Hey, good stuff. Especially for just beginning to shoot. Nice job cutting together different shots on the action, esp on the bench sequence.
The only advice, I noticed some weird interlacing too, for example at 2:35 and 2:42. It looks like maybe this was introduced by the shots you used smoothing in post? Just curious what editing software you used. I didn't see interlacing for most of the vid--you just want to be sure to keep your timelines, exports and compressions progressive whenever possible, esp. for the web. The web doesn't like interlaced.
I didn't notice the PC range vs. TV range issue. I don't know about lower end editing systems, but I know on Final Cut and AVID (and I'm pretty sure adobe premiere) you have to drop a filter on your video to get it to go from PC levels to TV levels, so that's probably not an issue.
If you're looking at making it feel like film, though, shoot 24p and put your shutter to 1/50th. Anything faster can make it feel choppy or more like video.
Eventually you may want to mess around with different video picture settings--turn down sharpness, contrast, and saturation. Then mess around with color correction in post to get the look you want. This is what a lot of people do.
But yeah, good stuff.
Hmmm I noticed some interlacing artifacts in your video, how was that introduced?
Edit: Another common oversight is that the levels weren't converted to PC range, which may be what I'm seeing here. The 5D records in PC range, but most video players and apps often assume TV range, so the video can look a little washed out. This was a problem in the C300 debut video Mobius. Convert from the assumed TV range to PC range to get "truer" looking levels for regular web presentation.
I was using Mercalli to smooth out some of the pans, but I'm not sure if it was worth it, although you are the first to mention the interlacing issues. I will have to read about converting the levels to the correct range, and do that in my next film. Thanks for the info!
