  1. Aloha gang! It's been a while, we've all had our hands full of work, life, Covid-19, wildfires, and all the other 2020 glory that's continually heading our way. I thought I'd take some time to share my most recent production, featuring a true lifestyle story using talent and the property as the setting. One thing about this place is that it's not super 'showy'. We could show only 3 or 4 spaces within the home itself, but the property is another story altogether. It's oceanfront, in an undeveloped area, bordering a wildlife preserve. It's truly an amazing spot to have a home.
  2. Thank you, I find that lingering shots have their place, but really, who wants to look at a relatively boring bathroom sink for more than about 2 seconds? I use a gimbal for all the ground work, but in that other with the flippy sink - to - stove transition, I hand held it to get the 'flip' how I wanted it.
  3. @Av8Chuck Here's another from that complex. The floor plans vary just a bit, but even still, it's becoming tricky to find a way to individualize the videos from unit to unit.
  4. Exactly. People just seem to want canned out of the box greatness from a camera, forgetting that video is really no different from still photography, in the sense that there is no perfect out of the box image. It takes knowledge and work no matter the camera. Now, with that said, it's true, 10-bit is much more forgiving to those who spray n pray without much thought to a histogram. Thanks, and yes, I've done a handful of properties in this place. Because it's vacation rental property, it's been mostly empty for the quarantine period, and still is today, so lots of media upda
  5. I know there's a LOT of knock on the Sony Alpha cams these days, for not having jumped into the 10-bit recording world. But I'll tell ya', 8-bit video is NOT as hopeless as most might have us believe. This piece has a lot of fun aerial work in it, from both the M2P and the M2Z. Ground footage was captured on an A7R3, using S-log2. Enjoy!
  6. Short & Sweet...I've been offering 30 sec aerial teaser vids for vacant properties, and it seems they're a hit. I charge 'em $500 for the video, toss in a couple ground shots if needed, and done.
  7. Aloha Arnaud, Very nice to have you in the group! I checked out both of your websites, very nice. I'll be watching for @Av8Chuck's questions and your replies, as I too am intrigued by your biz model. Beautiful footage on your real estate video teaser, btw. I rather enjoyed that production!
  8. Yes, often times that's where our layover is from Maui!
  9. Ok, been sitting on this one for a little while, just busy working and whatnot. Now that things are a bit slower, I figured it's time to share. This one is listed @ $25M, reduced from $28M. Crazy to think that their little price reduction is still more money than the cost of most homes on Maui! Aerial work was done using M2P. Here's the catch...I normally shoot D-log, but when I connected the VR goggles for this mission (so the wife could 'ride along'), it reset everything to base settings, so I forgot to switch back to D-log! Nice to know that standard footage cleans up well. lo
  10. I'm not aware of this, but pretty much anything to do with CA doesn't surprise me. lol
  11. Haha, you got me!! I'm planning on spending all of November in TN again, if you wanna connect?!
  12. For this one, I used a Zeiss 16-35 ƒ4, all mounted to a Zhiyun Crane Plus gimbal. For the night time/low light scenes in these videos, I switch to the G-Master 16-35 ƒ2.8 to help with ISO control. I prefer the little Zeiss for other times because it's so much lighter & smaller, & allows the camera to mount a little more forward of the rear gimbal motor. Makes the monitor easier to see.
  13. Some fun drone work here, but not a ton. Can't fly over 100ft in this area, so can't really even clear the buildings, but plenty enough footage to do the trick. Aerials were shot on Mavic 2 Zoom. I have a Pro camera that I swap out now and then, but chose the zoom cam for this job to stay plenty far enough off the beach and away from people. I've been buzzed on the sand before, it's not pleasant. Ground cam is a Sony a7iii. Enjoy!
