I had the rare opportunity to film in Ireland recently. My family and I were in Killarney for my brother's wedding. Although we didn't have much time to get out and explore, the few chances we did have were incredible. I was really excited to try out my new Konova K2 80cm slider  and I was able to run it through its paces on a rapid fire tour of County Kerry. I put together this video (mostly) on the flight home. 

Almost all the shots in the video were filmed on our last day in Ireland, which we tried to pack as much site seeing into as possible. Every shot was done in a rush and so that created a bit more work in post as I tried to realign shots that were not perfectly level, and adjust under/over exposed scenes. I also shot most of these scenes with the flat Cinestyle color profile from Technicolor. This was my first time shooting that flat on purpose and then trying to correct and grade everything in post. I learned a lot, but I'm not sure the film ends up "better" in the end. It may have been better to just shoot the best possible shot in camera and do less adjusting in post.

I plan to do a review of the slider I used in the near future so I won't say much here, except that the 80cm of slide was enough to get beautiful shots, and the slider itself was butter smooth in most cases. I'm very pleased with that purchase.

Equipment/Software List:
Camera: Canon T3i with Magic Lantern installed.
Filter: I used a variable ND Fader Filter on the bright sunny day (almost everything except shots at Muckross Abbey).
Slider: Konova K2 80cm with a ballhead mount.
Edited in Adobe Premiere CS6.
Color Corrected and Graded in Adobe After Effects CS6 with Magic Bullet Looks.

By the way, I brought more gear than I used, but everything fit in one small camera bag, plus the slider bag (which is about the size of a cheap tripod completely folded up). It was nice to pack light and be so mobile, especially since everything was shot in such a compressed time frame. Don't think you have to bring everything to shoot like this. Pack light, you'll shoot more.

I really like how you were very particular about the color grading in the film. It's one of the techniques directors utilize to put in meaning to their films. If the scene is sad, the director can put in less color. But if the scene is happy and vibrant, the color of the scene can be sort of like glowing. It really depends on the artistic taste of the director.
