Six Apart Japan 5th Anniversary Party from Joichi Ito on Vimeo.

Today was the fifth anniversary of Six Apart Japan. I had to talk about how it all started and tell funny stories about Nob.

I decided to try to shoot people for today's video. I experimented with timing my transitions with music. I used Garage Band to make the "music".

I was using the cheesy random loops as a place holder and was going to try to do a real track, but I ran out of steam for the night...

Also, some of the colors seem blown out and the white balance seems a bit off. I guess I need to start looking into either white balancing more properly in the camera or post processing the color.

I wonder how long I can keep this one video a day thing going...

I used a Canon 5D Mark II with a 85mm f/1.2 lens. Shot in 1080i, edited with Final Cut Express, exported to 720p. Music made with Garage Band.

Make sure you watch the video in "HD" mode.


Nob told me he had a crush on Champagne, and it seems like it's for real. Congratulations for this great anniversary to SAKK. Looking forward to the five next ones.

I just had mine delivered today. I took this video 2 minutes after unboxing it. 50mm 1.2 lens.

As I said in another post - we should make a CC licensed movie with may photographers using 5d Mk II only. Get Canon to pony up some $ :-) and get CC licensing marketed.

I volunteer to co-edit.


I'll see if I can ask Canon. ;-)

Have you seen? Your video still and a quote are in this article.
