Time to hit things!

This is a dual play through with some trading 4’s to Hoedown by Zomboy with Mike Malyan and the extraordinary Troy Wright. They caught up at his studio while Mike was in Australia playing with Monuments at the Soundwave festival earlier in the year. I worked on the roving shots, colour correction and noise removal.

Very special thanks to everyone that helped make it happen:
Obviously Mike for suggesting this collab! Tim Braitling from Roulette Custom Drums Australia for lending that beautiful kit to Mike as well as manning and providing that awesome wide shot! Colin Cadell for that shooting roving shot and helping make this vid look lush! Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood from Periphery for mixing the audio, both kits sound massive considering how much spill we had in this room from both kits! And last but not least Adam Swan for providing moral support and helping with gaffer tape duties on the day! haha

This video was done in one take. We used 6 different cameras running simultaneously. Those were:

Wide Side Shot – Canon 5dMk2 16-35mm Lens
Roving Shot – Canon 5dMk3, Zeiss Lens
Troy Cymbal Shot – GoPro 3 Black
Mike Tom Shot – GoPro 3 Black
Both Over Heads – GoPro 3 Black’s

Awaking Prophecy

Recently I had the chance to film the first video for Melbourne based Death Metal act ‘The Ophidian Ascension’. Making the most of Magic Lantern’s new raw capability, I decided to use it for the shooting and shot the whole production in a combination of 24fps and 60fps. All footage was captured on a 128gb KomputerBay memory card. Two versions are available below, YouTube and Vimeo. I recommend the Vimeo one if you want the true clarity and colour I selected as YouTube seems to mute some of the tones.
