Pretty sweet. What type of stabilizer did you use? It was all very smooth. My only criticism is that the lighting was bad on the guy talking.

Used the Konova Slider and Glidecam HD4000. And yeah we were pretty limited with lighting. We and a z96 and a small Canon video light tungsten. Any lighting suggestions? we are looking into light kits right now.

What's your budget? If you are going to use testimonials in the middle, along with exterior daylight shots, I'd use tungsten lights (or HMI lights if I had unlimited budget).  I'd also go with a standard three light interview setup.

Why did you go with the glidecam 4000 instead of the 2000? Whatever the reason, it worked great. It really did glide.

$800-1000 lighting budget. I was thinking of picking up a lowel pro 3 light kit from bh.

4000 for mounting heavier cameras when needed. Just more versatile. Thanks

I am not an expert in video, but I take RE photos and I think this is one of the better videos I have seen out there.  The information given on the property was useful, length was about right, and editing and quality looked very good.  I imagine this will definitely help sell the property.

Nice video.  What video editing software was used?

I've tried my hand in real estate video a little, and one of the problems is the weird dizzying effect one gets when wide angle lens is panned from side to side.  I see some of that in the first video, though it was kept very short wisely.  Anyone have suggestions for that?  One can minimize it by panning Extremely slow side to side, but it's tough on the shooter's patience, and the effect can still be seen. 

Also, any decent but cheaper stabilizers out there?  I'm not looking for perfect results, just significantly better than hand-held.  I've tried a simple hand-held gimbal-based one, with the curved steel stem and removable washer weights, but I could never get it to balance correctly, especially left to right due to asymmetry of the DSLR. 

Would something like this be better?

And i used PP cs6 just to experiment with it and see how the new one compares to fcp 7/x. Used Magic Bullet Looks for grading

For the photos, my main recommendation is to keep your verticals.  A number of the photos have their verticals off.  Otherwise the colors are nice and your framing is good.

If this is an expensive property you may want to do something with the windows.  I usually take one of the individual shots from my exposure blend and use it to replace the window with a good exposure.  This home is nowhere near as nice as yours (it is a bank foreclosure) but should give you an idea - http://www.johnlscott.com/PropertyDetail.aspx?GroupID=269205185&ListingID=301009830&CMID=-1&Sort=0&RTR=30&LI=1

thank you! I've done that with the windows before and this was just a super quick turn around job video and photo so i decided not too. But what do you do to keep your vertical straight? i want to get up higher then tilt down to see over things but of course then the verticals are off. do you use t/s lenses? Nice shots btw

The easiest way to keep your verticals straight is to keep your camera level.  I use tilt shifts (TS-E 17, TS-E 24 II, and TS-E 90) in order to then frame appropriately.

Not to pry, but I will - did it pay enough for it to be worth your time and a good project?  I've always been a little worried to get involved with real estate agents - seems like they would never pay well and be difficult.

Great video! If you don't mind me asking what does a client pay for something like that?

Also when it comes to interior photography I definitely recommend TSE lenses and you can keep everything vertical as they appear visually.

Great work none the less!
