1. Going from raw GoPro footage (recorded in ProTune mode) to a final video requires a chunk of tweaks to the source footage.

    I figured that as this video required, at times, up to 8 layered filters to make it feel the way it does, I'd provide a before and after comparison video as an academic exercise.

    Unfortunately it still isn't anywhere near what I want to achieve. However, getting closer each video.

    Source was recorded at 2.7K 30fps. Exported at 1080p 30fps.

  2. A group of us headed to Little Cayman for a brief dive invasion. There was sun, storms, diving, drinking, eating and laughter.

    As always I had my GoPro and took various chunks of footage and here are the results.

  3. With such blue themes in the previous video, I figured I'd learn some colour grading.

  4. This is a cut of all the dive footage from Grand Cayman, May 2014.

    There was a mixed group of people all about for Niqui and Paulo's wedding.

    A combination of all of us dived ten different locations: Macabuca, Don Foster's, Eden Rock, Coconut Villas, Lighthouse Reef, Kittiwake, Pedro's Castle (Pedro St. James), Big Tunnels, Kittiwake Reef and Sunset House.

    The music was borrowed from Moby's album Destroyed: The Broken Places, The Violent Bear It Away, Stella Maris

    Hopefully everyone will enjoy the video, especially those who were lucky to be on the dives.

    Recorded on a GoPro 3 Black and edited in FCPX.

  5. Headed to Egypt to dive. Here is some of the footage cut into a short film. Mostly so that I can remember the trip!

    Got some reef, drift and wreck diving: specifically a special guest appearance from the SS Thistlegorm.

    Various divers can be spotted, including Ben, Dani and Karen.
