I shoot with the 70-200 during the ceremony on my left and right side cameras; I can get close up shots without being a distraction. Since you're filming in 4k with the GH5, you could crop in to get even closer. These videographers have some really nice/ expensive gear, I see no reason why they couldn't have filmed with longer lenses to get their close ups.
As a wedding videographer, I totally get that the couple is paying you to get certain shots and be "creative", but I would personally never get two feet behind the couple during their vows to get a shot. At that point, you're taking attention away from where it should be. The couple, their bridal party, and the parents sitting in the front row are fully aware of what you're doing and now they don't have 100% of their attention where it should be: on the couple. Their memories of that moment will now include you, which it shouldn't. The shot looks great in the final product, but it comes at too high a cost in my opinion.
I don't like being critical of other wedding videographers work, but I think this is a bad practice to propagate.
I think it's interesting that Wally Pfister directed some of these episodes using the Red camera, given that he's been a huge supporter of using film for his projects.
Exactly. I've never watched a movie or tv show and thought, "If only this was shot at a higher resolution."
I don't mean to seem disrespectful, but I honestly don't know why people still want Magic Lantern. There are so many cheap cameras that have great quality video/ specs these days that it seems crazy to opt for an unstable software in what is presumably a vital tool that is making you money.
Shoot in 1080p, and take the time to get it right in-camera.
