And other video (Motor TV program)

Well, this is a motor magazine that we are developing. These is the pilot program as we call it here. Just 8 minutes of what it will be on TV.

The file is a big one. About 70 Mb. It is encoded in divx. But quality is excelent also. You will like it. It is a test of BMWs Z8. Lot of action and moving images, not the usual in TV. It speaks for itself.

Almost all the work was done by me (even i change the credits so the same name wouldnt appear all the time). I was the director, videographer (;-))), editor, sound editor, 3d special effects (except for the engine was done by a hollywood major, not me), producer, cameraman, and production developer.

It is completely shot with canon Xl1, edited mostly in Ulead Video Editor, and sound edited in vegas audio. It was finished about 1 year ago.

I am sure you will have a lot of questions after watching it. Ask me if you want.

For those who do not understand spanish don worry and watch it until the end.

check out this video

Hey guys,

I have some friends who have a bike component company
and they asked me to get some video tape of a Professional
mountain biker using their equipement so they can put it up on their web site.

Well they just wanted something simple but I got creative
and made this.

They love it but I wanted to get some opinions from video guys.

The indoor footage was shot with a Canon GL2 and the first outdoor clip was shot with a Sony PC5 and the second was shot with a PD150. The effects were done in after Effects and it was edited in Premiere.


please right click and select 'Save As'

P.S. let me know what you think of the graffitti also.

Well, the watching was going a bit slow [especially with me not understanding too much espanol and all] =) but remembering what you said I watched until the end. And Im glad I did! The shipyard scene is awesome! Really. Great job, Miguel!

As for a technical question (Ill just ask one as the effects are incredible but, Im sure, way past my abilities, even with explanation), what system did you use to attach the camera to the car? Any advice on filming a car like you did the last 1.5 minutes of the clip (car spinning around with camera attached, etc.)?

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers.

Dom

Very nice! Though I'm not quite sure what "near zero drag" is.

To my eye the grafitti looks like it was there in the shot to begin with--doesn't look like a post effect at all.

The video is cool, nicely edited. I think you could have used some better font choice and placement, though to make it that much better. Something a bit more stylee, instead of that non-serif font you were using when describing the features of the bike.

thanx alot guys

I really appreciate the comments.

Robert:

thanx for saying that the graffitti looks real. It's hard to look at an effect I've created objectively when I'm trying to decide if it looks real enough.

The text was not written by me. I asked them what they wanted it to say and they told me.
The "near zero drag" refers to 2 things, the fact that the security guide (the part I zoom in on) is smooth enough to let you slide rails with little friction and that it guides the chain well enough that you can do "crankflips" (the part when the rider kicks his crank backwards 360 degrees) that are fast and smooth.
We might have to have a focus group of bikers watch it and see if they understand it. I think they would.


Keith:

the font was also their choice. They like it and the customer is always right, right?

I like to hear peoples input, so what do you think I should have done with the text placement.
By placement, do you mean in the timeline or on the screen?


thanx again guys

Why was the watching a bit slow? You mean the watchingor the download?

If you want to save the clip and then watch it go to www.macgregorcorp.com/km77tv.htm

and then save destiny as...

Well, for ataching cameras to the car there are several ways of doing it right.

Check this pictures:

Well, if the font was not your choice well that's what you have to do.

Other things you could have done with the font were some slow tracking, fades. In the spots where you weren't doing that faux technocheesy stuff. Otherwise, some tightening up of the leading.

Critique please

This is really the first thing I've eve done in Premiere or NLE in particular. It's a music video I did as a favor for a friends wedding.

http://kodacksdarkness.com/wedding_music_video.wmv

Done on a Canon ZR40, tripod mounted and manual mode.

Update 3/19/03

Not a peep? I realize it's not as professional as many of you could make. But a lot of what I meant to show the viewer I believe I suceeded. And I think it was a good first try.

Please give me feedback. Shooting video and documentaries is something I really want to do.

Everything, not least the music, makes a great, powerful forward flow in this video. But the zooming in and out of the green quadrangle slows it down. When I've seen that once, I've seen it. Don't make me have to see it over and over again.
Another improvement would be to let the main shot move on and just freeze the PIP.
