    I went out a few days ago to hike at a local hiking path near a mysterious beach and misty cliffs.
    I took the opportunity to fly a bit over the cliffs and experiment with a bit of a cinematic feel to the edit. Certainly had fun doing this :)

    Constructive comments are welcome !



    Thanks for watching !

    Very well edited!

    Were some shots reversed/sped up?

    Hi, thanks for watching ! Yes some shots were reversed and sped up (the one in the little green gorge is an example). I tried to use the optical flow rendering option in final cut pro x to smooth those out, but still experimenting with different options.

    Any suggestions / comments / improvements you would see ? Thanks !

    Well done! What camera settings did you use and did you use any lens filters?

    What effects and filters did you use in editing? It looks really good for a cloudy day!

    That was really well done. What programme do you use for editing? The footage looks so smooth. Did you have an ND filter on?

    Hi
    hi, no filter. The light was really aoft and it was cloudy so that helped. I then applied a little color grading to give it a more misterious look by reducing some of the saturation and adding a bit of brown. Thanks for watching !

    Hi, I didn't use any filters, the light was soft because it was cloudy. I then applied some color grading using ProGrade from Pixelfilm Studios (pluging for Final Cut Pro X)

    Thanks for watching !

    Wow! I loved you video. I hope someday I will gain the experience that's necessary to put something like this together. Great job!
