new HD100 video

Here is one of the latest videos I shot, directed and co-edited on the HD100/FCP, in several cities in Norway. It's in English, so everybody should understand the lyrics...

Freakshow - "I'm Not You"

I will upload the .mov soon, for now only the youtube version is available:

Looks good, how did you grade the color? Did you use a 35mm adapter at all?

i graded the color in FCP Color. But I didn't do that much work in post, some grading and a few rotoscopes in AE. i used the "bleach bypass" scene file, and no 35mm, only the stock lense.

ahhh...its nice to see some non adapter footage done right. i dont listen to this kind of music, but the montage coupled with the music was beautiful. the photography is great (especially those macro shots- very filmic), and i love the color. well done.

how did you shoot for slow mo, and at what settings (i.e. shutter speed). Did you use a mattebox and some ND filters to open the iris for the shallow DOF? OH, and did you use the stock lens because i don't see any of the chromatic aberration inherent in nearly all of the 16x lenses.

Wow! I love the colors. Bleach bypass and reds/dark browns really match. Awesome job. Did you shoot 576/50p and slowed down?

thanks for the props!

Alan: I shot all performance on 30p, and all non-performance on 60p. I'm in PAL-land, so everything was conformed to 25p for editing. The shutter speed depended on what I was shooting, movement and "crispness", or whether I had enough light source for the shot, so it differed from shot to shot.

I used a matte-box with a polarizer and a grad-filter on some shots. I used the stock-lense on all shots with the wide-adaptor.

George: if I had the HD250, I'd probably shoot 720p/60/50, but I shot the 60/50p on HDVSD mode. i think all of the slow-mo shots were on 60p (and not 50p), and conformed it in Cinema Tools

Nima: I like the SDHDV formats a lot for slow motion. Even when uprezzed to 720 they still look great, don't you think? Did you use Tim's bleach bypass look? That's my favorite scene file setting.

How did you shoot the 60P on the HD100? Did you output component and captured on external computer?

Dennis, HDV-SD60P/50P is shot on tape (or DVrack, firestore, etc). Awesome for slow motion or news journalism type stuff.

So he shot the 60P in standard def? or did he shoot the whole video in SD?

If so, looks really good for SD.

Nima, was there a specific reason you shot in SD? was it the slow motion?

Alan and George: I used Tim's Bleach Bypass Scene File. Yes I think the quality is still fine even when uprezzed to 720, but I go back to SD for the end product most of the time, so I'm not really looking to uprezz it for the final product.

Dennis: like George said I captured it straight to tape. The only reason I shot parts of it in HDVSD is the slow-mo, if I could - I would go 720 in the slow-mo's too. ALL performance shots (where they are rapping) were shot in 720/30p. Maybe some day i'll get the hd250, so I can shoot 50p and 60p at 720.
