At lunchtime today’s anti-cuts protest passed Estates Gazette’s offices in Holborn. I couldn’t resist nipping out to grab a little footage and see how quickly I could turn it around. Just two pieces of kit involved – my iPhone 4 and my MacBook Pro. This is the result:

Method:

  1. Shot on an iPhone 4, handheld, at 720p
  2. Imported into MacBook Pro
  3. Edited in iMovie, using image stabilisation. Analysed for stabilisation on import.
  4. Uploaded to Vimeo using tethered iPhone (on the 3 network)

Total time from import to online was under 30 mins. The major delay way the analysing for stabilisation on import, which accounted for nearly half of that time. I suspect I could have brought the time down significantly by only analysing the clips I actually used (the bus sequence at the beginning was much longer, and I suspect accounted for most of the 16 minutes analysis time).
