    This is the results from our first MōVI shoot after receiving our M10 about 2 weeks ago.

    Was shot in about 6hrs on a hot December day here in Perth, Australia. Christmas and swimwear is probably not a common theme for those of you in the northern hemisphere, but hot days at the beach are very much the 'picture of Christmas' down here.

    The shoot is for a local modelling agency over here. Was directed and edited by a member of their creative team.

    Was really good fun to try shots we've seen in all the demos, and apply the tech knowledge acquired at the November Owner's Training session in Woodinville WA.

    The first shot in the sequence was our third take after a solid hour of blocking through the shots.

    All the exteriors were just "run-n-gun" style shots we made up as we went.

    Looking forward to refining the MōVI skills over the holiday.

    Nice job! Umm, can I be your assistant on the next one? :)

    How did you keep your shots walking on the sand so steady?

    Got any pix of your rope rig for the end shot?

    Love the beginning.. Great job!

    Michael nice job. Great seamless shots and well synched. And compared to Colorado at 10F I need a road trip to sun...

    Thanks Justin & Gary

    Not sure why beach shots were so steady, must just be the MōVI working hard!

    End shot was not a rope shot, just a hand off from a guy on the ground to a guy on a small platform ladder.. Basically a reverse of the move at the start of the film (Hand off from ladder to ground)

    Also forgot to mention, shot on Blackmagic Cinema Camera w Tokina 11-16 @ 11mm...

    Camera was recording 2.5K RAW and all shots were natural light, except for the studio lights used as 'props' for the first part of the opening shot.

    We went for this camera and lens combo so we could set a hyperfocal and not worry about pulling focus (Our FF had not arrived yet).
