Playing catch-up a bit. Here’s the fourth video in the series documenting the construction of my new studio/office. It was shot last fall as the trim work was being done. It’s so green at the moment that it’s nice to see some fall colors.

In editing the piece I really liked the percussive sounds juxtaposed with the saws and the occasional voices of the builders. So, no music track on this one, just the sounds of the work site.

The video is also on in the Motion Gallery.

Design/Build by McAuliffe + Carroll Architects.

Construction by Klemmer Building Contractors of Stockton, NJ.

    These are beautiful shots and nice crisp sound. Did you use your hdslr for this? If so, can you tell me what body and lens you were using and how you handled audio?

  2. Stephen –

    Thanks. Yes, HDSLR -> Canon 1D Mark IV. This short has clips from the 70-200 f/2.8 II, 50 f/1.2, and 24 f/1.4 II lenses. The lenses were used in conjunction with ND filters to keep the aperture settings in the f/2-f/4 range.

    Sound was recorded via a hot-shoe mounted mini-shotgun mic which inputs directly into the camera’s sound jack. Sound wise it’s not as good as a second-system sound setup but it’s much better than the camera’s internal mic.
