How to Achieve the Film Look with Your DSLR
The whole film vs digital debate has been raging on for decades now. I’m old school and LOVE the look of film but I also love the power and speed of shooting digital. What’s an indie filmmaker to do?
Creating a convincing “film look” out of your DSLR or digital footage can be challenging and frustrating. Ever since digital video was invented there has always been someone trying to emulate the look of film. With technology changing so fast and becoming so powerful it is easier than ever to create a believable film look with almost any camera.
One of my favorite tools is FilmConvert, the best film stock emulator I’ve ever seen. FilmConvert enables you to add film color & grain to your video in a few simple clicks. With a range of market-leading cameras profiled, you can achieve precise, industry leading results even under the tightest deadline. This has become the industry standard for creating a convincing film look. I’ve been using it with my post production clients for a while now and I absolutely love it.
It’s so incredibly easy. I use it in DaVinci Resolve but it’s also compatable with Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Final Cut X, Motion, Scratch, AVID and comes in a Stand Alone App. Take a look at the video below and all will be explained.
