Well, that makes me feel a little better. It's still impressive, but I wasn't sure how you could all of those shots WITH wardrobe changes in the same day. Thanks for the info!

Hi Ian,
Well i just want to say that i have watched all your footage and love it.
It inspires me to become better.
Are all the clips on Vimeo shot with the HV20?
What about post production, what's your work flow?

Regards
Simon

I notice when you use fish-eye lens, there are two line on each side of the screen, why is that?

Simon, pls p'mail me :)

Siu Chung Leung, I have to admit..actually there was something wrong with the 2nd HV20 (the one that I shot with fisheye adapter). The broken unit is being repaired :(

Matthew, thanks man!

Ian,

Absolutly fantastic work, it looks like a 35mm commercial shoot for Burberry or Fendi or something.

Outstanding :)

Color is perfect and vivid (great encode too;)

The song is a nice selection and works perfect. I must admit, it drove me crazy for 6 hours trying to think of the song. I thought it was something out of Romeo and Juliet soundtrack but I finally found it...

two thumbs up ;)

W.O.W!

Amazing trailer. Very artistic.

Great directing of talents(clients). Like everyone else, totally love the DOF. Colors are vivid yet very subtle. Not jumping out of the screen. I think the excellent choice of costumes and locations also helped achieving this.

Love the last shot of bride running through the tunnel.

Didn't totally like the font used at the end. A more edgy clean-cut font would have been better for such an unconventional piece like this. That's just my opinion.

Keep up the good work Ian.

Man thats some very commercial quality piece. Great to see clips like that produced on a HV20 and 35mm adaptor. Could you pm me the workflow as well and what settings you use on the hv20 to shoot.

Pardon the vignettes, wrong-aligned adapter barrel, dust spec etc etc :) :)
That was simply amazing. The wide angle shots are making me want to get a .3 but I already spent my gear budget for Q2 (but I have a big gig this month that would work perfectly with a fish eye)!

Fabulous pacing, and colorizing (if done in post, very good..... if in camera & lighting.... then fantastic!). Music matched perfectly with the shots.

Did you story board the shoot before hand, or take a spontaneous approach? Scout locations and make a location list, or wander around finding good shots as they happened?

Jason, thanks! That was a Raynox cheap semi fish eye adapter.

It was both, storyboard the shoot and spontaneous. It was also both, make a location list and wander around finding good shots:D
