First weekend with the GH4
Took a trip out into the forest to see how the GH4 performs during low- and daylight. Quick edit in iMovie. Filmed in the woods and streets of Norway - Hadeland and Oslo. 4K and 96fps shots, with the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 and a Metabones Nikon to m4/3 Speedbooster. ISO never higher than 800 to reduce noise. LOVING the camera so far! GH4 settings: CineV -5, -5, -5, -5. -2,+2 Highlight/Shadow. Song: Dawn Golden - All I Want

One of the worlds most beautiful knives - 4K/GH4
I filmed one of the beautiful $2000 dollar Kai chef knives, a seriously powerful tool. The movie is inspired by this concept of a delicate and powerful instrument.

GH4 Slow motion Sharpness Settings
You'll get a much sharper image with a high shutter speed. Might not be smart while doing a lot of camera movement, but it's great while the camera stays still on a tripod. The higher shutter speed also removes any dust particles on your sensor. I was also looking for an increase in quality in the 60fps 200mbps footage vs the 100mbps footage, but I really can't see any.

Closer / GH4 - 4K
I took my GH4 to a scientific museum and shot some 4K and 96fps slowmo. They were having a lego-event, but everything else was much more interesting. Not much footage, but I played around with it in Final Cut Pro X and experimented with mirrors and kaleidoscopes. Turns out a teslacoil plays pretty nice with the latter. Lumix GH4 settings: Filmed in Cine V, -5, -5, -5, -5. Highlights/Shadow -2, +2. Wide angle 10-20mm Sigma f.4-5,6 (way too dark, and the reason I went with the crushed blacks). Song: Múm - We have a map of the Piano (shortened).

Three Months of Dark - GH4 Low Light
Norway is dark during it's winter months. So dark that only a handful of hours each day are granted daylight. These are usually office hours, so you travel to and from work in darkness. Making films without light can be tricky, but this is my attempt at conveying some of the mood from our city during this time. Youtube really tore this video a new one because of the compression in all the dark scenes. You can download the original version from my vimeo site her: https://vimeo.com/113767907 Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH4 / 4K / 96fps Metabones Speedbooster Lenses: Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 Nikon 50mm f1.4 (Main lens) Panasonic 45-200mm f4-5,6 CineV with different setting. Mostly -4 saturation, +3 noise reduction, -5 contrast. Master Pedestal +3. Music: The Lennon Sisters - My Favorite Thing

Nat "King" Cole - Hold my hand (78 rpm 10" gramophone)
The Oscar nominated song "Hold my hand", written by Richard Meyers & Jack Lawrence, was thrown in with my purchase of this gramophone. I had no idea what song it was and was just glad to get something to play. It turned out to be a beautiful song that helped boost a low budget movie's ticket sales drastically and land itself in the top charts in the 50s. The sound is a bit scratchy, just as it should be. Not a religios man myself, but the words are beautiful non the less. So this is the kingdom of heaven So this is the sweet promised land While angels tell of love, don't break the spell of love Hold my hand So this is the garden of Eden In dreams it was never so grand Let's never leave again, Adam and Eve again Hold my hand This is the secret of what bliss is For bliss is what your kiss is At last I understand So this is the kingdom of heaven And here on the threshold we stand Pass through the portal now, we'll be immortal now Hold my hand So this is the kingdom of heaven And here on the threshold we stand Pass through the portal now, we'll be immortal now Hold my hand Hold my hand Enjoy.

Coma boy - an animated short
A boy finds himself more attracted to his own trippy coma than his real life. A personal project made some years ago, to the amazing music of The Mars Volta (Asilos Magdalena). I did not know that this story was pretty much identical to the story from The Mars Volta's first album, which is somewhat scary - and even more cool.

GH4 Noise Reduction with Photon Pro
Hi internet, I wanted to show you how to make save some of those noisy GH4 shots. After trying out a few filters (for the love of god, stay away from the Pixel Film Studios one), I found many of them to only be fancy blur-filters, doing little else than blending all pixels. This plugin, however, surprised me. The main focus of the plugin is to retain your sharp edges, and it handles very well indeed. It's easy to operate and cheap too. The only downside so far is that it's pretty heavy, and requires some time to chew out the footage. Pay attention to my friends beard at 0:31 when the plugin gets turned on. I go out of focus for a sec, but watch as the hairs retain their sharpness even though noise is otherwise dramatically reduced. It would be best for me to show you some static tripod footage, but I only had handheld footage to work with at the time. You can try it in a bright image like the one with the seagull, but here it smudges the fine detail in the feathers somewhat, so it's not ideal for images with diffuse patterns. And sadly, the youtube compression adds noise of its own in both this and the bus clip. All these shots are color corrected in FCPX, some of them pretty brutally, to produce excess noise, so that I can better show off the plugin. And just to clarify: I'm not being payed by the people who made this, I was just getting sick of bad plugins, and people kept asking me if I use any/how to reduce noise with their GH4. I found out that most of my shots don't really have the amount of noise people are complaining about, but with Photon Pro, I'm pretty sure I can live with the amount I'm getting. Cheers!

Longboard Panasonic HDC-SD900 Slow motion test
1080/50p reduced to 25fps in Premiere Elements. I spent days figuring out how to work with this 50p format and how to slow it down smoothly. The easilest way I can tell you is to import your video file into premiere elements 9, and in the video properties, slow it down to 50%. Frame blending might make motion even smoother according to some. Exporting is hell though. The Panasonic records in AVCHD-format, a format that the mac somewhat hates. I did not find a single mac program that could handle the 50fps footage, so I had to resort to boot camp and windows. This video has gone through 3 exports, and lost some quality. Most scenes are raw footage, one has color grading and one has black and white. Hope this helps! PS: If you are going to use the 50p footage on a mac, get the program "Handbrake". This program easily converts the video to m4v without loss of quality. You probably won't get to slow down the footage smoothly though. The song is Scattered Trees - Five Minutes.
