JJJ Unearthed Artist – ILUKA Music Video Released

Iluka’s Music Video -Delores and the Business Man has been released online. Stand-by for the TV release…

Technically: shot on 5dMk3, 5dMk2, 8mm at 18fps, 25fps and in some instances 50 fps (5dMk3) – with layers of effects over the digital originated, the raw transfer of the 8mm  film still  looks the best…

You can also download the song from http://www.triplejunearthed.com/iluka

Also – ILUKAs earlier song – Paper Doll- that Xorigin used in our popular Roamz video – has been nominated for JJJ Hottest 100! Vote for her song Paper Doll on the Triple J website here.

Singapore Shoot

Xorigin were lucky enough to be asked to pitch a glossy promotional video for a long-standing client in Singapore. We shot with a local DOP, gaffer and cast on the Canon C300, and some pickups on the Canon 5d3. With a lot of camera movement in our video (track and a jib-arm) – the C300 did not suffer the rolling shutter or compression artefacts from all the movement we might have expected with a 5d2 or a 5d3. For a review of the C300 see: http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2012/04/canon-c300-review-for-when-your-movie-deserves-better-than-a-dslr/

One pain of course was that the C300 MXF CODEC – actually – not the CODEC – but that my new Retina with Mountain Lion does not have a FCP driver for the Canon C300 yet. Apparently the previous OS had a 1-year lag before the CODEC was available from Canon – not looking forward to that as I am keen to use the C300 again.  Luckily Steve 1st AD/ Continuity/ Editor (yes he was very very busy) is smart and has the last of the solid Mac OS still installed on his laptop – Snow Leopard (as I do on my Desktop and secondary laptop) – so he could transcode all of the footage. The iphone photograph of the outdoor scene does not do the C300 justice – we exposed for the detail of the bright background and pulled out the face detail in post – there was a lot of image information there!
