Closed Captioning
 
Quick question.... I hope. I am shooting a 30 minute infomercial for air on local affiliates. Do I have to go to the trouble and expense of close captioning? If so what do I do... Hold me.

Thanks again.
Mike

Jon Glen May 10th, 2006 09:31 PM

perhaps posting this question an area that will actually get a response will work out a little better for you

Jon Glen May 10th, 2006 09:40 PM

somone loves Sergio Leone.......and me too!

i like it, very cool

Michael Russell May 11th, 2006 08:32 AM

Hey captain nice attitude.

Jeremy Hughes May 11th, 2006 11:03 AM

That was a refreshing post - looks like a sweet concept. Did you write the script?

Dean Bull May 11th, 2006 07:49 PM

Leone? Whose that? hahaha. Yeah man, he is rad.

I wrote the screenplay myself, but had it worked over by some better writers. One of my key moments was realizing that some people are just better suited at certain task than others.

Anyway, I hope you all take the clip in the spirit it was posted. It's an artifact now, just one element among many that was used to raise funds an inch at a time.

Plus -- I enjoyed building the coffin.

Honestly, the feature film is going to be very very different.

Best to you all,


Dean.

PS Jeremy... is that little red riding hood with a sniper rifle!? You gotta clue me in on what you got going with that... it sounds right up my alley. Private or public, whatever works for you.... I just gots to know!

Black comedy/James Blunt parody/Noir film (xl2/beta g35 #0004)
 
Hi everyone, just like to get some feedback on our films. I didn't direct the first 2, but I am the DP for all and directed the 3rd.
First is a short black comedy about a man contemplating suicide called "Perfect Day."
http://www.funkalicious.net/perfectday/perfectday.mov

The second is a parody music video of James Blunt-this is self explanatory. (original recorded material)
http://blacklotuspro.trafikfilms.com.../emotional.mov

The third film is a noir style film called "Ginger" directed by myself.
http://www.trafikfilms.com/ginger/Ginger.mov

We would most appreciate it if you would please post your thoughts, comments!


Thanks,

Software Promo
 
Finished this recently, kinda more of a motion graphic thing. I don’t know what it would be called other than a promo video, but its want the client wanted. Do you think its to slow? Do you think its to fast? Setting the pace for this one seemed hard for some reason. Let me know what you think.

Mike,

I noticed in another thread you were speaking about vignetting with your adapter... in this film were you using your 50mm or the 28mm?

thanks,

jg

Koa Miyamoto May 13th, 2006 03:51 PM

I uploaded the films onto google video. I'm not very happy with all the bad compression on them though, so please check out the original links first, they should be working. Thanks! Any comments and critiques are appreciated.

XL2+M2 Clip
 
These are shots I did with my XL2 and the M2 Adapter.
I originally posted it on the XL2 thread and I thought it will be nice here also.
I would like critics on the looks please, which light set up is best and if non, please let me know what are the + and -.

Thanks.

Mike Kim May 15th, 2006 12:28 AM

I was using a Canon FD 50mm 1:1.4 lens, but not with the sony hdr-hc1 so I wouldn't know if the vignetting issue is the same. However, both cameras have the same filter size (37mm).

Also, note that it's the regular letus35 (not enhanced, or flip).

TV news video format?
 
Hello, I have a DV camera and will be shooting some footage of a festival. I've been asked to edit the footage into a short 30 sec movie which will be shown on a broadcast news TV station. My question is, what format do most TV news stations prefer and what ever it is, can my DV movie be converted to that format so it can be shown on air?

Greg Boston May 16th, 2006 06:48 AM

60i 4:3 is what I send them. Most if not all local progamming via studio, live shot, or tape is done that way. The network primetime and sports stuff is all pretty much HD and 16:9.

For on air, you will either dub to a beta deck or they will have an adapter (DVCPRO deck cartridge) that your mini-dv tape will fit into.

News broadcast streaming
 
Hello all, my work, a local T.V. news station for our area, is trying to use either a computer with controller software to stream video directly over a microwave system to our head end for broadcast. We have the microwave setup in place, but we are still deciding on what to do to stream our content directly. Our current setup are DVCAM decks with leightronix timers to control the units, but what we would like to do is stream directly from a computer directly into the microwave system. Any thoughts or ideas on software that will manage and control our programming? We were also looking at the Sony DSR-DR1000 as an option to dump our programming into. We'd like to network our computer to it and dump our video to it and let the timers do the rest. Is that a better option? Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks.

Something new from film school.
 
Lots of problems with this one. The exercise was to develop a three person dialogue, we got a randomly selected crew of first-year students.

I had a Director Of Photographer that can't speak English and direct gaffers properly, discountinuous sound capture from the sound recordists (and also the fact that were shooting on location at our school), and the DP's f*** resulting in the editing system's decks at the campus not being able to read the DV tape properly.

I had to take the tape home and edit on my system. Note that I'm not supposed to be the editor for this project, I just wanted to try scrap together something coherent from the mess because I know that the assigned editor, who also happens to barely ever show up for class, will ruin it even more.

Can't say I'm proud of it at all. It's not what's going to be marked though, the actual group editor is going to have to do that, and I can see it coming out a LOT worse than this.
The credit at the end is a bit of a joke I had to get my friend, Rees, to act at very short notice but I promised I'd make him a star...At least I tried

Chris Ivanovskis May 19th, 2006 01:39 AM

You can pretty much send them whatever you want. At my station we can convert ANYTHING so as long as you're not stuck in 94 and shooting SVHS you're fine. The actual frame settings don't matter much as with newer Adrenaline editors it will be coverted to whatever we need anyway. So shoot away.

Advice. Shaky hand help crazy zooms are no good. Find a shot and hold it. Find lots of them like that. Give yourself 5 seconds of a solid shot each time.

Movie I Made For School (The Beach at The End of The Road)
 
This is one of my first movies, things I know were really bad: compression (and the video quality) and some of the dialouge in the beginning. I'm sorry about those things :(


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wELhj1It91Y

ten minutes, but it'll go fast! I promise.

PS: I saw some people getting huffy about music in the last posts, I have rights to 2/3 Artists' music in my movie and I'm talking via email now to the third. Just so ya know.



Please, lots of feedback! :P :P :P Thanks for checking it out

James OClaire May 19th, 2006 10:07 AM

Hey, I had problems loading your video, is it my computer or is the video not up anymore?

Delivering Down Converted HDV over the Air
 
Hello all,

I just finished watching the second episode of a show we produce for our local market and have some concerns about our work flow. This is very serious as we are the first to shot and deliver HD content in our area. Even though no local content is broadcast as HD it's still put out over the cable to there HD subscribers. We have a lot of people looking at us to see how and where we could screw up and todays show presented some serious problems with the field order of the footage after down converting to SD.

We shoot with a Canon XLH1, capture and edit in the .AIC, then import a self contained movie into an Uncompressed 10 bit FCP project timeline, render it out letterboxed, then dub it to Beta SP. I tried using Compressor to down convert the HD master to 10 bit Uncompressed this episode (the second airing of the show) so that we could save render time in the FCP timeline. It worked wel but it seemed that the field order was reversed when I altered the Compressor preset. So we used Joe's Field Fixer to reverse the frame order and it looked normal and very nice after that. The standard Compressor preset, just left alone, looked like it was converted to 30p by default. I liked the look of it but my boss felt more secure with the interlaced footage after reversing the fields.

When it aired today it looked horrible! Wierd thing is, the commercial spots we put in looked fine. They were regular old Beta SP.

Following is part of a message I sent to the engineers at the station to get a little more insight into what we should be doing:

"We shoot the show in HD and then down convert it to SD. As you are aware, HD has a reversed field order than SD. We tried a different render process for the 2nd episode that aired this weekend which involved reversing the field order in post before we printed to tape. When watching the show on our studio monitor it looked like all was in order but when I saw it over the air, it appeared that the program footage field order was reversed. The commercial spots looked fine. They were standard SD Beta SP. The field reversal was not as noticeable when viewed on a standard SD TV but on an HD set it was exacerbated because of the up conversion.

Here's what I wonder:

- I'm wondering if you could give us some pointers on the best way to deliver the show. Tape? Digitally on disc?

- When a show is put into your system, in what codec is it broadcast over the air? MPEG2?

- My understanding is that MPEG2 field order is the opposite of DV and Uncompressed 10 bit."

If any of you guys could help out as well, I would GREATLY appreciate it, as it's My ass that's on the line for suggesting the workflow mentioned above.

Thanks.

Ash Greyson May 22nd, 2006 10:50 AM

Sounds like something funky happened in Compressor. I have never had to adjust anything but I am delivering DVCproHD masters that I then dub straight to BetaSP...or SD masters on D5s...

Thanks for the response Ash. Do you think there's a problem with my workflow? Any suggestions on how to go from 1080i AIC to 10 bit uncompressed to Beta SP?

You must have a Kona card or similar if you go from DVCPRO HD to Beta. At this time we have only the AJA Io.

Thanks.

Ash Greyson May 22nd, 2006 04:30 PM

I usually dont do the polish or final dump but we do use a Kona card. Most the time we capture DVCproHD, edit the show then rebuild uncompressed for CC, etc. then out thru the Kona to the decks. Never had to do any frame reversal that I am aware of.

New shows up on the Victory 5 network
 
A bunch of new shows up since I posted last. We have a new video show in the works called 'VSides' (http://www.v5tv.com).
Let's see, new episodes Rewired, Distortions and The Sada Show. New stuff coming next week as well! All for portable devices.
As always, comments are welcome.

The LOT!

Just thought I would share this. I personally do not feel compelled to get involved. Look at projectgreenlight and they made fun of those people. Mark Burnett is a good TV producer, but I think this is a career killer. Not a starter. Maybe I'm wrong, but I just thought I'd share.

Application... "For entertainment purposely only..." hmmm.

Hi Ash,

Since you use the Kona card I'd like to ask you a few questions. What camera are you shooting HD with? We're using H1, shooting 1080 60i. I'm ordering a Kona LH today. We cut on a dual 2 ghz G5 with PCI-X.

With the Kona there will be no need to capture via FW, is this correct? Will I need to still connect to FW if I want camera control from FCP 5?

Can you give me a little more detail on your work flow? Currently we capture via FW in the .aic.

Thanks a bunch.

Ash Greyson May 26th, 2006 11:55 PM

We shoot a variety, mainly Varicam but also XLH, HVX, and a little JVC. In my case I have access to a DVCproHD deck and transfer everything to it before capturing thru the Kona, never have taken it direct from the camera. Most of the XLH footage was shot directly to the HD deck via HD-SDI... it looks STUNNING and SHARPER than the $100K+ Varicam (I still like the Vari look better though).

This is a demo spot I've put together for a local store. This is not the final treatment. Just a way for him to see how I propose we do the final. I still need to get a few shots to fill in where I had to use some generic stills.

It's only a couple of Mb's and 30 seconds long.
