The backdrop on this guys video was still blown out.. even though he said he didn't want the backdrop to be blown out.
The Samsung is apparently a very capable camera, but I hear nightmares about the h.265 codec.
I really don't have an exact idea for what I want the footage to look like. This is the kind of thing I will just get to the festival and see whats happening and shoot what I see. I know I will want some slow motion footage, but have a hard time deciding if I should shoot something slow vs regular speed. I also really like time ramping effects and think that would be a cool effect when I cut the video to music.
Pretty much I need to watch other successful aftermovies and see what they do to be successful.
it will be shot mostly during the day, but yeah I get that the shutter will be a lot higher for the 60 fps. How will it affect the editing process though?
Color science, DR, Resolution
Someone mentioned how 4k downsampled to 1080 retains twice the resolution. I still think 1080 looks fine and 4k is almost too sharp for my liking.
Dynamic range is good but if you know how to light then you should still be able to get footage that looks solid without 15 stops. I own a 60D and 3 softboxes that cost me 200 for the set and I can get great looking footage with that setup.
To me, color science is the most important because you can manipulate/grade them to make the look so much more attractive than it was originally shot. People are going to remember the look/feel of a film, not the resolution.
