A couple of months ago we decided to put together an instructional speed video of us as instructors at Pacific Wave Jiu-jitsu. While I’m happy that the video turned out well, this being my first multi-camera project, I wouldn’t mind reshooting it with faster performance of the technique. It was shot with 2 cameras, the main camera being a Panasonic HDC-TM700. The second camera was an HD capable Sony Handycam I borrowed from a student. All camera shake in the film is from the actual shaking of the cameras from the force of the throws.
This piece was edited using Final Cut Pro X, and Motion. The motion title transition was a slightly edited version of one of the default themes that comes with Motion 5. I basically changed the colour and the background.
I’m particularly proud of the music in this video, which I mixed using loops in GarageBand. It seemed to really fit the video. It did however take me two weeks to get the music out of my head.
