Congrats Nate on shooting Jurassic Park :)
If I could do it again I'd add a few extra camera angles and even more props. Maybe a security feed outside the door and an extra wall in front of the actors so we could do reverses and give the actors a few extra angles to work towards. Sean Persaud (who I've seen do stage work) really worked the entire space during his scenes, and those props and nooks gave him things to chew on.
Oo, never saw that, but I love love love practical effects! Props to them for getting good BTS. We actually worked out a spacewalk sequence and a few other locations but we were already way over budget and unfortunately had to cut them. We managed to keep the zero-g wire work which was absurdly fun to shoot.
The shoot that convinced me we could pull it off on a budget (which I backed!) was https://vimeo.com/58429056 "C (299,792 km/s)" which is really quite beautiful.
Also, plug for Star Trek Continues. Those guys are next level. Their attention to detail is up there with The Love Witch.
I got to use the VENICE at the launch event last year. We whipped it hard, the rolling shutter was undetectable. Might be a different story with HFR, that function wasn't ready for the demo and it sounds like it won't be ready for launch either.
The Sony developers were constantly telling us that it was using a new generation of sensor that was still rolling but would look like global. Hopefully that holds up and this tech spreads into other cameras soon!
Looking forward to renting this, finally a Sony camera I'm excited to shoot with!
