TILT from Jesse Carmody on Vimeo.

This piece was produced, filmed, and edited by me, for my final personal project in a video production class. The footage was all shot from the top of the Santa Fe lofts, in Downtown Los Angeles.

Delirium from Michaelkelly Kelly on Vimeo.

This is Sophie Coyle singing a beautiful song on our back porch. Matt Porter is on bass, and Bob Jackson sat in on the brushes. Sophie was legging it for a bus, so I didn't have time for cut-aways, or establishing shots, or anything really. But hopefully her amazingness will eclipse all the visual technical elements. We recorded audio with a Zoom H2 flash mic that is hidden under the wooly hat (knit by my godmother and Sophie's mother, Sally Coyle) on the stool. It was shot on my Canon 5d mark2 with the canon 24-105. You can hear more of her stuff here:

A series of very well done videos highlighting difficulties of families of prisoners (see all 5 here)

Families on Trial – A Husband's Story from Wired Creative Video on Vimeo.
England and Wales has the highest imprisonment rate in Western Europe at 153 per 100,000 of the population. Prison population across the UK stands at over 92,000.

Families of prisoners are the invisible victims of crime, serving their own sentence of isolation, stigma and financial struggle.
This is one of 5 short films commissioned by Prisoners' Families and Friends' Service to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by the families of prisoners, and to highlight the contribution they can make to reducing reoffending.
According to Government research, prisoners who are supported and visited by their families are 25% less likely to reoffend than those who have no family contact or support.

And yet another video I haven't figured out how to embed yet, a nice time-lapse “28 Hours in Jyväskylä

Ok, this video isn't groundbreaking or anything, but to me, it is a great example of what can be done with the camera – even by us ‘regular guys' that don't have tons of video experience:

Sunset on Isle of Palms – – a Canon 5D Mark II Home Movie from Bryan Keith Nixon on Vimeo.
Seth, Jane and Emily have grown accustomed to me following them around with a camera. It was getting around the magic hour on Isle of Palms just before sunset, where everything was warm and glowing. The kids were clowning around and I think I captured some nice moments, both from a family perspective, as well as artistic.
I shot with a Canon 50mm F/1.8 II, which is a $100 lens. The aperture was wide open to achieve the narrow depth of field.
The entire piece was assembled in Final Cut Studio, then color corrected in Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended. If you're interested in knowing how to do this, read the comments on some of my other posts. It's pretty easy to do if you know how to use Photoshop!
