First Post - First "only video" shooting session C&C

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, i'm a newbie here and almost newbie in video, despite i'm reading A LOT about "how to's".

 

As you may understand english is not my main language so, sorry if i write something wrong.

 

As per title of this post, this is my first attempt in shooting video not in a studio but in a controlled environment .

 

I'd like to have your opinion about it, also what i could have done better.

 

I have a photography background ,so can't really going in technicalities nor codecs and whatsoever.

 

Thank you anyway for watching and hope commenting.

 

Here's the video

It was really cool!! I like the whole lighting technique and everything. Haha I apologize. I am also a newbie. In fact, I've only been learning about photography for a few months. My main interest is film but I know that the two go hand in hand in a way. You seem to know how to add a nice touch to a video!

Hi Inazuma, thank you!

 

Yup, same camera with mainly FourThirds lenses. 35-100F2 and 14-35F2. For this video i've used the PanaLeica 25 1.4 wide open and for the intro the ZD50F2 macro. Light was just a DIY led ring light. Always (but obviously not for the static part of the video) handheld.

That 5 Axis ibis is simply stunning.

 

No grading nor color corrections in FCPX.This is SOOC video. As a RAW stills shooter i've mistakenly leaved the camera in AutoWB, didn't notice that when the arms were in to the scene the wb changed :/ my fault.

 

Anyway glad you enjoyed it and thanks for subscribe!

 

I'm planning to do another video in a month but that will be a lot of planning work. Camera moving this time.

 

If you have suggestions on helping me getting better please feel free to let me know!

 

Ciao

Thx Jbells! Glad you liked it!

 

Thx Inazuma, next vid will be shorter. But i struggle to find a song/music that fits the emotional part. Music is my main inspiring component in doing a video, so i start from there and then i "dress" the music with images.

I don't want to cut a song in the middle, but imagination should help in doing that. 

Do you think 2min/2 min and half would be better?

Thank you again!

      First online social media advert for J'adore Models Manchester, shot on the Sony A7SII in SLog3. Used the excellent Zeiss loxia primes, 50mm f2 and 35mm f2.
      Recorded full-frame 4K at 24fps, shutter lower than I would prefer due to room lighting restrictions but decided to roll with it instead of using LEDs to keep a cinematic look, pools of light and dark shadows etc. Looking to shoot more of these throughout the year and would love to know what peoples thoughts were...

      Latest work shot on the Sony A7SII with Zeiss Loxia prime lenses. Online commercial for a british watch brand. The film will be used for website/blog use and also taking 15 second social media cuts for further advertising. Also used the excellent 3DR Solo drone for the opening wide and SLog3 profile for further flex in the grade. Hope you enjoy!

      Our first shoot with the Sony A7S. Shot 1080p60 1/60th shutter with Picture Profile 7 (Slog2), with Color Mode changed to Cinema.
       
      Graded in Premiere Pro CC using color curves and saturation, the same setting applied to all clips. The goal was to see how well the A7S handled skintones under very challenging, changing lighting conditions: low light, multicolor spots, etc. NR was only used on the first clip (very very low light).
       
      Shot handheld using the Sony SEL18-200mm APS-C lens (FS700 kit lens), AUTO ISO, AWB, AF (center spot focus area), IS, manual zoom, built in mics. With this lens and settings, the A7S makes an excellent low-light live/event camera.

      We felt the best way to really learn how to use the GH4 was to shoot a commercial. All the GH4 shots were in 1080p VFR 60fps mode, Natural picture style, Panasonic 12-35 F2.8 lens, gen 1 Fader ND 77mm (+ adapter), and Flycam Nano DSLR steadicam. The pool shots were iPhone 5S 720p 120fps, and underwater shots with GoPro Hero 3 Black.
       
      Edited in Premiere Pro CC with heavy use of the new masking tools. Neat Video was used for denoising.
       
      Really pleased that WMG (Warner Music Group) and youtube worked out a deal to allow their music to be used (along with an ad).

      Editing a fashion show shot on the A7S next (will show a wide variety of skintones in low light- shot event style with 'auto everything'- worked pretty well).

      Now I know it's not a popular camera body  for many valid reasons, and that it may be away from the budget of many casual film-makers, but I've been using the C100 a lot recently, and wondered if anyone had any tips to swap.
       
      I've also been programming some custom picture styles for this and C300 based on highly gradable modern film stocks.
       
      If anyone is interested in such a discussion let's get stuck in!
       
      Let me know how you use it and find it...
