2 shorts from Italy

We went over to Italy for 3 days last month. At the airport i realized i'd forgotten to bring my driving license, so we had to take the train instead.

Here's a couple of little things i shot with the A1 on the "true colour" setting.

Most of it's handheld and i haven't had time to add a smoothcam filter yet.

Corporate Job

Was hired by a non-profit in the San Francisco Bay Area to do a 9-minute film and a few shorter pieces on people they are honoring at a big event later this week.

All shot with A-1, here is the job:

Jeff,

This looks great. I'm very inspired. Did you use any adapters on the A1? Also what NLE are you using?

Thanks,

Mike Watkins

Good looking footage. I have a newbie question. Would anyone mind explaining a smoothcam filter?

Dragons

Hi

Once every year dragons are placed around the city of Sundsvall, Sweden. The dragons are painted by artists and sponsored by local companies. This film is from the opening event where all dragons are gathered in a park before they are placed all around the city. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks, Mike. I use Final Cut Pro, and no adapters, though I think I'm going to get a Letus shortly to play with, after seeing Steve Dempsey's stuff.

The dreaded mixed lighting night event.

This is a job I did for a Valentines Ball in Whangarei, New Zealand.
I find the XHA1 to be a bit naughty with noise in low light, and hate using the on camera light when covering events due to it's intrusiveness, but was happy with how this came out.

Smoothcam is a filter that comes as an affect in Final Cut Pro. It was one of several features to come from the another Apple App Shake. It smoothes out bumpy handheld footage to excellent effect, by zooming in on the image and stabilizing the picture.

Thanks Philip,
I find that the panalook preset is good, but it makes the frame much darker than I would like; definitely best for outdoor shooting, in my opinion.

The light is a no-brand 75watt. Came with a 12 volt battery, charger, carry bag and barn doors for $210 (New Zealand).
It's a pain in that it is daylight kelvin, so when you're under lights, it gives a blue cast - I must figure out how to get the filter off.

Hi

I used PANALOOK2 but also did some CC in post, mostly pulling down brightness to make black blacker.
