This campfire video was filmed whilst on our travels in the tropics of Southeast Asia. We were a couple of hundred feet from the beach and our guesthouse was happy for us to light the campfire. Despite the warm weather we still enjoyed being around a fire, thanks to the tropical location.
The footage was filmed in 4K Ultra HD and has been down-scaled to Full HD. This means excellent detail which is especially noticeable on bigger screens. The MP4 video is 20 minutes long and the screen savers are 3 minutes long. We have looped the MP4 video as we were trying different angles and settings, but have used a “cross fade” technique to make it seamless. We also did this just before the end so that the loop point for the MP4 will be smoother.
The Campfire video is fairly simple with the surroundings blocked out. The reason for this is that the camera we had with us for filming in this tropical region was designed for daytime scenes. We had another one which we gave away as a screensaver to previous customers because the video wasn’t great.
There are also two more videos taken at this campfire which include the surrounding logs. However they do have noise/grain in the video so we shall give these away as a free campfire screensaver to customers instead (we give freebies when sending out our occasional newsletters to previous customers as a thank you). We recently purchased one of the top nighttime cameras (the Sony 7s) so we shall work on a campfire video with full surroundings at some point too.
