  • Cinetics « Wide Open Camera
    applications for using the CineSquid system with some braided tethers for simple easy last minute shots etc I will do a few tests this spring but It looks like it will work fine The CineVise claps are a prototype but after testing them I can t imagine they will change much if at all on the release version The benefit of extending the feet as mounting options instead of using the legs of the Gorilla Pod to wrap around an object you can use the CineVise clamps or CineSquid suction cups and keep all the articulation you need They feature kip levers so tightening them to the Gorilla pod is quick and easy The vise surfaces feature a rubber on all contact points so you will not mar or ruin whatever you are clamping too This is a nice feature and I am glad they did this rather than just notching These also have a bit more than 2 5 of clamping surface to work with so you can mount them to almost anything like a railing countertop 2 4 s etc The Cinetics SkatePlate is a small compact folding micro dolly that has allows you to mount the CineSkate system to it to basically give you a mini tripod and dolly This is great for counter top shots and low angle ground shots if the terrain is applicable Personally I have not found a product like it in the price range Normally a skate type dolly is at least a thousand dollars so this is a great option for anyone who likes to travel light and is on a budget There is indexing marks on the wheel connections that show you which way the wheels need to be aligned to get a rotation left to right and forward to back shots Nice an simple There is also a 1 4 20 mount in the middle of the SkatePlate allowing for the mounting of the Joby ball head or other third party accessories like quick release or cheese plate Top of the CineSkate micro dolly Bottom view showing adjust fold ability options Overall I think the Cinetics system is pretty fantastic for low budget shooting and problem solving You really can t find anything close to it for the money and its a fairly complete system for an unheard of price They have a few different bundles for your needs but I would definitely consider looking at the CineSystem bundle as it gives you the most for your dollar Here is what it contains Cine System is the whole Cinetics package for your camera mounting and dollying needs in one ready to roll kit The system can support cameras up to 5kg 11 lbs and includes CineSkates CineSquid SkatePlate GorillaPod Focus Ballhead X CineSkates are a set of three wheels that quickly attach to a tripod and enable filmmakers to capture fluid moving video footage without lugging heavy gear CineSkates with Focus can support cameras up to 2 3kg 5

  • Masters In Motion 2012 Austin TX « Wide Open Camera
    successful in getting the shot with invigoration He showed up with a 3 ton truck loaded with gear and I don t think I ever saw him sit down for a second It is clear that he believes in his methodology and has basically built a brand around it It is fascinating to watch him work and I can see why people pay a lot of money to go to his workshops Masters In Motion allowed a view into this madness for a fraction of the price and based on the feedback it was worth every penny Next up was Ian Vertovec of Light Iron Ian s presentation was on Color Very fitting as he is one of the best colorists in the business Talk about what you know He knows color Ian has numerous credits as a colorist with some of the standouts being The Social Network The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Timescapes and Hitchcock Tuesday afternoon consisted of the hands on sessions with Tatjana Green doing Set Design Philip Bloom covering The Interview Konrad Czystowski on Maximizing Your Coverage Preston Kanak Eric Kessler covering TimeLapse Shane Hurlbut ASC Storytelling with Light and Composition Joe Simon and Sean Steigemeier on Utilizing Natural Light and Justin Hamilton and myself The Phantom Flex and TS3Cine High speed There were six rotations of 45Minutes each so that everyone who attended was able to experience each workshop without feeling rushed Wednesday Day 3 First up on Wed was Konrad Czystowski on Art Science of Storytelling Konrad covers camera movement and how to use it based on whether or not it drives the story forward The basics of Konrads presentation was that shots were like words in a sentence and sequences are like the paragraphs of a story Use them wisely and if they are not pertinent to the story then loose them Example if a shot looks cool but doesn t have any real benefit to the message then don t bother RUN JUMP KNEEL BEND DANCE FLY FRAME SHOOT FAST SLOW TWIST SHOUT CLICK EDIT CUT CUT CUT SHOW PACK FRESH SOCKS RINSE AND REPEAT This is his motto and after meeting Konrad it is clear why he was voted one of DV Filmmakers top 25 Next up was Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner Ondi Timoner Ondi talked about creating characters engaging the audience and grabbing their attention during the first few minutes of the film and ideally during the opening credits She also talked about her new film Mapplethorpe as well as showed a few clips from her documentary films Did I mention she won the Grand Jury Prize twice Ondi is the only filmmaker to win that category twice in Sundance s history Third up Wed was another presentation that got raving reviews by sound designer Erik Aadahl Erik did the sound design on films I Robot Transformers Kung Fu Panda Tree of Life to name a short few As one of Hollywood s most sought after sound designers

  • GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition and Hang Gliding « Wide Open Camera
    with the iPhone Android app Often when mounting the camera in precarious positions around the glider it can be very difficult to judge what is in frame and what is not Even with an LCD BacPack sometimes getting your head behind the camera is a challenge Using the Hero 2 with the WiFi BacPack alleviated this but it also ruled out using another BacPack such as the battery bacPack Since hang glider pilots often fly for several hours at a time often in the cold if it s a good day and they are able to get high having additional battery life is a big plus The biggest reason hang glider pilots should trade in their Hero 2 and grab a Black Edition is the variety of resolutions and frame rates The ability to shoot full 1080 HD at 60 fps means we can now get smooth slow motion in full HD resolution Or we can shoot in 2 7K at 24 fps The additional picture size shooting 2 7k means extra headroom to adjust framing in post or more importantly allows for software stabilization such as Warp Stabilizer in Adobe After Effects The rundown is this most viewers might not be able to tell Hero 2 footage from Hero 3 footage but the 3 gives shooters far more flexibility when it comes to mounting and especially in post The end result of these additional features encourages creativity and in the end better productions For this hang glider pilot the Hero 3 Black Edition is a must have For those that just want some home video style clips of their flights the Hero 2 will suffice Just don t take the Black Edition out for a spin because you know what they say Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My
