Daybreak

More sunrise shots using a variation of VIVIDRGB. The colors are really cranked to an almost fantastical level in some of these shots. I wanted them exaggerated and otherwordly to convey the magic of the rising sun.

Used a graduated ND.6 filter on nearly all the shots.

No color correction, just a small levels adjustment for consistency:

Right click and save as...
(this is a 1280x720 file so it should play well on macs)

I've seen 4 of your videos now, and every one of them are like poems.
I think my favorite so far is "Snow" in B/W.
Everything fit together, the music, the pictures and the natural sound.
Thank you for sharing Steven, each time I watch your work, I learn something, and for that I'm grateful.

Beautiful footage. Like some others posted here, it looks wider than 16:9. Is it a different aspect ratio than the 16:9 native to the A1?

Thanks Doug. The only thing in post was the 2.35 matte and a slight levels adjustment to even the blacks. The rest was in camera using a Graduated ND filter as mentioned above.

Steven, nice stuff as always. I don't know if it's this box or not, but with the opening titles, there's a very noticeable luminance difference in the scope matte area. I just wondered what was up with that.

Yeah Bill, I'm aware of that title thing. I'm using an older version of Cineform on another computer and that was a glitch which I believe has since been fixed.

Thanks for the comments.

Steven:

Unless its trade secret, what are your composers using anyway to do your sound tracks ? The Yellowstone one was very cinematic, for instance, and just wondered what program they might be using to get there...

Steven, you know dogs aren't supposed to be smarter than us. How is it that we're the ones walking around with their poop in small bags?

Nice work...as always.
