JVC-500 & XL's used in concert footage

It should be noted that in the concert series 4 XL's and a JVC-500 were used in the mix. Because of the reverse angles, you can physically see the different systems and get a great opportunity to see a picture comparison of these cameras in a production environment. The difference is not as noticable with this streaming footage as with the DV masters though. During the day a noticable difference is apparent, but once darkness sets in, the XL's and JVC look almost identical under the the stage lighting.

Interesting. I think DV is the next skill that the new crew of kids will learn to do (just like spreadsheets, word processing, Internet, and db).

The skill here is still learning how to tell a story and to put it to tape.

How hot are these kind of jobs?

I came across the ad below at a indie web site. I like what this
guy is doing for living. But, the question I have is, can I get continuous projects if I have something like this. How hard or how easy is it to get projects right now. If anybody is in the same business, how do you guys get the projects. How do you approach producers? And if you don't mind, how much do you earn a year?

$250 for a 10 hour day?

That's cheap!

It sounds like he/she is just starting off and trying to gain experience and a reel.


Pricing your video services really depends on what part of the country you're in. Most of the people I know here in Houston charge between $85 to $150 an hour for one camera Op/DP and camera.

As far as the steadiness of this work, that too depends where you are located. If you're in LA or New York you should be able to find jobs easier. It sounds like the ad above is strictly for film work, you will probably find more work in corporate video and event type stuff.

Elvis is right. My rate is $175.00 per hour plus trip charge, with a one hour minimum.

I don't know where this guy is from but that rate is far less than the going rate in the Washington area. My still photo day rate is $500 and video/film work bills at $200 a hour plus expenses (and both are considered bargain rates in this part of the country).

Large Screen Tv Style commercial for the net

Check this out. filmed with the Canon xl1, we want to break into TV Style comercials for the internet. This was the first time we tried to go full screen so its a bit rough and we lost our location just before the shoot so the set is just a digital creation. We filmed against a white wall.

File size is 4mb and it lasts 60 seconds so even the slowest cable or dsl wont have a long wait, let me know what you think

cheers

Jp.

This was really interesting and I loved the music.

I had to watch it twice to understand the wadded up piece of paper motif. Maybe it's all a little too much to take in at once. Shows great promise.

Hi Peter,

Yes its true. This was more an exercise on demonstrating the technique than a good story telling comercial. We tried to throw in as many ways to mix up the video and vector elements as possible and keep bit rates down.

The next one we will be much simpler and clearer.

thanks

Man I love the use of video in Flash. Is that a hard thing to achieve? I recently upgraded to MX and have not tried this yet. Also, I liked your use of the digital set. I felt that it really worked well with your presentation.

Nicely done production and I also liked the music.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your feedback.

Using video in Flash as simulated video ( sequence of images) is not hard but there are a few glitches you gotta watch out for. I learned a few new tricks with this production so hopefully I can do a better job on the next one.

I don't know about MX, some people have said good things about it others bad, we have not messed with it yet. This is Flash 4 we are using.

Lots of thanks on the digital set but I will never do that again, had to cut out all those frames by hand, my wrist is as big as watermelon :)

If anybody knows who recorded that music let us know. We found it on an old tape and would like to contact them. They might not even be around anymore.

Did you use KnockOut by Procreate? That is a great app for eliminating unwanted backgrounds. Discreet also makes a tool for working with "blue screen" type of images. I forget the name but I am sure somebody might recall what it is.
