First video- complete noob. Nature and such.

So I just cracked open my XH-A1 a few days ago and instead of researching or reading the manual... I said, "I'm going to the park." So I filmed some stuff...

I warn you I know nothing. My Adobe Premiere CS3 failed to open so I am ashamed to say that I edited this in... :( ... Windows Movie Maker. Messed around with some stuff, I don't know what I should be exporting in so it's pretty bad quality.

Also- I had/have no steadicam and the 200$ tripod I just bought happened to be missing a wingnut so it's 95% filmed handheld. Let me know what's up and any tips/tricks are much appreicated.

London Mayor Election 08

I'd appreciate any constructive criticism on even the tiniest aspect of the video (even if you're new to the XH-A1 or editing, you've watched plenty of TV, so please fire away with any comments or thoughts).

It's just an extract from a film I shot at an event for the London Mayor election campaign.

I already posted this question in the web/DVD delivery forum, but I'd love to know how to get the whole of the QT player/progress bar at the bottom displaying in full.

An amazing Image from a day of Recreational A1 Shooting!

Well I finally caught a break today from working all day long for six weeks straight and I happend to catch some really nice footage today with my new A1.

As I was leaving my job site today I noticed this little guy near the Water Fountain and he was soon joined by his two other siblings. I started shooting with my HV20 and then called my Wife to bring my A1 and Tripod. Thanks to my Wife and A1...The footage is spectacular!

I love filming Wildlife, especially birds and these guys when full grown are difficult to get close too, but these little ones hung out all day and didn't even flinch as I maneuvered my camera equipment around them getting all sorts of shots.

It was a great day!

I wanted to see if I could shoot and edit a short feature in less than 4 hours - this is the result.(That is from leaving my front door to starting the upload to Vimeo) All shot in my home town,Peel
I also shot all the footage from the same position,only panning,zooming and adjusting the height.

making of video on dailymotion

Hi!

I posted a video on dailymotion that some may enjoy. It's a clip of the making of the first music video that I did camerawork on. It is for the song 'Just Go Out with Me', by Justin Winokur, shot with director Jason Carswell.

This was shot on an XHA1, with HV20 as b-cam. This was just cobbled together for the people who worked on it, but it is a fun clip. We built a full-size carnival sideshow and stage in the director's backyard... good times! We are still working on post-production, which has turned into a massive feat, but I will post the finished video soon.

Be merciful in your critique, since I really had no clue how to shoot properly with my brand new XHA1. I learned quickly!

Well it turns out these Beautiful Little Guys are Green Herons...not Blue Herons!

Guess it was the shade that gave their feathers a blue tint.

Fantastic little birds!!!

That was a superb video man... The only thing I really didn't digg was the "Funkin Styles" graphic near the end (middle)... Seemed not up to par with the rest of the video...

Risso dolphins off the Isle of Man

I spent a lot of time last summer helping out on the Isle of Man whale and dolphin survey. The waters around the Isle of Man(middle of the Irish sea between England and Ireland,below Scotland.....have a look on a map!) are extremely rich in marine life and every summer we get huge amounts of dolphins,whales,basking sharks and other creatures.
Last summer I only saw basking sharks(I say 'only'! These things are MASSIVE and very impressive to see) so I was really pleased yesterday when we spotted a large group of risso dolphins.

Here's a bit of shaky footage I shot - http://www.vimeo.com/1284739
