Green Screen Test

July 24, 2009

My green screen stand was delivered this week.
It can adjust to almost 9 feet. I had set everything up in one of our downstairs living rooms. Once I showed my brothers they were quick to act out a good o fake fighting scene. Courtesy of playing video games all the time I’m sure :P. Excuse the jagged edges in the video. To complete my little setup I’ll have to buy some backlights to illuminate the green which will avoid those shadows from appearing. It’s so big, I sure as heck didn’t feel like ironing it just yet, but if this is the result of a keyed out wrinkled, semi-lit green screen, then hotdaym I can’t wait to get those backlights!

The Greener the Better

July 16, 2009

Ah yes, a green screen. The next practice for me. Am I just going to film against a plain white wall or in the same setting all the time whenever I can’t really film elsewhere? No way! This here is just the remedy I need to spice things up a bit. Now I wait for my adjustable background stand to be delivered so I can start practicing with this shiny shexy green sheet.

True Blood, True Blood, True Blood.
My coworkers have mentioned how HOT of a show it is. I’ve seen it on Twitter’s trending topics and you know what I needed a new show to hopefully get into. A new show to suck me in. It seems only reality shows have that ability lately. So earlier this week I decided to see what the freak the fuss is all about. Plus, i heard it’s a vampire show, therefore, I’m thinking if I’m lucky it’s going to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer-ISH! Or maybe it’ll be Twilight-ISH, which is still okay with me.

After watching the first episode of the first season of True Blood earlier this week, I was hooked. Love the wild affection and the way they link the characters. The show is only around the beginning of it’s second season right now so it’s actually possible and not tiring to catch up with. I’m nearly done with season one. Yay a new show to add to the: “go home, chillax, catch up with the latest episode” list.

In other news: Rest in peace, Michael Jackson, The King of Pop.

Hey, welcome to TheNextAisle, showcasing my use of the things I enjoy: gadgets, snapshots and filming. Yes oh yes! I’m known to bust out my camera, take photos and record when opportunity meets. What can I say? I’m a super camera freak. This place is a storage for my videography and a journey booklet for my photos. Thanks for visiting!

Feel the Focus

June 25, 2009

Music: Electric Feel – MGMT

A video I made with clips of my brother going to the bookstore to buy his SAT book. He’s really serious about scoring high so he can get into his college of choice. Awesome, he’s got that ambition. He’ll be a senior in the fall meanwhile my other brother will be a freshman at that same high school. He’s so pumped to finally be going into high school!

Included in this video are clips of things I recorded in my backyard because I was SO determined to figure out how to control the camcorders focus mode… where I can get it to be blurry one second and then BAM sharp the next. Took me a good few frustrating minutes, but I got it. Basically I have to toggle between the manual focus and instant auto focus with the mode dial. Coolness.

I actually got a chance to do some video editing for other people for the first time. HOLD UP! 😉 They filmed it in the parking lot and then gave me the footage to edit. It features my long time friend’s (Naomi) cousin-iB and his friend, Max Pain. They (including another guy, Osh) have a new pumped single called, “Omo Baby” and a Nigerian reunion that they’ll be performing at on June 27th.
