Re: Tips on Video Making

something worth pointing out...

showmanship.



you dudes taking the time to make videos like this are :

early adopters

motivated

changing the sport



I think you will see over time there will be a very distinct line for vids...
I hope I have some time to give you a vid of the caliber many of you are now exhibiting.

very nice work indeed gentleman.

Re: Tips on Video Making

Great tips, I'm surprised I never saw this thread before.
I rarely bother with flipping videos but I sort of want to try a new one with these lighting tips in mind now.

Re: Tips on Video Making

This is by far the best video I have produced, used almost all the tips in this thread that I could, so I thought I would post it in here.

Re: Tips on Video Making

might be a little harder to get a fully black background with that set up...but it shouldn't be too much trouble.
as ozzie mentioned, the more space you have between you and the background, the easier to have the background show up darker.
also, since it is in a corner, you will have light passing thru the sheet since it doesn't have a solid object like a wall behind it completely.

i would get a couple utility lights and position them at the sides...remeber that you want to be lighting the subject..not the background...so don't point the lights directly at the sheet..point them at you, and yes it will get hot..and you will be blinded for most of your shots.

the ceiling light looks pretty bright as well..i would mess around with 2 lights either from the sides pointing at you..or one on the side and the other on the ground point up into your chest and face area...and either turn down the room lighting or turn it off completely and see if your camera can handle the lighting like that without getting grainy...would provide for some nice dramatic subject lighting and a nice solid background

Re: Tips on Video Making

Thank you Vince for bringing up my name, I feel special. ha.
I honestly suck at flipping. The only thing I can really contribute to the balisong community is lighting and photography techniques.

Re: Tips on Video Making

nice precision flipping Nardath...and a good angle as well. It would work well for certain moves and being thrown into the mix of other angles as well..not something you would want to shoot an entire video from.

I think it would particularly useful for moves which spin horizontally...like a chaplin, although you would want to be much closer. or any aerial that travels vertically but has a horizontal spin to it....it would also lend itself well to hacky type moves as well.

Re: Tips on Video Making

Re: Tips on Video Making

The progress many people have made since Vincents posts and tutorials on proper video presentation has been staggering.
I'm really happy to see that this trend has caught on. I think the next step will be that sloppy production will start affecting
the way people perceive entries. While I know it is a flipping forum and that is the focus, I think this will still play a major
role.

Re: Tips on Video Making

This is a video related question so I figured I would post it here rather than create a new thread so here it is: I need a video camera to start recording videos but I'll only be able to get a relatively cheap one. I was looking at either the Flip UltraHD or the Flip MinoHD and was wondering if any of y'all had used these before to record your flipping or had any other suggestions for other sub-100 dollar video cameras?

Re: Tips on Video Making

i notice all of u guys with a bm42 use a backdrop thats black and where a black shirt. it makes the flipping look great. but i have a bm51 that is black coated so everything is black, should i use a white backdrop and white shirt theN? the 51 looks bad in any vids i make.

  • 12:55
    what terrible people!
  • 12:56
    I filmed and put it together last night, its ok and nothing crazy. I just use windows movie maker and I'm not even sure fancy editing is possible on that
  • 12:57
    Its not up cause I'm gonna make my gf watch it and make sure it looks ok. I think if someone that doesn't flip thinks its ok, then it will def be decent for you guys
  • 13:45
    hi
  • 13:53
    hey tech. well im still lookin forward to it anyways. I use movie maker too so I feel your pain lol
  • 13:57

  • 16:46
    it helps them out too they should thank you
  • 16:51
    damn right. and people wonder why anyone but assassins would want a supressor.
  • 21:38
    dang kimino that was off the hizzy. was not expecting that!
  • 23:32
    I second that. Thats some nice flipping, even better than that first vid you put on JD
  • 22 Jul 2014
  • 0:23
    its up! let me know what you guys think, criticism is welcome
  • 10:20

  • 14:34
    poooooo
  • 14:35
    I also cant help but notice kimino borrowed my backhand xfer. I doubt I can beat his... watching yours now, then I got like 1.5hrs to finish mine before work
  • 15:07
    got some good clips in and I even made up my second xfer, but I still think kiminos is better all around
  • 16:17
    uploading mine to youtube now, but I wont have time to copy paste on here. Could someone submit mine for me please? It will be on my channel I already finna be late as is. Thank you so much =)
  • 16:29
    got you
  • 23 Jul 2014
  • 9:08
    thank you kindly
  • 24 Jul 2014
  • 4:11
    finna
  • 9:20
    finna. it means the state of a person/object/etc, as it will go to/perform in some way or another
  • 9:22
    in this case, I was already (going to), be late. which is common dialect but in its essence also improper verbage as you cant "go to" a time (unless you have a time machine).
  • 9:23
    so actually, I already (will) be late, as what I am attempting to convey is my present state of being, that being late. which, for what its worth, I was johny on the spot
  • 9:57
    well that's the most elaborate explanation I've heard of that word so far
  • 9:58
    I'm calling out TDknife on BT
  • 16:23
    i majored in english ;) and good luck man!
  • 18:25
