Garden Variety Subjects

I could have put this in any number of threads I guess....it's got the XHA1, lens adapter, dolly, edited in VP8.

A quick subject matter that in particular figured out my 'Vertigo' dolly move dilema I had with the XhA1 in "Skully Dollies".

Was nice to use the dolly outdoors for a change after the heavy snows we've had this year in Canada.

Comments always welcome,

James

Hi James.
I'm curious as to how you did the strobing light effect on the animal skull?

Cheers!

Dennis,

In Vegas Pro 8 I used the film look effects. Using only the flicker effect from this plugin you can create flashes/strobes and keyframe them from none to very erratic frequency.

The screenshot shows the plugin...

Thanks James.
I thought it was particularly effective on the skull shot.

Hello Giovanni,

very nice short, but could it be that you used a 35mm adapter? Most of the takes in your short looks like it.

Hello!

Thanks for comments!

Music from one of my favourite movie - "K-PAX", first track from CD - "Grand Central" (main theme).

Cya!

Very nicely put together. Composition is lovely. Music fits the piece well.

The only thing that puzzles me is that 80+ percent of the shots were locked down. And those pans and tilts that were there, were very short. I expected to see allot more long pans and tilts seeing as how you were trying to test out a tripod head.


BTW: Loved the forests of birch trees. Reminded me of my childhood in Ukraine. Any chance this was shot somewhere in the former Soviet union?
