And I kinda want one of these now. Burn some calories while pwning noobs.
Gearing up to shoot the kickstarter campaign video for the Omni tomorrow. Airplane hangers make great studio space!
After waiting for the camera for what seemed like a lifetime…and then flange calibration, I was finally able to put together my BMCC rig! I love the images, but I’m not very enamored with the engineer who decided to place all the inputs on the smart side of the camera, so I’ll have cables in my face whenever I do handheld! I was finally able to convince a producer/director to give it a shot, and will be busting it out on a doc style shoot tomorrow!
If anyone in the Houston TX area would like to bring one on their set, drop me a line. Soon enough I’ll have my MFT model, and 4k production camera!
Here is the first, of two videos I shot for No Label Brewery. If you’re in Texas, you should buy their beer. Love me some Pale Horse, Ridgeback, and Don Jalapeno…..yum. Seriously, find their beer, buy it, be happy.
All we needed were a few posters from Hot Topic.
Take a look, and check out a short spec commercial I recently made for www.mofilm.com. Click here!
Just read a great EOSHD article, on one of my favorite subjects…shooting with Lomo anamorphics. I love that they kept the 3:56 unsqueezed ratio, very ballsy move. Can’t wait to see this film!
So the other day I came across this Shane Hurlbut blog post. In college I experimented with stretching a stocking over the rear element of a Fujinon video camera lens to try to emulate the S16mm look that I fell in love with. In the near future I’ll be shooting some re-creations for a feature doc, and thought that it might be worth doing a quick test.
I just bought the cheapest pair of black stockings at the store, and applied some trusty gaff tape. I had a hard time getting the net stretched enough on the 22mm (as you will see) so the effect is a bit too much, but on 35mm and up it looks alright. It was near impossible to get a stocking on the rear of my 75mm lens, so we only go up to 50mm. I’ll get some double sided tape, and some varying strengths of stocking for further tests if the doc director is interested in looking in to it further. I felt lazy and didn’t set up a backlight on her, which would have been nice for the footage I converted to B&W.
Award winning new short from Terry Gilliam, and shot by my favorite one-eyed DP Nicola Pecorrini!
Ever pondered that age old question: who would win in a fight, Popeye or a gang of mummies? Well my friend, it has finally been answered.
