This video shows the method of loading a roll of 120 film into a Mamiya M645 1000S camera.
This movie was shot from a single camera angle using a Canon 7D and a Sigma 30MM lens. The settings were, ISO 1250, a Shutter Speed of 1/50s, and an aperture of 1.6. I transcoded the video to ProRes 422 before manipulating it which made the process much smoother.
This is the first time I use Final Cut Studio to edit a video. I used color for the grading, motion for the opening title and FCP to put it all together. It was my first stab at using the suite and while very confusing I learned a lot from editing this tiny clip.
I think it was in the time of spring 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Liu's lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video I had ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass' voice, and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between one's taste and one's skills. Later in 2012, I decided to do my own filmed version of Ira's interview - using my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.
I made it for myself and for anybody who is in doubt about his/her creative career. I also think that Ira Glass' message isn't only limited to the creative industry. It can be applied to everyone who starts out in a new environment and is willing to improve.
Ira Glass, whom I've never met in real life, but who had such a big influence on my development. Thank you for telling beginners what nobody else does.
