    Very, very nice. I don't shoot much video with my cameras - I prefer stills - but it's nice to see what they are capable of producing.

    i loved it
    i always wanna do video stuff
    but, i feel that id(personally, due to my mentalness), would need like 10 huge monitors to have lil clips all over so i could see them all at once and figure out what i want where... or mebbe i could print out a sample film strip of each clip and then arrange them on the floor... lol :)

    i also loved the club shots, and the guy playing piano feeling like it went to the music
    but i liked best, the opening train leading to the title

    Great video!

    Whats the crazy bamboo water/slide thing? Catching noodles?

    Also - any detail you can go into how you made it would be great. Filters, editing software, etc.

    Good job

    Thanks guys.
    I'm still really new at all this stuff so I'm sure I'm breaking allot of video rules.
    - I only used the camera handheld.
    - I bought an ND4 filter but probably used it once and I don't even think the shot made the cut.
    - I mainly used manual mode setting the shutter at 50 and playing around with the aperture and ISO until the picture was right. But a few times I just hit the record button cos I had no time to play around with settings.
    - On the OM-D I shoot at the highest video setting. Initially I was shooting at 720p because I preferred progressive but then I changed to the 1080i/p setting so I could play around with cropping.
    - I purely used final cut pro x to edit and color each frame individual, this took the most time.

    - FYI, I have a GF1 and a small steady cam which I used in previous videos but have not touched that setup since OM-D.

    Oh... and it was mostly AF. I'd AF on the subject and hit record and keep really still.
