{something different} New Years Eve // VisualMasterpiece
Michael Padilla Michael Padilla is offline April 15th, 2011, 02:03 PM

This event was unique and we took a different approach on it. Wasn't much for audio/storyline here. Anyway check it out let me know what you think.

Also I used a JVC CRT monitor for color grading for the first time, but it looks totally wrong on my 30" Apple but awesome on the CRT. Let me know you're experience with the colors and if I should recalibrate or ditch the CRT. Its a professional broadcast grade CRT (JVC DTV component-multi) which runs about $3K new (this ones used). Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks

Incredible. I love the opening/closing shot. This is way different than a normal wedding video. I love the song and the editing you did with it. This was amazing.

Awesome. Thanks. I was really scratching my head over this one.
Glad you dig the opening/closing; I was doing my best to keep it in. Honestly I've reworked this thing in post a gazillion times trying to figure out a storyline. ;P

Re: {something different} New Years Eve // VisualMasterpiece

Do you mind if I try some of your shots? I have seen your videos a'plenty on this forum, and have your website bookmarked. I don't know if I can pull off your shots like you do, but I LOVE, love, lOve, the way you make my brain go in to overdrive! That time lapse/tracking shot with the wine glasses in front with blurred background at the beginning and end-uh, uh, uh! TOO freakin' cool!

Re: {something different} New Years Eve // VisualMasterpiece

go for it (i'm not a huge fan of outright copy cats) but practice until you own it, if you know what I mean.

Let me know if you need any help on shot theory or body mechanics etc.

Re: {something different} New Years Eve // VisualMasterpiece

I hear ya on the "copycat" thing...when I'm actually at the wedding, I'll be shocked if I actually get half the shots I have written down as ideas. I know how fast the day can go, even if I do only have a few under my belt.

Yeah mechanics, ya gotta a couple extra thousand bucks ya can give me for a steadicam vest/arm? ; ) Ha! I got the Glidecam HD-2000 and man that thing burns!

Go to the gym :D lol

We actually use the Glidecam 2000 also (old version.. thanks Glidecam ;P haha :) You eventually get used to the burn, feels good, can't live without it, hehe.

I rarely use a vest/arm system anymore, when I do I use the Varizoom MX Steadicam variant; its a very good alternative to the Steadicam stuff if you're looking to save a few bucks. I have mine customized from the manufacture but most of those improvements gets worked into new production models anyway (yeah I'm a test dummy). The new HD sled is SICK!
