This was shot along Fort Lauderdale beach during a Saturday evening in July 2010. The city put on a special event called "Summer Nights" that featured entertainment and restaurant specials along A1A every Saturday evening during July and August.
I mainly shot this as a low light test of my Canon T2i DSLR using a Canon 50mm 1.8 prime lens. Unfortunately this lens does not have image stabilization and I shot everything handheld so some of the footage is a little shakey. The audio is from the onboard camera mic. The footage was shot at 1080p 24f, manual focus, auto settings. Because I was focusing manually, you'll see a lot of artsy rack shots. I've since got a viewfinder add-on that makes focusing much easier.
I edited it with Premiere Pro CS5 on a PC. Instead of exporting with the Vimeo HD preset I used the HD 720p 24f preset. Not sure if this made a major difference.
