Some XLH1 Sundance Film Festival random clips to download

Here are some random clips from Sundance Film Festival filmed with the
XLH1. The H1 was adjusted away from its normal flat look. The H1 image can
be pushed much farther out then even this with it's menu controls in all directions if desired...

XLH1 Settings for these shots were:

-4 master ped
+2 color sat
Cine-Gamma 2
Gain -3db

All this was recorded to HDV tape. Transfered via SDI to Kona card into
DVCproHD 1080i. Reversed telecine to 23.98. "" No Re-compression ""
The h.264 version has excellent quality, yet the footage is hit with another pass of compression. First HDV, second DVCproHD, third .h264...... These clips will only be up be for 48hrs...

BTW, these are Raw DVCproHD files....

I guarantee there will be many, many indie hd movies shot with the H1.

Funny thing with Sundance: Their booklet that describes all the films notes the format of projection for the festival. I saw more HDCAM than film entries. Shoot, Carlos' film was shot Super16 and blown up to 35, yet the booklet says it's 35mm. The interesting thing is that you can tell from the frame grabs that many of them were SD DV. It would seem that all digital entries have to go to HDCAM for projection. There were also a lot of entries that were obviously shot on film but projected HD.

Film is slowly going out of style for festival projection, it would seem. Not much reason to worry about how well your HD would transfer to film.

? Link ?

I had trouble with the final link - seems like I downloaded a file that has no extension or filesize: "mrbarlowwelton".

It's late - perhaps I've made a goof here? Please advise - I'm very excited to see your work as always.

Thanks,
Shawn

Ooops - sorry. Tried the link a few more times and it got me into iDisk. Must have been a server burp or something.

Looking forward to the clips... Thanks again.

Barlow, the footage looks great. I actually posted additonal praises in the "Thinking about H1 instead of HVX now" thread, as your footage was just what I needed to see this morning to start me out with a great day, specifically the "MiscSundance2.mov."

Could you (or anyone else) please point out why you elected to put the HDV footage through the above process? Would it have looked just as good if you just imported the original HDV you shot straight into FCP to keep the workflow streamlined?

Thank you.

Sorry to be a thorn... I'm having trouble playing these back. I can drop them in my Edius SP timeline (I'm WinXP), and I'm only getting audio. Sooo, I guess I don't have the necessary video codec. I'm trying to download the .264 versions now, but not sure if I have that codec either.

I'm going to download the latest free quicktime player for Windows (thought I already had). Will that get me everything I need to view these? Otherwise, I can upgrade to Quicktime pro for $30 - no problem if it gets me to where I need to be. I'm assuming with Quicktime pro I'll get the .264 codec at a minimum(?).

BTW - I've opened the non-264 clips in Canopus procoder, and it says the video frame size is 640x360, frame rate 23.98 with the video codec as: DVCPRO HD 1080i60.

It's rare that I run into playback difficulties on this machine - it pretty much views/exports & transcodes into every format. Any clarification to get me on board with you guys is greatly appreciated.

Barlow,
The only digital format Sundance officially projects is HDCAM. Everyone accepted must turn in a 35mm film reel or HDCAM master only.

I have another "Day in the Life" segment airing 9pm EST this evening on the Sundance channel as part of "Festival Dailies". It's shot SD 24F with the H1. It follows a pair of filmmakers who made a very interesting documentary called "The Trials of Darryl Hunt".

Tune in or Tivo if you can.

Elton, after seeing your footage damn, you've really got me thinking of double dipping with Pana and Canon! =)

It seems the H1 is truly a mini cine-alta.

Barlow, if you have any footage that you would like some color timing or effects done, i'd love the chance to give it a shot. i mostly use after effects and i have most of the plugins that are available for the program.
