Incident on Marmont Ave

On 07, Jul 2012 | No Comments | In Video | By John

So I finally forced myself to watch “Incident on Marmont Ave“.
I tried twice before but the opening just freaked me out too much, a by-product of having a 3 year old daughter I guess.

But, as I’ve been listening to all of the excellent Digital Convergence Podcast episodes (@planetMitch, @chrisfenwick, @dfilmtv) I knew I would have to suck it up and watch it or miss out on at least one episode.

The short film was produced by Mitch Aunger, perhaps better known to DSLR and filmmaking enthusiasts as @planetMitch of the essential Planet5D site and forum. It was directed by Barry Andersson (@mopho_barry) who created a 15 minute movie with more tension in it than two hours of anything Hollywood’s throwing at me. It is a beautifully shot (All on the Canon 5D MarkIII) film and Andersson’s choice of shots are not only visually enticing but also add to or extend the tension, sometimes to an achingly frustrating height. There is one shot in particular on a staircase that may have you screaming at the screen.
Well I don’t want to give it all away. It’s a wonderful movie and I highly recommend giving it a look.
One thing I really enjoy about the AppleTV is the ability to watch Vimeo or YouTube on the TV. Nice way to watch.

Jack Casady Video from The Birchmere

On 12, Mar 2012 | No Comments | In Uncategorized | By John

A video I did for No Treble with Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna bassist Jack Casady.
Shot with the 60D and T3i.
Used the Manfrotto monopod as a tripod and a slider for the bass and hand shots. That thing is absolutely fantastic.
Minimal lighting, an LCD and a reflector.
