This is exactly why we as film makers can't appreciate amazing work like this, because we can clearly see this is 2 different images put together therefore making it "fake". I knew it was fake right away because I shot time-lapses in a couple of the same spots a few months ago, but it still put a smile of amazement on my face at the idea this person created because it looked amazing. Anyone who isn't a film maker wouldn't know this was 2 images masked together, and would only see what is in front of their eyes
Does anyone know how I can achieve the "Faded Film" look without having Creative Cloud? Sorta like what VSCO cam does with their "Fade" effect for photos
Holy Crap that commercial was actually terrible. I mean yeah sure it was shot well and everything, but when I realized it's for a tequila company I couldn't take it seriously anymore... but that rig looks sweet and I would love to shoot on it
Although this film doesn't really look like my style, I really appreciate and support your entire approach at it. I don't know how these people have the balls to hate on this. You literally took a film that a studio would spend $30 million to make and call it "low budget" film and made it for a super low budget. Much respect for that, and everyone should appreciate that. I think everyone here is just jealous cause they spend so much money on equipment, permits and catering to make a shitty ass movie that leaves em broke and doesn't get seen by anyone outside the indie world. Respect the hustle people!
I have a friend who's in China right now, I'll get him to look into this a little more. If the footage comes out better then that sample video (which did look poorly compressed especially because the intro graphic was pixelated) I might just tell him to grab a bunch.
It doesn't matter what camera was used to shoot a film, it matters about the finished product and whether the audience likes it or not. As much as I enjoyed reading this post, you shouldn't let it discourage you from making your own films on a cheaper camera like a DSLR.
These are big budget films (at least bigger than what we have in our pockets) and they will use big budget equipment because they can. Normal people who aren't film makers don't care about dynamic range or resolution (as long as it's decent) So just focus on making good films with what you got, and one day you'll be shooting on an Arri yourself.
