Here is a quick clip from the North American International Auto Show. Shot with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. It was definitely a learning experience as some of the shots soft on the focus. A high resolution field monitor with Peaking is definitely going to be on my next #bmcc shoot.

Gear for the Auto Show

A colleague of mine was invited to the North American International Auto Show as an “Official Brand Advocate” for Jeep. They offered to pay for airfare, hotel, transportation + some cash for him and a friend. Here is the actual Tweet:

Well, Anton thought hmm.., “Who loves cars, video, photography and social media?" Luckily, I came to mind and away we go.

Kind of digging’ on the new HD studio set-up. iPad with Keynote slide as background - keyed using the ATEM 1M/E Mixer Switcher in real time. It’s not perfect, I wish there was more control, but it sure beats a $70k+ keyer. What do you think? Too noisy or okay for web video?

Final Share with 24TB of RAID 5 storage. Connected to a MacPro via Mini SAS. Shared via 10Gig ethernet fiber to a switch. 10 users can then connect over regular ethernet and achieve multiple streams of ProRes 422. Unbelievable! It really works!

Take a listen to the new RODE Videomic Pro! The audio of my friend Justin is a good 10’ away. Of course it’s super quiet out in nature, however, this example will let you hear the detail picked up by the mic being fed into a Canon 5D Mark II. Notice the sound of the clothing swipes and the footsteps in the crunchy snow. It’s very detailed. I would still recommend a RODE Boom pole and the 10’ VC1 extension cable. The RODE VideoMic will be available at DVeStore on 1/31/201. http://www.dvestore.com/products/RODE-Videomic-Pro.html
