Thanks for the good critique. I've updated the reel based on all the feedback I've recieved in the last week or so and I'll try and get around to re-uploading it for further insight shortly. Thanks.

Angie's a guy.

It's from the movie "Marty" with Ernest Borgnine. Watch it and you'll see what I'm talking about.

"V" is for vending machine

There is 1 vending machine to every 23 people in Japan. They generate an annual income of around 58,000,000,000 USD.
They work extremely efficiently and reliably and they are everywhere. They sell every imaginable product. However the most popular sell soft drinks. Machines that sell adult literature are to be found in certain areas but they are few and far between!

This video (my second attempt since migrating to MC about 2 months ago) shows a few of the more unusually placed machines.

On the right side of my site's entry page are a thumbnail and 2 buttons.
The "L" button is linked to the Higher Definition version and the "S" button to the smaller, low-definition video.
The clips are encoded for Flash.
I am always open to constructive criticism........
Regards,
Douglas

No criticism here, so I hope you’re also open to a little praise. This is one of the more entertaining videos I’ve seen on the board. I laughed and laughed at your comments—very well-written and well-placed within your video! You gave me a light-hearted and interesting glimpse of Japan that made me quite glad I took the time to watch.

Thanks for making my day brighter, Douglas. I love your sense of humor and look forward to more videos from you!

Fool's Day Coal

Hello,

This is my first time posting in this section so please be gentle.

I shot this with an HV20 (alas, with the camera mic) and edited with Edius. This is the first time I've used leading audio edits and I think it worked well. There is one 'regular' cut that I think worked well--I'm curious if anybody can spot it. I'm not a big fan of music in my train videos; I'd rather let the trains do the talking.

This vimeo version plays jumpy on my computer--I'm curious if its just my computer or something in the compression. I exported it as h.264 as per vimeo's instructions.

Its about 11:30 long so I hope it holds your interest throughout. Enjoy!

That's some nice train footage. Did you shoot it in 24 or 30F or in 60i?

There were only one or two spots where it was slightly jumpy playing on my computer.

Looking at this footage, it reminded me of stock footage. Are you familiar with www.revostock.com ? I think you could sell some of your footage there if you wanted to.

Thanks!

60i. I steadfastly hold to the notion that we should be using MORE fps not less. Although I have been grudgingly playing with 24 because I need more light input for what I'm working on now.

Ya really think they'd buy footage from an HV20?

And I found it played a bit jumpy too - but I was using any old PowerBook G4.

Keep it up. We consider 20 wagons a long train here.

I kept trying to count the coal wagons, but I got to about 30 twice and you cut!!

Some very nice shots - I particularly like the one at exactly 10 mins in where the train runs along the bottom of the screen. I am not sure however that we should be watching you finish a shot, point the camera towards the ground and start to return to the car (5' 55"), or polish the lens because it's wet (9' 08"). Now this may be either because I'm jealous that you are younger and more handsome than me or because your footage would benefit from just a teeny bit more editing - you decide.

Sorry, but even I think that an entire train of the same thing is too much. There were probably about 60 cars. And even then, they need to split the train in two in the Kenai mountains.

I liked the 'return to car' shot when I was editing. Now, I think I agree with you. I still like the 'wipe the lens' to bring a little more 'flavor of the day' (read--nasty). I also like it because it is unexpected.

And its funny, I tried the same trick you mentioned at 10 minutes earlier at 6' and, neither one is perfect, I liked the first one better.

Thanks for your comments and I'd like to thank everyone for watching!

Looking for input on my newest music video

Hey all, I believe this is one of the very few posts I have put up on this site. Well I have a music video that I really pushed myself on. It is by no means perfect. As a matter of fact I had tons of glitches with Final Cut Studio 2 because I borrowed it from a friend, and couldn't update it. OMG the bugs! I finally purchaed it and hope the next project will be better. Also this is the first time working with Final Cut Studio 2, and on a mac, I was a PC guy. So I had plenty of hurdles to over come to get this far.

But I'd really like to hear some feed back, even feedback of things you didn't like.

Trust me when I say this is not perfect. Even my part of the concept for the video is flawed. I messed up the storyline in the second verse, which really messes up the flow overall. But again please don't hold yourself back. Some constructive criticism would be really appreciated. Cant trust your family to be that honest...lol.

"V" is for vending machine

Thanks for letting me know I could make you laugh, Linda.

I have always found it a rewarding challenge to try and find the interesting and amusing side to everyday things - and capture it on video.

Japan has so many everyday things that are just begging to be filmed.

If you have time look deeper into my site under "Gallery"..... you will find quite a lot of interesting and sometimes amusing stuff.

Regards,
Douglas
