I used to love making films for school and it's been a really long time since I'm film anything for myself. I've had the 5d2 for a week now and this was my first shoot with the camera. I made a short film as well as a mini photo shoot. Comments are welcomed.

thanks everyone... i have access to HD video stuff at my work so i can borrow some dolly, tripods and mics. i do want to make some type of steadycam to help me with some handheld shots. this was shot really quickly and with a 10 dollar tripod.

Looks very good indeed. You achieved your stated goal of demonstrating the capabilities of the camera.

It even had a little story. Which is refreshing to see. :)

(See, I CAN say nice things!). :p

Nicely done. I think it would be good if you had slacks on. Its weird that shes dressed to the hilt and you are in jeans. my 2 cents.

Great job!:shock: Nice song selection too.
The photo is spectacular, and while there is a lot more noise at ISO2000 than on my 1D3, it's a very nice fine grain.

haha i thought the same thing hehe :) not that i mind - i dont know if people really appreciate the time it takes to setup and make a short like this let alone edit it... even if it was a quickie its still hours of time both getting the shots and editing :)

would you please please share your workflow with us... ?? as in what software, rough steps, what conversion (h.264 or what?) output file size...

sorry to be fussy - alot of people are in the same boat and i have limited skills in the HD department.. although im on PC so thats the first limiting factor from what i can tell ...

Cheers and well done - thanks for sharing with us

The rought steps that I went thru....

The camera shoots at 1080p h.264.. I used MPEG Streamclip on the mac to convert it to another 1080 format (XDCAM) so that Final Cut Pro could edit it smoothly. My final output was 720p h.264 so I had room to digitally pan the video. Editing was pretty straight forward since that's what I do at my day job. Let me know if you guys have other questions.
