Act of Valor

I just talked about ‘Like Crazy’ a couple of days ago, which was shot on the Canon 7D and is out in theaters now.  And now, Relativity Media, which picked up ‘Act of Valor‘ for a cool $13M earlier this year, just released the second trailer for the film.  As you may already know, Act of Valor was shot primarily with the Canon 5D Mark II and a combination of Zeiss and Panavision lenses – with Shane Hurlbut, ASC serving as DP on the film.

They say adding motion to a timelapse is the way to make it really shine. The folks at Beepshow used an Air France jet as a 5000 mile dolly to capture this cool timelapse on an 11 hour flight from San Francisco to Paris.

The timelapse was captured with a Canon 5D Mark II and 16-35mm f/2.8 lens.  Audio was mixed on an iPad and the whole thing was edited in iMovie and After Effects CS5.

Yet another reason to always get the window seat.

The Pentax K-7 recently received some time in the spot light with the creation of the short film Uncle Jack (shown above), as well as The Rider (below).  These two short films were shot entirely with the Pentax K-7 and a variety of Pentax lenses. [click to continue…]
