I made a music video!!! My first.

Wanted to share my first purpose created music video done for the band Underground 66.

http://www.vimeo.com/1091250

Shot with the XHA1 and using the Letus Extreme/Nikon lenses as well as the WD-H72 wide angle adapter. Everything was shot either on my DIY dolly or on my Glidecam4000/Smoothshooter stabalizer.

No custom presets used. All colour grading was done in post with correctors and Magic Bullet in Vegas Pro 8.

It's a pretty straightforward shoot with no particular storeline content added, although we are discussing that as a possibility. The location is at the "Harb" tavern in Owen Sound and gratefully time for the shoot was donated by the owner. It took about 8 hours from arriving to finishing up the day of shooting. The band really pulled through doing 14 complete takes of the song to capture various angles and shots. It was hot under all the stage lighting and these guys really tried hard to give an energetic performance every time.

I know there are some issues with the video....botched lighting, cotinuity but I'm happy as a pig in #*^$ about the overall piece.

Hope people enjoy the music and the video....

All the best,
James Hooey

Looks very good. My only suggestion is to cut out all the zooms. Nothing says "corporate video" like a zoom--just my jaded opinion. Good looking footage, nice composition. Pretty good web compression too.

Never Quite The Same (2008)

Against the odds, this film actually got finished. It was a long time in the making, partly due to problems early on with one of the original directors leaving, but we got there in the end.

This is the first film I've ever made, and doing it was a massive learning curve. Now it's finished, I know how it could have been done better, but they do say hindsight is an exact science.

Anyway here it is, in case anyone here is interested in seeing it. We made it as a non profit film, and gave copies of the DVD to everyone who was involved. . . . . . . . .

_______________________________________________

Never Quite The Same was filmed over an 18 month period in Hampshire, West Sussex and the Isle of Wight.

* * * * * * * * * * NEVER QUITE THE SAME * * * * * * * * * *


He knew he shouldn't have done it. 1984 was a long time ago, so how could it have been her ? Was he really seeing what he thought he was seeing ? Was he just going mad, or did the sell by date on the wrapper in his pocket prove it was true. There was only one way to find out. It would be a risk, and also a lot of fun if things worked out. And whether they did, or not, things would be quite literally, never the same again.


In 1984, Simon Kelly met someone. Quite an interesting someone. Over the years, the one thing he remembered about her was this. She said she'd be dead before she was 25.

So, over 20 years later when he sees her on a train, he can't understand why she doesn't recognise him. The odd thing is, she doesn't look any older. Phil Harrison agrees that it's more than a little strange. When they find out she committed suicide in 1986, the situation becomes even more difficult to explain. Until they notice the sell by date, and realize what's happened. They set out to find out more, and as they do, a plan is formed. Will it work, and how will they know if it has, or not ?

Some people have said the 1980s never went away.

Simon Kelly just found out they were right . . . . . .

More A1 footage from the edge. This really is in the middle of nowhere west of Monument Valley, Utah. We were on our way to ride the Burr Trail, a former cattle trail on the other side of the Colorado river. Sorry for some shaky footage. I was at full 20x zoom on the A! with a rickety old tripod perched on the side of a cliff with loose rocks. There was no way we were going to do multiple takes!

I've actually never seen bikes riding up/down the Moki! (Would've been cool to see POV shots from the bikes view :) We usually encounter "traffic" comprising of slow trailers, or tourists stopping along the edge to take
pics of the vista.

Did y'all make it out to infamous Muley Point? Stopped at the Goosenecks?

Best,

Flat out fantastic!!!!!! There are a few flaws, but aren't there always?? I loved the cinematography simple but elegant (especially the long shots), the lighting and the acting.

The crowning glory is the story! You had a beginning, middle ,and an end. That is something most short films don't have, which is why " i think" yours stands out above the rest! You also captured the period well.... Great job man great job!!!!!!!

Indiana Jones and the Treasure of the Templars fan-film

I think many of you have already heard about the fan film from these guys.
I don't know the filmmakers, but I have my eye on this fanfilm for a very long time now, and recently I saw that they had the opening of the movie as a teaser on their website. They made a full feature of about 2 hours long if I'm not mistaken (maybe I'll contact one of the filmmakers to chime in in this thread if people are interested) and I noticed how great it was (which I had already noticed in the first trailer they sent around on the internet).

Okay, the acting isn't always superb and sometimes the lightning looks great but at other times it doesn't, but for a fan film it looks very good, and most importantly: they really did a great job of having typical Spielberg-shots and the way of framing an Indiana Jones movie in their fanfilm. This was the first I noticed; how they really seemed to capture the atmosphere perfectly.

I would advice anyone to look at the opening of their movie, it looks very good, and I really like how the begin the movie, very original.
I think I've read once that they made it on a budget of 5000 or 7000 dollars. Considering the look of their project, the ambitiousness of it (a full feature, with stunts and action, but also the Indy-atmosphere and cinematography) I congratulate these guys for having the courage to not only begin with it, but finish it too.

The website:
http://www.treasureofthetemplars.com/site/

Link to the teaser opening:
http://www.veoh.com/videos/v12768359fxNNf9ms

I think this fan film warrants its own thread
I'll be looking forward to see the results.

PS: I think I have noticed this film for the first time on this forum somewhere, but I couldn't find the thread anywhere, so started a new one...

You did a good job of following the bikes. Felt like a pbs. Amazing looking landscape.

Did you go manual focus or auto?

We made it to Goosenecks on a previous trip. Yes, it was an amazing ride.
I was the only one with a camera so we weren't able to get POV shots plus we were in a hurry to make it to the ferry across the Colorado then on to Escalente by nightfall. there was rain to the west so we were in a hurry. I had a long climb just to get to the point where I was shooting and only had a flashlight to signal the other guys.

Everything was shot on manual. Its a real bear to focus in that bright light and keep your balance too!

I'll chime in with the origional thread, http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...t=daniel+riser

Iv spoken to Daniel about getting tickets to the premiere in scotland a while ago but not heard from him since, i also worked with two of the actors that were in the film on my own projects and i still keep in contact with them so i could drop them a line and ask if they've heard anything

Would love to see it myself

Andy
