Matthew Lam Videographer – Hong Kong ⼯作流程分享
AsiaWPA 很開⼼可以邀請香港攝錄師 Matthew Lam 分享他近期的⼯作⼼得。
Matthew 從事 videography 已經第⼋個年頭，開始的 時候只是攝影的⼯作。後來， Matthew 覺得拍攝 video 更加能夠將故事的情節及情感豐富地表達出 來，因⽽ Matthew 之後⼀直 videography ⽅⾯發 展。現時 Matthew 拍攝⼯作的範疇，包括婚禮⽅⾯及 商業拍攝⽅⾯。 Matthew 剛剛在意⼤利 Como 城市拍攝了⼀場別開⽣⾯的婚禮。整個 videography 團隊⼀⾏四⼈， 在景致怡⼈的 Como 拍攝絕對是⼀件賞⼼樂事；⽽整個婚禮歷時四天，拍攝了的珍貴⽚段不計其 數。⽚段均需要⽤⾼質素的 4K 格式拍攝，每天⾄少有50、60GB 容量的⽚段。故此，對於 Matthew 來說，要妥善地記錄及備份所有拍攝⽚段，需有周詳的安排，絕不能掉以輕⼼。
對於 Matthew 來說，拍攝了的⽚段對⾃⼰及客⼾來說都是極度寶貴；作為專業攝錄師，必須要保障 拍攝的影⽚能夠無瑕地抄寫入記憶 咭，並且之後能夠順利傳輸出去作 備份。 Matthew 及他的團隊拍攝時使⽤的 記憶咭，主要是 SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-II 及 SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I 記憶咭。兩 者皆可⽀援 4K ⽚段拍攝，⽽前者⽀ 援更⾼的讀寫速度。Matthew 他認 為必須使⽤穩定及讀寫速度快捷的 記憶咭，防⽌拍攝及抄寫備份的時 候有任何問題發⽣。
在婚禮拍攝當天，Matthew 有⼀位專屬同事負 責確保每⼀張記憶卡都是妥善存放；拍攝了的 記憶咭不會與未使⽤的記憶咭混合在⼀起。儘 管⾝處異地，拍攝完結當晚，Matthew 都會為 每⼀個 video ⽚段作兩⾄三個的備份。
從記憶咭輸出的時候，Matthew 會使⽤快捷⼜ 穩妥的讀咭機，確保傳輸及備份的時候不會發 ⽣任何問題。 由於在外地拍攝的時候，需要帶備的器材已經 很多，故此 Matthew 亦會攜帶輕便的儲存裝 置。其中他特別推介使⽤的是最新的 SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD。這個⼩⼩的⾼速裝置，可⽅便在 ⼯作時即場作出備份，⽽其速度亦⾜夠任何即時要做剪接的⼯作。在外地拍攝⼯作的時候可能發⽣突發的 情況，幸好這個裝置防⽔防震的特性，令到 Matthew 更加安⼼帶備這個裝置作為備份及即時剪接的⼯具。 拍攝完成之後，便是製作多份完整備份及剪輯的⼯作。Matthew 會在下⼀期分享更多他的⼯作流程⼼得。

Matthew Lam Videographer – Hong Kong
AsiaWPA is very happy to invite Hong Kong videographer Matthew Lam to share about his recent shooting experience.
Matthew has been working in the videography industry for over eight years. He first started working as a photographer. Very soon thereafter, Matthew wanted to capture a story and people’s emotion from more different angles, and therefore decided to jump into videography. Matthew now shoots both weddings and commercial projects, and has become one of the up-and-coming videographers in Hong Kong. Matthew has just returned from Lake Como in Italy shooting a stunning wedding, which lasted from four days. His videography team for this project consisted of a videography team of four people. It’s great fun to shoot in the scenic Lake Como. Given the days of the wedding and the beautiful scene there, Matthew and his team took a lot of beautiful video shots. All video clips were taken at high-quality 4K format, with at least 50 to 60GB of video clips per day. Therefore, for Matthew and his team to properly record and backup all the video footage, they have followed a careful workflow, which must not be taken lightly.
The captured video clips are extremely valuable to Matthew and the wedding client. As a professional videographer, during shooting it is of utmost importance to ensure that all the recorded video content were copied to their memory cards properly, and could then in turn be transmitted to backup copies, without any slight error. Matthew and his team mainly use SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-II and SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I memory cards. Both models support 4K video shooting, while the former “Pro” version allows even faster read and write speed. Matthew believes that it is necessary to use ultra stable and fast memory cards, to avoid any possible problems during shooting and making backups.
During shooting of an actual wedding, Matthew has a dedicated team member who is responsible for ensuring that each memory card is properly located; the recorded memory cards must not be mixed with those blank memory cards. Even at a destination wedding, Matthew always ensure that there are two to three backups of all video clips duly made when he goes back to hotel at night. When copying data from memory cards to computers and hard drives, Matthew always uses a quality card reader to ensure that no problem occurs during data transfer and backup.
Since there are already a lot of equipment to be taken for overseas shooting projects, Matthew always brings along his portable storage devices. Amongst them, he specially recommends the latest SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD. This small high-speed device makes it easy to make backups at the field, and its speed is satisfactory for any editing work that needs to be done immediately. What’s more, the waterproof and shockproof features of SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD offer comfort and assurance to Matthew during his overseas work.
In Matthew’s workflow, the next steps would be making backups and video editing. He will share more about all these in the next issue.
