Director / Cinematographer
You can use a tool like this to see what different formats/framerates/resolutions impact file size - https://www.digitalrebellion.com/webapps/videocalc but as to how much you will actually end up shooting, thats tricky... as mentioned depends on so many variables (shooting ratio / number cameras etc ect)
What festivals are you aiming for? Latrodectus is a fun short, and it has really nice production values. Lighting especially. Do you have a trailer? and what about a press pack? in my experience, you got to make not only a great film but package it in an easy to market and digest form for festivals. There are just so many films being made now, it's a hard nut to crack.
I found the story arc a little choppy, the knife at the midpoint... I don't know but the gag set it up for a really nice dark twist but then it stalled before delivering the final twist at the end. Maybe 1 twist too many!
I would suggest a backpack over a shoulder bad.. as it distributes the weight better if your intending to hike with it for long periods. It doesn't need to be camera only to, i've traveled with it stuffed with everything i need for a week away including cameras!
Ive had my Manfrotto backpack for years and years, and keeps coming in handy.. this is their new version of what i use - https://www.manfrotto.co.uk/pro-light-camera-backpack-3n1-36-for-dslr-c1...
I had the pleasure of meeting Ramesh Raskar (the MIT guy who pioneered the trillion fps camera) back in 2010 and it led me to make this short film exploring what light 'could' look like if you could see it traveling through space.. https://vimeo.com/72720085
Its great to see things are still moving forward with the visualisation of light!
really well shot, it never felt intrusive but just peaking behind the curtain and showing us a world many would never see.
I haven’t seen this anywhere either... give me dual ISO over 300fps any day. . But I’m sure that would have been mentioned if it was included. I assume it will 800.
