ReelDeal’s New Year’s Resolution
For 2014, the Computer Clan is doing something special with ReelDeal. We are going to be in transition. When we say resolution we mean that in more way than one. Let’s explain.
There are going to be some significant changes to the quality of our videos, and those changes spread across various attributes of video style and quality.
As of now, we produce in 720p, but now we are going to be moving most productions into 1080p HD, that’s 1920 x 1080 resolution. This will apply to videos that are informative presentations, such as our Bit Series videos, tutorials, animations, including intro/outro sequences, and especially live action footage, such as short films and Vintage Apple Tours. The only productions we foresee being problematic for 1080p are Computer Showdown Season 6.0, and GoSlo.
To achieve more of a film look, our videos will be presented in a 24 fps frame rate. This will mainly apply to live action footage, but for consistency, we can use this frame rate with all of our content.
For live action footage, our primary camera will be a Canon EOS 60D DSLR. This allows us to compose our shots a lot more professionally than consumer-level camcorders. We will be able to add depth of field looks, rack focus, and other stunning composition elements to our content.
For bigger live action productions, such as Ghost Murderer, our plan is to deliver our content in the 2.40:1 aspect ratio. In layman’s terms, that’s the super-wide aspect ratio you typically see in a movie theater. This is a goal of ours, but it has not yet been confirmed whether or not we’ll be able to do it.
Our Goal for 2014
Our goal is to achieve 24,000 subscribers on the ReelDeal channel by the end of 2014. We can’t wait to show you what we have in-store, and we hope you love it! This content will start rolling out when 2014 begins!
