When I asked Marc Anthony Thompson if I could use a butchered version of his song Kiss Me as the background music for this video, he said:
Of course you can use Kiss Me.
You can flip it over, play it backwards, unearth the Satanic gems, slow it down, speed it up, feed it currants, come in it’s mouth ( is that too far? ) -
all that to say:
Have your way with it and I look forward to seeing it and you soon.

A project from bureauofcommongoods.com, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.
Our fifth film turns to bike maker Ezra Caldwell (Fast Boy Cycles), who was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. When the cancer threatens to shatter his love of bikes, Ezra survives by documenting his illness as thoroughly as his craft.
Canon 5D mark II with Magic Lantern nighty from 14. may and raw video module.
H.264 footage shoot with Cinestyle picture format.
RAW Workflow: extracted DNG sequence from the RAW file using ML’s RAW2DNG.exe. Opened all dng’s using in Camera RAW using Adobe Bridge. Graded image as flat as posible using contrast and exposure. Changed white balance slightly. Batch exported as 14bit PSD files. Imported PSD’s in Premiere Pro CS 5.5 as image sequence. -I’m new at working with RAW, so any tips or improvements to my workflow is welcome.
It usually starts to drop frames somewhere between 150 to 250 and only gets worse from there. (You can see it starts to drop frames at the end of this footage.) Still impressed by what they’ve been able to do with this so far. I’m hoping they’ll have a usable build in the somewhat near future. I’d love to be able to use this for a project :)
Will this damage your sensor? Short answer: NO. nofilmschool.com/2013/05/magic-lantern-canon-dslr-raw-video-sensor/?utm_campaign=twitter&utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitter

Shot handheld so please excuse shakiness
Shot at 1880x720 cause i was getting frame drops when trying 840 vertical. Used a 32GB SanDisk Extreme Pro CF card.
Used Raw2DNG to create DNGs, imported DNG sequences in After Effects, created movie proxies and exported as a lossless Quicktime.
Imported into Premiere Pro for editing, exported with H.264 using media encoder
Huge props to Magic Lantern
First test with raw video on 5dmk2 (with 14 Mai nightly Magic Lantern)
Shot in 1880x720@25p 14bit with 35mm Zeiss ZF f5.6 and VariND and 90mbit/sec SanDisk Extreme Pro.
Converted with RAW2DNG and then with AFX to DPX Full-range Log, graded with resolve and exported to ProRes 422HQ.
Please download the file to really judge the image quality (vimeo compression sucks).
quick test shot with a cheap plastic tourist tripod. It’s so widescreen because this was shot on 1920x720px RAW - the fastest a Sandisk 60MB/sec CF card would let me shoot without dropping frames. Processed with Adobe camera raw in AE
This is a quick night and dynamic range test of the new compiled Magic Lantern for the 5D Mk III vs factory default.
Camera: Canon 5D Mark III with SanDisk Extreme Pro 90 MB/s CF card
Lens: Sigma 24mm f1.8
Color profile: Standard
Note: This is still an alpha software. Hiccups and errors are expected. Try with caution.
My Advice, Pt. 1 - Daniel Pemberton (From the soundtrack of Little Big Planet - The Game)
This is a quick test of the new compiled ML for the 5D Mk III vs factory default and the GH3.
Notice that the red lines on each window of the construction building are actually red fences that only appear in the ML setup. I’m amazed that Magic Lantern actually increased the sharpness and details of the video.
Based on my observation the ML comes first followed by GH3 then default Mk III setting at last place.
