Wow, what a process!

August 2, 2009 3 comments

This video was essentially done in a day.  I started early in the morning.  I had a family game night for the kids, then immediately kept at it.  I finished at 3am.  I set it to render in After Effects.  In the morning it wasn’t done.  I stopped it, thinking it messed up.  I started it again.  It took 7 1/2 hours, but when I watched it there was only 24 seconds.  So again I started it to render.  This time it looked like all was good.  It still took about 3 hours, and for a 1:44 video it was a 14gig file!

Here’s the youtube version.  I’ll be writing an article in Christian Video Magazine on Kinetic Typography, and this, my first real experience.  What a process it was!

Stock up on Stock Footage

June 18, 2009 1 comment

Stocks may be down right now, but you can stock up on stock footage. Stock footage is a necessity in the realm of video. You may create your own footage, but every now and then you need a shot that you haven’t actually filmed yourself. Stock footage that you use in your own productions should be royalty-free so that you won’t get into any copyright trouble. It can get pretty pricey! That’s why I stock up on freebies. There are weekly and monthly freebies out on the web; clips that I eventually will get to use in a video production. Let me show you where you can find these and stock up on other ideas as well.

lo-fi sample of new footage from shoal creek

it might look better if you go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQQUlIDfzNo and select “watch in high quality” which for youtube is still not very high quality.

First Shots with DVC30

November 8, 2008 Leave a comment

These are my first real shots with the new (used) Pannasonic DVC30.  Please note that the quality was first compress to WMV, then compressed again by Youtube.  The full-res versions are much better.  I’ve gone ahead and put a “fishxpressions” watermark over it.  This is too much fun.  I’ve got a lot of plans, and slowly getting the equipment to be able to pull it off.  Vote for your favorite of these.  Send me a comment.  I have to submitt three samples to www.revostock.com to see if I’ll be an approved producer for them.
