With the constant work put towards Pixel Motion Films in the last year, I have neglected my own personal blog quite a bit. Going forward into 2015 I really hope to be able to find the time and energy to keep things on here updated and fresh. The goal here is to really give anyone reading this a personal insight into all of the projects that I work on as well as a running journal that I can reflect on in the future.
Current update #1:
Working for Coast Capital Savings.
We've been tackling a lot of projects for Coast in the last while. Everything from fun little viral videos to full on reality TV style pieces. We always have fun working with Coast and their marketing team. We're currently working on an internal project for them that we're hoping will have public distribution so we can share it with everyone. It's a really awesome project that's pushed us in trying out different shooting styles that we haven't done much of before.
Current update #2:
Not really the most newest of news, but we have switched over from canon to sony in the last 6 months. I've been a 5D MKII user since the beginning and have loved almost everything about it. But of course, new technology brings awesome new features that just can't be ignored. Sony has come a long way in the market place with bringing cameras that really do have the most value in the market place in terms of pricing and specs. For our first jump into sony space, we chose to use the sony a7s. A work horse of a mirror-less camera, it features a full frame lower megapixel sensor (great for high ISO), high frame rates, a beautiful codec and optional 4k external recording. This camera for the price range (approx. $2500 for the body) is a steal for what it can do! I love that we haven't even begun to push the camera to it's limits and yet I'm always amazed at what it can do. Canon in my opinion, has really failed it's fan base in the DSLR video market. They've neglected to put a product out there that competes with sony, panasonic or even black magic. Yes, we're talking about different types of cameras here that aren't all DSLRs, but most of them are all within the same price range and same level of specs. Canon needs to focus on an affordable 4k option for it's users that isn't compressed to shit and that gives video shooters more options than what they currently offer. I for one, have no interest in shooting with Canon DSLRs any longer. It seems odd that the a7s can compete with canon's C series cameras to a certain extent yet it's only a fraction of the cost! Next stop, Atomos Shogun!!
