It sounds like a great idea - almost too good to be true! Would there be any content guidlines or limitations? I'm not talking about putting porn up there, but say if a film had bad language or contentious controversial subject matter. SOuld there also be file size limits - For example, I have a short film in 720p h.264 format and it's around 200mb in size. Or are you thinking mainly along the lines of camera tests like Ben's?

Hi,

No file size limits, and no content restrictions. (Well the only content restriction I might consider would be that this would be for the purpose of DVinfo/DVXuser forum posts, and not for personal use).

So Dylan, your 200mb film would be fine.

I have noticed some posters saying they don't want to use youtube to host their vids, does anyone know why or what restrictions there are with youtube that might make this useful?

Thanks,

Matt

YouTube reserves the right to use/distribute/modify your video. It's a non-exclusive argument, but it does bother a lot of people. All similar services have the same agreement (yahoo video, myspace, etc).

You might want to put a restriction on copyrighted material (i.e. not owned by the person who posts the video).

ClipShack doesn't appear to have that agreement. They do say you grant them "a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable right and license to use, copy, adapt, publish, transmit, distribute, perform, display, reference, index and cache...your Content and any materials you submit to ClipShack," but that is only "to provide the Site, Services, and Content to you and to perform our obligations under these Terms of Use."

They allow video sizes up to 100 MB, and give 5 GB space total for clips and photos. They do convert video to the Flash format, so if you don't like that format you should be aware of that fact.

General composition and locations are nice. Most all the footage needs some CC. The only real mistake is the vast overuse of the servo zoom. Try to do dolly moves if you want movement. Manual snap zooms are fine but servo zoom moves are something you just wont find very much in professional work and you have dozens of them in this video.

The music video is very cliche driven and unoriginal. Just about every part of this video looks like 90% of the other music videos you see on TV. So in the end, it didn't hold my attention. Just my opinion, so don't take my comments to heart. Otherwise it looks well done and I can see a lot of effort.

LOL. The intro is hilarious, his acting was convincing too.

The music is sometimes too loud and it can be distracting, but maybe that is just me. I would have made the intro black and white, and the rest in colour but it still works. Other than that is well made, it looks professional and I am sure the University would greatly appreciate it.

Bali diving videos

I've uploaded a page of Bali diving videos that I shot when I was there in May.

Any comments you have, good or bad, would be greatly appreciated.

Most bands, labels and MTV WANT cliche, that is why they all look that way. FOr every Michele Gondry video there are 50 McG videos they run... The music video has become less an art and more a generic showcase for a band....

Hi Dale,

Was shooting with a Sony VX2000 and Light & Motion Sunray halogen lights. The lights have a blue gel over them to knock back the warmth a bit and reduce the sheer amount of light so I don't get blown out whites and can get closer to the fish. I then either run in auto white balance or I manually white balance on white gaffer tape stuck on my fin.

I then usually drop the red down a tiny amount in Sony Vegas to get the colour balance how I want it.

Cheers,

Nick
