The skintones from the print scan are very similar to the print shown in the New Beverly. Definitely different tone curve compared to the blurays. But I will say the print was more similar in color to the bluray, just more punchy in contrast. Not as flat as the vhs, bluray, and 4k bluray.
Always thought about using this camera or the Hasselblad H6D-100c which has an even larger sensor. The issue is Dynamic Range still cannot compete to an Alexa Sensor at a video level. Of course, there are other benefits to shooting on a traditional cinema body like the Alexa and Venice. Also I think on the GFX the F1.4 translates to F1.1. Nice experiment. Glad you were able to shoot it .
I'll sum it up, be a white man or woman lol... don't want to dismiss her hard work completely, I'm sure she put in a great deal of work especially on those long brutal union shows, but if there is anything that is shockingly true in this industry is that if you are a white man or woman you already have a leg up and you are going to be treated better by colleagues on set. You are also most likely going to get the job compared to being a member of a minority group. It's not just this country either, if you go to china and you are a white DP, you will be respected more and sought out. It's insane but real. Being a 2nd AC on big shows is already a no easy feat, most ACs I know get in because: 1. a family member helped, 2. they're white, or 3. a gross one but I have seen it, quid pro quo.
definitely better than anything marvel has put out. Though it isn't the dark knight trilogy (ducks)
The Snyder Cut had it's issues, but it's so much better than the DC movies that have come out after the theatrical cut. Definitely it's own thing and not trying to be like Marvel, which DC and WB tried to do. It takes risk, it's unique, it's gritty, has amazing cinematography, and doesn't care if it's not family centric. It's basically modern stories of mythology. If WB moves forward and corrects its fumbles, while letting Snyder back into the DC, you can count me in for actually paying to go see super hero films. But that's just me. It's definitely a superior hero franchise that is being held back
it was a tough year for cinematography to stand out. but I guess in general it was a tough year for everyone, and definitely cinematography isn't what should be prioritized
