1. Holi Shit takes a team of freerunners, geared up with a bunch of “toys” which were as great to play with as they are to watch in slow motion and follows their adventures through the abandoned suburbs of Berlin.

    During their three days journey, the freerunners and camera crew got lost more than once on the endless highways outside of Berlin Brandenburg. We also realized that the most interesting abandoned places are not only well concealed, but are well guarded by security and police. Ignoring those signs of warning the next days were packed with thrilling moments of spectacular runs and tricks but also, getting chased by ghost hunters at midnight, and getting arrested by the police while shooting a drone shot with smoke grenades on top of the tallest building in the area. Obviously not a good idea!

    Every big city has one thing in common. After a while it is quite hard to get out of a place filled with so much energy. Chasing those abandoned buildings and feeling the calmness of a place once filled with so much life was truly inspirational.

  2. Introduction to the Quick Change System and EZ-Swap DC motors for Dynamic Perception Stage One and Stage Zero motion control dolly systems. As an example the system allows for a fast transition from low RPM motors for time-lapse shooting to real-time video shooting using faster RPM motors and the AT2 Motion Controller without requiring tools in the field.

    Quick Change System: dynamicperception.com/products/quick-change-system-1-motor-bundle
    EZ-Swap DC Motor Line: dynamicperception.com/products/ez-swap-dc-motor
    AT2 Real-time Motion Controller: dynamicperception.com/products/at2-motion-controller

    This video covers:
    - Installation of the Quick Change System (QCS) on a Stage One dolly (similar process on Stage Zero)
    - Tips on how to thread the dolly system belt
    - How to swap motors once the QCS is installed
    - Motor speed demonstration illustrating different RPM choices and their effects on real-time video footage

    The Quick Change System provides:
    - Easy swaps between motor speeds in the field, no tools required
    - Fast transitions between time-lapse and real-time video shooting
    - Frees the cart for quick in-setup shot framing

    Works as a add on for all Stage Zero and Stage One dolly systems from dynamicperception.com/

  3. What is ETTR? and why do so many people recommend it as an exposure method for the BMCC?

    This video hopes to answer both of those questions.

    If you have any questions about this video or the subject, please ask in the comments box and I will try to respond.

    From requests and my own personal curiosity, I decided to compare ProRes with the recently released RAW firmware from Blackmagic. I was very surprised by how much of a difference there was between the two. The 12-bit RAW looks alot better than some RED footage I've worked with, besides the ugly Moire which shows it's ugly head in this shot.

  5. Within the week of posting, my NYC test run of the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera went north of 3k playbacks, seeming sensible now to complement with a split-screen comparison of the untouched footage straight from the camera, alongside that finished product after color correction/grading. I have no delusions of being a studio auteur, who could justify a braggart director's commentary, but after thinking about the option to write a long, wordy blog post, I figured it's easier and better all-around just to talk over my footage. It's a visual medium anyway, and I'm sort of surprised there aren't more of these. Would love to see yours, too.

    The video streams by default in full 1080p high definition, so if you get jitters, click the HD icon in-frame to reduce your playback resolution. For reference, here's the original seven-minute film: vimeo.com/hpmoon/nyc. As I say at the end of this commentary, please add your comments below, and please share your work as it happens by joining the User Group:
