1. Colin Adamson - Violin Maker


    from Mike Rea Added 534 3 0

    A personal project I started a long while back and it has taken ages to complete but here it is! I love stuff made of wood, especially if its old and I was keen to do some form of 'hand craft' film using my vintage Nikkor AIS prime lenses - The ultimate 'dream look' team! After some research I discovered that one of Europe's best violin makers lived very close to me in Doune. Colin Adamson makes the most incredible violins, in the style of the 17th Century Italian classical period. Everything is hard carved in the traditional way right down to a homemade recipe for the varnishes and glues; its an incredibly meticulous process that was amazing to film. Voilin Performance by Lorna Rough, RSNO Shot on 5D MkII, BMPCC with Nikkor AIS Lenses (28mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4, 50mm f1.2, 85mm f1.4). Graded in FilmConvert. www.michaelrea.co.uk

      • Klezmofobia live på Louisiana


        from Ketil Teisen Added 467 0 0

        This is a live consort film with the danish klezmer band Klezmophobia (www.klezmofobia.com). Live at the museum of modern art Lousiana north of Copenhagen. The band is here in a unique constellation of 11 musicians: Morten Carlsen sax,Jonatan Ahlbom tuba, Erik Axelsson trombone,George Mihalache cymbalon, Ole Reimer trumpet, Bjarke Kolerus clarinet, Mette Smidl violin, Jonatan Aisen drums , Andreas Ugorskij Guitar, Jesper Lund basbalalajka og Channe Nussbaum vocal Filmed, directed and edited by Ketil Teisen. Filmed with Panasonic GH3, Nikkor Ais lenses (20 mm,35 mm, 50 and 85 mm) and Panasonic 12-35 mm. Edited in FCPX. No grading, but some light adjustment. I would have shot the whole film with the much more filmic ais lenses. But as it was a live performance, it was a one trick pony, the Panasonic 12-35 mm was brilliant for its flexibility. I eaven used the auto focus sometimes and it worked ok.

          • Profiles Nex 5n


            from Mikael Jakobsson Added 762 8 9

            Took the time to test some picture profiles on my Nex 5n. The Sunset -3 -3 -3 is by far the best setting. You have to compensate the WB if you not use the manual setting. I also did some low light test with the Sunset -3 -3 -3. Think it looks good. Up to 800 ISO the noise is low. 1600 ISO noise is present, but to my eyes it look "filmic". Also did some shots with contrast which need some latitude of the camera, color corrected it within broadcast legal values in FCPX. Music by Kevin McLeod. I am very happy with the result. No bad for a 600 dollar camera!

            • Subtle Slider Action...


              from [MTS]FILMS Added 28.3K 745 180

              So I'm pretty stoked to have one of these things. I actually hated them for a long time for no apparent reason....maybe because I knew I sucked at using them...but all I needed was a little practice. The thing that got me buying was having the idea that I could shoot a "crane" shot...kinda.....if I tilted the slider onto it's side! And, I'm wrapped with the results. It's such a subtle movement but it adds magic to a shot in a way that the obvious Glidecam can't. It's now a part of my kit and will go everywhere I go. I love this shit!!

              • The Life of Pete Dryden


                from Neumann Films Added 893 17 11

                S*** gets serious when we play Skyrim! Shorts like these are the reason we do what we do. This is how we used to make videos back in the day. Simple, artistic, crazy, and most of all fun. Maybe it was from watching "Tree of Life" recently and wanting to channel my inner "Malick", but we decided to make a random short and this is what came out. Pete did an awesome job, as always, and Marika helped behind the camera. Filmed the whole thing in about 4 hours, Edited and uploaded the same night. Filmed with the Canon 5D Mark ii and the Canon T2i/550D (Slow mo shots).

                      from [MTS]FILMS Added 1,587 7 6

                      I shot this at Upwey train station using the Canon 5D mark II. I will be shooting with a crew for the 72hr Film challenge that will be shown at MIFF on Sunday the 8th. The film will be shot on RED, however, there is talk of possibly using a 5D to shoot some of the scenes and this clip was me testing the 5D in low light. I decided I wanted to test both camera's side by side. The RED camera shoots 4k and the 5DII only 1080p but I have also done some up-scaling tests with this footage and the results are very exciting! See here: cinema5d.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=18353 Before this shoot, I did some ground work and took some portraits of a friend to see what could be achieved lighting wise. Check them out here: mtsfilms.com.au/index2.php#/rgallery/5/ This Sunday I will be shooting with RED in the same location (thanks to Darren Vukasinovic) and I can't wait to compare what I get with the above footage - Same actors, same location. Thanks so much to John Olney, Jon Viehl, Tina, Savanna and Laura (aka Pom Pom) for helping me out and getting involved :)
