I publish here a series or free articles and tutorials, as an introduction and educational resource for my up-coming Editing and Color Grading Workshops and Seminars.
All my courses are for the moment online, using Zoom. Classes are in English, with a maximum of 12 students per workshop. From October to December 2020, all courses have a reduced price of 135 Euros, instead of the regular 195 Euros fee, to help a bit during the Covid pandemic. This is a 60 Euros saving!
Next DaVinci Resolve Color Grading Workshop is from November 2nd to 6th, 09:30 to 13:30 (Central European Time). Get informed here.
You can read reviews about my teaching here. I’m a highly experienced editing instructor, with more than 15 years of workshops behind!.
Now, to the free content of today!
FREE DOWNLOAD OF GH5 BERLIN FOOTAGE
I’m happy to offer you, 100% gratis, a selection of 43 clips, recorded in Berlin, that you you can use to edit and grade freely: to learn, practice, create port-folio, or even add to your projects.
These are some of the clips I use in my Editintg and Grading Workshop in Berlin and Madrid.
They’re shot in various light conditions and sizes: interiors, exterios, wide, details, back-lights, night, etc..
You should be able to make a small and nice Berlin video.
- Recorded with a Panasonic GH5.
- V-Log. If you want to start from a LUT, apply a V-Log to Rec.709 one, or use a color manged workflow.
- Sigma Art 18-35.
- No ND filters.
- The files are converted to MXF for easier editorial: DNxHD, 1080 24p. You can import them in DaVinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer, Premiere Pro, After Effects, etc..
- The shots are framed to Scope (2.39:1). If you are in DaVinci Resolve, you can add a catch (black bars) going to the Timeline Menu, then Output Blanking, then select 2.39:1. If you are in Avid Media Composer, define Mask Margins to 2.39, and right clik on the Composer Window to activate them. In Premiere Pro, you may use and Adjustmen Layer, and crop it.
- All clips have a small watermark at the bottom, to identify the source. The watermark is easily hidden adding the Scope catch, as described in the prevoius point.
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH THIS FOOTAGE?
You know what?
Do whatever you want with them.
You can use them to practice, add to your color reel, publish on-line, etc.. If you publish your results on-line, feel free to post it on my Facebook Page. It’ll be fun to have a look to it and comment.
If you teach Editing and Postproduction (like I do in Berlin), you are also free to use this in your classes and pass it to your students.
You may also use them in your video projects, commercial or non-commercial. Now, in this case, I ask that the source is identified somehow, either in credits or web-site text. Something like “Berlin Footage from Flavio G. García” or “Some Footage used under permission from Flavio G. García” will do it.
