Hi CJ,

I missed you at the projection of your short Roadside Attraction in Tiburon a few years back. It was on a week day and I think you couldn't come.
Denise told me you often visit them but I missed you there too.
Now it seems you moved down to L.A.
Hopefully I'll meet you someday. I'd love to see you at work, I could also give you a hand

Hugues - I was sorry to miss Shriekfest this year. Usually I love to go just to hang out and watch the films and chat with Denise, but I was actually filming this video at the time in Dallas. I'll be there next year, definitely... if I'm not shooting anything that weekend. =)

Andzei - We're Mac based here and we had to do a lot of editing on set. My assistant had to rough together the day 1 footage so that it could be played back on a tv. We only used an older apple powerbook laptop... so not a very powerful computer at all. We were able to do color correction and flop the image all in realtime with it. When we were in post, I used a Quad G5 and it cut the video like butter. No cineform codec was used, just Panasonic's own DVCPRO-HD codec that comes with Final Cut. Is cineform even available for the Mac? In my experience, when I shoot with a Panasonic camera, it doesn't make much sense to work outside of a Panasonic codec.

Thanks and feel free to ask anything. I'll do my best to answer.

Did you use a Micro Follow Focus for focusing? It looks good, but expensive.
Is it hard to focus smoothly and not shaking the camera at the same time. Its probably impossible to shoot from hand, but from tri pod.

Have you ever tried using hvx200 + m2 to shoot from a shoulder? I saw a link while ago, where it was done...


thanks again!

Anzei - I did not use a follow focus for this video, or any others. I am looking forward to getting one, I just have yet to do so.
Every shot in the video had to have focus pulled at some point. Sometimes it was complicated, other times it wasn't. The follow focus would probably have made it easier but I didn't have much of a problem just pulling from the lens. I noticed no camera shakewhen I did so, on sticks or handheld.

And yes, I did shoulder mount the camera several times... not the most comfortable solution, but it worked and had no problems pulling focus.

yeah, follow focus is probably very confortable, but its so expensive, im also considering buying it...

and hopefully the last question from me:

Can you name a brand of shoulder mount you used? Do you think you could do pretty much same just with a tripod?

thank you for your replies and i really appreciate it!
Keep up good work!

No shoulder pads were used. I just threw the sucker up there. I couldn't shoot for long periods, but it worked okay. I'd love to get something more comfortable soon, with some pistol grips.

Very nice CJ...I especially like the sequence leading up to the shot at 4:18, and that shot was gold.

Did you do anything to tease latitude out of this setup? You've got a lot shots which include the sky.

Great work CJ, very impressive, loved the contrast on the outdoor stuff, almost looks surreal. What were the HVX camera settings, and did you do much colour correction?

PS: Great website also.

Thanks for posting.
Pete.
