MadRag Fall 2014 Behind The Scenes

I had another wonderful opportunity to work on this behind the scenes video.

Reno Fireworks in Almost Cinerama 4K video on Youtube

I shot 2 individual fireworks show during my stay in Reno, NV over the July 4th holiday. One show was in Reno after the Aces baseball game and another was further on the horizon in Sparks, Nevada an hour or so later. Viewed individually, the videos aren’t that interesting—but placed side by side in a panoramic video format and edited on a 4K timeline in Final Cut Pro X, I think it looks great.  I can’t wait until  AppleTV goes 4K and I get a 4K television.

A surprising realization….

Rewatching “World War Z”

I love this film. It has that “War of the Worlds” “Cloverfield” and bit “I am Legend” feel to it.

It showed up on Amazon and Netflix and I’m glad it has.

Amazon has an open matte version while Netflix has Original aspect ratio.

Notes and comments:

Th supermarket scene: why are the store lights blinking like that? Probably because it looks crazy and cool.

If there was ever a pit bull attack–magazines wrapped around forearms with duct tape seem useful.

“Desal”– desalinization.. Sea water to drinking water.
