Interview with underwater cameraman Marcelo Rodrigues

Continuing with the Underwater Cameraman Series, this time I’m presenting Marcelo Rodrigues, a biologist that started with scuba diving during his biology thesis and became a passion since then. Marcelo works as a videographer and travels around the world whenever he can, filming the underwater world. Thank you Marcelo for the interview, I’m looking forward to your next diving video in Maldives.

Beware The Pain Fairy Commercial – Behind the Scenes

This is a Behind the Scenes made by Dave Dugdale from LearningDSLRVideo.com. Sterling-Rice Group (an ad agency in Boulder CO) was kind enough to let me film BTS footage of their “Pain Fairy” ad spots. Dave used a Canon T2i/550D to film this about 3 months ago. I also used Luke Neumann’s color presets on most of these shots.

You can watch two of the commercials below – they were shot on the Canon 5D Mark II.

“Ocean” An underwater film by Sarosh Jacob

A few months ago I started my PADI lessons in Cebu, Philippines. I discovered diving and I love it! Last week I finished my lessons in Switzerland and now I’m ready to go!  I’m presenting here the film “Ocean” filmed and edited by Sarosh Jacob. He shot in Bonaire and Palau during 2011 and he used a Canon 5D mark II with a Sigma 15mm fisheye and an Aquatica housing. I’ll post some other videos about underwater filming and maybe later I’ll post one of my own! If you would like to post an underwater video on Cameraman.com just let me know.

Night Motion Timelapse by Daniel Lowe

Another amazing timelapse made by filmmaker and cinematographer Daniel Lowe.

There are two shots of the Stumpy Point wildfire that has been burning in eastern North Carolina, U.S. for some time now. Most of the shots have wisps of smoke in the air from this fire. The lighthouse is Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest in North America.

The light streaks you see in the Milky Way shots are shooting stars, no airplanes this time. Shooting stars & meteors happen all the time all over planet Earth; you can’t see them except in the darkest skies. Especially look for them right before dawn (in the film & real life), they seem to increase in frequency at that time.
