Feathers Flying
 
Official music video for "Feathers Flying" from the Homeless Balloon EP "Dream Away". The video was shot on a beautiful winter's day at Sognsvann in Oslo on December 27, 2012. Norwegian families love to go skiing in the woods, and no child is too young to join. All photos and video were shot with the iPhone5 and edited in FinalCutPro by Helge Krabye.

Order and Chaos Our Galaxy
 
The animations were created with ArtMaticPro and ArtMaticVoyager as 1280x720 and Animation (a video compression codec with almost no loss of quality - and of course huge file size). In order to be able to work with these files on my MacBookPro 2,33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and FinalCutPro 6.02, I first converted the video files with QuickTimePro to the format Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), another compressed format with very little loss of details. The sequence in FCP was 1280x720 HDTV 720p (16:9), square pixels and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) Quality 100% for the QuickTime Video Settings. After editing the video pieces together and adding text in FCP , I exported the sequence via Compressor. Below are the settings for the video file with the highest size and quality (this video is not included above, but here you have the settings if you want a great result on your AppleTV):
