Wow, that was actually really cool. I have never seen a video like that. At times it really looks like you are looking at a working model mini-magic kingdom.

That was a very cool video. I love messing around with fake tilt-shift when I get the pictures to do it with. They're so much harder to get right when they're taken at or close to ground level.

I'll resist my ego and not post mine. ;)

Well deserved ego on that Italian Job. ;) Now if you could get one with the train in it so that it looks like an HO set...

Gonch, I agree with janfrederick, I am also going to stroke your ego. That Italian Job shot is sweet. You probably got complimented in the previous thread but you deserve props.

Also how much do you think it cost Disney to produce that 'film'?

My guess is a day of labor plus however long it took to edit it together (maybe 6 to 7 hours). Of course I'm assuming they already had Photoshop, Premiere Pro (or Vegas, Final Cut, or any other decent video editing program/suite), and a decent camera (wouldn't even have to be a DSLR), and the recordable media for the camera. Considering it is Disney we're talking about, I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say its a pretty safe bet that they already had those things. :)

I'm pretty sure they're using real tilt-shift lenses. The differences are subtle, but you can tell. When you fake it, unless you're spending a lot of time coming up with masks that match the true depth to blur with, the blur/fake depth-of-field is too uniform.

Yeah, the video is almost certainly using actual tilt-shift lenses.

But it makes me wonder what the possibility is of taking true video (not a series of stills) applying the 'fake' technique to it? I wonder if you could get remotely comparable results.

Now you guys have me searching for tilt-shift lenses for my Sony Alpha. Why does CoasterBuzz tend to lead to searches for expensive things like lenses and vacations? Oh well, looks like a new lens is going right behind the Fender bass and amp. :)

If you have a Canon 5D Mark II or the forthcoming 7D (a step down, which isn't obvious given the model nomenclature), yes, you can shoot video. Or if you have a 35mm adapter rig for a video camera like mine (I like the Redrock Micro).

It's a ver slick video. For a sec there, I thought I was looking at a stop-montion miniture.

If you can't justify the expenditure for a tilt shift lens, you can rent one if you have a specific use for it. If you can't find a local place, there are several places online that rent lenses for Nikon and Canon. I have rented non-tilt-shift lenses online and it has worked very well. Lens arrived day before I needed it, put it in the box it came in with the return label they provided when I was done with it, dropped it off at UPS/Fedex and that was it. You can also do that if you are looking to buy a lens but not sure if its the right one for you.

I just know one step in Jeff's house and I would be in techno gadget heaven. Drool resistant floors would be a must.

Decisions, decisions.

And I'm looking for one less thing to have to pack up to move. Seems like it all adds up.

The clip just got uploaded to Disney's YouTube channel for those who want to embed it -- or catch it in HD:
