              Got a new camera and tried it out for the first time at the RenFest. Testing the Panasonic AF100 in overcrank mode. No audio when you're shooting that way. This was shot at 60 framerate on 1080p24 footage. Handheld Nikon 55mm/1.2 and 180mm/2.8. Edited and corrected in FCPX on an 11" Macbook Air (!) which wasn't bad, to tell the truth.

                Cinematography: Drew Money Music: Frederic Chopin - Nocturne In E Flat Major, Op.9 No.2 Camera: Panasonic AF100 Lenses: Vivitar 28-210mm f3.5 zoom & Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 Shot in Cincinnati on a cold wet day I really wanted to dig into my AF100 and play with the overcrank/undercrank setting. I got a bit of cabin fever I suppose with the cold of winter and decided to brave the elements and see what I could get on a dreary wet day. The saving grace was some nice snowfall. All of the timelapses were done in video mode at 1fps with 1/2 shutter. I shot with a pretty flat scene file and graded in Final Cut with Nattress Film Effects - Image Effects with a tweaked custom G Film- Basic effect with a custom slight lens vignette overlay with slight film grain. The sunrise timelapse was sped up 600% in post (from the 1 fps recorded timelapse in camera) and motion blur was applied in Final Cut to give it an even slower shutter feel. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, 1/2 shutter is as slow as the camera can record. Just about everything was shot on the AF100 with a cheap Vivitar 28-210mm lens - Minolta MD mount (I acquired a lot of old Minolta MD lenses form my Dad...this was a newer purchase, but I stuck with the MD mount since I already had a 4/3 to MD adapter), most of the time wide open at f3.5. I have noticed that this lens really seems to hit it's sweet spot irised down a bit at about f5.6, so in shots where there was more depth to play with, I irised down to f5.6. Panning timelapse shots were achieved at 16x and 32x speed setting on a Meade telescope tripod head with a 497 controller. I found that the 16x really gives a nice smooth playback, while the 32x and above gets a bit jerky. The last shot is on the 32x and it's not as smooth as the pan down head-on traffic shot at 16x. The lock down timelapse of the city sunrise was shot with the Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8. generally I don't hate this lens, but it's definitely more "video" looking than my old school 35mm film lenses. Very sharp. I hate the fact that I cannot maintain constant aperture. I use it primarily as an interview lens because I like to zoom in and out occasionally in interviews to change framing for natural cut points, but once I zoom in just a little bit, the iris quickly closes down. It does maintain a fixed focus point through the zoom, and that's why I use it for interviews, but it blurs during the zoom. I imagine it is resetting it's focus as it zooms to maintain a fixed focus distance through the zoom range. I really need a cinema zoom for interviews...I just don't have the cash for one yet. Anyway, enjoy, comment, share, and "Like" it if you like it.

                    I went around sometime ago with my camera and captured these footages of people executing their respective sports. I thought it would be wonderful if their movements be recorded in slow motion along with my camera movements(not a lot though). I haven't had so much luxury in time to edit it religiously as I just uncovered the raw footages while browsing through my cluttered hard drive. This is perhaps a simpler piece of the "movement journals" that are soon to come. Alas, as I have to serve the Singapore army, that time won't be coming too soon. Regardless of that, please do enjoy this humble video. Shot on Canon 60D Manfrotto 561B HDV 50mm f1.8 Canon EF 17-70mm f2.8-4.0 Canon EF

                    • Apology


                      from Mark Mountford / Added

                      A short film about a woman is haunted by her late boyfriend.This was my first attempt at making a dedicated short film and was shot entirely in 1 day. It was entirely inspired by the music of Yann Tiersen and ever since I heard this particular track, I always wanted to pay it a fitting tribute by producing a film that was just as emotive. I highly recommend checking out the rest of his work, either on his website www.yanntiersen.com or find him on iTunes. It was filmed entirely with the Sony NEX FS100 with the e18-200mm lens with the editing and grading done in Premier Pro and After Effects.

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
