« on: July 16, 2017, 09:03:45 PM »
Here is a music video i shot last week. this is my 1st time filming anything. i used a Canon eos m with 35mm fujian lens. i used a cheap stabilizer....i used magic lantern. i have ZERO camera experience and this is my 1st time ever using a camera other than my phone. i also edited and color graded the video. i used premiere pro...before i bought the camera i did research on finding a cheap camera with good video quality. i heard Canon eos m was the way to go with Magic Lantern. i bought my camera from china for a nice price  without a lens and i also purchased a cctv lens..i learned all the setting for filming through the internet. so after a few weeks of studying the setting i decided to film a no professional. this is my 1st time ever filming and editing. let me know what you think!!

bit rate: 2.5x
Technicolor CineStyle Profile
shot in 1080p 24fps

Very impressive for a first video.

One small note -- when you added the 2.35 matte it cut off the tops of heads, sometimes all of the head. You might consider vertically re-positioning a few shots.

I also have that camera/lens/picture style combination. It is a great setup to get back to the basics.

So what Magic Lantern features did you use? Changed the bit rate? Did you turn on focus peaking?

Nice work!
