New clip for review

Hi all,

Here's a recent clip for you to beat me up about. Any feedback welcome:

http://tinyurl.com/y9jez7

H.264 encoder, so you need to have QT7...

Shot with Sony Z1 in Old Montreal near dusk and indoors at the World Trade Centre.

Thanks,
Vito

not bad.. i liked the moving into the picture effect, however I think it was a bit over used.

I pretty much liked it on the whole though.. good job.

Hi Louis. Thanks for the feedback. "The moving into the picture effect" Do you mean when I walk forward with the camera instead of zooming in?

Thanks,
Vito

Hello Vito,
I like you camera work. The color is a little soft for me, but I am sure that you were looking for that look.
How did shoot the moving shots. Did use a steady cam or hand held?

Hi Douglas,

Yeah, in the opening section, I lowered the saturation a bit, which is probably what you are noticing about the colour. The rest is in pretty low light, which doesn't help the colour either.

Other than a few tripod shots indoors, it's all handheld. I find the Z1 has very good image stabilization...

Thanks for checking it out,
Vito

By the way, I love Quebec. The first time I visited Montreal about 20 years ago I went to see the studio of one of my favorite photographers. I can't remember his name but his studio was near an olympic stadium in Montreal. The name Munro comes to mind, but I am not sure.
My favorite place to eat in the world is Old Quebec City in the little restaurant near Le Château Frontenac. I used to drive about 8 hrs from Hartford, Connecticut just to eat french food and enjoy the scenery. Now I moved back to Miami, Florida so it is a little far for me, but I have a few days of after I come back from Margarita Isle in Venezuela.

I suppose my favourite restaurant in Montreal is Restaurant Emile Bertrand near Notre Dame and Montagne. The only place left that makes spruce beer on the premises (a bizarre soda pop made out of pine trees). Great for washing down the steamies (hot dogs) and fries.

Great city...

Out of curiosity, what editing program are you using?

I like the white/black transition, I haven't seen that before.
Maybe I don't know how to use it, who knows???

Regards....

Looks good. I think the piece flows nice and good use of some quick shots. Looks like the B&G had fun with it also....

Hi Marco,

I'm using Avid Xpress Pro.

The transition is just a "dip to white" followed by a "dip to black." It's an effect that is part of the program, but would be easy to do manually using white and black, and keyframing the opacity. Or by "white/black transition" do you mean the flickering? That's just the flicker part of an old film effect that I keyframed from 0 to almost max, followed by the effects I mention above.

Thanks for the feedback to everyone. Always a pleasure to see what people think.

I noticed I need help on my wedding videography terminology. I mean like where you pan or zoom into a shot that is the final "picture" which looks like a similar picture to what the photographer would have had. I do like it when you do that though.

This is what I was asking about, thanks.
