WOW!!! Looks incredible. I need to get a hold of some Sony CineAlta lenses sometime. They are absolutely beautiful. Very nice job!

Finally managed to do something a bit more interesting and something that I've wanted to capture for some years.

It's very common here, but I've never chanced on being able to film it when it happens.

Thank you Donnell! Hopefully the next one can be done in BRAW. But that's being shot on the 31st, so I'll have to hope that the next one after that can be shot in BRAW. Fingers crossed.

Rick,
Thanks. I seem to be attracting shorts featuring damsels in technological distress.

This is my first project shot on my Pocket 4k - it was a lot of fun to make.

Okay shot this a year ago, but with the intention of using the footage to promote this year's event. So, I'm a little foggy on all the details.



Shot on the URSA Mini 4.6K
HD ProRes 422 at 23.976 fps (with 60 and 120 fps for slow-motion)
Edited & Graded in DaVinci Resolve

Was put together relatively quickly since the budget wasn't big. But it was fun to shoot.

Haven't had much of a chance to put the BMPCC 4k through its paces yet, but thought I'd share my first run; really enjoyed using it thus far.

Here’s a still shot on the P4K from a music video I just co-shot and co-directed with Max Goodrich. Blown away by this IQ

Here's the first episode of a new tech series I directed & edited in Sydney for AWS (Amazon Web Services) called, This Is My Code.



Four different BMD cameras used:

Cam 1 (mid shot) = UMP + Tokina ATX Pro 28-70/2.8
Cam 2 (mid shot) = UM4.6k PL + Angenieux 28-70/2.6 (rehoused)
Cam 3 (wide) = BMCC MFT + Canon FD 50/2 + Metabones BMPCC Speedbooster
Cam 4 (code close up) = URSA Broadcast + Canon 8-64/2.4 Super16

The graphics were produced by Amazon in-house at the Seattle production office.

Okay, I've got a few videos to share so I'll just do them all together in one post.

First let's start with the oldest video. It's the oldest because I shot it for a model last year on May 2, 2018. I thought I had deleted the footage, but in the fall the files were found on my travel drive when I was sharing it with the director of a music video I was doing color grading & VFX on. So I got the hard drive back around November from the director and decided to move them to my main drives. That was all so when I had time I would edit it. Finally it happened this last week when another model asked to reschedule due to how cold it was. So, here it is. I shot the BTS footage in HD ProRes 422, and the cinematic footage in HD ProRes 444. I just cut them together in Resolve 15 no matter what it was and graded it. It's okay, not great, but came out better than I thought:



Next up is the Valentines Day videos for the Gentlemen's Club I do video for. This was a fun shoot and all the girls were great. A lot of creative thought went into the theme. First time shooting a milk bath, so that was a new experience. Then the roses and rose pedals made it especially interesting. Overall, I really enjoyed the shoot. However, in post I had to work around flashes of flesh that can't be shown. In some areas I did VFX by adding a rose in the water to hide a nipple, and in other areas I just did a blur with the hope that it wasn't noticeable. In the future I say just put black tape X's on the nipples so I have good tracking marks. I hate nudity sometimes. But then again America has Puritan views and in Europe it's far more acceptable. Personally, I only care for the art.

Either way, tech specs on the Valentine's Day content: UHD ProRes 422 HQ at 23.976 fps with 60 fps being used for off-speed recording. Obviously I shot in Film Mode and Graded in DaVinci Resolve 15, which also was used for editing and VFX in Fusion. Rokinon Cinema Lenses and a Digital Juice Slider was used. As well a Benro tripod head.

Valentines Spot 1:

Valentines Spot 2:

Valentines Spot 3:


Hope everyone enjoys these videos. I've got a few more model videos on the books. Part of the delay is waiting for it to warm up. But then I also plan on doing a few more short films this year. Got a lot of content to create, so will be sharing more soon...

Here’s the latest model video for Savannah Cheyenne. Shot at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park in Tampa. I used the Blackmagic Design URSA Mini 4.6K with Rokinon Cinema Lenses (16, 24, 35, 50, 85, & 135). I shot in CinemaDNG RAW 4:1 (4,608x1,920) and edited & graded the footage in DaVinci Resolve 15.

Man, I wish I could shoot these videos with BlackmagicRAW. (Wink, wink)
