I like the quote but that's about it... I would like to see some action shots if you are going to cut it that fast. High shutter, extreme angles, etc. Also, what really sets a show apart IMHO is custom graphics and music. In this case, I think both the music and graphics are a bit hokie. Try some 3D stuff for graphics (Cool3D is a cheap and easy program) and see if you can hook up with a local musician for some custom sound. Here is a link to a low-budget sports show I direct/shoot that will be going national early next year.

The Mexican American War
Waayyyyy back in January we started shooting this History Channel documentary on the Mexican American war using the Panasonic Varicam...and two of the new HVX-200 cameras. We received the first two cameras on the west coast, and 2 days later were shooting with them.

Back in March a press release about us was circulated. I have been working on it for 9 months (a record for me...longest time on one show) and now it will finally air. The title is THE MEXICAN AMERICAN WAR.

Friday, Sept 29 at 8:00PM ET/PT on The History Channel.

This project mixed Varicam footage and P2 footage from the HVX-200 camera. Was shot 720p 23.98 and delivered 1080p 23.98 on D5. This show was cut with FCP at full DVCPRO HD resolution using 2 G-Raid 500GB drives, an internal 250 SATA drive and a Popsicle Stick Raid.

I color corrected using the 3-way color corrector, did moves on stills with FCP and After Effects and did green screen comps (with the expert help of Patrick Sheffield) with Shake. I output at The DR Group in Los Angeles to D5 and delivered...well, LAST week be the show was kicked back for a few technical issues that we spent the last week fixing and have since returned the tapes to the network.

Set your Tivo. Especially if you are a Neilson family.

The teaser trailer can be found here...not color corrected:

Thats cool Shane. I'm a big history buff and am addicted to that channel. Please post when it will premiere so I can keep an eye out for it. I am curious how this will look in HD as well.

Mike Andrade September 25th, 2006 05:12 PM

That was pretty funny stuff. Reminds me of my old high school. Especially the beatings. We usually had atleast 3 good bouts a day. Good job

Matt Irwin September 25th, 2006 05:26 PM

Congratulations Shane! I remember seeing some of the footage at your LAFCPUG presentation-- looked fantastic.

I'll definitely mark my calender...

Gabriel Yeager September 25th, 2006 05:39 PM

Good job, Michael. I love to see other High school students stuff (I'm in High School).

Keep up the great (and funny) Work!

Just playing around
I was just playing around today and made this short video:


It is 46.4 MB and I know that is large. It is wide screen and full size.

I just downloaded it as a test and it took under 5 minutes sustaining 312 KB per sec.

Let me know what you think.

Michael Chu September 26th, 2006 08:45 PM

what genre of film is this?

Mike Andrade September 26th, 2006 09:41 PM

I like the shot of the lake. What lens did you use for this?


Jesse Redman September 26th, 2006 09:44 PM


I used the standard 20X on my XL2. The lake is Lake Travis. The downtown (obviously) and the hilltop are both San Francisco.
