    • A quick test shot with the Veydra Mini Primes on the GH4, recording in UHD to a VideoDevices PIX-E5 in ProRes. Picture Style: Cinelike D.  
    • Since you're doing 2D type animation stuff, I'd recommend shooting long focal lengths.  This will "sit" better in the eventual composition. I made a green screen project a few years back wherein we tried the short lens look.  Didn't like it at all and threw out all those shots.  Edge distortion was awkward. And, FWIW, we shot vertical too. Also, an art direction thing to consider: Your subject is darker than the background.   As a rule of thumb, to make the image easier to look at, reverse that.  Not that you need to always do this, just a consideration.  Working in the virtual realm like you're doing gives you complete control over your "lighting."  Make sure you exploit it.
    • Yeah, we're pretty lazy across the pond. Without screw on filters, a lot of us probably wouldn't use any.  Sadly, I am probably going to invest in that magnetic filter holder because screwing on a filter is quickly becoming a chore...
    • Thanks for the correction - this seems to be an issue of the U.S. versus the rest of the world. The Black Satin filter aren't available as screw-ons in Europe (or at least I haven't been able to find them yet).
