Put Up Your Best Footage

no offence to anyone, but the footage i have seen from the dvx100 looks ok but everything everyone films and puts on the web sucks, meaning everyone is filming like rooms, and camera bags, and hands and stuff. I want to see some REAL ART. like THE BEST TIME LAPS (like buildings, and people). just put up some cool stuff.

Here's a link to my first attempt shooting with my DVX100 in the mountains in June. I just came back from another trip and took 2 hours of waterfalls, mountains and trains. Don't know what I'm going to do with it all but it was fun.

Yang Wen! Damn! The footage is great...that's a given. But how in the heck did you compress it so much to be able to present it in that HUGE size???

HAHAHA I wish I can take credit. I guess the post was ambiguous but this is just a site that i came across that I believe is some of the best work seen with the DVX. I had no affiliation with them.

I guess just for posterity's sake we should add some of the details:

These films were both made by Ryan McFaul (there is more stuff at his site, if you go up one level from the posted link to his main page.)

If I remember right he posted the first piece ('gay boyfriend' music video) this last winter and has a very nice write up and behind the scenes section on his website. (Two days worth of footage mixed with 500+ hours of editing and fx work...) There are some really nice examples of how to pull elements from the footage and increase production value in post.

As for the compression/size I believe it is a 320x240 movie that has been 'doubled' in the browser.

And just in case you missed, I would also highly recommend 'Plastic Hut' ;) If you bump into this Ryan, very nice work - I hope it is continuing to pay off beyond the compliments here.

Clayton

...also, FWIW I love the intro to the 'Motion Capture' piece. Nothing technologically fancy, just a really well thought out and shot sequence.

Too funny! That video is better than almost anything you see on SNL. look at the bottom of this page for the "nuts and bolts" on the production.

Eps 4 and 5 of the Lady X series

I shot these episodes on my DVX100, in "thick" mode, 24p, non-advanced mode.

I think we're the first episodes so far to use the DVX100. You can look at the other episodes to compare it with the other cameras, which are all listed on the individual episodes' pages, as the compression and sizes are all the same throughout.

No, we never planned to go to film, but we are going to combine the episodes and extra footage into a DVD version.

Also feel free to view the bicycle video if you have high-speed.
