May Weddings

Yesterday, I would say was one of the smoothest Weddings I have filmed. It is a great testament to how well organised the bride and groom, Thao and John, planned their day. We were running a bit late in the morning, but as the day went by, things started to catch up and even in the reception, things were running ahead of schedule :-)

There were many romantic and funny moments of the day and there were so ...Read more

Canon 3D

With Avatar making all the waves in 3D, how can Canon let Panasonic be the only one with a 3D camera.

Now you can shoot like James Cameron!

In their line of professional grade DSLRs, Canon has just announced the Canon 3D. Which… shoots in 3D HD. Full specs haven’t been given out yet, but from the looks of it, it should be 1.5x wider than the 5D/7D.

It’s a pity that it’s a dual lens sy...Read more

Extreme Shooting

To really push a shoot to the extreme, try not eating or drinking for 24 hours and then film an event at the beach. Make sure that the event is running 30 mins late and you have to stand in the hot sand for that whole time.

Zappa zappa zappa!

Good thing I sat down before I had to shoot, or else ...Read more

SilverKottage Tip: Converting Quicktime mov files to WMV

A couple of days ago, a client of mine asked me to make a Microsoft Powerpoint presentation for them that would play videos that I have edited.

Steve Jobs does not use this… but everyone else does.

Using a Mac, my workflow was edit in Final Cut Pro and out put as the project’s setting. Then recode it to H.264 in MPEG Streamclip for playing.
