The Good Stuff

The weather did not cooperate this weekend for me, so I did not get to shoot the time lapse project I had scheduled.

So, with the nasty cold rainy weather, I decided to shoot a nature piece. The location is Ashland State Park in Massachusetts.

This short subject was shot this afternoon in the fading light of the overcast sky. There was a fine mist and water seemed to penetrate my Gore Tex jacket.

I shot with a Nikon 50mm f1.4. This is my fastest prime and quickly becoming my favorite lens. I set the camera to 720 30p HQ HDTV and shot the entire video with over cranking set to 60 frames per second. As always, I had the Letus35 Extreme film lens adapter on the front of my PMW-EX1 camcorder.

I used a plastic bag to protect the camera and I had an umbrella in case it really started to rain. The camera did get a little wet, but keeping the lens free of misty drops was my priority.

I brought a Vinten Vision 3 tripod with carbon fiber legs and my bag of lenses (which I did not use...)

I shot for about an hour until it got too dark and too wet to continue.

Music selection: Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts II track 13

I edited this in Final Cut Pro and color graded with Magic Bullet Looks. I over saturated the video.

TRT: 3 minutes, 8 seconds

    Norway, with its beautiful landscapes, always fascinated me to visit it. And last year I was there, creating this short movie with awesome scenery! Unfortunately I couldn't take much with me but it has the essentials.

    Settling Mascotte is a micro-documentary chronicling the pursuits off a man who's fruitful life left a mark on land that now lies empty of all his traces.
