Art vs Reality.
I know that the trend in DSLR video production is toward the cinema/film look. But I was recently involved in shooting b-roll for a proposed reality show sizzle. My camera settings were the typical low contrast, low sharpness, low saturation settings......to get that "film look". What I didn't know, was that there were no plans to grade the final product. So all my footage that was used was very flat in comparison to the rest of the presentation, which was shot on Sony ENG cam's. So what I am thinking, is that there are plenty of situations that require sharp, high saturation, medium contrast settings.......comments?
