And then I used a GoPro to film...a pianist

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Tuesday, August 28, 2012,

The School of Music's concert ad for September is live on YouTube. Check it out. I'm having so much fun producing these clips at the moment. The GoPro went along to the shoot purely for show and tell purposes but I ended up shooting footage with it that actually made it into the final clip! Just goes to show how versatile these little devices really are.

 

I wonder if GoPro would edit it into their demo reel if I sent it to them. Put it in right after the base jumping dude... :)

New promo live on YouTube

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Friday, August 3, 2012,

Title animations seems to be all the rage right now and I had the opportunity to complete a promo clip for a client recently that uses a lot of them. That, and plenty of stock footage clips. 

I've had to deal with a lot of 29.97fps video lately and getting what is essentially NTSC clips to play smoothly inside 25fps (PAL) timelines have proven to be a bit of challenge. There's a number of workflows out there but the one that has worked the best so far uses Avid's Fluidmotion effect to do the...
