Video/Film

Let me help you create a film. Demo reel comprised of clips from most of the videos I have made available online as well as a few in my collection. Filmed with Sony A6000, Canon 60D and Canon 5D Mark II with camera enhancements from Magic Lantern and some portions in Magic Lantern RAW video. Original clips edited in DaVinci Resolve and Final Cut Pro X.

 

Postcard From San Francisco. Scenes from a recent visit to San Francisco, California in July, 2014. Footage shot with the Canon 5D Mark II using H.264 native codec and MLV RAW with the Magic Lantern (www.magiclantern.fm) enhancements to most Canon EOS DLSRs. Some scenes were shot using the 3X crop mode feature in Magic Lantern. Lenses used were the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 and Canon 70-200mm f4L.

RAW files were converted to DNG using MLVMystic, then imported and graded in DaVinci Resolve Lite 11 (which is excellent and free, by the way, from BlackMagic Design (http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve), and then final edit in Final Cut Pro X.

The members of the Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School Band from Orange, Texas (of which I am a member as well) during the tenure of band director Richard Keyton (1968-1976) gather annually to reunite, share stories, and celebrate the impact that he has had on their lives.

One of my first videos, and my first documentary, I decided to shoot this on the spur of the moment while I was on the 6 hour drive to the event. I shot it with a Canon 60D and Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 lens in mostly very low light and at first using only the camera’s built-in mic and then using an expensive lavalier type mic placed on the table in front of the interviewees. First versions of this documentary were edited in iMovie but this latest was edited with Final Cut Pro X.

This version is an update from June 21, 2014. Running time approx. 9 minutes.
