Glancing back at a few of my blogs it seems I can tend to be a bit melancholy and reflective from time to time. And nothing beats a bit of slow motion to add a sense of melancholy.
So paying lipservice to Junathon, I donned some running shoes and chased my infeasibly fit son #1 around the park wearing some new Ashmei clothing I promised to film. I thought I’d test a feature of my Camcorder to record in high definition and a fast frame rate to allow me to slow it down when I edit it. In my mind I saw Keanu dodging bullets but in reality I got Charlie jumping over a fence. Still, it was a fun shoot.
So for the geeks among you I shot at 720p using a 50 frame per second rate and slowed to 40% in edit using Premier Pro. This is the result.
