Thanks Guy, we did a test yesterday with the Rode Lavalier mic (not smartlav), which is omnidirectional that was OK. I was hoping there were some lav mics that would pic up more than others.
On paper I must admit I'm a bit worried about just how useful the 8bit 4:2:0 log footage will be for grading, how far can we push it to get it where it needs to be?
Hopefully it wont start falling apart too easily
Why didn't you light the rooftop scene where Ever and the other girl first meet? It's so dark and flat. Would like to hear your thoughts.
It wasn't executed perfectly, there was terrible post stabilisation artefacts throughout.
I'm really interested to know what happened with the footage/camera operator to make them use the amount of stabilisation they did in post. I honestly thought they shot in 4k handheld/shoulder rigged and intended to have that type of look throughout then changed their minds in post and decided to try to make it look like it was floating instead (steadicam look) so applied all this stabilisation. But after watching this bts video and seeing that the worst scenes were actually filmed on a steadicam it makes me even more curious as to what happened. Does anyone know?
What is a Chimera? Is it just a larger softbox right? I'm curious about how it was balanced so well in the room in the first video. I used a 2K arri light and it overpowered everything, even with difusion. Unless he shot it away from the talent and bounced it back to them?
