Canon 550D Bristol Movie
May 4, 2010

Hi.

Well here it is - my first 550D movie attempt: http://www.vimeo.com/11458104

It's a wander through the centre of Bristol shot hand held on a 550D using the 18-55 kit lens and also the Sigma 10-20. It probably breaks most of the rules of good film making, however I did find that panning around with a 10mm lens attached was quite fun

I toyed with adding a soundtrack (mostly to get rid of the wind noise on a couple of clips) but then I would have lost the environmental "music" that was captured, plus the sound of the Ducati at the end, so I have left the original sound. Also decided to stay away from flashy transitions, FX and credits as they could have made it even more amateur looking!

The uncompressed HD footage is a bit nicer (and fully "jerk" free) on my PC, but I suppose Vimeo have to use some compression and I couldn’t really upload the original file as it would be over a gigabyte…

Cheers.
