New and Old Footage

This is kinda my reel. Not in the traditional manner but whatever. Lots of shots here. About 5 minutes. Some seen before, most not. Mainly shot on XHA1 but also XLH1. Some with stock lens, some with Letus FE and Letus Extreme. A big mish mosh...best of disjecta.

I will not be posting a full rez version of this because it's just way too big and a pain...sorry.

Enjoy it and hire me:

Quicktime version: http://www.pinelakefilms.com/reel.html

Thanks to Phil Bloom for the inspiration to use the Village soundtrack (this is a placeholder until an original soundtrack is created).

Holy Moly

Steven, that is very very impressive.
Really influential in terms of framing and movement as well.


I'm working on something like that, that I hope to be the urban equivalent.

Steven,

As usual, it's always a pleasure and inspiration to see your work. Thank you for sharing.

By the way some footage is wider than it is taller. Do you use a mask in post? The aspect ratio of the visible parts (if you get what I mean) is not 16:9. How and why do you do this?

Shiv.

Stunning. It was like pawing through a chest of little treasures, each one unique yet equally appealing. I watched it twice to make sure I didn't miss any of the little 'pieces.'

Gorgeous. The near dusk and dawn shots are stunning as are the atmosphere ones, mist, fog. As always, great framing.

Somebody hire him.

I've said it before: I really admire your work. You seem to have some kind of magic eye for what works and what don't work. The music you select also gives that extra touch.

I thought I heard that music before, is it from any of your earlier films or is it from a movie i've seen?


Regards,

/Bo

Bo, the music is from the Village...as I said, just a placeholder until I can get an original soundtrack set.

Hi

Actually, when I looked at your file, I thought the music either came from The Village, or from another of your films! But thanks for the info anyway!


Regards,

Really magical. The third shot of the dog walker is breathtaking.

Really impressive. I hope you get a lot of success from your talent.
