Paul you should have seen my attempts with a tripod on those moving shots, the part the camera sits on can move a full 360 degrees so produced some interesting movements. All the stills were on a tripod which worked out well.

That intro only took me about 2 minutes  :rolleyes: but I am glad it looks strong/powerful/cool.

 

Will start working on the story and plan out the shots before I start shooting any more footage.

 

All the comments are very much appreciated.

File this under the "Put-up or Shut-up" department...but I realized that I haven't done a personal video project in several years and it is probably time to jump in. I'm replacing my heavily travelled (and tired), 10 year-old Dell laptop this week and have made sure that my new Mac is well equipped to do video editing. See what you have started?! ;)  For the record, most of my video editing history has been mission trip documentary or just fun, athletic event stuff...like this.

Don't blame me for spending all that money on a mac  ^_^

 

It is really fun to video your throwing. I have learnt so much about how I throw watching them back. I also thought I was a lot better  :( Sometimes I sit here thinking " what are you even doing  :wacko: "

I use video feedback in some of my throwing courses.  As you say.... works wonders with students.

 

best,

Great video!

 

The voice over worked extremely well.

 

Very nice bowls, great footring.

 

The only thing I don't like, is that your wheel is way better than mine.

Excellent video ... Very nice.

Two business related concerns ...
Don't think you can use that little musical sound bite at the start without paying royalties.
Where is the credit for the voice over? You might have to pay to use that too.

I really enjoyed it. The centering with the finger was painful to watch, but you got there. Makes me want to make some tea bowls!

Thank you guys :D

I am very lucky to have two generous parents who replaced my old wheel that seemed to eat through these rubber rings that it used to spin.

 

You are right Chris, I have probably broken a few rules there. I should have credited the voice and need to remove the hbo ident sound before they hunt me down. I spent a long time looking for free music to use but couldn't find anything I wanted to use. Alan watt's talk seemed to fit the idea I had in mind. I have never been good with sounds and the ones I use are in appreciation of their work but it no doubt won't be perceived that way by the owners. Need to work on my plagiarism for the next one.

 

I have tried to tap centre but I end up hitting my pot around the wheel instead of getting in centred. It is slow but also the only way I can manage to do it successfully. You would have been in a lot of pain watching it in real time  :unsure:

Another method, similar to tap centering, that I use is to use clay wads to attach the ware to a thick bat.  I center the ware the best I can on said bat, which doesn't really matter that much, because the bats I use aren't perfect circles.  Then, like tap centering, I get the wheel going slowly, but instead of tapping the ware, I tap the bat.  The bat isn't nearly as likely to move too far, and there is no chance of hurting the ware.  Once I have it centered, I use more clay wads to hold the bat in place.

It seems like a small thing but I guarantee that every time those music bars are used, a composer hears CHA-CHING $$$ .... plus they are not exactly obscure.

 

I had a friend who did voice overs and commercials back in the dark ages ... and even then he had a company whose job it was to track down every time his voice was used. CHA-CHING $$$$

 

If your video went viral, you'd be hearing from some folks. :D :P :unsure:
