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:
- Shot on an iPhone 4, handheld, at 720p
- Imported into MacBook Pro
- Edited in iMovie, using image stabilisation. Analysed for stabilisation on import.
- 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).
