One hell of an excellent job Chris. I just watch the video and read the article. I'm impressed with the footage, and just as impressed you managed to get all that done using the band as crew :)

Thanks for the equipment breakdown too. It's always interesting to see what other people are using because it opens up the thinking on different aspects of shooting out of the normal comfort zone. Being able to see how it all turned out is even better!

Thanks again for posting this!

Cheers Dave, glad the write up and Karl the DPs equipment breakdown were of use! Between Vimeo and DVInfo.net and a handful of other sites, I wouldn't be where I am today given DIY nature of indie video. Indeed, seeing what other people do sure helps get the mind to open up!

Ryan, totally, the hack does wonders eh? I never expected it so soon - wishfully, yes, but now that it's here, awesome. I'll post the projects when they're done for sure.

Mortgage Broker Promotional Video

Again, the GH1 serves us well. Shot on location for a Mortgage Brokerage promotional video, the audio was done on a dual-setup (into camera, and external device). Note, this camera has have the G13 hack - bitrate could still go higher, I have no doubt of that. Here's the result our team came up with on site:

GH1 in action (behind the scenes)

Thanks Carlo - awesome hack isn't it?!

I hope the GH2 can be modified in a similar fashion when it comes out - but - doubtful. Till then, GH1 onward!

Here's footage of the behind-the-scenes of the Habit music video - you can see me operating the GH1 (handheld). I tried to keep the B-Roll behind the scenes footage that the New channel got to not show the GH1's profile or head on.. it's so tiny! ;)

(p.s. how do i embed youtube on this site?

SIZE does not matter anymore...

Christopher,

I AM IMPRESSED BY YOUR WORK...and I think people will get used to see smaller rigs delivering professional products. Afterall you just proved that it's the person behind the camera that matters, NOT the SIZE of the camera. I find myself cutting in more and more clips with the GH 13 next to my 2 EX1s, and believe me, many times I end up liking what I get our of the GH MORE than the EX!

I don't know if it has been asked already, but what lenses did you use for this video?

Thank you.

NEW Video.. 1 Min B-Roll Promotional!

Much appreciated Carlo - great little camera, and it's size makes it all the more manageable! The lenses used for the Habit video were old Nikon primes - primarily a 50mm F1.4.

Again, more proof this camera can do PROFESSIONAL: Hired to shoot this short video for a massive development near where I live - it's a combination of GH1 footage and still photographs - shooting style was done in a way to best match the photographs that were intercut with. Would love to hear what you think!

GH1 + Stedicam + Wedding Photographer Video

New video - shot this with a DIY stedicam and a freshly updated (hacked?) GH1. Worked very well! Shot with AVCHD 60P to get the slow motion shots - the GH1 was worth every penny for the slow motion function. Would love to get feedback - cheers!

EDIT: Shot all wides with stock zoom lens. Close ups with Tamron zoom (w/marco ability) lens.

More Pro Lumix (with G13 hack.. )

Hi all.. here is more professional Lumix work - would love to hear what you think! The Maui video was for 'fun' of course, but, did it with a Jib, editing & grading, so I figure it's worth posting.. let me know your thoughts!

Really liked the YES piece. GH13 I guess. Did you shoot it at 720p? Greenscreen for background?
The spot flowed very nicely from sound bite to sound bite. The last guy was a perfect ending.
Great work.
