Here’s the new live video for “Krakenhaus – Schlachtross” shot at the “Banshee Scream Festival 2012“, a private party in Innsbruck (AT).

Unfortunately, still no chance on getting a direct sound signal. Fortunatelly, Peter gave me a helping hand by shooting with his 5D Mk II too.
Technical specifications just like for the previous video (Krakenhaus – Auf hoher See).

Krakenhaus – Auf hoher See (live)

About two weeks ago I shot a video for my friends from Krakenhaus while they were playing live at “Rock den Beichtstuhl” in Cermes(Tscherms), nearby Merano. Since now everybody seems to be happy with cut and co, I may present to you:

Shot entirely with my Canon EOS 550D and the EF 50/1.8 with a little help from a monopod (Cullman Magnesit 525M). Unfortunately, the sound quality isn’t as good as it could be due to lack of connectivity between recorder and mixer. Therefore it had to be recorded on mic, and mic is bad. Lesson learned. My man Peter over at phofer68 shot some pics too.

Merlot vintage 2012

A while ago, I had the chance to replace my beloved EOS 400D with an EOS 550D. I thought it was a good idea, because setting up a long time exposure (with a ND filter) with the 400D was kind of a pain in the ass. Even if you did everything right – a light nudge on the focus ring and everything was ruined. On the other hand, setting up a long time exposure with live view was as easy as taking candy from a baby – as long as you’re not Mr. Burns.

But, obviously that 550D wasn’t only good for long time exposures, and so – one sunny day – I rotated the mode wheel to movie. And yes, it was quite interesting, although I wasn’t very happy with the settings. So why not giving Magic Lantern a shot? And I did.

Even though I already uploaded a video (“Dolomity Tour“) a year ago, what you see here is my first “serious” video. So what’s the story.. The wine producer scheduled the vintage of  Merlot to October 4th and my dad asked me – like every year – for help. Unfortunately I wasn’t planing to shoot that day, so I wasn’t prepared at all. I had no tri-/monopod, I had no plan, not even my batteries were fully charged.
Nonetheless it worked out pretty well and so the movie shows the harvest of Merlot wine grapes and the delivery at the wine producer. It was shot on location in Andriano and at the Cantina Terlano in Terlano.
