Director of Photography
Lens diffusion is so hot right now! Two things in this video that stand out. The B angle must not have the same or any filter (anyone else seeing a difference?) and this movie is reminding me when JJ Abrams started to get called out for over doing it with anamorphic lens flares. Will Snyder kill the lens diff trend b4 most ppl get a chance to experiment with it?
Maybe it's just me, but I think we'd get more value out of hearing people in the same role discuss the topic. How does Robert Richardson feel about this? Writer/director/producer vs Cinematographers opinion very likely to be different. Roger just wants to continue telling stories with his craft and Tarantino is fighting to hold onto a declining medium. Of course Roger isn't being hard headed about film. He's a career DP and wants to help tell as many quality stories as he can. This means working with multiple show-runners who prioritize different parts of a project for different reasons. If he doesn't change with the technology it will limit the amount of projects/collaborators he can work with based purely on a tool instead of the story; which is his main priority when choosing a film. Tarantino is the writer/director/producer for his projects. He is in a unique position that affords him the luxury to say something like.. "You like this? Well, it only gets done if we use film." This video/article is only continuing to drag on a conversation that most professionals agree is nothing but a distraction. In reality filmmaking is an industry and it comes down to dollars and cents. You want to use film? Go for it! Be prepared to sacrifice portions of your budget to fit it into your workflow. Until you're in a position like Tarantino or Nolan; tell your stories with whatever tool is available to you. Let's stop this whole one is better than the other nonsense.
Doubtful. There is a D65 standard for monitors at 6500K, but video lighting is more likely to target 5600K as daylight. Although, when I got my gen1 300d it measured 5000K, still technically "daylight", camera and lighting manufacturers have historically considered 5600/5500K as photographic standard for daylight.
Highly advanced green screen with very exciting potential. Going to be a staple moving forward, no doubt. Still looks artificial compared to a fully practical environment. Similar to the way digital cameras look artificial when compared to film cameras. Nearly intangible differences with todays technology, but in the beginning with an audience that wasn't used to the aesthetic; a different story. Point is this tech needs to be on everyones radar. Thanks for demonstrating and sharing :)
