Last weekend a few of my best friends got together in Volkspark Friedrichein Berlin. The result of the wonderful get-together might be the first music video shot using Nokia 808 PureView phone.
We shot this video of Ingrid Wadman and Siri Hemming performing the song Karen ( written by Ingrid Wadman ) with a prototype phone sticked to a gitalele. The second camera used was a handheld GH2 ( Konica 40mm, original firmware ), with a videomic pro from Rode.
I intended to use the audio from the Rode to a GH2, but the mic's connector went off during the shoot so we lost almost half of the audio.
When it already looked I could not edit a material that could be usable, or at least not the whole song, I continued the track with the phones internal recording. To my amazement I found out the difference between the RodeGh2 + videomic pro and Nokia's internal sound recording was minimal ( I could not hear it really ), so I just decided to use the onboard recording, which is what you hear in the video now...
The material was transcoded using 5d2rgb. What stroke me the most was that after the trancoding , the image looks really really good and exported to Full HD prores looks absolutely useful.
