I haven't posted any of my video work on here before, but in fact my full-time job is that of a videographer. It's just that the stuff I shoot isn't all that exciting most of the time. Last week I spent some time with the identical Mathias quadruplets over in Lexington, S.C., and had a blast documenting them.
Then a few days later, a massive snowstorm rolled into the area. I really just wanted to create a video that was akin to a moving postcard. I planned to shoot with my normal camera, the Canon XHA1, but I didn't want to fry it in the blizzard (it was getting iced up and melting snow was seeping into every cranny). I switched to a small pocket video camera, the Kodak Zi8, shooting in 1080p mode and got wonderful results.
I used MPEG Streamclip to convert the Kodak's AVCHD-compressed clips to Apple Prores 422, then assembled in Final Cut Pro. I used a piece of music from the FCP Creative Suite for a nostalgic feeling.
