Greatest Nature Video Photography with our Timelapse Technique

02 Jun

Recently we AC and Ang/Lucas put off work and went for a vacation after some heavy duty production for some multinational corporate. We make our journey back to gem island in Terengganu. A state up northeast of peninsular Malaysia. Having the thoughts and mood to relax and set work a side in a quiet and clear water island, we end out couldn’t resist to pick up our camera to produce another video. The nature and environment is just too irresistible. But this time we didn’t want to make another same old travel videolog. We found another way to portray our vacation. Its by Photographing… But its making photographs into a video. As the theory of 25 frames per seconds makes 1 seconds of video, we shot more than 5000 images to make this “Greatest” nature video. Suppose we are sleeping and relaxing ourselves in the calm resort, but in the end we spent our time up to late night to capture “stary nights” sun rise and by as people enjoying by the beach playing beach volley ball and swimming, we are setting up our cameras to catch the sun set. Again its the passion of cinematography in us that never want to allow a single beautiful moment just disappear.

Out technique of photographing are named timelapse photography. We capture a series of images to make it into a video later then in post production using various conversion and editing software. As the name goes, “timelapse’ is capturing object, environment changing habits as time flows. We shot more than 5,000 images spent more than 30 hours of photography time to achieve this video.

AC, Lucas  and team hope you will enjoy the nature of this Island from our camera lens.

Leaping A Step Ahead to try on Music Video Production

17 Feb

The idea of making music productions materials came when we all thought that there is a market out there for viewers. Viewers tend to watch music materials and share them very much often on social network sites i.e Facebook, myspace ect. We are lucky enough to have a singer/songwriter with us. So we venture into artist development and start to brand this artist that we have. Tommy T.Y. Chan. He is a singer, songwriter, music teacher and a guitarist. Instead of having his songs written and store it into a hard drive, we just thought of why not share the talent to the world.

Coincidence that he had wrote a Christmas song quite some time ago. And 2010 Christmas is just around the corner. So we made the decision to brand that particular song with a music video. As we all know, Music Video is a strong marketing tools for singer/musician. So we make sure we make it good.

We only use 2 days to shoot this Video. But it was a quality 2 days. With proper planning and creative thoughts on the shots arrangements and mood of the entire video. We pay close attention to details to make sure the mood and tone of the video matches the lyrics and rhythm. On Friday Night 18/12/2010, it was raining heavily and we only manage to start shooting at 11pm and we finally finish shooting at 2am, just for the few outdoor night lonely scene.

The Final video was completed today after 2 days of post production that involve editing pace, color grading and some minor visual effects (VFX). In the same time as we launch this video and song, we also made up a website for Tommy as an Artist Branding and his song could be downloaded at our web link at http://www.accmstudio.com/tommychan.html

Enjoy the Music TV, and AC Creations Wishing every one Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

 

Another Episode of AC’s Talk About done with world renown photographer Jeffry Lim

17 Feb

I was really excited when I get to know that my future father in-law is going to a best friend’s Photography exhibition. I heard of Jeffry Lim many times and I met him once at my future sister’s Inlaw’s wedding where he was the photographer for her at that time. Around 6pm we arrive BSC and saw this huge lobby covered with partition with Jeffry’s name on the partition, and we then start admiring his work. After a while he appeared and approach us. We started the conversation and before we left I did ask a favor to interview him and he agreed. I was really really excited and come back with my creative team the next day.

I was just thinking about doing a normal interview with him but it ends out being so much things to talk about as his words, pictures, work and life experience really inspired me in pursuing my dreams. Jeff was a humble and simple guy. Love to help others and love to bring joy to people he meet. His exhibition was really successful that many turn out to see his work and we were very lucky too as we manage to get a chance to listen to his presentation on every piece of his work in the exhibition hall. We document that all down in our videos.

The full version video is still in post production process and I’ll get it upload as soon as I could rush the video out. The interview session was very long as Jeff has too much inspiring words to tell audience…Stay Tune guys..

Below is some pics that we would love to share and a video preview
