Hi All,

Now that I have more web-space for the same price I have just put online a Music Video I did 2 years ago, it is almost all Steadicam and it's shot with a DV Steadicam from Tiffen (thanks to the Tiffen distributor in France for the loan) with Sony's PD-150 on it.

So, a studio, a lot of green paint, a boxing guy, five nice dancing ladies and a good Flame artist =

The file is huge so I am sorry if don't have a broadband access but I know that I don't like to watch too small or too compressed videos and I prefer to wait a bit,

Tell me what you think or ask any question.

Thanks,

Kareem La Vaullée.

cool
DV.... nice grade!

i agree about watching good quality video and waiting for it... the problem with quick time is it tries to stream immediately... so for ages u may think your computer has frozen.... let it have a little chill

i got round this by providing a link and having "right click..save target as" but it s only a fix for pc s.

Dear Kareem,

Nice work.

You mentioned about "a lot of green paint", do you mean the video use green screen technology? Was the background texture composed later by two different video? How did you do the lightting? I thought that it is very hard to do lighting by green screen with steadicam.

TIA

Regards
Leigh

Thanks for the nice comments, Thomas, Charles, Leigh and Marc.

Yes Leigh, the Video was shot in an all green painted U-shaped studio set with small black crosses all over the walls and floor for permitting the "Camera Capture" so they can match the Computer Graphics Generated Backgrounds with my Steadicam moves.
I did a series of Commercials with that Technique in Belgium for the National Phone Company (Belgacom), Arri 435, 360° shots, MoCo style moves and they builded the set in Post...
I think I have it on a CD, I will try to Post it here.

I didn't do the Lighting on the Music Video, we had a very good DoP, one of the best in France when it comes to Digital Video

I remember that I came on the set with my old Steadicam Jr as I was not sure the only battery pack I had with the borrowed Steadicam Dv would be enough for the day but surprisingly it lasted more than enough to do all the shots.

Yes Marc, I was a bit busy lately, maybe we can catch on AIM again soon,

Cheers,

K.
