Absolutely stunning. I think i've watched it 3 times now back to back. I even feel more youthful and refreshed after watching it.

You are a talented man!

What stabilizer did you use? How much time did it take you to edit all the videos? just a single 35mm for all the shots?

Thank you very much @allmyr and @ngemu for your kind words! It's the first time I get such comments and I'm really happy to hear so :)

What stabilizer did you use? How much time did it take you to edit all the videos? just a single 35mm for all the shots?

  • All shots were filmed with my bare hands (no gimbal nor glidecam) and stabilized in post
  • Some of the clips are about one year old, the grading of each location took about 2-3 hrs each and the whole cut around 72 hrs. Even tough is hard to tell exactly how long each step took since there's been much back and forth in the process of grading and cutting due to trial and error
  • And finally yes, just a single 35mm lens has been used for all the shots! ;) (apart from the old DV-clips of course)

Watched it a few times more, really like the edit! What music is it?

Good job on the handheld stabilisation. Did you go by inlines or skateboard while filming? Its really looking like a glidecam and didnt spot the post "warp stabilizer" or similar.

Great edit!

  • Sigma 35 Art = best lens hands down. Fight me

This was really really good. Your shots were incredibly smooth and sharp. I don't know how you got those kinds of shot WITHOUT a gimbal. Your hands are impressive haha.

You just made me realize something. The nicest thing about shooting with Magic Lantern is you can shoot close to a square if you want to, which is great for social media and phones! You can even shoot anamorphic and make it go back to 16:9 if you wanted!

Was your resolution a creative decision or technical decision (continous record @14bit, post-process stabilization, etc)? Either way, it works really well. Great cinematography! Is that Warp stabilizer or another effect?

Thank you very much again guys for your nice comments! I didn't expect that.

Since many questions also refer to the stabilization process, let me say that it took a me few years to get this result from my bare hands. After many stabilizations, u get to understand what the software likes and what it loathes. Of course u can't film everything with that technique, since not everything can be stabilized. But restriction promotes creativity, so I can get along with that compromise :)

What music is it?
It's written in the title of the video...  ;)

Did you go by inlines or skateboard while filming?
I made all of the shots on my inline-skates (apart from the one shot of me where my friend used his skateboard).

The nicest thing about shooting with Magic Lantern is you can shoot close to a square if you want to, which is great for social media and phones!
Independently of social media, that's also what I love about ML, having that total freedom when it comes to aspect ratio. Also being able to shoot narrower than 21:9 is amazing. :P

Was your resolution a creative decision or technical decision ?
Purely creative.

Is that Warp stabilizer or another effect?
Warp.
