I headed over to Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz, CA on 10/31/10 to film some of the people and things happening on Halloween. Since it's 720p be sure to turn scaling off if watching fullscreen on your 1080p monitor.

Filmed on a Lumix GH1 in 720/60p ("C" hack settings.)

Lumix G. 20mm f/1.7 Asph.
Nikkor-S 50mm f/1.4

ISO 800

Mostly 1/125th shutter

There are some low light artifacts I could've avoided by shooting 1080/24p with a 1/30th or 1/60th shutter (two and one stop more light respectively) but I made the choice to shoot 1/125th for a better slow motion look.

Whole video was shot handheld with me using my Delkin Devices Fat Gecko car mount as a makeshift chest stabilizer.

Edited in Final Cut Pro. 60p conformed to 23.976 in Cinema Tools. Color graded (contrast, warmth, vignetting) in Magic Bullet looks.
