Music video shot with DIY adapter
I just finished this music video for a Toronto musician named Thomas. It was shot with an HV30 and a homemade vibrating adapter (made from one of Daniel's GG holders). Edited and colour corrected with Final Cut Pro.
Please feel free to comment.

Those shots where you can see the GG holder, and the scratches on the Focus Screen, are real buzz kills. Other than that it was a decent video...
What were the camera settings at? Did you use a EE-A FocusScreen? I've shot some stuff on the TTC and it's dark as balls.

cool. i did notice the dirt on the cg a couple times. it would have been cooler if the girls on the train got up and helped kick the crap out of the punks. music was good. i assume the main actor was the real vocalist. i would have liked to have seen a little of the whole band.

I shot in shutter priority mode. Wide open shutter with no gain, except for some scenes in the subway which had a lot of gain. 24p for most of the video. I shot at 30p for the scene where he's singing (he sang to a sped up track) then stretched the 30 frames to 24fps. It just helped to smooth out the jarring handheld-while-walking-backwards shot. The slowed down footage at the end was shot at 60i and split deinterlaced for slow motion.
The dirt on the GG (EE-a) is strings of glue from when I built the adapter. It can't be removed, but I wouldn't have shot the video with it if I thought it would detract from the aesthetic. It was all part of the process, so I didn't fret over the imperfections.
Thanks for your comments.

This was damn good
I wasn't to distracted by the grittiness of the dust and the GG, however, that last scene in the house with the sink needed a manual wb set for it.
I REALLY look forward to the next projects, because I thought this was great.

Looks really good. It just makes me want a dof adapter a lot sooner than i will get one. I assume this is a solo artist that records all the instrumentation?
