BSCA

Hey Ryan
Thanks for your candid reply, much appreciated. Yeh the music thing was something we were highly contemplating, mainly because of copyright issues as the trailer is shown online. And not being a music fella myself, per se, it took me forever to compose it via soundtrack. I think we'll continue 'wrestle with self' as it may with regards to the music issue, however if we do it ourselves again, i'll probably get a sound designer to compose it as yes, you're right, not very professional *grin*

As for the length, it's approx 3 mins i reckon, and that was sorta our goal to present to the BCSA (British Columbia Surf Assosciation) .. it might be a bit long for a trailer, but i think we were aiming more towards a 'this is what we can do with the footage' as oppose to like a 30 sec promo trailer.

Again, thanks for the comments, and looking forward to hearing more. Cheers!
Vishal

Hey Michael. Seems your website is encountering some serious problems. The music & layout are all nice assets but there must be something not going right with the scripting. I tried it on IE, Mozilla, & Netscape and recieved the same results. It's really slow and the links aren't really responding.

But then again, that could be due to my ANCIENT computer. One thing that you might want to consider is having an html page with flash elements. My page is just like yours in that it doesn't really work universally on all computers. So I'm gonna have to rework it myself.

About 95% was shot with a DVX100.

Music Video (shot with XL1s)

For those who might remember, I became a video producer to a Milwaukee based artist who goes by the name of Cincere. Although we produced many intro montages which I have posted before, the time is finally here for Cincere's first actual music video.
The song and the video will be officially introduced in front of a live audience of over a thousand kids, politicians, and other community leaders on September 15th; I will be making my directorial debut. We have commitment from couple of the TV and radio stations to carry a live feed from the event and to broadcast the video on the morning show and most likly re-broadcast it for the night news.
"Daddy" is a very personal song and it covers a tough issue. It was an honor for me to be chosen to produce a video for it, and now, I would like to share it with the community from which I have learned so much over the last year. Please enjoy.

Photo montage

Instead of just exploring the different transitions that came with your editor, try using pans, zooms, composite different elements from several pictures... It can turn a slide show into something special.

Very cool video and message. Being a father myself I wish that other men would be fathers to their children. I can see a big difference in my son vs. other children with no father in the home.

I'm starting on my music video production and I have a XL-1s also. Question. Did not use movie mode or 60i?

Peace Jerome

Hi Jerome

Thanks for your comment. To answer the technical question, I went through some experimentation and discovered that I really get the best results if I shoot 60i and deinterlace it later which is what I always end up doing. I also used to shoot 16*9 but went back to 4*3 because the resolution is better. I than mask it in post to give it the wide screen look. My theory here is that You can go from interlaced to progressive but not the other way around and I also want the highest resolution footage to start with.
Let me know when your video is done. I would like to see it.

Thanks for the info. What you are saying makes sense to me. I have a possible project coming up. The artist has no budget but is asking about 16mm film for the shoot. I told her that we could do the video in DV and apply a film look in post. Hopefully she will go for that because I need more experience has a DP/camera man anyway.

Thanks Again,

Jerome

No budget and wants 16mm? That might turn out a bit pricey. My reasoning behind the music video is this. What are the chances of it going to the big screen? Most likely NONE, thus mini-dv, especially well edited would be beautifull. To get the great color and sharpness, I had my color boosted and sharpnes boosted all the way up in the camera settings. I also had a chance to see the video projected onto 8*12 foot screen and it looked fabulous so tell your performer than you can do just as good if not better for the ideas they have in mind.

Boston Film Festival - "Bert Prentice CEO"

Its been awhile since I posted to the boards. So here it is:

The short HD (transferred to 35mm) "Bert Prentice CEO" has been selected to screen at The Boston Film Festival, September 10-19, 2004.

For more details and other excellent films visit:

http://www.bostonfilmfestival.org

"A Day in the Life of a Corporate Brown-noser."

I moved from light and lens to in front of the camera for this provocative film.

I hope any of you in the greater Boston/New England area will be able to see the event.


Cheers!


Derrick Begin

"Derrick Begin is a nameless, low-rank employee whose job is to literally..." (Come to the festival to find out.)
