I found Moonlight to have below average cinematography.
Many shots were soft or out of focus entirely, and the opening scene was very poorly executed. It reminded me of a student who has just discovered an easy-rig, and then wants to film every subject by spinning around it to show how "smooth" it is. Very amateurish and distracting.
The water scene was also poorly done. It was a great idea, but the characters were hardly in the frame, and it seemed as if the camera operator was really struggling to get the shot.
There was some excellent lighting in the night scenes, and some inventive car photography, but the insistence on shooting everything at T2.0 or faster, without being able to keep focus, completely took me out of the movie and called too much negative attention to the camera work.
Will they force consumers to use their "brave" proprietary headphones in order to watch the content?
Just get a used C100 Mark II, a 24-105, a shotgun mic, and call it a day. That setup will get you through almost any documentary scenario.
The other dSLR options, while they have great quality, are a pain to actually work with. The name "franken-rig" didn't come out of nowhere.
How cool that in an age of 8K cameras, there is actually enough increase in demand for Kodak to resurrect a discontinued film. It's a great time to be an image maker.
Great interview and a nice introduction to Aaron Ohlmann's work.
Available for sale....nowhere. Just like the FS7 kit: looks great, but nobody sells it. What's the point?
