            This is a commercial for Red Giant Software's Holomatrix. The commercial was directed by Aharon Rabinowitz and filmed in Australia at Orion Media (http://www.orionmedia.com.au) - the largest green screen studio in the southern hemisphere. Visual Effects and Audio work was then done at Outpost Pictures (http://www.outpostpictures.com). Additional Effects and audio were added by Aharon in the final pass. While Holomatrix is the focus, Outpost used a lot of Red Giant plug-ins to complete the work. The end page lists all Red Giant Software plug-ins used.

                The opening and closing graphic world is part of the TV station's branded graphics package. These pieces were adapted to fit the rest of the animation. The middle of the promotional spot was accomplished in Adobe After Effects. I shot greenscreen footage of the talent and then designed the world around them.

                    These are some very far from perfect special effects that I am currently working on using FCP and some Red Giant software packages.

                    • GF1 Old Delft 16mm Vistascope Anamorphic Adapter: Night Test

                      A quick test of a VERY old 16mm Vistascope anamorphic adapter grafted onto my Panasonic GF1. Sorry for the crappy quality and shakiness of the footage. I didn't have my makeshift steady-cam on me at the time :) The footage was taken in AVCHD mode in extremely low light conditions. The adapter seems to reduce the amount of light by at least a stop or two, so taking shots in these sort of lighting conditions produces pretty poor quality results at best. I really wanted to try and see what sort of lens flare action I would get from this lens, so that was the reasoning behind taking it out at night. :) The adapter has a 1.5X squeese on it, so this footage had it's width scaled by 150% to bring it back to the proper aspect ratio. Unfortunately, with the 20mm pancake lens I have on the GF1, it's still too wide, so it catches some of the edges of the prisms inside the adapter, so you get some double images, and weird vignetting on the edge of frame. In some cases, it looks kinda cool. The footage was graded with Magic Bullet Looks. I'm going to do another test in the day time, hopefully before it gets too damn cold out side. :) Let me know what you think! Some shots of the camera with the adapter can be seen here: http://blog.isotropy.ca/2009/10/delft-16mm-anamorphic-adapter-for-gf1/ Thanks!
