Very cool!
However a better wide angle lens would make it even better... ;-)

I think this emulates the "old home movies" feel more than well enough. It's too easy to get bogged down in the details of trying to perfectly match Super8. If your doing this for a client who is a stickler and specifically wants that look, then I say go ahead and buy a Super8 camera and shoot with that. If this is going to be shown to the general public they will more than accept this look.

As I said
"As something to be projected as if it were Super 8, I think the average theatre goer will accept it. Not many specialists sitting in the audience."

Hi Paul

Please get ion touch with the diving fraternity, PADI, BSAC etc and tell them about your site. If they publisize it yoou will get thousands of divers who are filming immediately available for content.

Cheers
Dave (I am a PADI qualified diver)

Web video

Even in Germany web videos are becomming big for newspapers. I just came back from a 14 day stint covering the primaries in Florida and California shooting for the German weekly "Die Zeit". I thought some of you might be interested in the footage. I wish, the technical quality would be better but they wanted me to shoot DV and the HV20 doesn`t do too well in that area. And the encoding lets much to be desired. But anyhow, have a look and let me know what you think:

Movie Review Show

Hey everybody, I started a movie review show several months ago and it's evolved over that time. We recently finished a new format. Thought I would show it off on the board where I get tons of info from.

TheCritics.tv


I do all the production myself, and the presenters write their own material. Any and all feedback is welcome. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.

We do shoot in HD, so if anyone would like to check out the HD divx version go here: http://www.stage6.com/The-Critics/vi...on-2-Episode-1

Bali Scuba Diving Promo

I've posted a video from our scuba diving in Bali in September 2007 towards the top of my home page. The video is for the dive operator to show silently and looping on a TV on their stand at the London International Dive Show next month.

I would be interested in any comments on the video and whether it downloads/plays smoothly.

Shot with the Sony Z1 in Light and Motion Bluefin housing. Wide shots with their 80 degree port. Most of the macro with Century Optics +3.5 diopter behind flat port. L&M Sunray halogen lights on many shots.

Edited in Sony Vegas Pro 8.0b. The Flash .flv file is 500 kbps video, 128 kbps MP3 audio. I frameserved from Vegas to On2 Flix Pro and did a 2-pass encode and it took over an hour on my quad core! It's hosted on brightcove.com

I'll put a 960x540 version up on Stage6 when I'm happy with it.

Wow - beautiful shots! It looks like if you are also a very experienced diver - the shots are extremely stable.

I think the film would be even better, if you would cut it down to 3 or 4 minutes. It might also be a good idea to change the music at the beginning.

Short "suspense" on XH-A1

This is the first short I ever created on my XH-A1 and edited in Final Cut. I noticed that the colours really washed out and the picture was brightened up after it left compressor. I didn't use any of the colour corrections in Compressor, just compressed to H264 and cropped for 2.35:1.

Any suggestions?

Here's my $.02

It is my belief that audio should be used to reinforce a feeling that the video creates. To fill in the gaps where dialog leaves off or to hint at things to come.

In your clip the only somewhat visually suspenseful thing was the random appearance of "203." So it was up to the music to somehow make the clip suspenseful. But because most of the footage could have been mixed with a dreamy and lighthearted score and worked well, I think though the music tried it just couldn't do everything on its own.

So I spent 3 minutes confused and waiting for something to happen and was completely let down. I think that the clip could have been cut down to a minute without loosing any of the effect. (If anyone feels that an effect was created.)

That being said I think you did very well on the technical aspects of the piece. :)
