Sonic Boom 2012 Costume Contest by chemb0t Sonic Boom 2012 Costume Contest by chemb0t
Here's my share of the Sonic Boom experience.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>YOUTUBE LINK HERE<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

For those of you unfamiliar, Sonic Boom is a newly organized concert/mini convention event to celebrate the Sonic the Hedgehog series. This year it was held concurrently with San Diego Comic Con at the House of Blues, which is a short distance away from the main convention center. They had special guests from Sega and Sonic Team; Crush 40 and CashCash performed live and there was a Q&A and trivia contest with Steve Lycett (SUMO Digital) and Takashi Izuka (Sonic Team).

Finally, in the spirit of Comic con, there was a costume contest! There was a lot of creative work up on stage, and the crowd, as well as the special guests looked and sounded genuinely impressed. Congrats to everyone who participated, especially to :iconblazetbw: sporting the Mecha Sonic suit!

For more info on the event, check out this entry as well; [link]

Anyway, It was quite unplanned to capture this while I was there, so a lot of the footage came out shaky/blurry/grainy. However it proved to be a great test case for post-processing! I mean, the conditions were perfect (and by perfect, I mean the worst you can get); high fstop, no tripod, high iso, changing lighting conditions, etc.

I used the new Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 warp stabilizer to smooth out the jitters and fix rolling shutter distortion. To remove grain, I used the Neat Video plugin, which I was happy to discover was still compatible with CS6, and finally I did some quick color correction to boost the shadows and balance out the yellows. It took quite a while to encode but I think the results were worth the trouble.

It looks a bit wonky at full 1080p resolution, so I would recommend viewing at 720p for the best experience. Enjoy! =]
