    from Colin Mika Added 2,121 39 4

    This is the demo reel for timelapses shot by Colin Mika. Locations range from Los Angeles to London and everywhere in between. Motion control equipment, DSLRs, a bag of gear, and lots of time is all that was needed to create all these shots. My work has been featured on TV shows, in art galleries and on some of the biggest websites around. If you have any questions about specific shoots please email me. Thanks and enjoy!

      In November of 2012, Colin Mika (www.allcutupfilms.com) worked with Evoke Solutions (www.evokesolutions.com) to create a Holiday Christmas Card for McCarthy Tétrault LLP (www.mccarthy.ca). "Around the Globe" contains extended and unseen footage from the McCarthy Tétrault holiday Christmas Card (http://www.mccarthy.ca/greetings/en/card.asp). "Around the Globe" was shot over two weeks in six different cities. These cities include; Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Québec City, Montréal and London, England. "Around the Globe" is the successor to Snow Globe Los Angeles (https://vimeo.com/33881918). It was shot using a custom DSLR rig with Macro and Tilt-Shift style lenses with Bokeh shapes. All the effects were created in camera with no added VFX. We would like to thank Evoke Solutions and McCarthy Tétrault for making this uplifting Christmas themed video possible and we all wish you a happy holidays!

            • HDR Video Samples Using Two Canon 7Ds and 3D Beam Splitter


              from All Cut Up Films Added 3,012 15 3

              These are sample clips for a recent music video shot using an HDR process to create a tonemapped end product. This is a somewhat new process for video and we had to overcome a lot of hurdles. We used a 3D beamsplitter and two Canon 7Ds with matching lenses. Cameras used matching settings with ND filters used in combination with the beam splitter mirror to produce the difference in exposures. Problems we ran into included slight misalignments on the beam splitter, the lack of gen lock on the Canon DSLRs and also figuring out the best way to combine the exposures in post. A few of our shots came out soft, either due to misalignment of the beam splitter or during fast moving sequences which cause slight variations in frames due to the shutters being out of sync. Some of the issues could be fixed in post. After Effects was used to combine and blend the video tracks, which were then color corrected. The final tonemapped look was used to create a somewhat surreal look for the end product, a music video for the band "Who's Your Daddy" to their acapella version of Strawberry Fields Forever.
