  1. diego and i have just recently been invited to a party from a friend. the motto was: bring your "oldest" friend, the friend you know for the longest time - well, i asked diego to come with me, we have been friends since 1987 -- which makes us two old, well, very old. he came with me and we had a great time - of course.

    to cut a long story short: diego lives next to me. sometimes he has amazing wine party's at his place - and live music. this time his friends from switzerland, incredible jazz musicians, came over and played some music for the gathering. it's one of those "you should have been there" events -- it was magic!

    needles to say, but: it's all improvised. the voice who suggested "fly me to the moon" - that's me.

    also miss kenichi played an awesome set - and, last but not least, anna & malte played some classics for us!

    i recorded this 15 minute, three songs, piece with my new nikon D4. i'm amazed at how good the video quality is right out of the camera. the sound was recorded using my old audio technica at822 stereo mic. since there were only candles, i had to go to ISO 12800 -- and -- it's fu&$ing great how the material looks at that level of ISO. i did no color correction, no denoising and recorded black & white in the camera (monochrome setting). i imported the clip to my avid media composer in a dnxHD120 file and exported as quicktime REF to encode it with main-concept reference to a 1080p mp4. some quality was lost in that procedure, the black levels are still changing more then i would like them to change (RGB vs 601/701) -- but, to be honest: i still can't believe i can record now at ISO 12800 and use the footage!

    enjoy!

    equipment: nikon D4, 24-70mm 2.8 afs nikon lens, audio technica at822 stereo mic, DIY follow focus, a seagull shoulder mount with an manfrotto RC2-700 video head. audio/mic straight into camera. some compression & eqing on the sound.

  2. nikko played for us in our "mitte rosi" event (facebook.com/mitterosi) may 21st - and we had problems with our canon 5D that day, including the magic lantern firmware.... but, luckily, we had the chance to do it all again - only this time mother nature made our life complicated: thunder & lightning and rain almost killed our equipment and, well, us.... check out the end of the take. we all were happy when we went inside, especially because the lightning and thunder were only apart by a mere second... but... i love this take for it's windiness and the rolling thunder sounds...if you have a subwoofer attached to your system you know what i mean...

    we shot on a canon 5D with a canon 16-35mm, f2.8 mounted on a shoulder rig. the sound was recorded with a sennheiser ew-100 G3 wireless lavalier into the camera and two tracks extra on a marantz, a rode NTG-2 on the xlr input. sound was done by alex - thanks to her for the great job! post was done on an avid media composer using magic bullet look suite . more videos on giged.net

  4. we had the pleasure to see janin perform life in our "mitte rosi" event that we held here in berlin last saturday for the second time this spring 2011 - she blew me away: great voice, very strong lyrics. i was trying to figure out a location to shoot moritz and janin - and then i had the idea under the shower: zionskirche, an old church close to where i live - what a great choice! the acoustics of the room were just amazing, the sun came and went and we had a nice audience which, to my surprise, clapped at the end (which i thought you don't do in a church). i guess they also had goosebumps....

    more songs from janin are here: myspace.com/janinjohannsen and as always more vidoes to come on giged.net

    we shot on a canon 5D with a sigma 50mm, f1.4 mounted on a shoulder rig. the sound was recorded with a sennheiser ew-100 G2 wireless lavalier into the camera and two tracks extra on a zoom H4n, a rode NTG-2 on the xlr input. sound was done by alex - thanks to her for the great job! post was done on an avid media composer.

  5. moritz was the first one we "shot" this sunday in the zionskirche here in berlin mitte - i'm so happy lightning struck me under the shower with the idea of shooting in the church: the sound was great - and so are the two songs we recorded. in the end, we couldn't decide which one we liked better, so we put up both songs we recorded with moritz and elke. thanks to elke on the "bratsche"! moritz also played this saturday at our "mitte rosi" event - go check him out if you have the chance to see him.

    more infos and songs are here: myspace.com/moritzkraemer
