Tech sh*t...

These videos were shot with two video cameras: my Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR fitted with a Røde VideoMic and a Beachtek DXA-SLR Mini audio adapter, and my GoPro HD Hero2. The Canon 5DMII was shot hand-held; the GoPro was mounted high on a roof post, stage right. Video post-processing was done in Adobe Premier Pro CS6, audio post-processing was done in Adobe Audition CS6.

For each finished video, one 5DMII and one GoPro video track was imported and combined using Premier Pro's "Create Multi-Camera Source Sequence..." function, and then opened as a new timeline sequence for editing.

This was my first extended attempt at shooting hand-held with no shoulder or steadicam rig whatsoever: just the 5DMII, the mic, and the DXA-SLR in one seven-pound lump. This resulted in footage that was pretty rough, to put it mildly. I salvaged what I could of the 5DMII footage by using Adobe Premier Pro's Warp Stabilizer effect, which is pretty magical.

The fixed GoPro HD Hero2 did just great, except that the subjects were in full shadow while the background was very, very severely fully-lit as the sun set, resulting in footage that had very badly blown-out highlights. Here, Premier Pro's Shadow/Highlight effect was helpful, but couldn't work miracles.

The audio from both cameras was used, but I had to pull each audio track out into Adobe Audition and save and re-import as two separate audio files to de-couple the audio from the 5DMII video for cutting purposes. The two separate audio tracks were adjusted for gain individually, and the master output was adjusted to roughly a -6.0 db finished level.
