Watching a parachute open in slow motion is like seeing a flower struggle, trying to burst out of its shell, to fly free. Beauty surrounds us, everywhere we look, in the simplest things.
Shot with Panasonic GH2, 14-42mm kit lens, 720P 60fps
Slowed down with Twixtor.
A micro mini document on tandem skydiving videographer/photographer and how he does what he does. Entire footage shot with Panasonic Lumix GH2, 14-42mm kit lens. Color corrected with Colorista. Freefall footage shot in 720p 60fps.
I needed a good reason to test out Panasonic Lumix GH2 720p 60 fps.
We just improvised at the dropzone, just being silly. 00:13 was done with After Effects, matching motion with Mocha.
Nine skydivers who did not get saved at the "End of the World," along with the rest of the world's population on the Rapture Day! :) (5/21/11). Filmed with Panasonic Lumix GH2 and 14-42mm kit lens. Color graded slightly with Colorista II. Ground stuff was shot at 720p then upscaled to 1080p AND zoomed in a bit for Smoothcam filter. It still held up well since GH2 footage is so sharp to start off with!
