Yes I said mkIII!
Actually this was just at 5 fps to show me what it would be like shooting with my new 1ds mkIII which is arriving in two days time. Friend lent me his 1D mkIII to play with while he was abroad so I spend some time machine gunning off the balcony this afternoon and then loading the frames into Premiere.
Firstly there has to be a better program for doing this kind of thing, Premiere doesn't really like dealing with stills and only stills.
I'm looking to achieve a kind of stop action look to video similar to this incredible project and its results http://www.pdnpulse.com/2009/09/cano...sic-video.html
Even at 10fps I couldn't get anything to look as smooth as what they did in that video, I assume there is a whole heck of a lot of magic involved with the post work on that shoot.
The idea though is to transform that 'look' into street work for a combination between incredible stills and the 'feel' of the locations where they were shot, done all with stills.
Can that 'look' be done with video alone if we discount the DOF advantage of stills?
Methinks that I have a long long way to go.
If anyone is interested in this kind of thing and has any suggestions, I'm seriously interested in this project but don't have the education or tools at present to make it a reality. Any help would be appreciated.
