Yeah, that's something I'm going to have to work at. 2-cam interviews are definitely the way to go. In case you're wondering, the only reason the wide shot cam for the All Purpose Voltage Heroes interview was black and white is because the footage was hot and it wasn't matching up with my footage.

Lots of first-time things to work out but I think each episodes going to keep getting a bit tighter.

Sundance Gets a Jolt of Adrenaline During X-Dance!

It is with great pleasure and pride that I announce the nomination of my Saab Salomon film, "Adrenaline Hunters - The Movie," for Best Editing at the X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival 2006. I was nominated for Best Director. We were awarded Best Soundtrack! "Adrenaline Hunters - The Movie" was one of the 26 films to be selected from over 300 films to participate in the X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival 2006 held during the Sundance Film Festival.

The awards ceremony will be broadcast on Fuel TV in March.




X-Dance
X-Dance is the Academy Awards of the action sports world.

Each year, the world's top action sport filmmakers and athletes, cutting-edge bands and DJs, and key figures from the entertainment industry gather under one roof to celebrate action sports culture at the x-dance Action Sports Film Festival. Launched in 2001, x-dance coincides each year with the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and screens the best of the best in action sports film, along with post-screening Q&A's and panels with athletes, filmmakers and industry icons.

Running concurrently with the Sundance Film Festival, X-Dance was held in Park City, Utah, on January 20-24th, 2006.


The Adrenaline Hunters
They are restless souls, the Adrenaline Hunters. Over the past 3 years we have filmed these athletes in some of the most beautiful, inaccessible, wild and uncompromising terrain on the surface of this diverse world: torrents, forests, mountains, seas, snow, rocks, dirt, water, and air with bikes, parachutes, kayaks, skis, boards and bare hands. Their exploits have been immortalized on 1 million DVDís distributed internationally, and have won awards at the Mountain Film Festival in 2004 & 2005.


Adrenaline Hunters - The Movie
Adrenaline Hunters - The Movie is a 52-minute film featuring the best of Salomon's Adrenaline Hunters' exploits mixed with music from Labels Records like Asian Dub Foundation, and cutting-edge groups such as Steriogram, Rubin STEINER, Thunderball and many more.

Through winter and summer, across the endlessly varied landscapes in search of perfection... not just for the rush, but to unlock the philosophy of The Edge.

Against these unadulterated backdrops, the athletes look more like animals than humans. Like a gecko clinging to a wall, Klem Loskot moves sinuously up a sheer rock cliff. Jerome Ruby leaps from the lonely, lofty summit of a sandstone spire and swoops towards the desert below, more falcon than man. David Arnaud descends raging mountain rivers as fluidly and powerfully as the fish that call it home.

Australia, Canada, Madagascar, Morocco, New Zealand, Norway, the United States, and Vietnam provide the organic arenas for their high performance antics.

HD video using Windows Media

I captured and rendered my first video using the Windows Media HD 1080 30p resolution. Its a 3.5 minute surf video from the finals of the Globe Pro surfing contest in Sebastion Florida.

I posted it up to my site at www.AdventureOnline.TV/ch9.php

Its a pretty big file, 200 Meg, so give it 30sec to a minute to start playing (with a broadband connection of course!).

Must have taken you at least 8 hours to render, or 4.

Jack,

The m2t clip was 1.9 gig, the proxy dv file was 2.2 gig.

The video is 3 min 30 secs and it took one hour and 31 min to render.

PCH Cruise

On Saturday there was a VW cruise with 100+ cars so I figured I would break out the Sticky Pod for the first time.

Here is the video: http://www.pimpedwheels.com/pchcruise/pch.wmv

One suggestion I have is when using the knuckle to the camera it seems like the camera will wobble more, and then I tried using my bogen quick release plate and it made the video very stable and I feel more safe having the camera going 80+ MPH.

This is the plate I use:

Missing

The trap is set, the victim chosen ... but will they fall for the bait?

http://www.engelbrecht.ch/Missing/movie.shtml

Comments and critics welcome.

This is our fifth short. It was really a learning exercise to try to build suspense and apply some of the things I learnt about action sequences from "Objects in Mirror".

Thanks in advance,

Geoff

I really liked the sound and music, very atmospheric. Camera work and editing wasn't that great. Some jump-cuts and unclear shots. The first time we see the missing poster - shouldn't it be a CU (it's too far) and show the girl to confuse the audience?

Photography was nice but nothing amazing.

Plot was okay for a 2min. short but a bit predictable. It doesn't make sense for the girl to run into the dark tunnel when she's being chased by someone! The car driver should have left the car too - he nearly ran her over.

Sorry if I'm being a bit anal but I feel I would have enjoyed it more if you polished it a bit.

I don't understand what you mean regarding showing the girl?

I guess that depends on who is chasing who.

Best Regards,

The trailer stopped playing about half-way through. Might be my connection, I'm not sure. I have a pretty good connection.

Hi,
Liked the trailer, looked well shot, although I didn't like the animated title cards (they look too video for me)

Showreels - Whats The Lowdown*

Hi everyone, just posting a question to those that have compiled reels in the past or are about to...
I have alot of stock footage from a variety of projects and am looking to produce a reel myself.

What do you suggest to put in it:?

How long should it be?

Should it be the best looking images - or crafted film shoot shots - or just a medley of images cut and edited in a way to showcase ones style..

welcome any thoughts and advice on this..

Thanks

Quinn
