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.
This would be awesome I've always thought video-references needed to be out there
If you are able to do some of these, I'd definitely use them
Also, possibly saying vs singing? Like doing a christmas carol as song and then as spoken verse.
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
And the last part where you smile in the video looks nice and simple.
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!
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.
