Thanks Luke for your review. I've been a subscriber of your Youtube channel for a long time and appreciate all the tips you pass on.
For those that saw it in 120fps what did you think of the movie?
Wow. What a great interview! Loved the stories and couldn't agree more about the dislike for shaky came. A lot of technology changes quickly in film-making and it's great to see how much current Steadicams resemble the gear he used on Rocky.
My BMCC has been pretty rock solid. I mostly record in Prores and find the format great for doing color correction. If I'm not sure of the exposure or color balance then I may record in RAW. As others have mentioned the audio is terrible - you will have to record audio with another system. The picture is so much closer to the cinematic image of an Alexa and RED than it is a DSLR, especially with a good LUT. One thing I wish it had was high frame rates. If I were to invest again in a narrative camera I would probably get a BM Ursa Mini or a used RED. It will be a while before you outgrow those cameras.
Having an easy way to manage and use LUTs with Final Cut X makes editing so much easier. I've only used Color Grading Central LUT Utility and found it, along with some of their film stock grades, essential to using LOG footage.
I think I counted 42 awards that were handed out and there were about 60 or 70 films. If you go to Sundance you have a very good chance of getting something.
