Looking at the HD trailer for Dr. Strange on Youtube, all the scenes seemed to have very soft focus. Lack of adequate lighting? Not utilizing smaller apertures?. The larger the sensor, the better the low light capability, but the shallower the depth of field and the more difficult it is to create a sharp focus.
Welles was master of the long cut. Just saw the trailer and the super fast cuts made me dizzy. If the whole movie is cut like that it would be unwatchable for me.
Interesting clips, well acted and captured/edited. Reminds me of Stanley Kubrick in many ways. These seem like clips to be incorporated into a story, with dialogue. Standing alone they are a collection of interesting fragments.
Didn't make sense to me at all. And the author's clip after "Picasso-ing it up" was hand held and shaky. Not something I could watch.
Didn't see any controls on the built in video player so I downloaded the two segments to let me pause and replay some of the parts. An excellent presentation that seemed to promote the idea that anything higher than HD resolution is wasted because it can't be seen. On the other hand, for the pixel peepers with the money, Part 2 was almost a commercial for the Alexa65 which just blew every other film and digital camera away, regardless of MP count.
Agreed. I do it for the fun of doing it, the creative challenge. I post my videos on youtube. If I get 30 views or 5,000 it's the same to me. I don't monetize or want to make any money on them. It's a hobby and in the true sense of the word I'm an amateur, one who does the work for the love of doing it.
