Squared Media

Squared Media
Watch the movie. (part1)

"I am always trying to do what I can not do yet, in order to learn how to do it"...
Ok, I didn't say this. It is a quote from Vincent Van Gogh, but in any case I totally feel identified.

We "vloggers" are not media professionals (at least I am not), we are just learning the tools, the language, the do's and dont's, the rules... So I am continuously looking for new ways to brake them, to play with them.

This movie is meant to be seen on a page with grey background (the one that usually pops up when you click on the link for a movie... (the standard, if you know what I mean). Soooo it should work if you just click the link on top.

I have a second part that I will be posting soon... I have other things to do besides posting "friggin" videos. One has to eat you know....

Cool! I like the bouncing walls! Did you use Final Cut Pro to do that?

Bouncing walls all over my house :P

I used iMovie and Flash for the FX :P, FinalCut Pro is way too expensive for an empty packet like mine.

I won't be doing many of these. They are time consuming and good for design purposes but not sure for "vlogging".

Clever! That was fun. Thanks for sharing that. How much time did it take to produce that?

this one took a bit too much for my taste. Not time puting the footage together, but the work in flash was about 5 hours for this video and a second one.

I enjoy mixing my vlogs with more artsy style, experimental but I am wondering how "pure" of a vlog this is?. I feel it is kind of a vlog with hormons and steroids.

I AM SHOPPING AROUND FOR A DECENT CAMcorder...what do you use to get that widescreen look. I looks great!

I have a Sony I bought around 6 or 7 years ago. At that time it cost me around $1,600. Of course now you have better cameras for way less price. Mine is a bit heavy compaired to the new ones but it kind of helps when you are shooting without a tripod. For the widescreen look, I started to recors at 16:9 wide (standadrd for movies on big screen), an option that I believe comes with many cameras (I kinda like the big-screen feeling) and now with iMovie you can create a project with the preferences for "DV wide" so it does not distort your footage.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the visit.

Thank you for your quick reply. ANd for your insight to camcorders. Your vblog and content have inspired me greatly.Especially since my son is one week from being born...when will I find time it create and so all that I have in the past. I guess after watching your videos...maybe after they all go to sleep. :0
