Won Canon/Vimeo contest using Cineform products

Hey guys,

First, this thread is not fishing for a congrats...trust me...lol...

but, since this is a Cineform SHOWCASE forum, where it is predominantly dominated by software issues/problems..

just thought i'd share that I won the chapter 6 section of the "beyond the still" contest, using Premiere cs4/Prospect HD and also Firstlight for all the color correction.

I'm just proud of the Cineform products as I know most of my competition was using Final Cut and probably all of them were using Magic Bullet...

In addition, under the really tight production deadline, the software really didn't give me any problems... and Firstlight was quite awesome in helping me to establish two separate identities... as I used some of the presets to start as a base and id modified from there.. im wondering if there are new presets that we can purchase??

Anyway, for anyone thinking about these products, just know that i've used them pretty successfully under pretty demanding circumstances.

thanks guys, really appreciate it.

Lol.. yup thought I'd have to just post my win.. because earlier this year... i was hittin up this forum with my questions.. issues with my cineform products.. and now that i've figuered it out.. its satisfying to win against people who used magic bullet/final cut.. just because those are much more used products (imo) with the 5D..

Well, well, well done, Marc!

Story was well told, shots were paced to serve plot (not the cinematographer's self-reference).

Well deserved award.

It means drawing attention to the cinematography over the story with unnecessary and/or unmotivated production techniques that take the viewer out of the story to somehow attempt to focus the viewer on the talent behind the camera instead of the story in front of it.

You're completely forgiven for not understanding my reference...now forget the meaning and go on with your career...

Industry Standard? Well...i usually hear "creative ma....." Um...it rhymes with "raster nation".

"Self reference" is something I can slip into a conversation with my mother...
