video #portfolio: Two platforms, one artist | Duas plataformas, um artista

Shot two videos with Nuno Prata, hosted in Vimeo and YouTube. Main differences:

  • Youtube was faster, has more virality;
  • Vimeo looks better, takes longer to make the video available for free accounts;

I believe they can be used side by side, depending on your goal: for portfolio purposes I prefer Vimeo, but to get the message out quickly I’d use YouTube, which is a service most people relate to.

What are your other favorite video hosting services of choice?


Fiz dois videos com o  Nuno Prata, alojei um no Vimeo e outro no Youtube. Diferenças:

  • o YouTube é mais rápido, tem mais viralidade;
  • o Vimeo tem melhor aspecto, mas com contas gratuitas demora mais tempo a disponibilizar o video;

Acho que ambos podem ser usados em simultâneo, depende é do vosso objectivo: para portfolio prefiro o Vimeo, mas para passar a mensagem depressa usaria o YouTube, que é um serviço com que a maioria das pessoas está mais à vontade.

Que outros serviços de alojamento de video preferem?

…and never forget these thoughts:

So what’s the trick to getting good?

Initially getting it all right is going to take time. You resist using a tripod cause it takes time to set up. In the field you think audio sounds great – you can hear it okay in your headset. And you can see your subject so the light must be fine. Right? WRONG! Don’t rush through your story and cheat your audience. They (and you) deserve your best every single day…every single shot. At first you’ll feel as if you have a weight attached to you. Time…time…time…it takes time to get each of these elements done properly. Time to take out the sticks and set them up. Time to check out the light and move your sticks over a bit to get better light or pull out the stand light and umbrella and find an outlet and light your subject. Time to attach the mike and check audio levels. Time to really look at the story and get more than the obvious shots. Time to see the details that will really impact the audience. Time to think and do it right.



Video: Artista em Residência | Resident Artist #portfolio

Another video for Tubo d’Ensaio, this time about our artist in residence. It’s an institutional video, so editorial options are a bit different than the ones I’d make if it was journalism.

Anyway, it was a nice workout to develop my video interviewing skills.

Watch other videos I made for Tubo d’Ensaio at their Vimeo channel.

Mais um vídeo para o Tubo d’Ensaio, desta vez sobre o nosso artista residente. É um vídeo institucional por isso as opções editoriais são diferentes do que se fosse jornalismo.

De qualquer forma, foi um bom exercício para desenvolver as minhas capacidades nas entrevistas em vídeo.

Vejam outros vídeos que fiz para o Tubo d’Ensaio.




New video | Novo video

Video I made using a 60d and a H4n.

It’s about  the 5th anniversary of an independent arts center that just moved to a new place, and their evolution and goals through the eyes of the leader of the project.

I’ll use this footage to try other narratives and format. Stay tuned.

Video feito com a 60d e o H4n.

É sobre o 5º aniversário de um centro inpendente de artes que acabou de se mudar para umas novas instalações e a sua evolução e objectivos vistos pelo líder do projecto.

Vou usar ainda estas imagens para testar outros tipos de narrativas e formatos. Estejam atentos.

Video: Teaching the drums

This Sunday was spent editing a video for a multimedia package I’m doing about an independent cultural centre. My subject is Filipe, the drum teacher, and he gets to show off a bit.

The gear used was the 60D, audio by the H4N, and edited in sturdy but insufficient computer with Premiere CS4 an After Effects. The drums sound great, but the interview has that common hiss in these HDSLR, but I think I figured how to get the levels right next time. I probably went a bit overboard with color correction, maybe it’s too dark.

Let me know what you think, and wait for the coming videos and developments of this project.
