didn't look close enough.

Steven,

Thanks for the link. The video I remember seeing had various shots of the park and stuff. Essentially the later part of the video you gave me the link for. I understand if you don't have that video stored on your server anymore. Every video I've seen of yours is just brings about a a "wow".

I'm just glad you and of course everyone else share their work!

Thanks.

Shiv.

Steven have you ever considered making a tutorial dvd? Heck how about a tutorial HD-DVD and/or Blu-Ray? These shots are fantastic.

I seriously think you just post stuff here for an ego boost. =P

I'm just messing with ya. It is really amazing. You definitely know how to use that camera. The shots are beautiful, and honestly, I think you should keep the music. It goes perfectly with the movie. And if you're not selling the reel and it's just a demo, then you don't really need to make original music.

Be sure to post more stuff soon so you can get another ego boost. =)

Great work mate. Very inspiring shots and thanks for sharing I have actually learnt a quiet few things from your footage.

Are those ducks CGI at the beginning, they just keep coming like they are on a conveyer belt :P just kidding

I hope you will get to shoot some narrative films, would love to see some footage.

colour correction?

Hi Steven

I'll echo all the comments here - nicely done! You may have this elsewhere but how about an inventory of your EFP kit, post-prod work flow and what if any colour correction you may have done for this reel - or are those files untreated in the timeline? If they are - amazing.

thanks

GS

That footage is really inspiring Steven, WOW, I had to watch it three or four times to fully appreciate it. Watching some of the shots it felt like I was there. Great work!
