I filmed a video for OPSU Football last year... why not do another to get some practice with my new Camera?
Let the Rolling Shutter.... Roll?
While my first 7D video (Guymon at Midnight) was mostly setting up the camera on a tripod and hitting record, this video required focus shifts, excessive tripod movement as well as use of my GlideCam Pro HD. I also, for the first time, used the 720/60fps video setting to do some cool speed shifts in post.
For the record: I never want to use a GlideCam again... ever. I was never a fan of it anyway. I am just no good at it.
Software and Equipment Used:
Glidecam Pro 4000 HD
Adobe After Effects
Canon 55.0-250.0 mm
Canon Canon EF 28-90mm F/4-5.6 III
Red Giant Software Magic Bullet Looks
Final Cut Pro Studio 3
Filming football is WAY easier on an XHA1... but the bokeh and image control really makes the effort worth it. Every shot, even shots of nothing really that interesting, came out gorgeous. The 7D made it pretty hard to cut out a lot of the video.
The last shot of this video is one of my favorites. I saw it coming.... but said, "Screw it. I can take a hit."
