The History of Television

Post  SonicOrbStudios on Wed Dec 10, 2008 1:50 am

This is on Vimeo and youtube. I did some changes and added that to vimeo which also has better quality overall so that would be the better choice to watch.

Vimeo:

Youtube: (Watch in "HD" mode for best quality)

The video is a school extra credit type deal. I am currently working on one about stress for my PSYC class and I could use a little bump in my grades there.
It's nothing amazing but goes over a little history about how television came to be. I also tried moving the camera around for the first time today and am quite happy with the results. I do have to get some good wide screen digital sets one of these days. The current ones are free and in 4:3 so I had to zoom in on them.
Lastly, I tried some different export settings for youtube's wide screen format and really like how it came out.

A few things Smile

Good: Great summary of the televisual history (wow, televisual is actually a word!) Pretty good chroma keying, as well. Very good audio quality, i noticed that.

Bad: The cuts were a tad awkward. Reading from a piece of paper below tends not to be as visually appealing as reading from a tangible piece of paper, or memorized lines. Add some... and I can't believe I'm using this word... pizzaz.

You got the idea across, but it is odd to see someone look down at some notes every few seconds. Take a few minutes to memorize each line before you say it. Do numerous takes. The more, the better. Try to make it a bit more apparent that you are turning to the side on those cuts.

Thanks for the comments, nice to see another fairly active member here at the forums.

Yea I held too long before turning away to the other cam position. I was not happy with that myself but didn't have time to refilm. As I said, this is my first time trying that "second cam" setup and so it will take some getting used to.
Also due to time I could not memorize some of the lines. I did my best doing quite a few takes and managed to memorize most of the lines and covered up some note reading with B-Roll but due to time and the importance of the project compared to the others I'm working on, I kept it as it currently is.

The keying is fair...my cheap camera never liked chroma keying too much which always gives me that green glow and harsh edge around me. For audio I run an overhead MXL 991 small diaphragm condenser which runs to an audio interface setup of mine. It's not ideal and I am saving up for a shotgun for around $150 but for now this really does a great job with some EQ and noise gate.
