XL1 still holds up

I found a short film I shot with a XL1 back in 2000, sitting on a shelf. I watch the short the other day and was surprized how the image held up. I remember having some filters, a tripod and being very hungover. Oh, the kicker was I cut it on Cinestream, does anyone remember that program? I posted the film titled 'a memory' you will need quicktime 7 to view it.

Cheers

And how's that any different from every other shoot you've ever done?

Anyway, great post, thanks.

Jenny made dinner for us and the only thing missing was you. Scott, Baby Mia and Thunder all said hello.

Chris

I missed the reunion, I got a couple drunk dials at 2 in the morning from the crew. I have a feeling we all might find ourselves at the Peppermill in the near future.

Ahh... what better way to show the love than the ubiquitous drunk dial.

If I had been with them that night, we could have found the Cortez without rousing you.

Looking forward to near-future excursions...

(for Chris S., the XL1 video on David's blog loads fine for me in FireFox).

Hi CH..............

Starting to feel like we're married - I just KNEW you were going to say that!

But, NAH, it's a Quicktime thing I guess. Don't know how many versions of it download a week but seems like a lot, all of 'em run once and then never again, no matter what inducements I try.

Seems QT doesn't like WXPSP2, or maybe it's just me.

Slightly (er, slightly!) off topic: was wandering around the gallery having been given the keys the other day - had always had a mental image of you (as one does) as a sort of Grissom from CSI, discovered a Suggs clone from Madness.

Strange transformation.

Still in shock.

Have a good one.

Ha! Lorinda thinks it's someone else, but that's probably just the booze talkin'.

How did we get so far off topic? Oh yeah -- it was my fault.

I switch from flash to H264 compression, forgetting the 90% of the PC users. The below is quicktime 7 which will enable you to watch the videos on the blog.

Sorry about I'm living in my mac bubble.

An interesting short, and effective. But probably more effective reaching an older (vs. younger) audience that can relate to what the protagonist feels.

What is the music? Proof that sound is very important.

Yea, the foley is kind of crappy, but the shoot itself is great.

Well! I scrolled down to compliment this gentleman on his post and clip, and what do I find? I have to defend myself…on two counts! (Who you callin’ a boozer, there, CH? ;)

On the other count, I give exhibit A.

Back to the original topic, from one who still uses an XL1(s) I want to thank you, David, for making me feel better about it!

Now where did I put that beer…

;)

I remember Cinestream. Great software, ahead of it's time in many ways.

It was bought and sold a few times before it was intentionally murdered by Autodesk. That's the way it's done isn't it? Can't make a product as good as their's, then buy them out and kill their's, that then makes you the best, right?

I also remember at the time, that there was some reference that Cinestream originated with a program called Edius. I wonder if there is any connection to Grass Valley's Edius by any chance?

Hmmm ....

Hey Tim

I throw this one out to Chris Bourne as well. Do your remember Cleaner 5, it was a fantastic compression software, I think even better then the currant Apple Compressor. The BBP gang was going through some old footage when we came across DVExpo 1999 with a very young Adam Brooks talking about Cleaner 5 and Media100. I also found a vey young handsome Hurd with an XL1s in his hand from an expo from 2002.


Cheers
