(Video) SHOOTING STORIES ABOUT WHAT I LIVE FOR

Check out this video. It is the final edit of the production for Old School Customs that I talked about in my previous post. The video was produced by Reel Tide, LLC. It was shot on my 5DmkII with a 24-70mm L lens and a GoPro Hero for some POV shots. Even though there are new cameras available, the 5DmkII is still a viable option for low budget, high production value videos. Lighting was kept simple. I used a Kino Flo Diva-Lite 200 and a CL-LED 256 from Cool Lights. I also used the 5D for the actual product shots. They were done on my kitchen table in front of a black backdrop.

I have been spending a lot of time working with Final Cut Pro X, and I've decided to make the transition to that platform. For my needs, it works perfectly. I cut this video with it and did a quick, down and dirty color grade with Magic Bullet Looks.
