    Hi all,
    A mini showreel I've just put together, still work in progress and would love to know your thoughts, criticism would be most welcome how I could improve some of the shots, moves etc. Sorry just stitched together in a bit of a rush I'm about to go on the next shoot so only had a few hours to cut this... grading is all a bit of a mess I know haha and will definitely improve it when I get a few days spare!
    Mostly shot in China, with a few exceptions... see if anyone could of guessed lol.
    Thanks and hope you enjoy it!
    Best,
    Jacky

    Very nice imagery and great use of moving foregrounds!

    What lenses did you use?

    Cheers Ed, well on the I1Pro I use the 12mm f2 almost all the time but in this vid probably 40% was shot with the I1Pro and 60% was on the P3P which the lens is equivalent to 20mm FF.

    Jacky, very nice video with great visuals and an appropriate musical score. Good exposure control but a couple spots seemed a bit soft.

    There were two scenes that looked like it might be a place for Sky Burials -- do you know if that is what that is about? I thought that was mostly in Tibet...

    Majestic, magnificent, and gutsy (real close to the treetops at speed.)

    Fantastic stuff! I love how game you are around the tree tops. Music is very fitting too

    Thanks
    Hi Brian, thanks for your comment I'll keep a good eye on the focus next time for sure!

    The scenes are shot in Yunnan China, although really it's part of the tibetan region and all the locals are tibetan.
    The prayer flags and stones are not for sky burials, but do serve an important religious purpose. They are a physical representation of faithful people’s prayers to achieve positive conditions such as long life, health and success. These prayer flags and stones can be commonly found within the tibetan region.

    Well I would say techincally it's in the tibetan region, although officially in Yunnan China.

    Thanks buddy! ;) Although nowadays productions want slow and smooth movements and that's much harder to maneuver!

    Stunning! Yes, some shots need some grading work but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing. Great work. Thanks for sharing.
