    Here's one I recently wrote, directed, shot and edited. Shoestring budget and non-actors, as usual ;)

    --

    Sony FS700 + Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8
    Premiere+AE CS6

    Good, looks very professional for the budget.

    That blackbird came yesterday. I had a chance to play with it for about 2 hours yesterday... so many variables when balancing!

    I didn't get the balancing down pat with 550D + Battery Grip (2x batteries), Sigma 10-20mm. I'll rewatch that video and read up a bit more on it tonight.

    Very much regretting not getting the full kit too, I didn't realise how annoying not having a stand for it would be.

    Looks nice - gotta love the FS100

    Noticed when the Icons appear that you have the light/colour from the icon affecting the person as well.

    In the first shot with Kitty the area around the 3 icons gets a little darker as they hit the screen.

    Isn't that jingle currently being used for HBF or something? I know I have heard it, but can't place it exactly.

    Well done on the vid though. Great stuff.

    I really like the voiceover guy, too.

    Was waiting for a bit at the end where the waiter gets fired.

    Haha yeah, the fire in the background kinda foreshadows that.

    Yep, it's currently being used in an OMO ad :( Only realised after I'd finished it.

    Very pro Yakub, I swear I've heard the voice over before.

    nice work. I like the extra details such as the interactive lighting and reflections in the wine glasses. Did you use a slider for the dolly moves?

    Yeah, I was getting so incredibly frustrated trying to balance it when I first got mine. Then once you get it balanced, even flipping out the LCD screen or plugging in headphones throws off the balance... :mad:

    Great commercial, crap product…

    Seriously, people get bad service and they would rather post feedback in an app then just walk 10m to the manager and express their concern…? WTF is wrong with people these days!?

    As I said though, production looks great. Thanks for sharing!

    Awesome work dude!

    Also the voice over sounds a lot like lewis from veronica and lewis on jjj. Assuming however that it is not.

    I added the gimbal extender, tightened the gimbal tension and now I'm loving it! Balance in 10-15 seconds each time with 550D + Sigma 10-20mm + Grip. :thumbup:

    I've only done walk arounds the house, I'm looking forward to taking it out for a proper whirl. It's relighted my passion for cinematography :thumbup:

    Great work, the FS700 is a gorgeous camera. My only issue was the green glow that first shows on the woman's face looked rather artificial but the rest was flawless. Killed it!
