    Haven't seen much posted in the XL-H1 section lately so I thought I might put something up.
    Just finished my first semester at USC's SCA production program, so here is one of my shorts that I shot on my canon.

    Sound plays a big role in this piece, so crank up your volume.

    Pretty impressive work. Did you use a 35mm adapter? it looks softer than a lot of my A1 footage, but in a good "filmic" way. Color correction felt very appropriate and it did deliver a lot of tension. Reminds me of Ole Bornedals "Nightwatch", which despite most, I really enjoyed.

    I'm glad to see some other people here using the Canon cams as well ;-)

    Cool, thanks for taken a look. Nope, no adapter. I just always keep my detail level way down.

    great camera work...any stabilizers used? seems like everyone color-grades that way now..nothing original...the music seemes too BIG for the production, til i realized it was a dream, then it really fit...LOVE the end!!

    i think a lot of us wake up from a dream wondering if it was real, and we're looking for that first bit of evidence that it's not....yet, we kind of wish it was...

    Yep, a little stabilization was provided by the dvrig pro.

    Hello Paul,
    Good work. Everything fit well. It is nice to see more work done with the Canon XLH1. I liked the music throughout the film I also like the look of the actress. I think her look went well with the story. Keep up the good work.

    Yep, gotta love the XL-h1. Shot some stuff recently with a rented P+S tech and cooke primes. Loved it cause the adapter mounts to the body and not onto the front of your stock lens. I dont think I will ever go back to a fixed lens camera.

    Hey Paul,
    What lens did you use. Was it the 20X that came with the camera or the 6X wide angle.

    Just the 20x. It captures great images but is servo driven, so pulling focus is almost impossible. Couldn't use any thing other than what I had since there was zero budget.

    Another interesting little tid bit. For the rain sequence, there were no water faucets on the side of the building that we were shooting on. So, we used a sump water pump, like the ones you would use to drain a flooded basement or pool. We had 5 gallon buckets standing by that were refilled on the other side of the building. We would drop the pump into the buckets and then run a hose to our nozzle. Not easy, but at least it worked.

    Thanks,
    Yea I like the images that the 20X produces I also like Canon's 6X HD wide lens. Very creative with the rain. Man I would like to see what you could produce with a real budget.
