This is how you do it filmakrs: gorgeous well-composed steady shots in glorious Moondog Labs anamorphic Home Movie Masters take note of this experiment from Donald Rees with his MoondogLabs lens and our Filmakr app at the Vancouver Aquarium!
In the midst of today’s lazy Sunday afternoon, I heard my son calling from across the room and saw him looking up from assembling a Lego with his eyes fixed out the window. “There’s a rainbow, you should film it.” I leapt over to the window, launching Filmakr on my iPhone6s Plus, selected the 4K preset, hit record first, and then got into position. First there was the bug screen to content with so, I raised my arms high to the clear pane of glass above. Then I called for him to turn off the overhead lights to eliminate a reflection I was getting and finally settled on my composition cropping out some unwanted elements on the left and right sides of the frame. I held my arms up in the awkward position for 6 minutes sensing the rainbow would disappear. Some. Time. Soon. Even after the rainbow dissolved off I held the shot a good fifteen to twenty seconds longer knowing that I wanted to speed up the shot in post and that the additional moment of footage with clouds heading toward the building would serve to distinguish the before and after of the rainbow.
In playback, the head of the clip showed a bit of the window frame for a moment, so I double-tapped the clip and moved the left trim-handle to trim off these frames. Then I tapped the Motion icon under the clip and used the UIPicker over the video area to select Fast-Mo; I double-tapped the UIPicker to get to the Motion Settings Screen where I could chose 60x from the granular speed settings on the slider. Once the fast-motion clip rendered, I saw that is was 6 seconds — perfect for Vine! Before making and sharing, I tapped the Top-Center Dropdown, tapped the right-most circle BUG Button and selected the default www.filma.kr URL BUG.
I tapped MAKE and then shared to YouTube. I wanted to share the clip to Vimeo as well so I tapped the Play Icon over the film’s thumbnail on the Films List, paused the video and tapped the V for Vimeo icon, entered my text and tapped SHARE. Whoosh, to the internets she went!
For sharing on Vine and Instagram I turned on the Instagram Square Aspect Ratio Mask, used Scale tool to reposition the image into the square frame.
From Filmakr Emnaudin, a nice Moondog Anamorphic clip shot down-under. You don’t need to read a Moondog anamorphic lens review to see how great this lens is. And what Filmakr does with it ain’t too shabby either : ) Read more
