Music video FAME shot with SI-2K Mini

Hey, just finished - you can watch my Fame music video online:

LG Fame Us | Welcome

Showing off SI-2K's high frame rate mode, too! :)

Oh, and I had to blow up a skylight on my roof for special effect. I think it was worth it, although neighbors did not seem happy at the time. I never liked that skylight anyway, you know. (Tip: when blowing stuff up, point your SI-2K cam away from the explosion. This way you are protecting the lens.) ;) i kid, i kid...

Starring Ika, she's a great person and a fantastic dancer and choreographer.

Alex.


I can hear and feel my bones crack just thinking about trying to throw a kick like that. The cityscape shot inspires me to try to get around how to do it again. I only had one good one out of five takes but that was mismanagement on my part.

Blowing stuff up?

SI2K in Western Australia.

Scroll down the page until you see a group of four frame grabs. Frame 4 is Steve Rice staying safe behind a blast barrier which had a lexan sheet to keep the bad stuff off the lens.

Blowing stuff up

Keep in mind that one of the fun parts of the IMS mount is that you can put a used Nikon F lens on there for about $50 used from B&H, run a 30m cable to the camera and do a few takes without worrying too much. It would take a lot to hurt the MINI. If you needed wide angle, you could try C mount. Just stay away from the CCTV lenses. Maybe a Navitar or Fujinon industrial lens as a sacrificial lens would be good.

Very cool video.
Steve

NO! No, no, no!

No-one is touching, let alone hurting my Mini!

:)

OK, I had to let it out.

Now guys, I appreciate the explosions advise but I have to confess that nothing was really blown up in my video. What you see in the video is a post-production visual effect I did myself in After Effects.

I kinda expected sarcastic comments regarding that, but if you thought it was an actual explosion, well, I'm very pleased :) That's what I was shooting for, no pun intended.

Many thanks for your kind words regarding video. The post was murder and I barely made the contest deadline after working virtually 24/7 for a couple days.

BUT SI-2K Mini is fantastic, a pleasure to work with, and I literally almost cried when I saw the result of 150fps footage. (Now of course I want at least 300fps, but hey ;)
