5DmII on SDE
Garry Garza Garry Garza is offline April 22nd, 2009, 10:27 PM

The uniqueness of this same day edit is that the ceremony lasted for only a short span of five minutes so we were a bit anxious if we can accomplish same day edit but we successfully did.

Thanks for watching!

Yeah, I'd definitely say you pulled it off successfully :)

I love your play with focus. This is something that I am currently working on and playing with as well. You had some very creative shots there.

The only thing that was off to me was the sepia-like coloring at the end where they are dancing and then it switches to a brightly colored and normally saturated shot at 3:30. I'm not sure what I didn't like, but it was just a little jarring to me. But a matter of opinion :)

Great job!! Lots of great stuff in there, especially for a SDE!

Looked incredible, nice stable shots great use of focus. Did you pull focus using just the LCD to guide you?

Only downside ceremony audio was not so good.

Other than that well done.

Thanks Guys!

Steve - Were having a hard time patching the audio in the venue.

Stephen - for my color grading, I used FMP of videocopilot.

Great Work. Love 5D magic and Focus pull was beautiful

I do think it could have been a little shorter but then I know SDE is lot of pressure so I can understand

Great Work Again

Hi Garry,

I did already post a reply to this but it's either been deleted or been otherwise sucked into the ether somehow...

I really liked it. Some of the DOF shots you pulled off were very impressive - particularly the groom > ring #1 > ring #2 shot.

Only thing that killed it for me which has already been touched on was the crappy audio during the ceremony.

Cheers,

Matt.

like everyone else has said so far, great work!

your focus pulls really added a sense of movement to the shot to accent the steadicam and dolly movements.

real nice.

Hi Garry

It was a great piece, but for me I thought there was too many pull focus shots, I think I counted maybe 8 or so in the first half of the clip, then again I've not attempted a SDE nor do I expect to do so in the near future, so hats off to you for having a go. I'm sure the couple would have loved it.

Cheers
Darren

The 5DmII is a very useful camera that offers great control over depth of field. One has to be careful to not overuse it though or it can be a bit over the top. If overused, it can make the same impression that overusing the bundled transitions in the new NLE that you just bought makes. It's as though you know you are finished editing when you have used every transition in your new toy.

Overusing effects and transitions, either in camera or in the NLE, distract the viewer. They should be used to help create a mood or tell the story, not wowey - zowey the audience.

Great work, Gary. Especially nice for an SDE. I have a few things to nitpick on but they are pretty minor.

I felt like the DoF shots were overused a bit in the beginning. I also agree that switching back to full-color right at the end was too abrupt. I think it's mostly because you went from sepia to full color within the context of the same scene (the dance).

Other than that, this was very entertaining. Love some of the steadicam work like the shot on the balcony and the shot with the car. I love steadicam shots that have that 'snap' motion. I try those with my Merlin but it's a heck of a lot harder than with a full rig. What are you using?

Travis, I used DIY glidecam with 5DmII for my gliding moves.

Garry,
I looked at your photo montage and it was outstanding! If I may be so bold and ask what program you used to do it. I could do it with Photoshop and my editing app but Lord it would take a lot of work and time. I could never charge enough for it.

Terry - for the 3DM, i used after effects for animation and assembled it in premiere.

Cheers!
