We uploaded the final version of our Cantine Video, shot with Olympus EM5.2 cameras. Go see the 1080 version on Video. Thanks!

Cheers.


For people interested in Olympus as a film making platform this is an interesting read from a cinematographer in Australia. Samples at the very end of a healthy lengthen article:

Beautiful. When are we going to start seeing indie film projects?

Dave said...

lovely and the music was perfect. I'm on a diet and you made me really hungry!

Nice work!

Edward, Thanks. I have so many projects rumbling around in my brain but I'd love to make a serial of shorts that, altogether make a movie of my novel, The Lisbon Portfolio. That would be a blast.

Dave, Thanks very much, all the good work was done by my partner in crime, James Webb. I did the easy stuff. My new lesson? Work with people who are smarter than you and you'll look smarter too.

Love the final. I couldn't believe how great the footage looks in 1080. 'Specially when you consider it came from a small sensor camera. Well Done.

The final version reminds me of the opening minutes of Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris, where a sequence of clips is accompanied by quaint music. He got the city, you got great food.

You and James and the Cantine must be pleased.

Well paced and gorgeous. Looked surprisingly good at 27 inches.

Visually sumptuous! Great music! (Stephane Grapelli and Django Reinhart, if I am not mistaken.) I am curious if you had considered including ambient noise from the kitchen for the sound, or if that would have made the sound too busy?

Kirk Tuck said...

John, I'm thinking that the EM5.2 is an underrated video camera. The combo of a decent codec with an outrageous image stabilization system trumps a lot of other features....

Craig, We thought about it both ways and that's what James and I thought worked best.

Glad people are enjoying it!

Beautiful! Good thing I already had something for breakfast :-)
I'm sure going to this place when I get to Austin Texas . . .

Makes me hungry!

It's good to see what professionals can do with equipment any of us could buy. It also kind of takes the heat off the thought that, "I need to buy a more expensive high spec camera/lens to make better pictures." It's been said many times before: it's not about th camera.

Did you change something again this afternoon? I went back to see it again and it seemed crisper and brighter.

Perfect. Don't change a thing!
