That is great! All what young and aspiring filmmakers need is a new camera with a full frame sensor, not meaningful stories with amazing actors, you know the kind of stories that makes you tell yourself, I'm so glad I saw this. What matters is definition, blurred background. Oh yeah, the cam is the most expensive and crucial element of a film, not the story, not the locations, not the dedicated crew and 99.9 % of the budget simply goes to the camera. I can't wait for the thousands of work of art that will be created with this cam and will keep me riveted to my screen. The ridicule keeps piling up; every technical aspect mentioned in this "nice" article, mainly related to the sensor, dynamic range etc will be totally missed by any audience who goes to see a movie for the story while having no knowledge of cameras. I'll repeat myself: the ridicule nonsense continues.
This is the saddest article I've read in a long time. It made me want to do the same stunt I've pulled on a forum, years ago, and when I came clean I was banned from it, or I should say my IP was.
I filmed my little neighbor, 7 year old, playing with her mom in her yard. I used my old Canon XH-A1. I beautifully filmed it and grade it in Resolve and uprez it to 2.5K. I uploaded it as being filmed with the BMCC 2.5K and everybody thought it was the best BMCC 2.5K footage they had seen. People raved about it. I won't even tell you the kind of insults I received when I told them it was out of a XH-A1. I'm starting to wonder about NFC, really!
Yeah, great progress on the front of image acquisition,but that's not really what we need. We need decent content, and frankly it's not out there, except for some docs, but most narrative are dismal. I'm now at a point where I'd watched any great narrative shot on VHS. We are becoming more and more a culture of form over substance and content, I guess that goes well with everything we can read in the news these days. Who wants to pay me to I go watch Once Upon A Time in Hollywood?
I watched it on Netflix last week and I must say it's a very good film. I recommend it. I was so into it that I was sorry when it ended. One of the best Sci-fi movie lately. Watch it!
One of the rare filmmakers whose work is worth seeing. The anti Tarantino. Meaning and content over cheap attempts aiming at flattering the lowest instincts of viewers. I can't wait to see this.
Thank you. You're correct. He's making movies, not films. Terrence Malik and David Lynch make films. Tarantino makes movies. His movies are for kids and other immature bipedal creatures, most of them one day, will watch his moving images on a phone and frankly shooting on film should be the least of his concern, I'd say he should switch to VHS.
