Flanell (and ninjakicks in slow mo!) DVX100 & Sgpro r3

Hi there!
I came home early from work today and had about an hour left to use the sun that was still shining.

Anyways.. Heres for you youtubers:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=yXFIIGMcD00

Bigger and better: (80mb)
http://files.filefront.com/flanellwe.../fileinfo.html


Used my Nikon 50mm f/2.0.. I think I had it at f/4.0 and f/5.6 for the most of it..
And if I remember correctly the shutter was at 1/25 for the 25p shots.. the slowmo bit was 1/120 and 50i..



on a sidenote:

Does 1/25 shutter create sort of a "videoish" motion?
I don't know why.. maybe it's the lens.. didn't notice this with my Canon FD lens..

Lightsaber with the SGpro r3

Testing out the effect..

It's out of focus.. never mind that:P It's a bitch to focus with a small LCD monitor


So here's for you youtubers:

Oh.. and btw.. I know that lightsabers don't have shadows.. and I was aware of it when I shot it.. I just didn't care now for this little test..

Actually my favorite part was the time ramp toward the end where the actor brought the light saber toward the camera. Nice DOF!
I was thinking about making a short film where the light saber is used allot.... Then I realized how much rotoscoping goes into it and decided against it. lol

Straight Blast (fightscene shot with Brevis)

hey there,

I just finished a fight scene I did and thought that I post it here:
http://www.german-kungfu.com/index.p...=MovDet&mid=27 (quicktime version is english, divx german)

or 720p version:

we used a Canon XH A1 combined with the brevis adapter and quite a wild camerasetup:

had to use my XL1s as monitor, coz my cheap small tv used its batteries SOOOO fast .. luckily the selfbuild 20 euro camerarig made it possible to use the XL1 :)

the team was one cameraoperator and the two guys in front of the camera (which included me) .. thats all.

hope you have some fun :)
take care
Ulrik

PS: is there any way that I can change my nickname .. coz everybody uses his full name and I still got what I used 6 years ago ?

Nicely shot, but it had three problems...

First, the sound effects were out of sync.

Second, the editing called attention to itself.

Third, they went longer than 90 seconds.

This one isn't as good as the vimpire piece you did earlier.

Nice. My only question is a dumb one. You can see the shadow of the lightsaber on the talents face at one point, but it's a lightsaber. Would that happen? That's not rhetorical. I think given the fact that there's a stronger light source that the hypothetical saber, it very well could. I just don't know what wattage lightsabers have. : )

I missed the 80s Christian decade. I didn't get into it until way later (1995ish ... during dc Talks "Jesus Freaks" era), but this blows me away. I can't WAIT!

Yup.. I am very aware of it.. and was when I shot it.. this was just a small test of rotoscoping and a cinematic look.. But I know very well that.. "light.. does not produce a shadow" :P hehe

I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. For 10 years I worked as artist/media liaison at the SonShine Festival in Minnesota, so I've met a lot of these guys and heard a lot of these stories.

I liked it, great concept.

A few things:
- the sound and editing needs to be tighter
- some of the scenes in the begining would be more professional looking if done with a tripod.
- loved some of the music which you used to create suspence

Overall, nice work!

That was great! Like you, I met my wife online. Meeting her was the best thing that happened to me! I'm here in Hawaii, she's from Malaysia. After being with her for 3 years and having travelled long distances to see each other, we finally got married in 2001. Like you, we experienced vastly different taste in food. Malaysian food is a cross of Thai, Chinese, and Indian which makes it one of the tastiest in the world.
When she first came to Hawaii, she thought the food was horribly tasteless!

She also thought she was in a time warp because everything here was so slow and backwards compared to the life she lived in Kuala Lumpur.

In your case, one of you will have to move in order to be with each other. If it's right for you, marry her! It's amazing how much you grow as a person if you share life's experiences with a person of another culture.

I hope it works out for the best of you both!

That's just lovely. I can tell you put a lot of work in it. I'm sure your GF will be very impressed too! Congrats!

At the end, should put a CG saying "to be continued..."

Are you guys going to move to taiwan or she will move to the US? It's tough for LD relationship.
