Here’s the latest little promo ditty for a client.
Be good to know your thoughts please!? Comment below (when you open this post in it’s own page).
Nice promo. Love the editing choices and camera movements.
About audio, I would like to listen a bit of the original ambient sounds recorded in camera, as for the applauses and the last kick…
Well done Jonathan!
I agree. But the soundtrack was of generators, air pumps and general crowd babble. And with the slow motion on the AF101, it doesn’t record sound. I didn’t want to take the viewer too much ‘into’ the edit. I feel that you have to either take the viewer all the way into the atmosphere or leave them as an observer. Aesthetics I guess.
Thanks for taking the time to look at it though!
yes not bad though you can turn the sound a bit but looks good
Lovely work as always Mr Richards. Punchy little edit, with a good choice of music to cut to and effective use of the AFs overcranking. It really is a great little camera used in the right hands.
Are you considering getting the new paid firmware update? 1080p 50fps without overcranking. I must say I’m tempted. It would be perfect for a job like this, that was probably fairly run’n'gun, meaning you can record to your hearts content with sound throughout the day and not have to worry about changing settings to get slo-mo material. Just a bit of conforming during the edit.
The only disappointing thing about this edit was the amount of times I had to look at an Arsenal shirt. As a loyal Spurs fan, this was not a pleasant experience!
Thanks for your kind comments!
I hadn’t considered that workflow as an alternative. If I was to shoot in 50p all day long and then reconform the bits I wanted into slow motion, then they would stick out like a sore thumb within a 50p edit. Surely?! They would end up being 25p clips in a 50p sequence with a different aesthetic.
That brings to mind all this hoo haa with Peter Jackson and his Hobbit being in 48p. People who have watched early cuts say that 48p looks like video – ‘Too real’ is the early feedback!
What do you think?
I was thinking the other way round. Conform the majority of the footage to 25fps and put in a 25fps project and then load the 50fps material in and play it at half speed for the slo-mo.
As an Avid editor I prefer transcoding my material for a speedier edit so doing it this way round would make no difference. it would just give me the option of sound in all the clips if I needed it and glassy smooth slo -mo at any time I need it.
