Miami Nights Canon 60D - YouTube
I took a 2 hour walk around Miami and this is what came out. Another attempt to create a mood or atmosphere from completely random bits of footage. Heavily influenced by Michael Mann as always and in particular Miami Vice! When I got back from shooting this I decided to light my apartment window using an iPad and make it completely blue, the resulting shot can be scene half way through the short. #cringe! Took roughly 3 days to edit. 1 day putting the footage together, 1 day grading (took ages but was addictive and fun), and 1 day adding all the sound (no source audio used).
This was my first time using FCP X and I have to say I was really impressed. It took a year of rage but I think I've finally made the transition. The grading and colour features are amazing! It's not there completely but I imagine in another few versions it will be sweet.
So desperate to make a short film now. Craving narrative! Still don't own a tripod though!
