Short Film- Dusty Tales, The Charcoal Factory Of Kuala Sepetang

Dusty Tales- The Charcoal Factory of Kuala Sepetang is a short film we made of the peaceful town and the rigorous work it takes to harvest mangrove and turn them into charcoal.

Most people here in Malaysia will remember the gentle warmth of the charcoal fire and the aroma that precedes a delicious traditional breakfast.

In between teaching my videography class, I got to film many memorable scenes of the charcoal factory

Well, it’s time you knew where the charcoal that roast your coffee and toast your kaya-butter sandwich come from.

This is a pet project that I shot during a Sony organized field trip with my students.

Most of the film was shot with the Sony A99. Two other clips in the film was shot with an A57, which was mounted onto a Skyler Minicam stabilizer.

Sony Malaysia generously provided my students with cameras and organized this field trip.

We edited the film and color graded all shots with Edius. The fantastic thing about Edius is its ability to accept almost any video format and happily play it in realtime with any rendering/transcoding. We just had to concern ourselves with crafting our little film.

Grass Valley's Edius editing program made it easy to edit a wide variety of video formats.

Directing talents (actors and actresses) is a challenging but rewarding job. We feel it’s always important to:
1) Maintain a professional attitude.
2) Show them how you want them to act.
3) Always keep them in the loop.
4) Review their performance with them.
5) Encourage and guide.

Introducing Sony A99 on Alpha Day

During the recent Alpha Day, we showed off the video features of the A99. The A99 SLT (Single Lens Translucent) is Sony’s flagship full frame camera. The A99 boasts video specs that a videographer can be proud of.

Amongst the Sony A99 video specs we presented were:
1) AF-C (Autofocus- Continuous)
The A99 is the only camera based on an SLR design that can successfully autofocus. It does this by using Phase Detection technology, in contrast to Contrast Detection.

2) Clean, uncompressed HDMI output
When the A99 is connected via HDMI to an external hard disk, it is capable of transmitting an enhanced 4:2:2 High Definition video signal. This output is clean. Meaning, we need not worry about recording unwanted user interface display.

The Sony A99 SLT works great on the Steadicam Pilot, recording uncompressed HDMI video to Atomos Ninja2 external hard disk recorder.

3) XLR Adapter (XLR-K1M)
This adapter lets videographers record professional quality sound through XLR connections, giving them better quality audio. For more than 3 years, DSLR video shooters have been recording double system sound as HDSLRs are not up to the task. For many of us, this would be the deciding factor to get the A99.

4) Live Audio Level Adjustment
Just like a video camera, users can tweak their audio levels without having to stop recording. This function is used live, while users are shooting.

5) Full HD at 50 frames per second (1920 X 1080, 50p)
The A99 records full high definition videos at 50 fps, double the frame rate. It outperforms (at this time) all other DSLRs out there.

6) Silent Multi-controller
This knob was adapted from Sony’s video cameras. It lets users control (among other things) audio levels, focus and exposure settings. Its stealthy nature won’t end up being picked up by the camera’s mic.

7) Headphone Port
Now videographers conducting interviews can monitor audio by plugging a headphone into the A99′s headphone port. Combined with the XLR-K1M, users can now use their camera to record video and audio. No more double system audio and no more post-synching in post!

7) PAL or NTSC Switchable
Depending on which region you are in, you can record at your local TV station’s broadcast signal.

6) 3-way Tiltable LCD.
The 1228800-dot TFT display enables a videographer to position his/her camera at higher or lower angles without having to stoop or crouch to see the his shots.

8) Simultaneous Viewing Of Shots via LCD and Monitor
Unlike the competition, the A99 lets videographers view their shot on their HDMI monitor and the camera’s LCD. This is great on larger shoots where the director may wish to have the monitor to himself while the videographer uses the LCD. Previously on other brands, the camera’s LCD will shut off when an external monitor is connected to the camera.
