Thanks, Mike. No, this camera just came out in December. my film was shot on several cameras but mainly a Red Epic Dragon and a C500.
True. I haven't owned any others. I've shot on tons of other cameras, though, for film and client work via rentals: RED Epic Dragon, RED One M-X, BMCC, BMPC 4k, BM mini, BM Ursa Mini 4.6k, Canon C500, C300, C100, Sony F5, Panasonic GH4, Panasonic GX85, GoPro, probably some others.
Glad you dug it, Troy. Wish I could make it out to NAB.
yeah exactly - you want to give them some directions to see how they take direction. Some actors, even if they seem great the first time, will have a very limited range and even after you give them direction will keep doing more-or-less the same thing. That's something you should test for. I'd even come up with an off-the-wall direction that you'd never use like, "can you sing like your girlfriend just broke up with you and shaving reminds you of her?" something crazy, just to see how present they are. If you're casting multiple performers for the same scene sometimes it's nice to use callbacks to test chemistry between, say, this actor and this actress.
Thanks, Myke! I'd like to continue posting as well :)
Thanks! Yeah, I had mixed feelings about stabilizing shots as well. But felt it was best for the video, if not viewing the footage outright, to do it. to Richard's point above, that's a potential benefit of shooting higher than 4k resolution is that you can deliver in 4k without sacrificing.
