Yet another short video, just messin' around. This time I'd like to the thank the wonderful Courtney H. for putting up with my direction, and making a cloudy day seem promising. ;)
The majority of this is testing the Adobe Warp Stabilizer in CS5.5, particularly in the opening shots. I originally shot these using a Canon 600D, mounted on a shortened tripod while walking. The original footage is quite jerky, which isn't too apparent in the final result. There are a few shots with bad vibration from the warp correction, that sort of make the picture fuzzy. Those I can do without. All in all, don't totally depend on "the poor man's steadicam" to solve all of your shaky problems.
The remaining shots where handheld with a 50mm prime lens.
Check out the artist featured in this video, Tycho, and go listen to some of his other songs. I've begun to use more of his tracks recently, and it really is my new favorite chill, new-age beat to date.
Thank you for watching!
