    Thanks folks, just updating this now its all said and done. The shoot went brilliantly, the client are really pleased with how everything went.

    True Detective style opening.

    Key and Peele? Had a google but can't see whats relevant, I'm desperate for more examples of this style so could be good.

    True Detective style opening.

    Hi folks, I'm shooting a music video next week, it's studio based and with one performer, my plan is to shoot his performance then overlay abstract stock footage detailing the themes of the song onto his face. I've never shot nor edited for this style before and I am a little apprehensive as I...

    Why does this footage look wrong?

    Resolve lite sadly,ill have a look into neat video. The LUT was actually a kodak film LUT so from my understanding should add grain anyway. I like the footage, it was actually shot with cropping to 2.39:1 in mind but I figure if I letterbox it the rest of my reel will have to be like that too...

    Why does this footage look wrong?

    It got a lot noisier when I applied one of the kodak LUTs, I did push the image a long way yes. It was slightly under exposed in camera as it was a live prayer meeting that I didn't want to throw a massive light on, maybe I should go back and film it again with more light.

    Why does this footage look wrong?

    Hi folks, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGYwF46k2aw&feature=youtu.be (apologies for the 10 seconds of black at the beginning) I've been gathering showreel footage recently by going around local institutions and filming people doing what they enjoy doing the most. I got this great footage...

    GH2 and BMPCC for shoot abroad,what to use?

    Ok the controller has arrived but Im having an issue. The buffering time on the GH2 seems to be the same length as the exposure, so a 25 second shutter speed is followed by a glass timer icon saying please wait and a countdown from 25 seconds?

    GH2 and BMPCC for shoot abroad,what to use?

    Thanks IDOM, I have bought the controller. From what I can work out if I set the shutter speed to around 25 seconds in camera then set the trigger to every 30 seconds on the controller it should have enough time to buffer in-between shots?

    BMPCC Ninja or SmallHD?

    Cheers guys, I didn't realise the Ninja wouldn't be recording RAW, that kills the deal a bit doesn't it. The monitor is more for critical focussing than anything else and I have read that the peaking on the SmallHD stuff is very good.What would you recommend Jax if you don't like those?

    BMPCC Ninja or SmallHD?

    Hi folks, Having recently picked up a BMPCC to go alongside my trusty hacked GH2, I have spent some time playing with it and seeing what needs adding to the package. I have come to the conclusion that for my type of work the two missing pieces are the screen and the amount of card space taken...

    How do you know if your movie is too loud or quiet?

    Why don't you just find the highest requirement needed for the festivals you want to apply for and get whatever mix they need for your next film? If the mistake you made on this one was basically not giving the sound designer long enough time because your budget was running out then surely the...

    Showreel feedback needed

    Didn't go through resolve at all then? Nice, seems a pretty decent workflow,did you use proxies or just edit the DNG files?I'll have to look into that sigma as a replacement for my 14-45.
