My wife and I did a Pacific Coast Highway road trip and I of course brought my camera along. Here are the highlights.

It seems like the cameras are slowly getting out there. It's been an interesting and frustrating ride at times, but it's really only frustrating because this camera is just so damn good! Otherwise I don't think many of us would be hung up about the delay.

My rig was again very minimal for this shoot. I had a small tripod, slider, Blackbird stabilizer, Sigma 8-16mm, Canon 24-70 and 70-200, a handful of SSDs, a coat to hide under to view the LCD, and an umbrella for the rain and to block the occasional sun flare. ;) I used BW ND filters on the Canon glass, and just shot naked on the Sigma. I still need a good filter solution for the Sigma.

I downloaded to a laptop and external drive along the trip, but when I got home one of my last SSDs to download couldn't be recognized by the camera or my computer. I was eventually able to use disk recovery software to retrieve my images, but it was a long and unpleasant process.

I also have found a number of black vertical lines in my footage. They last for just a frame and then are gone. I haven't had time to test it out yet, but I'm hoping it's just from the one SSD that ended up failing. It really wasn't a problem for this shoot, but if it continues it will be a problem. Really hoping/thinking it's the SSD though. I'll see what I can find out.

Also, on the final edit I removed the noise from the footage. Neatvideo worked great and really cleaned up the noise while leaving in the detail, but there was just something missing from the denoised version and I ended up keeping the noise in. It just feels better with it in imo. I did use color NR in my Lightroom Pipeline.

Workflow:
I colored everything in Lightroom and setup my export as a Publish like Stu at Prolost suggested. This is a good workflow, because you can go back and make changes and Lightroom will update just the files you made changes to. The long render time out of Lightroom is less than desirable, but being able to make a change that effects the source image is nice! It won't break your edit or any other work you've done by going back and adjusting color.

Anyways, I'm sure there are a number of things I'm forgetting to share. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks Guys!

Here are a few DNG files to test out. Does anyone have better hosting for BMCuser DNG files?

downloading now, I always look forward to your videos. You really know how to produce good results with the BMCC.

Edit: that was STUNNING. I don't suppose there is any chance you would upload a prores export of it? :-D pretty please with sugar on top???

This is just astonishing; both the images, and your technique. I am so excited about this camera. Thanks for sharing your work.

Of course, I'm about to face the challenge of shooting in New England when it's 10 degrees out... I'll just keep telling myself it's a challenge, and I've got to rise to the occasion.

Brrr.

Out of curiosity, can you share the make and model of the drive that failed?

Thanks Randy! Yeah, it's freezing where I live too! That makes going to the coast even more appealing!

I use Sandisk Extreme 240gb. They've been great except for the one failure of course. Kind of seems like SSDs aren't that reliable in general or maybe I just bought the wrong brand.

Makes me wonder based on your experience with the scary near loss of data that one might consider attaching something like the hyperdeck shuttle to back-up record material through SDI? Of course when shooting RAW in camera and exposing to the right, we would need a feed out that could record to a useable prores. Does the video monitoring allow for this is the question to people with camera in hand?

Hmm... That is a good question. Maybe Frank or someone can give us an answer as I don't have an external monitor or recorder.

I have been seriously considering getting a hyperdeck shuttle as a backup. It's so cool that we have that as an option. That's what makes this camera great imo, is that they've used open standards which truly gives you the options you need.

I'll see what I can do. As a delivery format, isn't H.264 fine? I'm no pro when it comes to codecs so I'm really curious.

Jeff
01-23-2013, 05:10 PM
Awesome work! This could be the best BMC footage put together out there for sure!

I had a few questions:

How does your workflow work? Do you work right off the SSD? have a scratch SSD or just use standard HDs?
What do you do for audio? Did you record on locations?
What song is this? You made it work perfectly.

it depends who you're delivering it too ;-)

Your work here deserves a much less lossy codec :-p



By my calculations, in filmscan2 with cineform (422) it will be around 4-5gb for this video.

I did some tests with my Samurai and it worked quite good.
What comes out of the SDI looks similar to ProRes/DNX in Film mode - pretty gradable.

And yeah. excelent shots Andrew, IMHO some of the best BMC material I saw so far.

01-23-2013, 05:34 PM
Yup. I think as long I'm not really, really confident, regarding the reliability of SSD (and I'm far from it in the moment) I gonna shoot with my Samurai attached, whenever I have something really expensive in front of the camera, just in case - you know.

Thanks Jeff! For this one I worked off a USB 3.0 hard drive. It's not the fastest, but it works better than I would have thought. I used the Ginger HDR tool to bring the DNGs into Lightroom so I could make my first round of selects. I was really surprised how well the DNGs played back in the timeline using that method. Definitely some studder at times, but I wouldn't have thought it would playback at all.

I didn't record on location sound. The few SFX you'll hear were added from free SFX libraries.

Thanks for reminding me. It's Time by Hans Zimmer and I just updated the vimeo description.

Man, it's easy hate on the 5D's 8 bit compressed codec all day long but there is something glorious about the 5Ds full frame look that just can't be touched by smaller sized sensors. Wish the BMC sensor was bigger or that the 5D's codec wasn't such hunk of junk.

Haha.. i hear ya.. the lesser of the two evils is definitely the BMCC but i think i'll still find use for my MK3's especially if the April firmware with clean HDMI out is not complete garbage.

For sure. The Canon mk3 can just go places other cameras can't due to it's build and portability. A camera, two lenses, and five batteries can go a long way off the beaten path.

CaptainHook

I would put up with a lot to take the BMCC off the beaten path to get that image it gives.. small sensor or not (speedbooster could negate it anyway). But i don't want to derail Andrews thread!
I posted that video because of the content and i thought maybe Andrew and others may like to see it if they haven't since the images are pretty cool and similar (regardless of being shot on 5D), not to start up more comparisons to DSLRS!!

For sure. Andrew went off the beaten path in this film. But there are still many uses for Dslr's just as there are many uses for all the tools in a toolshed. I enjoyed the video you posted just as much as I enjoyed Andrews. Thats the great thing going on here, is that we get to go places and experience them with low cost image grabbing solutions that used to cost 10's of thousands of dollars less than a decade ago. BMC's, MK3's, oh geez! I like them all!

01-23-2013, 08:18 PM
First off I'd like to say that I think this short is beautiful, I've watched it three times already, and it's quite lovely. Thank you Andrew for posting and making this.

Now I want to ask questions. Forgive me, I'm not trying to ruffle feathers here, or put anyone's nose out of joint, I'm looking to learn.

Firstly, as beautiful as the footage is ( and it really is ), I noticed something in the segment from 2:25-2:32, that "Line" through the middle of the screen we've seen on some units. Now, Andrew's camera is capable of producing some stunning imagery, he's proven that beyond any doubt, but this anomaly in that segment has me wondering if it is something we should all expect when we (finally) get our BMCC. I wonder if the settings Andrew used for that segment are different from the rest? It is a dark segment, perhaps it's an anomaly of a particular setup. Maybe we could identify what. Maybe we shouldn't worry about it. What do you think?

Lastly, and this is the one which might ruffle feathers, I'm not looking to criticise and I don't want to bring any negative attention to such a beautiful piece, but I simply don't know the answer, and I would value the opinions of the members here, so I ask...

The Music.

The track used here was a piece by Hans Zimmer, it's beautiful, fits perfectly, I really like it, it's a big part of this piece. What is the deal with licensing this music?

I see a lot of videos published online with music in them from high profile musicians, even current chart tunes, and I wonder "Did they license that or get permission to use it?". My gut feeling is no, and that I am not allowed to do such things in my own videos, and then I wonder, does YouTube/Vimeo have some deal with the record companies? I remember reading about that once somewhere, YouTube paying royalties to record companies for music used in videos on their site. Any truth to this?

I am new at this, I have never posted a video online, so I just do not know the answer and finding out isn't so easy as people don't tend to be forthcoming about this subject, it's a bit taboo. Help me out here.

David

I'm not commenting on Andrew's piece since I have no idea if he licensed it or not but there are a ton of lowlifes who see fit to use other people's hard work with out permission and excuse it by saying it's not for profit etc all while bringing publicity to themselves. Again this is not a comment on Andrew's video since I have no idea how he chooses to operate.

Yikes. There are shots in here that have that "big budget" feel. That extra DR is really working hard in some of those shots. (And working very well I might add.) If an idiot point this camera at a white wall.....it will still be ugly. I must say though....some of the shots in this video reeeeeally show just how exciting this camera is. Great work! ....and HOLY FREAKING MOLY....these are exciting times. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but this the most exciting camera (tool) I have seen in my adult life. Thanks for sharing. :)

You ought to read up on creative commons then. The OP posted to vimeo and there are no ad's on the page and he did mention H. Zimmer in the description. He posted here and there are zero ad banners.

Here's a run down of creative commons:
1. CC-ND (Creative Commons non-derivative)
When this "ND" clause is used, you can not use it on your video, because syncing audio and video is prohibited. This clause is the most restrictive of all, and it happens to govern a lot of the CC albums. It basically just allows for free personal viewing/listening and nothing else (unless you get permission from the copyright holder).

2. CC-NC (Creative Commons non-commercial) ****Where I find Andrews film protected******
Be very careful about this clause. Even if you are not charging money for your video, if you upload that video on a site that has advertisement in it (even if that's your own site that happens to have some ads, or YouTube, or Vimeo), then that’s commercial use and it's prohibited. However, if you only use it for your own web site that has no ads, or you burned DVDs, including burning for your friends and family, then it's fine. *******The page where andrews work is has no banners or ad's********However Andrew, I would seriously consider removing the tip jar selection***********

3. CC-SA (Creative Commons share-alike) (and ArtLibre)
This clause allows usage of the composition as long as your video is licensed under the same license. This is not a bad deal, but it also means that if you have a great shot that Steven Spielberg wants to use as stock footage, he can't, because his movies won't be licensed under the same license (he will have to get written authorization directly from you to get around the "SA" clause). So this is a "viral" license: anything that uses music licensed as such, will have to use the same "SA" license from then on. Same goes for the popular French "ArtLibre" license (aka "Free Art License"). It might be what you need, or it might be not.

4. CC-BY (Creative Commons attribution)
Lastly, there is the "Attribution" clause. This is the most liberal for all the CC licenses, as it only asks to give credit to the artist, in the credit roll of your video. That's it, there are no other restrictions (apart from using the work for unethical purposes, but what constitutes as "unethical" is open to a public court's interpretation). That's what I personally use for my projects (check the credit rolls on my HD videos). Only problem with this is, from all the CC music available, only about 800+ albums are licensed only under the "BY" clause, so selection is limited. Although it should be enough. I found good music for my videos even at a time when only 45 such albums existed.

If I were Hans Zimmer, personally I would be proud that Andrew used this piece for this clip. Andrew's not profiting off the material and the visuals to the music were wonderful together. I'd remove the tip jar Andrew, just to be on the safer side

Creative commons is a set of licenses for creators and copyright owners to set permissions for their own work. The way you use someone else's work doesn't dictate which license you fall under, the copyright holder must assign those permissions for each of their works. Creative commons is also generally used by "independents" or companies/people making 'music libraries' for use like this, i very much doubt most music produced involving a label or composed for a movie with studios etc involved will have any of the creative commons licenses attached and instead be "all rights reserved" or similar.

Thanks for all the compliments on the footage guys! I know it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I always hope that what being out in those landscapes does for my soul will similarly affect someone who views it later.

CaptainHook, That is an awesome video! And shows just how beautiful HDSLRs can be. Hawaii has long been on the top of my places to visit, but after watching that I want to go NOW!

rawCAM35, thanks for sharing what you found about an external raw recorder. Let's hope they do it!

DJJ, do you see the line anywhere else or just that clip? That was an extremely low light situation. The sun had been down for quite awhile when I shot that with only the faintest glow remaining. So yeah, I was starving the sensor. As far as music usage, no I of course didn't get the rights to use a song from a major motion picture soundtrack to use in my trip video. Am I trying to rip off another artist? No. Not at all. Am I a horrible person for using the track? Probably. :)

iDee, that ray of light only happens during this time of year. It's an amazing thing to witness. If you get the chance to go to Pfeiffer Beach, I'd recommend it!

Trevor, sorry your team lost. Glad this helped you cope! ;)

Dafilman21, I'm glad you watched the original file on a big screen. It's meant to be viewed large! Thanks!

If I missed anyone's question just let me know. It's just hard trying to get caught up on a thread with so much going on!

I downloaded to a laptop and external drive along the trip, but when I got home one of my last SSDs to download couldn't be recognized by the camera or my computer. I was eventually able to use disk recovery software to retrieve my images, but it was a long and unpleasant process.

What software did you use for the recovery?

Definitely worth downloading. Exiting times to be able to shoot motion landscape photography. Or cinema as some may call it.

Motion landscape photography. I like that!


Truly spectacular stuff.

Andrew your shots are just so impressively executed.

I really love the colour's you're getting as well.

Really breathtakingly beautiful stuff.

Thanks John! I really appreciate it!


amazing shots...wow. The DR at 2:11 is crazy. Great Job.

Thanks! I struggled with that shot. The DR is so extreme it's hard to find a good balance. I liked the slider move though so it made the cut.


Stunning...bravo!

Thanks mhood!


Andrew,
congrats for this stunning piece!
The BMC, a good tool in the best hands! Just downloaded the 1080 file to view it at home trough a Optoma 1080 projector.
Amazing work!

Joaquin

Thanks! Yes, please do download it and project it. That's how I viewed each cut.

Andrew's Vimeo page: "Trying to bring the Spirit of California's central coast into this film has been difficult. I've tried my best, but pictures just can't do it justice. No camera can perfectly capture the raw power and beauty of the Pacific Ocean or the feeling of standing near the ledge of a high cliff while the sun sets."

I've been there driving the PCH from LA to Carmel and Monterey, you have done it so well it's better than my memory of Big Sur!

it would be amazing to see a couple DNG files if it's possible.
thanks.

Fantastic stuff Andrew, never been to the States but if i ever end up there (maybe to collect an Oscar?) i'll definitely make my way to Big Sur.

We just started playing with our BMC last night, after our set of Samyang Cines arrived. Now all we want to do is get out there and shoot shoot shoot!

I just downloaded the DNG files. I do not own a bmcc, but how did you get the dng's? If you film raw, does it actually takes pictures (dng's) and then you have to layer them yourself to compose a video? Or is it done automatically, but so far these DNG's can be used for stills photography as well no?

Thanks for further info!

Cheers

A few of Andrew's RAW frames were here:

I doubt his entire video is available in RAW. His camera-original RAW files are very valuable!

Very nice shots.. however the color grade is just way to out there for my liking.. its just to over saturated.. feels some colors are just pushed so unnaturaly that they stand out in a bad way.. green leaves are pushed so hard they are looking almost blue on my iMac monitor.. same goes for the water and the orange skylines.. ..I dont know if this is just my monitor or what?
But lovely shots.. some of these shots just make me want to own this camera so bad!

Good job.. how did you manage to get the shoots from the car so smooth?
