This is a collection of footage i’ve shot with a beta unit of the Blackmagic URSA (EF mount) over the last few weeks.
Disclaimer: I now work for Blackmagic Design but this video was produced the same way as my previous beta videos, and is definitely not some kind of ‘official’ demo video. Its just a collection of personal footage i’ve shot while getting to know the camera recently. - Hook
I originally tried to upload an UHD Prores LT, but it failed at 88%. :( I will continue to try and replace the current file but even if not, i still recommend downloading the 1080 Prores LT version - the motion looks a little ‘funny’ on vimeo.
This was all shot using ONLY the built in 10” screen for composing/focus and most of the time it was just Danelle and I grabbing footage, i really wanted to see if this bigger camera could still be used like the much smaller BMD ones without a crew etc. The only exception to this being some music video footage, but that was also a tiny crew of 3 of us involving me as director/dop/gaffer with Johnathan Guest from Halcyon Digital being camera/lighting assist, as well as DIT and dolly grip !!
The rest is friends doing us favours and getting footage while on holiday to celebrate our 10 year anniversary in Queenstown. Carrying around the URSA, lenses, and tripod on ski slopes was tiring and hard work and not much of a holiday! I also almost dropped the camera off the side of a friends mini speed boat while trying to hold it up to get footage going down the river. :-P
HUGE thanks to:
Jeremy and Julian McPike
Todd Columb and his freerunning friends
Jayden and Ange Keoghan
Sound The Ocean
Chelsea and Michelle Barns
and of course my much better half for the last 10 years - Danelle !!

Not a showreel. This movie is trying to explain what a Colorist does and how he or she can add value to a project
This video explains the steps on creating a Dolly Zoom for a timelapse and incorporating a hyperlapse.
Genustech Universal Adapter Bar System - to hold the rails for the follow focus
CAMTREE Solid Gear Follow Focus - to zoom the lens out between each shot
Manfrotto 535 Tripod legs - has a half bowl mount which is important for a good hyperlapse
Sachtler FSB-8 Tripod head - has a half ball mount which is important for a good hyperlapse
LRTimelapse - For smoothing out exposure jumps as the sun went down
Adobe Bridge CS6 - For selecting photos when there was an exposure bump
Adobe Camera Raw CS6 - For giving the photos a look and matching exposure bumps
Adobe After Effects CS6 - Makes photos into a video file and smooths out shaky video.

Whitestone Motion Pictures is proud to present Heartless: The Story of the Tin Man.
Based on the backstory of one of the most beloved childrenʼs novels of all time comes the extraordinary love story between a simple woodsman and a beautiful maiden. Not having many possessions but wanting to marry his maiden, the woodsman sets his heart to build a large and beautiful cabin.
L. Frank Baum wrote the back story to the Tin Woodsman in his book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
