Music Video all shot with ML RAW - "Danny Boy" (Londonderry Air)
« on: November 03, 2014, 02:00:16 PM »
A bleak industrial landscape sets the scene for a man’s dangerous journey through the meanders of his memories. A modern take on the English ballad Danny Boy, set to a new original jazz arrangement of the traditional Irish air ‘Londonderry Air’.

Nice job.
You wouldn't happen to have a bit more info on the resolutions filmed in?
It's more so that rest of the community on ML forums can have a bit more info on the abilities of the Canon 6D with RAW video. Info about that is very limited.
What resolution were you able to record continuously in and what resolutions were limited to only few seconds of recording?
Any personal observations on camera behavior in different resolutions?

There are a couple of scenes that would be improved with a bit more post production work.
Some of the scenes with only a bride in the shot were bordering to being unnaturally yellowish, you can notice it mainly on here wedding dress, and skin color of here hand.
This happens when whitebalance is set to give a bit warmer tones in the shot, and than you turn up the vibrance and saturation in post production.  The warmt tones get over exaggerated and give unnatural yellowish tones to the skin and white colors. You can use the vibrance and saturation in post processing, but than you have to readjust the whitebalance of the shot, and tone the warmth down, to avoid making skin tones and whites look too yellow.
Moire is also noticeable in some shots on grass and on here wedding dress (I also have 6D, and know that is the camera problem, but you can avoid it or at least minimize it by planing your shots and knowing what can introduce moire in the first place. Try making depth of field a bit more shallow in problem shots, so that areas with problem patterns would be a bit more blurred, and therefore not introduce moire in shot. There are also some workarounds in post production for minimizing the moire effect, even thou I couldn't get any of them to remove it completely.)
Other than that, nice framing, nice sharpness of video, nice locations...
