Marina Clip

Took a few clips this weekend at the local marina with my XL2. I color corrected it a bit and added some glow. Still learning to use it and compose shots.

http://home.comcast.net/~chalbers/marina.wmvx

Download it and then rename it to marina.wmv to play.

Hope you like it

Nice footage, Frank. Was that one kite really doing that, zipping around the screen?

Very nice, Frank. Appreciate that you noted what post-production was done...would you mind also sharing your camera settings to give folks a bit more frame of reference about various aspects of the clip?

I actually used my to hands to block the view so I could decide the framing and composition of my shots. I noticed to get much better results by setting the camera really low so I could nicely pick up the grass and flowers blowing in the wind.

This is how I shot it. The camera was totally in it's default settings. I noticed this to give me the broadest dynamic range if I don't do any curving or color correcion settings IN camera. It gives me much more to play with in post.

I filmed in 30p, 1/60 th shutter and 16:9 using a locked 0db gain. I focused manually and set the apperture manually depending on the overexposure visible on the zebra 95%. My ND filter was set to 1/32

In Post I first leveled the highest values to as high as I could. Then I color curved to get more of a filmic look. Added som more saturation and finally did a slight glow effect.

That's it !

I must say ... it lookes SOO MUCH better on DVD ! The compression on the .wmv file doesn't help eighter ! :-)
