iPhone: The Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology

Posted in iPhone, Journalism, Video on October 22nd, 2011 by admin

Spent the morning over in Camarillo, Calif., filming the 9th annual open house of The Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology. What a place!!! I had no idea there was such a collection here in Ventura County. Nonetheless, I wanted more practice with editing a daily video on the iPhone. I used 1st Video again but this time used the FilMIC Pro App to record the video. Very nice addition to the app collection. Took me a lot less time to edit this piece, about 3 hours. Still a long time but it’s nice to be able to edit without a computer and FCP. One complaint about 1st Video is no ability to color correct, as you’ll see in this video. Mercury Vapor lights, the worst!

iPhone: Cats in the Canyon & Hounds in the Hollow

Last weekend I had the opportunity to hang out with my Humane Society of Ventura County friends at one of their annual fundraisers, Cats in the Canyon & Hounds in the Hollow at Arroyo Verde Park in Ventura, Calif. It was a perfect opportunity to shoot another daily video on my iPhone, this time though ALSO TO EDIT it on the iPhone. Thanks to Ray Meese at the VC Star for turning me on the the iPhone app, 1st Video by VeriCorder. There are some things to work out, like making sure the camera is MUCH more steady and practicing more on the app itself. It’s amazingly deep but complicated – it’ll just take time to practice. I cut a version in FCP to compare the two, not much difference! The version here is the iPhone version. Enjoy.

The Wait

While working on the film about my mother, I shot this sequence waiting for her to come home. It wasn’t until I got the footage logged and looked at it did it occur to me to cut it into something funny. Just for laughs.
