Funeral...

My wife's 98-year-old grandmother died last week, and the funeral was Saturday. Because my father-in-law is ill, I took my A-1 so he could see his mother's ceremony by video.

No, this wasn't any cinematic triumph by any means -- I had just gotten the camera back from servicing by Canon and they default all the settings and I was so rushed I didn't set it up right, it's noisy, dark, blah blah blah.

BUT -- my two daughters learned their great-grandma's favorite song the night before the funeral and sang it, and I like watching them so much, I figured I might treat you guys to it, too:

(Pardon the forgotten lyrics of one of my girls, they had never heard of this song...!)

After the funeral, the guy from the mortuary asked me for my card and if I was available for other funerals. No, I don't do funerals for anyone other than a relative, but it made me think there must be a business in there for someone.

There was a mic, a PA system there, and I used a radio mic attachment to tap into their sound unit, via the headphones out, so sound came in pretty well.

woxy.com presents Jukebox The Ghost

Just got a second video up that can be viewed here:

http://www.vimeo.com/607291/

Was shot in the lounge of woxy.com on January 10th. It's a bit more straightforward than the first SCL video. Will eventually get the 720p HD and iPod versions on softcitylights.com

As always, would appreciate any feedback.

Working on these little projects is really getting me familiar with XH-A1 and I'm loving it more and more everyday.

Cheers!
Kevin

Wedding Highlights Clip

I am very VERY new to this but this was a wedding that we photographed a few days ago. We could not get on the stage at all, not allowed so had to make the best of what we had, and our main job was the photography, they at the last minute wanted some video.

www.kyserphoto.com/Highlights.mov

always open for ideas to make it better.

You surfed here in RI? Wow I didn`t know it was possible ;) How are you liking your A1? Not many locals use it or have used one.

yeah RI is actually my true home, and a great place to surf if you know where and when to look. I'm just in Boston for school. still on break!

i love the A1, it's really a fantastic camera and i'm learning more and more with it everyday.

by locals, who are you referring to? local film makers?

Local anyone with cameras haha. I`m in Warwick, and finding not many people around here know about HDV, its all either lumped with HD and 'thats too expensive' or everyone is just shooting SD. At any rate, I'd gladly film your next surfing venture for some good old practice ;)

Clean little waves, looked like a fun day. Minus the wet suit. You won't catch me out in that cold water.

New trailer for a short on the A1

This is for my second short film Five Minutes Flat. Its only half filmed right now, so the fighting will be redone to look alot better. It was filmed using VIVIDRGB with i think the black increased.

Hi!

Cool action!
Sadly metacafe provides just a pretty bad picture quality - would you mind uploading it to vimeo.com? They are free and also support HD-vids.

With best regards,

Oliver
