I thought I would shoot a little something to try some of my rigs and the like.

Also interesting, to us photographers, I had a little help with the audio mix - have a listen.

my weekend project is trying to figure out how you did each shot, so ¨stolen¨ is a good title :-)

The merging of the cycle and its reflection is delicious.

Thank you. I must admit some fluke.

So the NEX5n is clamped to the van window and I am driving with my left hand and pulling focus with the right hand as the motorbike moves up and down next to the van. Having a feel to move from close focus to near infinity but not quite!

While I could have used a monitor I did not, so could not actually see the shot..

The shot before when the bike comes up and I pull focus from the driver to the bike was planned, and I was pleased to pull the focus right 28mm at f2 - to some extent that shot brings them together and makes the hole film stand up.

Thanks for posting this Sam and also the photos and explanation text that I found under the movie.

Looks like all anybody needs to copy this weekend project is only GoPro + Brushless Stabilised Boom + F3 + Motorbike + Car with Vehicle hard mounts + NEX5n + Biker Body Mount + Steadicam + FS100 + Kenyon gyro + lights + audio….. plus inventiveness, patience, luck, good contacts… phew, quite a project!

Of course but one can do a weekend project with an Nex5n, a cheap tripod and a 50 1.4 you picked up for $50 and Free Resolve.

Which is amazing considering the look one can get.

To some extent this was a test of some of the more ridiculous kit I have acquired.

The most important is setting a goal and doing it.

To me being producer/director was hardest, my 'crew' have wives and children and commitments so I had to strictly budget time and get it done - as much pressure as a commercial shoot.

Did I succeed?- well - I wanted to do a bunch more running but it was 1am and we were done in by then, we got the shot I really wanted - the focus pull from driver to bike.

Some other items in the shoot which are financially attainable - EXT lighting was 2 $30 work-lights, and the car INT was done with $10 led torches.

So still some very shoe string components.

One thing you did not mention in the list of 'things to do' was Sound. Which IMO is very worth a careful listen.

I had help from a professional mixer to build a sound using camera sound, further ambient i recorded, and then both library sounds (car alarm) and also some cinematic effects - bass wooshes on the cuts.

I learned a lot on the sound mix.

No kidding.  It looks like big time movie making from here. Superb work, Sam.

Not bad, considering that lighting is the most expensive component of production.

It shows. : )

Again, fabulous to watch.  Both the finished product and the behind the scenes.  Thanks tons for sharing.
