Now I've seen everything

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Saturday, July 30, 2016,


I've seen GoPros fitted in weird places at even weirder angles (and even considered a few of my own) but this is...wow. I guess it got some interesting footage of pit girls getting splashed with bubbly though. And where's the harm in that?

I found this on 
www.asphaltandrubber.com. There's also a good series of videos on Valentino Rossi if you're into MotoGP racing.

Extended version of Musikhane now on YouTube

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Tuesday, July 26, 2016,


July has been a busy month and one of the projects I completed was an extended version of the Musikhane community music project (originally produced for the NWUtv Community Engagement series) for the NWU's School of Music. 

We filmed a lot of great footage and interviews that didn't make it into the original NWUtv version due to time constraints. So if you liked that video, you'll enjoy this version that features more interviews with students and learners.

Enjoy.

I smell a rat (no wait...it's just the plastic packaging)

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Tuesday, July 26, 2016,
Yes I know. That is a terrible heading for this blog post. But I couldn't think of a mouse idiom that would work...


Above: my old Logitech Anywhere mouse (back) and new Logitech M705 wireless mouse in front.

A computer mouse is not something you give much thought to nowadays. Most people probably just use whatever came supplied with their computer. I prefer a Wacom tablet for editing and post work but in terms of computer mice I've tried them all: no-name brands, HP mice, Microsoft mice, a Wac...

I have hope for mankind!

It has been a fantastic month for GoPro jet videos. I have discovered yet another movie with...an acceptable soundtrack! 

Yes folks, no Techno. No Dubstep. No shitty titling. Not even a hint of cliched
 Hard Rock. Just awesome visuals with a few well-placed GoPro shots. This seems to have been produced by USAF media people so that might explain it. But seriously though, I liked this and it was well put together. Military jets (and most fast machines) and action cameras go well together.

Video as...

This turned out nicely

Finally, a GoPro jet video with a soundtrack I like!

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Sunday, July 17, 2016,


See, this is the way I like my GoPro jets! Just raw cockpit sound. None of that techno rubbish everybody seems to plaster all over this stuff. Seriously though, I love the visuals in this. Had no idea the pilot had such a high workload flying these beasts.

My fascination with action cameras and fast jets continues...stay turned.

UARM

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Sunday, July 17, 2016,


I've just completed a new mini series (with one or two more clips currently in production) for the Centre for Applied Risk Management (UARM). I love how both parts have turned out! This project is the first I cut on my new system. Also loving the 3D graphics and may I say we really nailed the lighting in a few of those interview shots.



Whatever did we do before we could put prime lenses on the front of our video cameras?



Check out both videos on NWUtv on YouTube

This is serious voodoo...

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Sunday, July 17, 2016,


I remember when I started out in post a few year ago you could hardly colour correct your images properly. Seriously, my first Avid Xpress system only had basic brightness, contrast and hue adjustments in the effect palette.

Today you can FIX the FOCUS on your images! In near realtime. Courtesy of the folks at BorisFX and a very fancy algorithm. The force is strong here...

LEGO Six Bricks

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, July 11, 2016,
I was pleasantly surprised last night to learn that the LEGO Foundation in Denmark is distributing the link to an Optentia video we produced a while ago:


Yes, this was indeed as much fun to produce as it looks!

Give it a Squeeze. A REALLY quick one!

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, July 11, 2016,


I've been using Sorenson Squeeze for as long as I've been cutting video on Avid editors. I still remember a reseller telling me a few years ago that "Squeeze doesn't work well with Avid" and I still shake my head at that. Simply because Squeeze was born to be used with Avid and the latest version just proves that again.

As with all things connected to the Rand/USD rate of exchange Squeeze has become vulgarly expensive so forking out the cash for a new Version 11 licence a few days ago was not ...
