A short I made with footage from a trip I recently took to Illinois to visit my good friend (the smoker).
Let me know what you think!
take a ride with me!!! ... just some raw footage of my elevator in my building..
***NOTE*** THIS FOOTAGE IS H.264 if you are going to remix it i would suggest converting it to PRO RES 422 .. it will save you heart ache :)
This is my first RECord so I thought i would do it contributing to something lovely! I saw jessielove77's photo of the hummingbird and remembered that I had some stock footage of some birds and landscapes from around where I live so here it all is, and in true hitRECord spirit i've used a song from here too.
I was fooling around, trying to make an overlay of moving bars to signify movement/activity and levels. Hope my first attempt can be helpful.
Little rushed but I had fun and I hope so will you remixing it.
Sundance 2010 & meeting so many of you at the Vista was awesome. I hope to have many more years of hitRECording with this great community! <3
You are all so crazy awesome!
A note on martial arts...
I love both film and martial arts to point of obession, I'd love to see more martial arts records, because I think all of the fighting arts are beautiful, spiritual and just badass awesome footage to play with.
The system I train in is Filipino Kali-Silat mostly the Lacoste-Inosanto Kali and Ilustrisimo mix and the Jeet Kune Do philosophy/concepts that Bruce Lee & Inosanto shared. It's like a mash-up remix of martial arts, which reminds me that everything is being re-recorded, re-remixed, all the time everywhere. That's f*ckin' awesome!
A note on software n' equipment!...
I use Final Cut Pro v.7 & I have Adobe's Production Premium CS4 Mainly use Adobe After Effects for animation & effects sometimes use Apple's Motion (both work great). I shoot on a Canon DSLR the T3i with a manfrotto tripod and sometimes a cheap Halo Rig. If I remember to I record the audio seprate on a zoom h2 audio recorder and clean it up in Soundtrack Pro. You don't need all this stuff, ok except for a tripod or really steady hands the rest is all just spontanious creative magic, let it flow out of you like sparkle dust.
