Different frame rates - one documentary
What's up fellows,
I'll be shooting a surf movie and the cameras I'll use will be a GH4 and a 60D and the eventual GoPro shots. We're planning on doing lots of action shots as well as lifestyle and portrait/interviews.
There's something bugging me though, and I can't seem to find a definitive answer anywhere, as it seems like it's director's stylistic choice rather than anything else.
With that said, I've always liked the look of 24fps, but I don't think it's going to be wisest choice to shoot all the action in this frame rate, considering we'd have the option of shooting FHD 1080p with the GH4 as well as its 96fps slow mo option.
As you can see, a whole lot of different frame rates to choose from. I have access to Compressor, so there's always the option of conforming/converting everything to a single frame rate before editing.
- Which frame rates would you go for?
- Is working with different frame rates that big of a problem?
- Any examples of action (surfing) shot on 24fps?
Thanks a lot and let's shoot!
