  1. HI there, shot the above promo for a documentary we are making. 99.9% done on the JVC LS300. Settings on JVC were J LOG, UHD, Samyang lenses and Atomos Shogun. Editing on Adobe Premiere If you exclude the flimsy build quality we think it does produce a great image for the money. cheers
  2. “Anyone can photograph nature”, a fashion photographer once said. “You just have to wait for the right light!” I disagree. In my opinion, there's more to that than meets the eye. This is the story of Latvian outdoor lifestyle photographer Filips Baumanis. This is me attempting story-driven filmmaking for the first time, as previously I've mostly done landscape and travel content (a seen on www.eaglewoodfilms.com). Shot on the trusty Sony A6500 and Phantom 4 Pro for aerials. Did all the shooting, editing, grading and sound design myself. Comments? Feedback? Fire away!
  3. Hi all, I've been a long-time reader of this blog/forum and wanted to report back on my first paid documentary commission that I just delivered. The project was for a local community outreach project that links in education and culture with Carnival arts (http://www.thenewcarnivalcompany.com/). I spent since last January (on and off) filming 4 schools and community groups as they learned about the theme (70 years of India's independence) and how that learning influenced the making of thier Carnival costumes. The last 3 minutes of the documentary is essentially a music video of the final parade through the town of Ryde, Isle of Wight. I filmed everything with 2 Panasonic GX80 cameras in 4k using primes indoors (mostly native Panasonic lenses with some Voigtlander 17/42.5). For the Carnival itself I used the 12-35 and 35-100 2.8 zooms. Everything was handheld except some of the multicam wides and the interviews. The cameras were great as it was easy to be incognito, film in the historical sites, and the cameras were not intimidating to those I filmed. I shot in standard 0, -5, 0, -5 and only focused on exposure and skintones when colour correcting. The auto WB actually worked very good. The audio was a mix of built-in camera mic, Shure VP83f, Rode SmartLav+/TascamDR10, and Instamics. I also tried to use the http://www.ohrwurmaudio.eu/ binaural microphone to better capture the ambiance of the carnival, but in the end I didn't get around to syncing it or using it. The Instamics (although quite visible in the interviews) were so useful as I could get the kids to put them on themselves and didn't have to worry about touching, and wiring up lavs. Some lessons learned: I had to move really, really fast as it involved kids and the teachers and leaders were busy - it was really run-and-gun. I missed having the audio input as I could have got better ambiance audio without having to sync - syncing is a pain. I wish the GX80 EVF was better as manual focus is hard enough. S-AF on the native lenses was key as I could ensure focus and cut out the hunting. I need to learn more about and practice audio post production and improve my editing. There are some obvious faults (interview eyelines, cluttered backgrounds, slight focus issues, IBIS panning judder, under/overexposure on unmanned b-cam) but overall the client and the organisations that funded the project were very happy with the film. It took me about 70 hours of editing with 15 hours / 700GB (including multicam) of footage.
  4. Sharing my latest work as a freelance climbing/sport filmmaker. Shot entirely on the Panasonic GH4 in 4K and 1080p for slow-motion in 4 days in wonderful Isola d'Elba. Please do have a look even if you don't care much about the subject matter, I'd be very interested in some feedback! The video was cut into 4 parts for convenience, be sure to check for the links to the next episodes in the description.
  5. Hiya Guys! I'm new to this forum and will try to be as clear as possible. :) I'm about to buy new gear for videography pretty soon and have already chosen to go for the GH4, that i will use with these lenses : Voigtlander Nokton MF 35mm f/1.4 (77mm with crop factor), Nikkor 35mm DX (56mm with speedbooster), Nikkor 50mm FX (80mm with sb) and a Nikkor 18-55mm DX (28,8-88mm with sb). I applied a 2,2 crop factor for Voigtlander lenses and 1,6 for the Nikon ones (DX and FX). Is this correct? I keep seeing different crop factors all over the internet. The main use will be documentary and travel videography, so I'm trying to get good and sharp gear easy to travel with as I'll be shooting alone or with only one person. I've read several threads on the eoshd forum, reviews... and still have a few questions concerning ND filters. It seems like I should get a variable ND filter with a 77 or 82mm diameter. The max budget for the filters (one VND or filter system) would be 300/400 US dollars tops. - would you recommend a VND filter rather than a filter-system + ND filters for my use? - my Nokton diameter is 43mm, do you know if a step up ring 43-82 mm or 43-77mm exists? I couldn't find one over the internet. - if you faced this problem, did you find a solution? - would I get vignetting on corners with wide lenses even with the crop factor? - Reviews seem to highlight the Heliopan and Tiffen VND, are there massive pros for one rather than the other? I'm sorry for this long post! One question always seems to lead to another one... Thank you very much to those who will read and answer me :) And a huge thank you to all other posts and people in the forum for the previous topics that helped me. Woooo!
  6. Hey guys, Just wanted to share with you a trailer for the short documentary I've been working on, about the amazing journey that our everyday object travel on in order to get to us. All the footage was shot in China this winter on my 5d mark III with Magic Lantern. I'd love to hear what you think, and if you are interested in supporting this project through it's next phase, (landscapes!) then please also check out the kickstarter below, I hope you enjoy the teaser! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1487414135/made-in-china
  7. Honoring My Father is the story behind Keith Kadoyama attending the Lantern Floating Ceremony every year. The Lantern Floating Ceremony honors our loved ones who have passed away. Keith honors his father Mitsuo Kadoyama, and he tells his story. Thanks to my good friend Keith for doing this. I conceived of the idea when I saw the announcement just 2 days before, and I'm glad he was up for the challenge. I shot all of this myself, so it was a lot of hard work! Shot on a Panasonic GH4, 4K with Panasonic LUMIX 12-35mm X lens and SLR Magic Anamorphot and Tiffen Vari-ND Filter GH4 shot with CinelikeD Contrast -2, Sharpness -5, Noise Reduction -5, Saturation 0, Hue 0 Master Pedestal +15, Highlight -4, Shadow +3, 0-255 F2.8, 1/50 sec, ISO 200 w Vari-ND, ISO 800 without Interview Audio: Rode NTG-2 shotgun mic with Rode Blimp on a Tascam DR-60D Music by Escape Club - "I'll Be There"
  8. Myanmar Goes Democrazy is a documentary about the ostensible change in a country which suffered a military dictatorship for 60 years. This country is Myanmar also known as Burma. In November 2010 the first “democratic elections “ in decades took place. On the 1st of April 2012 reelections became necessary. Currently the country again faces a huge turning point in its history. Scepticism and Euphoria go hand in hand in daily life. We accompany 8 people from different social backgrounds and get to know their daily life and biographies. As there is a reporter who shows us her way to freedom of speech, astudent who was forced to flee from Burma, a monch who was condemned to house detention. In 90 minutes MGD confronts us with further subtile but striking stories about the lifes of people between past and present. Their struggle to fit their repressed biographies into a freedom yet to be gained. Democracy is one step ahead, but but hopes and fears of the people need to be heard.
  9. https://vimeo.com/69522070   This is Stopdown Pictures 4th photo shoot with the Ojeda family. This time I wanted to make a short Behind the scenes video to represent the relationship we are able to build with the Ojeda family and the variation among all the photo shoots.    Also, not to mention, I was dying to film the entire shoot with my new BMCC. I filmed it in raw 2.5k.    My post process is pretty simple. First, I make proxies of my raw clips in DaVinci Resolve. Second, I do my editing in Premiere Pro CS6. Third, once the picture is on lock I bring it back into Resolve where I link my media with the source (raw files). Forth, I grade my footage by using the Artist Color (which I absolutely LOVE). Fifth, I output a Prores HQ file and reimport that into Premiere Pro, where I make my final adjustments.    behind the scenes, bts, photo shoot, family photo shoot, theme park, castle park, riverside, california, summer, bmcc, bmc, blackmagic cinema camera, 2.5k raw, prores hq, davinci resolve, premiere pro cs6, color grading, post process, stopdown pictures, cinematography

 http://www.ulule.com/womanhattan/   PROJECT SUMMARY:
 For 20 years (1993-2013), I got used to go with my girlfriends to New York, and set my love memories on film...
WOMANHATTAN is a film from my point of view as an obsessive director: the obsession of filming my girlfriends in New York, the obsession of magnifying them, the technological obsession of finding the camera shots that best reflected my feelings.
 WOMANHATTAN is a trip back in time, before and after 9/11, where I take us to the heart of New York and its urban landscapes, my thoughts on the passing of time, on love and the possibility of being free one day from my obsessions, and living fully the present and my love life. To discover my world here is the teaser :   https://vimeo.com/31303587     And also on facebook :
 https://www.facebook.com/pages/Womanhattan/308092392578172 I hope you find this project exciting and unique enough to be a part of it. Thank you! Seb Farges   https://vimeo.com/51028337      
  11. https://vimeo.com/63187130   A first-person travelogue of my trip to Miami for the Ultra Music Festival. I flew out there with some friends from Vegas as a last-minute adventure.   The festival basically overtakes Miami for a couple weeks, turning the already lurid city into an EDM-fueled fever dream. My goal was to capture the surreal and seductive experience of navigating it all: glowstick playgrounds by night, bathwater beaches by day, lobster restaurants by streetlight, and the feeling that I might wake up at any moment.   Music by M83 and Helios
  12. I popped out the lens of an old pair of eyeglasses and held it in front of the camera lens shooting wide open at 50mm f/1.4.  Pretty cool effect. Got the idea from Stephan Kot on Vimeo.   https://vimeo.com/61388631
  13. Went out last night and had an amazing time at a place called Bungalow in Santa Monica. Brought my NEX-5n with an old Nikon 50mm f1.4 AIS lens and the Metabones Speed Booster.  It was DARK in that place, but the Speed Booster made me feel invincible.   https://vimeo.com/60971352
  14. http://vimeo.com/60661023 Hey there everyone. I'm new to the forum, but a long time lerker : ) Just wanted to share the latest thing I've completed for a really cool whisky distillery here on Vancouver Island. These small cameras are great tools that set us loose to create meaningful work.
  15. Just for the hell of it, filmed myself running in the Texas countryside and put it to a Johnny Cash song.   http://vimeo.com/56426354
  16. I love making short slice-of-life films.  This camera/lens combo is about as light and small as you're going to get at this aperture and sensor size.  Easy to bring along on nights out without looking like a tool.   Nobody I was filming seemed to even know I was there.  Maybe that's not such a good thing...   https://vimeo.com/59377520

Last year I left my hometown of Ohio to investigate Fracking in Pennsylvania and found Triple Divide, a hydrologic landscape responsible for carrying clean water to millions of Americans.

  18. Shot this little doc promoting my band's upcoming release. Shot on my GH2 with the EOSHD Unified hack, mostly at 6400-12800 ISO. Internet compression kills me, but I still like how it came out. Check it! [media]http://vimeo.com/47487936[/media]
