UWOL #1 "Watch the Sky" by Bob Safay

Thank you for watching and commenting on my short video. It was all shot within 1/2 mile of my house in Atlanta with the Canon XL-2, using 20x and 3x lens. I welcome comments. It was an interesting subject. http://www.uwolchallenge.com/challen...atchthesky.mov Bob

Nice view of the Atlanta sky line. I don't make it into Atlanta very often but I know the storm you taped. Very nicely done I really liked the opening sequence.

I really liked the inspiring footage of skies, and the storm was amazing. As you say, it is good to just slow down and watch the sky. Thanks for the reminder.

Ruth, thanks. If it were not for your post on compression I would still be beating my head against the wall. Bob

Bob,

I really enjoyed watching your submission. Another creative take on our Living Skies and well narrated and set to music. My niece is in Atlanta...makes me want to come down for a visit! Thanks for sharing.

I enjoyed the entire thing. Good use of images and words.

The opening shot looked like it could have used a bit of lens cleaner, though. ;)

Very smoothly done with powerful visuals, music that gently enhanced both the video and the narration.

Editing flowed well and I enjoyed this one. And your voice over narration was exceedingly smooth (looks like I can't use that word enough!)

Hi Bob

Nice job! Like the others, I really liked your narration. Am assuming that was you, is that right? Great voice and very nice sound design. Can you share what kind of mic and edit/software/filter you used for that? I really liked the sparrow shot with the rain too. Nice transition.

How about giving Bob lots of credit in the credits next time. :)

Best wishes~
Bradley

Bradley, thanks for the compliment. Yes, I did the narration. Also the shooting, editing and writing. It was shot almost exclusivly in my yard, no shot more that 1/2 mile from my house in Atlanta. For audio I use a Rode NT1-A mic, a PreSonus "TubePre" preamp and edit on Vegas 6. All shot with my Canon XL-2 w/20x and 3x lens. Some shots were with a polarizing filter. And yes I needed to clean the lens (darn it). Next time I will include more credits. Again, thanks. Bob
