  1. You can still use warp stabilizer. there is a work around. you can either nest the clip then add warp stabilizer to the nest or make a new sequence an do it the same way. ever so often the new sequence way seems to work better for some reason but usually youd only need to use the nest feature. - Great job with the edit! i agree with all previous notes made by Jordan. Id invest in a decent fluid head tripod and learn how to use it for all long lens if you can since most people cant afford a good servo zoom. as for fisheye with single tricks, try planning out a path for your camera movement. decide how you want the composition to look at the start of the trick and at the end. I've been filming for 15 years and i still practice camera movements in between tries and constantly watch back the last attempts to see if I nailed the movement the way I wanted. as for filming lines, try keeping your wrist stiff and use your whole arm to guid the camera. it helps keep the motion smooth. Keep at it!!!
  2. I know I kind of already made a post like this where i posted the individual parts BUT now i have uploaded the entire video including intro friends and credits! Share around if you would and let me know what you hate. Haha, be gentle.

    LUCY - Montage

    Stoked to see you're actively engaging here! If SP points were still a thing, I'd give you some. haha Anyways, though i appreciate Jordan giving his critique, I don't agree with it 100%. To each his own. I actually really like everything about this! The cool blue color palette made it feel cold, as it was being up in NJ that time of year. I loved all the music choices and I like that you chose a stylistic theme (the slow shutter b-roll) and used it consistently throughout without overdoing it in my opinion. My only real critique would be that your exposures are kind of all over the place. Alot of times over exposed and sometimes under. There was even a moment when you filmed 2 tricks at 1 spot and played them back to back, the lighting didn't look like it had changed too drastically yet 1 was over and the other was under. Keep an eye on that and even if you forget, simply adjusting it in post to try and match the shots would help tremendously. Also, the fisheye filming could use a little work. It's not awful, I'd say you should work on steadiness a little bit and thinking about how you want the shot composed before, and after the trick is landed. for example: 0:45 when he lands the boardslide. That framing doesnt seem thought out. Maybe it was but I kind of doubt it. Otherwise great job! It's awesome that you filmed this 10 minute edit in 6 weeks! Bravo
  4. Good point! Haha
  5. Thank you! As for the VO. The homie who i made the video for (the dude in it) did the VO and it tool a MONTH to get that out of him. I tried to coach him through it even because like you said, it sounded like he was reading a script. He was struglling so hard and i dont understand why. Haha so i kind of had no choice but to use the best takes from the 30 recordings he did. He also wanted MORE “fully flared zooms” and i had to convince him to not make me do it. Lol

    4:3 HD - Montage

    looks great! not a fan of the 60p playback but thats just a pet peeve. hd fisheye cropped 4:3 looks so amazing! that camera is a beast

    Canon GL2 Tips

    still not exactly an answerable question. the quality is what it is. veeeeeeery outdated camera, picture quality is low compared to what is the standard now. audio is pretty awful. only thing i remember is the WB tends to lean toward green so try and compensate by pushing it toward red in the custom preset. I don't recall the verbiage in the menu system but i'm sure you can figure that out. that's about all i got! good luck

    Jades - Montage

    fun edit. i didnt understand the wipe transitions. they didnt seem to exist for any reason if that makes sense.the ramped kickflip on the manny was also pretty random. it was all filmed good.

    Canon GL2 Tips

    geeeeeez. haha, where did you find a GL2? that was my first camera! what kind of tips are you asking for? its a very broad question.
  11. Great Job! most time i see demo montages filmed by bystanders, they arent very good. this one was great! Volcom dudes are sick. was this HPX170?
  12. song was a full bop but footage looked good! did you add a vignette or is that due to a variable ND? i just wish there was more barrel distortion with the fisheye footage. thats pretty much the only thing that scares me from micro 4/3's. good job!
