Another Key Tomorrow: The Story Beyond the Still Chapter 3 (Submission) from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.
Thrilled my entry made top 5!
Things are getting complicated now.
My entry to the Canon beyond the still contest.
Hopefully you guys will watch and enjoy it. Everything was shot with the Canon 5D2 at iso 2000 to 3400, including the daylight clips, using a vari filter for open aperture and high iso for the gritty look. Lenses used: 70-200/4, 24-70/2.8, 17-40/4, 16-35/2.8, 24/1.4. Stitched together in fcp, 3way color corrector, no noise reduction, or any other filters. Before starting this project I asked my friend Dikayl Rimmasch to collaborate as a film maker but he was tied up with a job and gave me permission to use one of his songs instead. And a big thanks to Constantin Philippou, who wrote a big part of the music for this piece. The third song was purchased from Twistedtracks.com, and of course I want to thank Wilder Lee, who provides the drum beat. myspace.com/thewilderlee . Big thanks to everybody who collaborated, on such short notice, I will post a complete list of credits tomorrow.

Thanks Mike, I look forward to hearing your steady-cam verdict. B.T.W., I just bought a 7D. My first experiment is at: Hungry Ghost Bakery: http://www.vimeo.com/9028097
thanks Oleg and Robert. @Robert, the one in my profile pix is from the flea market, 20 bucks and falling apart now. I am testing a few rigs and will post a review in about 2 weeks.
Mike, I just discovered your work online. Very fine, and thank you for sharing so much about your hardware and techniques. I like this piece. . . you have a sweet sensitivity to color. One question you may have answered already in other video descriptions: how do you steady your SLR HD cameras? What sort of steady cam do you like?
Good job on this, nice acting I thought.
