Testing video submission.

The lighting is weird because this was from when I shot the angles from below set, and the compression isn't quite what I wanted it to be. I'll experiment with other compression settings to get better colour. I'm currently using VirtualDub to compress my footage down.

I used my Canon EOS D40 along with the EOS camera movie record program which lets you capture video from the live view of the camera, which can get 720p resolution.
Because I'm using my DSLR to capture video, there is no sound so far. I'd have to record sound simultaneously and mix it in with a clapper.

I'm not saying anything in particular. "The quick fox jumped over the lazy brown dog" which is actually a typeface test, but it's fun to say and gets some good mouth motion.

The purpose of video submissions is to help with drawing and animation, not for use as stock footage for projects like music videos or commercials.

@00:12Quality stuff. All of this was very appreciated, but I think the part where you run out of stuff to say and you make that awkward shrug where you re-position and your eyes shift off camera is the best part of this test. Also the embarrassed smile was a great reference. Thanks for this informative post, even if just a test.

Ha, all I could think of was my choir warmups when I saw this! We were encouraged to do them in front of a mirror and exaggerate our faces to see how the sound changed. I would love to see something with a sentence or phonemes repeated with varying levels of exaggeration - like saying versus yelling 'run!' or asking a question while happy and again while angry, that kind of thing. Thanks for this test run, it's such a cool idea!

Good ideas. Yes, acting classes taught us a lot about Lion and Prune faces, as well as drooly jaw massages.
Also, possibly saying vs singing? Like doing a christmas carol as song and then as spoken verse.

Sent you a message with the codec information they use. They embed with HTML5 in the pages, so the video codec information can be retrieved easy with Firefox's development tools. Did want to leave a huge information dump in your messages though... Hope the information helps... They use a good quality codec conversion though, so there shouldn't be much artifacting in there compression anyhow.

I know this is just a video test and I don't have to applause, but I enjoy your video test. :)
I love your free facial expressions in the video. That made me happy :D
And the last part where you smile in the video looks nice and simple. :aww:

The video itself or sound?
There is no sound for the video. If you can't see the video at all you may need to update your player. I'll look it up on DA's FAQ.

If I use this as a drawing reference do you want me to treat it like any of your other stock?

Btw, I hope your endeavor for making videos works out well!

Sure. Just a credit link is fine.
I mean, if you wanted to be super specific you could say something like "Reference used the smile at 00:24 seconds in the video"
Not sure what the project is.

Yes. My hope is to have something simple (Like, Flanders Fields or Two Roads Diverged In a Yellow Wood) and film it simultaneously with multiple cameras. I have a few point-and-shoot cameras with simple video capacity (not near the resolution of my main camera, more like webcam quality) and possibly borrow a few friends iphones and line them up. Then I could synch up the video and sound to show my lips / face moving from multiple angles.
