My background as videographer
I have been an amateur videographer since when I got my first 8 mm film camera in 1962, when I was 15 years old. I passed through all the evolving technologies: super 8 film with sound, Panasonic video camera with backpack VHS recorder, 8mm camcorder, Hi8 camcorder, Digital 8 camcorder and finally HD digital camcorder. I used all sort of editing, from splitting the film and pasting it together with transparent tape, to analogue VHS editing to non linear editing with a Mac and Final Cut Express. Now I use Apple’s Final Cut Pro X on a Mac Pro. Here there are some examples of my work during the years.
Video editing of 30 years of vintage video footage with Final Cut Pro X on a Mac Pro.
Raw source footage: old photos, 8 camcorder, VHS tapes.
HD video taken with a Sanyo Xacti camera, editing with Final Cut Pro X on a Mac Pro.
8mm camcorder. Edited with Final Cut Express. One day visit to the island of Capri, starting from Naples with a guide that took us through “aliscafi”, boats, Blue Grotto, buses, Anacapri, taxis, trails, good lunch and beautiful scenery. Definetly worth the few euro we paid for his services!
