In The Bunker

Technology really is wonderful. I shot this yesterday in about 15 minutes. Then spent about an hour doing this little edit. All in less than 2 hours. It’s fun to play….

For the more technically minded reader, here’s what I used.
A Nikon D90 w/50mm f1.4 lens – I had the ISO at 1000 and the lens wide open. It totally crushed the DOF and made pulling focus a beatch but I love the look. Even with the rolling shutter issues. I wouldn’t use it for anything serious, but for playing for a couple hours. Awesome. Super fun. Shooting video and pulling focus with an SLR body is tough and definitely not ideal. I love where technology is going right now. There are some cameras in the works out there that I am VERY excited about.

Here it is – Just for fun…

And many many thanks to Trent for the music.

    So are you just using an SLR and clicking a lot? then putting the still frames into the timeline? Or do you have it taking pictures at a constant rate?

    Has a hand crank camera feel to it.

    Dude.. that would be a lot of work… The D90 shoots 720HD, 24P.

    hmm so maybe it’s just the rolling shutter I am seeing. Haha, I like the super DOF, but I really like that weird shaky feel it has, like hand crank I was saying. Or maybe it’s the movement on the DOF that is causing it, it just feels like somehting is off, but in a good way, whatever. Nice work.
