A few years ago I was going to try to create a video that captured the feel of being in the Scottish hills and mountains, but I was going to try to make it look like it was shot in the 70‘s on 8mm film. I taken a Panasonic NVGS230 on a recky that I was on anyway, slapped it on full auto, turned off image stabilization and grabbed some quick shots on route.
I intentionally never shot anything that could date the film such as people/clothes or roads/cars. This turned out to be a mistake as it kind of rendered the footage useless for anything else.
But I dug it back out and used it to create a demo of some of the effects, transitions and titles I’ve created for FCPX.
While ignoring the 8mm cine idea I tried to stick to my initial intention of getting the grungy feel of being in the hills, but the primary intention is to demo the templates.
The result isn't a great film, but as a demo I kind of like it, it’s a little different. It’s not going to be for everyone and I should probably warn of strobing and flashing content.
