Super16 / DVX100 Video - ET Bike Chase Parody!

Hey guys, this here is a video i did back in April for a very talented rock band called Forever Changed...

check it out: http://www.floodgaterecords.com/encounter

The performance shots were done on Super 16mm while the chase scene was done on the DVX100. Let me know what you think.

Also, check out the band at www.foreverchanged.net.

That was very well done! Now, how did you shoot the head on shot of the bikes taking off over the van as far as the scale is concerned and then the profile flying shot? Was that on a stage? Do you have any production stills that you could post?

Wow

That was VERY good. Makes me want to buy the album.

What did you use to edit this?

Was the rack focus between the two singers near the end done in-cam or in post?

Best,
Jeff

hey thanks man.. you really should buy the album. It's definately money well spent!

As for editing, i used Final Cut pro HD... I edited 2-3 staight weeks at a friends house who had a mac... editing was pretty crazy! But its my favorite part.

The rack focus was done on camera... My DP was, Johnny Toxic, this amazing guy from Fullsail which was a high-end film college out of orlando. We shot the performance on their Arriflex Super16 camera... and it came with all sorts of expensive gadgets. We were blessed man i tell you!

That ending flying scene was so old school music-video-corny that I laughed, it went well with the music beat and the DVX footage matched really well too. Green screen was really good and I was glad to see the kids made it over the van versus going through it, well done! =)

By any chance did you use the anamorphic adapter or was it straight DVX?

hey buddy, yea thanks the cheese factor was definatley intended! We didn't use an anamorphic adapter... however we had to letterbox it in post to match the performance shots which was shot in 16:9 but with the expensive arri camera of course.

I don't know if it's possible to do a focus rack in post. It would definitely be more time-consuming than simply turning the focus ring.
