What was the music, by the way? It sounds quite familiar.


The music was Garage Band.

Its a loop based music program. I created the tracks myself. I often hear loops in national ads that are Apple's Garage Band/Soundtrack loops. So you might have heard them used somewhere else.

There was more info in the wraparounds for that package.

Thanks for the compliments!

I use the HVX almost daily. Honestly, I'm not crazy about it. A lot of what I need to shoot relys on a camera's point-and-shoot capabilities as I end up running and gunning a lot. I find the HVX's autofocus is way slow and its ability to handle contrast is terrible.
I don't like that the headset output is too low either. The LCD is dim and not representative of the actual video.
It's also VERY heavy even w/out gear on it, add gear it gets way worse! And the lens is not wide enough for my liking meaning it needs a wide adapter (which will make it heavier.) It ends up being so heavy and bulky I put it back and grab a full size Ikegami 75W.

We got them to replace an aging PD170, but the truth is I find myself still using the PD170 for quicky shoots because its so easy to get good results with without trying. The Sony is a lot tougher too. Recently it survived sandstorms and an Improvised Explosive Device in Iraq!! I'm not kidding!!!

With that said, the HVX shoots amazing shots when conditions are right. And I like it because it shoots real HD. But, I am so-so about it otherwise, though I wish I really liked it.

Live music video for pop/rock band
I recently shot some footage of the local band Nutria performing at a club. One camera (DVC 80), no additional lighting, and no prior clue of the slightly awkward layout of the club. I hope to get at least two videos out of it before I use up all of the best coverage. Here's the first, I'd love any input you folks might have:


(BTW, for some reason, the Quicktime version looks a little more washed-out than the Windows Media version)

Liked it
Its very real, I like how it forces you to be a part of the experience and doesn't apologize for the situation, very real, i liked it. you felt like you were an observer right there watching the dynamics of the threesome, very cool.

Moviemaking Video for Noobs (JVC HDV)
CLICK HERE to see the whole clip from my upcoming educational video series, the 2nd, and last free one: SHOT TYPES

It's a 15 meg WMV file, 640x360

This is aimed towards complete noobs and will be marketed to High School and early colleges for sales with this type of video in a series on DVD. Remember this is for the absolute BEGINNERS...

We shot in HDV with the JVC HD110 camera in both 24P and 30P modes and I edited in Avid Xpress Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 along with some work in After Effects. Mike Tavares was the shooter for me and the BMW was on loan from Buzz Productions.

Thanks all.

The Crimes of Mr. Lowry
Just wanted to share my film noir animation/live action film "The Crimes of Mr. Lowry". Been working on it for 3 months and currently still a work in progress. Shot with an XL2 and entirely on green screen.

There is a formula that I got from theforce.net where you import the footage into after effects and basically paint a light saber on each frame over a stick that I was swinging around.

Sheldon Blais January 2nd, 2007 08:44 PM

I thought it was well produced, well lit and very clear on the net. Good stuff.

G. Scott Roberts January 2nd, 2007 11:55 PM

Very good quality all around. Great information for beginners.

Gabriel Yeager January 3rd, 2007 12:34 PM

Wow Andy! That looks awesome! What are you plans to get it founded?

That Cablecam system you have looks/works nice! I would like to make myself one of those. Do you think you could post a parts list of it? I would really like to make one... And yes, I know someone who can weld.

Best of luck! And thanks for the fun Trailer!

Sheldon Blais January 3rd, 2007 12:43 PM

The cable cam shots are sick. Excellent production.

First Post - :30 sec TV Spot
Alrighty, at the peak of initimidation factor since I usually feel like a mouse among lions when I view a lot of material on here, I'm diving in with my first post for critique-time. I was primarily an audio guy and computer guru before jumping into the Video Production arena, where I've just passed the 2 year mark. I'm wanting to start having a more polished, higher-quality flow to my projects (primarily cable TV spots and corporate video) and am ready to take your perceptions and suggestions to heart.

This is a :30 second spot I produced for my company's economic development department to air on our local cable systems...


Alrighty, I'm ready for the brutal yet educational experience from you, woohoo!
