Same specs as the last piece....mixture of XLH1/XHA1/Letus

No color correction done yet....and sound will be mixed, narration re-recorded, etc.

Hi Steven,

Spectacular shots as always. Were the 'in car' shots handheld? or did you use the Merlin?

Been thinking about trying out my Merlin in the car, but haven't gotten around to it yet... was curious about the results...

music accompanying glidecam footage?

Very nice, Nathan. Did you find the Glidecam easy to use? And may I ask where you got the music for this piece?

Thanks.

My first ever music video

Hey guys, I've been on these boards for a while just reading and asking questions. Two years later lol, I finally got the guts and shot something with my Canon XH-A1 camera and M2 adapter. This is my first music video and also the first thing I ever directed.
Total budget was around 150 dollars.

Congrats Taj!

Hi Taj,

I sent a message elsewhere but congrats! What did your lighting setups consist of? Also thanks for putting up some stills.

Wow, this is really good, especially for your first time directing. You must have been doing something within those two years. lol.

But one question: What does the video have to do with Nickelodeon and All That? lol. Just out of curiosity.

*Edit* Nevermind. I'm a retard. I looked her up. Whoopsy. XD

Wow, shes hot... nice video... specially for a first timer... would have been nicer if there was a little more camera movement.. and also i didnt like the shots with her against the black it would have been nicer if it was like maybe wider shots at a different location or something to add a little variety. Like maybe some shots of her remembering the beach scenes, walking on sand, some nice scenic shots, or even just different rooms in the house with a few more extreme close ups aswell hehe :)

footage from my recently owned A1!!!!

Hi,

I've been looking at this forum for a long time while I was doing my research about the A1. Finally, I bought it last weekend and I'm absolutely loving it now!!

I haven't had much time to take it out and do some proper filming (mainly because of the crappy weather here in the UK) but I went to the botanical gardens yesterday and filmed for the first time. I've put some music over the footage, hope you like it!!

cheers!!

Nice Job!

Yeah really nice job! The colors look so vibrant. Did you do any color correction in post? What settings did you use??

thanks Ryan,

I used the famous 'vividRGB' with a few minor tweaks. I am completely overwhelmed by the possibilities of this camera. I didn't correct the colour but I made it a bit less bright and gave it more contrast for the flowers to stand out a bit more.
I was in the yorkshire moors today with that special sunset light that makes everything 'yellowish' and nice. I was astounded, the footage is so full of colour and mood, I'll try to post it this weekend.

Also, I've had to change my NLE recently to Vegas trial as AVID Xpress didn't seem to recognize 25f, any suggestion about this?

cheers
