Here is my attempt at video of my display for 2006. Or at all. I never have video taped my display before.
This was done after all the TOT's had left using a Canon elura 100 MiniDV camera which according to reviews had the best low light recording for the 300 dollar range. I am no videographer. I also used an external stereo microphone and dubbed no audio into this video (as you can tell by the nice police siren about half way thru). LOL.
Oh well. And Yes I added the old film effect, the camera doesnt suck that bad. heh
Its about 5 minutes long. Its in widescreen format and 18MB. Enjoy. No laughing please
Wow! Great nightime video Krough. I love the 16x9 format and film effects. Your props look fantastic. I laughed at the siren but I like the fact you used the real audio. That camera really did a nice job in the low light. My night video taken with my old Sony was just unusable. I'm going to look for a new video camera this year. I'll have to check out the Canon models.
Great job on your video. It will make a nice addition to the Hauntforum DVD this year.
I'd have really loved to see that in person. The video captured the mood perfectly.Did you actually get any TOTs following the candy sign? If I was a kid, I'd have thought twice about it.
Ah well. just one more reason to have you as the premier haunter in my book.
I was hoping to see the witch in the video. Thanks Krough. I love the witch's cabin idea. I guess it is a good thing you didn't fall in love with Christmas instead of Halloween. I know, I said Christmas.
Looks excellent krough. I hope you did a non-widescreen version for the DVD as well. Trying to put widescreen stuff on the same disc as non-widescreen stuff using the software I have causes problems.
Another bit of advice (for use on the HauntForum DVD) is if you can save it to a format other than the WMV format would be best. A DVD-Quality MPEG-2 file works the best. WMV files tend to be super-compressed and small enough in resolution that they look really fuzzy on a TV screen. I can use the WMV file, but just keep in mind that it probably won't look terribly sharp.
Either way, excellent work on the video. The low-light mode on that camera does appear better than most I've seen. The video usually turns out so choppy that it's unusable, but not so with yours.
I liked the video krough.... the thunder and lightning really set it off well... it's great that the audio was all of the haunt - mine wasn't loud enough to give the video much atmosphere so I added the halloween theme.
