1. Video Montage: Urban Tranquility - Abu Dhabi, UAE (Canon EOS 7D)


    from mungkey Added

    Hi guys, this is my first personal video project. I'm a Filipino from Cagayan de Oro City, currently working in Abu dhabi. First time with video shooting and pretty lucky its with the Canon EOS 7D. I never had a video camera of my own before until now. I'm still trying to learn this thing thru good ol' self-learning and getting inspiration from a lot of people all over the internet. But oh well, there is a first time for everything I guess. Please don't be too harsh on the critiques! hehe. All shots done in abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Using up 2 separate mornings and one cold afternoon for video timelapse. I also tried to shoot when there was nobody around, like early morning or when everybody else is working and in the office. Even tho I have a lot of things in mind, I was not able to really stay long out there and shoot. I have a very busy schedule and very little free time. All shots using Canon EOS 7D. LENSES Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8 L USM Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D (I just wish I had at least a fluid head, a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 coz 24mm on 7D is not very wide; because of 1.6x crop factor on Canon, and if somebody would let me borrow a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM for a few days, that would be great! -oOo-Shameless plug-oOo-) Editing was in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. Very n00b Color grading done in Adobe After Effects CS4, preparation of EOS 7D Videos using MPEG Streamclip for windows. System used was an average laptop called HP Pavilion DV6. It has intel Core 2 Duo P800 2.53GHz but still very slow to render and convert Full HD 1080p. It's "slowness" frustrating. But it still gets the job done, it just needs a little more time tho. Music: Chill Sessions Chill in Arabia: Snow Desert - Speechless Project (TQT Mix) (So! sorry I forgot this one on the video ending credits, shame on me) Special Thanks: Friends and family. Erwin Magbanua (http://www.vimeo.com/wingdezigns) for being my mentor in this Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects thingee. Titz Tizon for being my on-call consultant for all things about Nikon, Canon and beyond. Ratfobya for being my drive and inspiration. Wella Maria Hong for being my trusty assistant. (Sorry for the letterbox on the video. Will upload a larger version later.) Most Colorgrading learned from: VideoCoPilot and GreyscaleGorilla and youtube UPDATE: I have uploaded a new video without a letterbox . Resolution is 1280 x 720 - 24fps - H.264 - mp4 [workflow] The awesome PATRICIO MUñOZ of 7DPro.com helped me in putting up a short Q&A workflow article on the 7D. http://www.7dpro.com/s1/articles/production-notes/194-urban-tranquility

    • BEYOND - Memoirs In A Time Lapse


      from Beno Saradzic Added 529K 1,484 246

      ‘Beyond’ presents poetry in colorful motion and music. In 3 distinct movements, its enchanting tour of Beno's audiovisual craftsmanship lifts you from the electrifying buzz of the present to vistas of near-future tomorrows: Sparks of Inception; The pulse of the Organism; From Here to Beyond. ‘Beyond’ relates the seemingly limitless power of human imagination to create and transform on a scale far beyond our own. It is a tall tale of inspiration, courage, determination, tenacity and perseverance through adversity. Shot at locations throughout Abu Dhabi and Dubai, ‘Beyond’s implicit story is about much more than the success of the UAE. What is unfolding in the UAE is a shining, symbolic example of the towering achievements of mankind as a whole. Showing off the best of 2 years worth of shooting, 'Beyond' doubles as Beno's ‘out-of-the-box’ showreel of client-commissioned time-lapse photography work between 2011 and 2012. The musical score was composed expressly for 'Beyond' by the immensely talented, award winning composer Vladimir Persan. His gift for music seems to have no limits and having heard most of his past work, it can be said with certainty that his score for 'Beyond' is among his finest. It's an incredibly cinematic, rich, multi-layered and complex piece of work. Do yourself a favor; listen only with proper speakers or headphones. You'd be missing out any other way. You can purchase Vlad’s score from Amazon and iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/beyond-suite-single/id860223996 Website: www.vladimirpersan.com Gear employed in the filming of my time lapses: • Canon DSLR cameras • Canon and Nikon lenses • CamBLOCK motion control system • Genie Syrp portable motion control system • Gitzo & Manfrotto tripods • Really Right Stuff ballheads and clamps • LEE and Heliopan filters • Promote Remote Control intervalometer by Promote Systems Software: • LR Timelapse (secret weapon of every self-respecting time lapser) • GB Timelapse • Adobe Lightroom • Adobe Photoshop • Adobe After Effects • Adobe Premiere For location permits and access, help, inspiration and invaluable wisdom, I would like to thank: Fredi Devas, Chadden Hunter, Dan Rees, Ali Zaigham, Majed Taifur, Simon McCarthy, Denise Keller, Mohammed El Habech, Dhruv Bahri, Anas Saleh, Sanjay Tripathi, Wolfgang Wagner, Sebastian Opitz, Sami Eid, Arab Ameerah, Zaineb Al-Hassani, Daniel Cheong, Colby Brown, Elia Locardi, Karim Nafatni, Richard James Bentley, Ben Wiggins, Tom Lowe, Vikram Verma, Sandeep Nair, Jasem Almeraikhi, Riki Butland, Artyom Kamshilin, Stew Mayer, Barak Epstein, Chris Thomson, Ben Ryan, Timur Gafrov, Marco Famà, Subodh Shetty, and of course, Vladimir Persan.

      • Shelter: a look at Manchester's homeless. Full film.


        from Mike Staniforth | Film Added 129K 2,269 174

        **TIP JAR** Please consider using the tip button if you like the film. I will donate 50% of the total tips to a local homeless shelter in Manchester and the rest will go toward the budget for the follow up feature documentary hopefully going into production in 2013. For full write up about the making of this documentary please visit my blog http://mikestaniforthfilm.com/?p=9 Follow me on Twitter https://twitter.com/MikeStaniforth This is my debut documentary starring some unforgettable characters who all have their own personal, and sometimes sad, stories to tell. With homelessness on the rise in the UK and with more people sleeping rough on the streets than ever, I decided to speak to the homeless people of Manchester to see just how bad it is. With the council only providing a 'snap shot' of the true statistics of how bad the situation really is, we go on a journey with some of the people that the council are refusing to acknowledge. ------------------ With thanks to Claude Lee Sadik, without whom this film couldn't have been made, thank you for accompanying me for the strange and wonderful adventures around Manchester at very unsociable hours. Mark Sargison for cleaning up the audio and adding a wonderful soundtrack. John at Deep Elm Records for letting me use the one track I found that fitted this piece perfectly, you are very kind. Music details: MOONLIT SAILOR "Fresh Snow" from their album So Close To Life Lukasz, I doubt he will ever read this, but he made me realise just how lucky I am and to not take anything for granted whilst appreciating everything and everyone in my life. I hope our paths do cross again and under better circumstances. --------------------- All shot on Canon DSLR's using whatever lenses I could get hold of. Canon 7D, 60D and 550D Carl Zeiss 50mm 1.4 Canon 24-70mm L 2.8 Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 Audio Zoom H1 Audio Techina Lav mic Rode VideoMic Pro Support Sachtler ACE tripod Manfrotto Video Monopod Flycam 3000 Glidetrack SD Edited and CC'd in Final Cut X.

They rely so much on government/council funding and this is being cut all the time up and down the country, so it is important more than ever to donate money, food or clothing. Every little helps.

            LATEST UPDATES - 2012 international educational schedule will be constantly updated in the upcoming months (bottom of post). thank you. added boracay, philipines july 2012. http://mayadacademy.com/ // here is what ive always believed should define a wedding film. its very simple actually. the couple, their families+firends, and what they go thru and feel during this once in a lifetime day. and while i was blessed to have shot this film within a magical city in mexico, i feel it is important to perhaps touch on the location and all the little events that go on during the day; but to not get too carried away. to me, the focus and pull of the film should always be driven and to travel alongside the journey with the bride and groom. TECHNICAL TIDBITS all this time // one republic used with permission. thank you www.songfreedom.com - shot with 2 Canon 7ds + 1 Canon 5DmkII (3 cameras in total). - 24p for the 7ds, 30p on the 5d converted progressively to 24p using a 1:1 frame re-map that allows the conversion to be 100% CLEAN with no articulating slows it down to look as though the footage was shot @ 36p. - lenses mainly used were zeiss zf 35, zeiss zf 50 1.4 (now replaced with zeiss zf 20 makro), zeiss makro 100 zf, a few canon 70-200 2.8 IS, while the ultra sharp main ceremony camera was canon 2.8 L prime (awesome lens). i have been already getting emails re zeiss glass, and i would say that for HDSLR cinema, they are the best bang for the buck and provide the best value/dollar. if you're unsure try an entry level zeiss 35 f2.0 and compare to its canon + nikon counterparts, and then you decide. every cinematographer i have talked to in the past 9 months have did this exact thing, and kept the ziess :) . Keep in mind that the zeiss ze zf and zf.2 houses the EXACT same optics as the zeiss compact primes that go for $4000 per lens. - photosession + reception stabilization provided via cinevate atlas 30 + steadicam pilot + 5dmkII + 24 1.4 (now replaced with zeiss zf 21) while ceremony steadicam pilot setup was 5dmkII + 16-35 (now replaced via canon 14L rectilinear). the ceremony was VERY VERY windy as it was near the beach - other stabilzation used was cinevate atlas30 + manfrotto 561 monopods. -audio is all double system, the 25$ fuzzies on the lavalier mics went a long way to save the sound from being unusable from all the wind noise. GOOFS - i went against the rules that i teach and swear by, hence there is a cameo of me in this piece (i didnt want to waste the shot)... let me know if you can point it out! oh one last thing... after all these years, i finally FINALLY got the epic crane processional shot that ive always dreamt of when i first picked up a camera and shot my first wedding. enjoy, and dont forget that it's ok to cry a little when watching this piece. -myw follow me via facebook - film@michaelywong.com twitter.com/michaelywong www.michaelywong.com if you would like to share films; feel free to add me as a contact on vimeo. thank you. 2012 EDUCATIONAL SCHEDULE. ==================== looking forward to meeting many of you in the near future as I will be speaking @: infocus // charleston; south carolina USA // jan 2012 *thank you to my friends, colleagues + students alike for the wonderful reception given to me* www.infocusvideoevent.com exposed down under // sydney; australia // early july 2012 myw returns to Australia for the first time in 2 years. www.exposeddownunder.com mayad academy // boracay; philipines // late july 2012 myw is honoured to share the stage alongside some of Philippines top event/broadcast talent. http://mayadacademy.com/ FULL 2012 educational schedule will be continuously updated throughout the year.
