Totally Random

I needed to try out some new film gear. I needed a blog update. I got a new, weird, giant robot toy that you have to see to believe. Somehow, it all came out in the form of a video blog that I threw together in a couple hours Wednesday afternoon.

It’s pretty down and dirty; just natural lighting and onboard sound. I really just wanted to try out this new slider system…which is sweet.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to make a habit of this. But you gotta see the crazy ass robot toy(s)!

  1. Sliders are fun to work with. What software did you use to edit?

    Keep working with the slider and it will get smoother.

    I love the robots. The lion Voltron is still the best. I have one waiting for my son when he gets a little older. ;)

      My technique is raw on the slider. I’ve never actually DP’d anything. I was also bracing the slider by hand for the boom shots because I need another tripod mount to lock it down vertically, so it got really wobbly at the top. But proof of concept is there!

      And Voltron appears to be missing his sun shield at the moment…I think I know who is responsible for that!

      • That’s a “Pilebunker” weapon, not a rocket punch.

        I was thinking something that acts like Mazinger Z’s signature attack. Maybe a mechanism that builds steam pressure in the forearm and fires the Warjack’s own fist at the enemy as a projectile.

        Oh, and maybe have an attached chain so that you can reel the fist back after firing it… haha.
