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

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.

  • which ones would you recomend?
  • 20:11
    I'm sorry I know you didn't ask me, but it doesn't really matter a whole lot. I think bigger pivots usually reduce play, but then again so does bushings
  • 15 Aug 2014
  • 2:52
    yeah, and it's all pretty much limited by handle design.
  • 2:54
    whatever fits, if it's from a good source, should do fine.
  • 2:55
    also, i would often order screws and pivots that were too long and cut them to fit. Better than too short.
  • I think I'm going to get those
  • 16 Aug 2014
  • 23:08
    Is this still available I'm new to the site I know they don't last long while up for sale but I have cash glad to meet everyone. Thanks ks for having me
  • 17 Aug 2014
  • 1:47
    is what still available? (the same chat box shows at the bottom of all threads).
  • 5:30
    I do apologies I have been buying up some balis this past weekend and I heard about this great place just for flippers so I had to be here. I apologies for my ignorance. I'm working the forum out
  • 14:21
    no worries boi, to err is human
  • 17:03
    2 more days til my msf class!
  • 18 Aug 2014
  • 1:59
    no prob, ron. Just making sure your question got heard.
  • 10:27
    so does a lot of balisong associated thing go on a lot here. I have been trying to figure the sight out but some things well a lot of things are very old. maybe ill start some threads love to so new people's balis. either way good to be here
  • 10:39
    things are slowed down a little here, but the more people who contribute, the more active this place would be in turn
  • 11:08
    Well I'm here I was trying to post pictures but on this forum I'm not sure how to do it. yes I see the image but I can not upload because I do not see away if there was I was going to start a new thread and I see a lot of comps
  • 11:09
    Are they recent I love doing them if I could figure the site out I would post some videos and start a thread of my collected pieces I'm so addicted to buying balsi
  • 11:10
    We should do a comp and if I could figure out how to put up videos and pictures I was going to start a thread have some balis would like to show and see what everyone else has
  • 11:20
    never posted pics but vids are easy. do you have a yt channel? if so, just upload your video to your channel, then when you want to post the video, select the preset option for "youtube" and paste your link in between"
  • 11:20
    usually you will have to cut out the "s" in "https" but the rest just does it on its own
  • 11:21
    if you wanna post any videos of your knives in general, start a thread in "the knives we flip"
  • 11:21
    if you want to post a video of you flipping, post it in "the art of flipping"
  • 11:22
    if you want to do a challenge/competition, make a new thread in challenges, either calling someone specifically out, or issuing an open challenge.
  • 11:22
    then, in the text box within the actual thread, state the rules of the challenge, number of competetors, etc etc
  • 11:23
    pm me or just use this chatbox here if you have questions about anything
  • 11:29
    Where would I go to upload my channel to what channel in the settings area?
  • 12:17
    you dont need to upload your channel. all you have to do is go to whatever thread you want to upload the video to, select the youtube tab. and then copy the url in between the brackets
  • 14:30
    i checked out your vid, also fixed the link. nice knives d00d =
