A Unique Property Video of A Unique Australian Estate

Published: 09/06/2011
By: larry

Here is the latest property video from Brett Clements and crew of Propvid Australia.

This is not your average property video. It's much longer than most. Feature length compared to most property videos (7:38). But if you've been following Brett and crew you probably didn't expect them to do an average propvid. Just when you think you have them figured out, they will totally surprise you. This bunch is totally outside the box most of the time.

But Linnaeus Estate on Byron Bay is a very special property which needs a longer than normal story.

Check out the use Brett and crew make of the Canon 17mm tilt/shift to get very selective focus. As Brett says, "... the 17mm tilt shift lenses were fired for effect".

  1. Interesting use of the tilt shift, some of the selective focus made me think of Lens Baby shots. Do many people use the miniature effect the tilt shift lens can give you? I think it would work for 'story book' properties. You can achieve it in Photoshop

    I personally thought the simulated film leader technique became distracting through over use. Some nice time-lapse with camera moves makes me wonder what the budget was for this video since that is very time intensive. Overall I think this is an interesting shoot and wouldn't it be nice if we all could do this.

  2. I really like that video. I saw the length and was skeptical. But it’s well done and for such a property like that, the location and history are so important that giving it that extra time could make that place sell. I personally felt there was a little too much T/S going on.

  3. @Greg- Yes, I agree I found the simulated film leader distracting too... took me a while to figure out what it was.
