THFKDLF - MADE IN BRIGHT XXII, BERLIN.
By Naive Studio
Latest work shot on the Sony A7SII in PP5 due to indoor light restrictions. Time-lapse work via the A7II, all with Zeiss E-Mount lenses.
Loxia 50mm and 35mm, final time-lapse with the Zeiss Touit 12mm in aps-c crop. Cut and graded in FCPX. Love to know what people think?
THFKDLF headed out to Bright Tradeshow, Berlin to showcase their upcoming collections and produce a capsule over the 3 day show. Here is what happened.
Bright is an original platform which conveys a snapshot of modern lifestyle within an atmosphere relevant to its target group. Since culture is in constant motion, and the influences of its trends are always evolving, the element of its perception fluctuates between art, sport and music. Above all, authenticity is the leading component.

No Limits - The Fighter -
we just shot a little video with a german MMA Fighter / Hip Hop Artist.
We shot it on GH4 and GH2 and used a Cam-Mini 2 Gimbal. Luckily a friend at Deli Creative Collective graded it for us.
We would love to hear some feedback. We want to grow - as you know there are no limits ;-)
We added the video to the Sony competition and if you like to support us it would be great if you could like the video on youtube. (The youtube likes are needed to get to the next round)
Have a nice evening!
Gear Upgrade: Buy Canon 70D or more lenses for t3i?
Hello all! I would like to preface this post by saying that this is actually my first time on these forums, so thanks in advance for this awesome community. Also, I'm somewhat of an intermediate filmmaker, and you can check out my YouTube channel to see where I'm at (youtube.com/thisisrmm). As with the title of this post, I'm trying to figure out where my money would be better spent, upgrading to a 70D or buying more lenses? I have my own personal pros and cons for both, but first, here is what I currently shoot with: Canon t3i w/ Magic Lantern Canon 18-55mm (kit lens) Canon 50mm 1.8 I've set aside a budget of $1000 to make upgrades, so I'm not sure where my money is better spent. Reasons for upgrading to the 70D: - I eventually plan on upgrading to full frame in the future; not sure if buying desired lenses made for APS-C's like my t3i (Tokina 11-16mm) is worth the money if I'm upgrading - I can stick with this camera for longer, with it being a full frame (not having to worry about crop factors and what not) - From my own research, a better camera overall Reasons for buying lenses: - I'm pretty run-and-gun with my setup, so I've been somewhat relying a lot on the kit lens, which definitely helped me learn a lot about DSLR video, but I'm looking to take a step up in the category - Lenses definitely outlast cameras, so I figured that might be a better investment considering that I have this kind of budget set aside Cons for 70D: - If I buy this camera (body-only), the only compatible lens I'll have is the 50mm f/1.8 until I can afford to buy my desired lens of choice (Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8) Cons for buying lenses: - If I buy the Tamron 24-70mm, it'll be in somewhat of a weird crop for me to use with my t3i - If I don't settle with the Tamron, I'm somewhat lost on what lenses to buy within my budget that would work well on APS-C and eventually full frame whenever I make the upgrade I'm sorry for the lengthiness of this post, but just looking to provide as much detail as possible. Thanks to anyone willing to help a new guy out! Best, thisisrmm
Freebie: Android app -- Director's Viewfinder for BMPCC
I developed an Android app that serves you as director's viewfinder.
Having your Android device with you, you can see exact framing of your Pocket camera on location, applying your lenses and boosters. Planning your lens setup has never been easier!
Please check out the app: Play Market
The app has ads in it, though not too nasty. You can always switch to a paid Magic Universal Viewfinder that has no ads, no limits and lots of cameras supported -- like BMCC, BMPC4K, 5D Mark III and 4/3 sensored-cameras.
Enjoy and feel free to give your feedback!
Lenses to keep throughout GH4 > BMCC 4k > RED SCARLET
My name is Gleb, I'm starting a production company to shoot feature films, and commercials / music videos on the way before that.
For my camera package for the first 2-3 feature films I'm going to buy GH4 as the camera body (Now have 2xGH3), and after I will have a transition to BMPC 4K and then to RED Scarlet / Epic
Now I own a speed booster alternative RJ speed booster (Nikon mount)
And was thinking about the idea of buying a full Rokinon cinema lenses set (Nikon mount)
Than use it on the RED scarlet before buying better primes, but than I will not be able to have my middle switch from GH4 to BMPC 4k.
1.) So is it better to buy all lenses EF mount and buy the EF speed booster and than EF mount for RED cameras, or buy Nikon to EF adapters for the BMPC 4k?
2.) Another idea was to avoid speed booster and by ROKINON lenses in MFT mount direct, to partially avoid the crop factor, and after 2-3 films sell the full kit and buy PL Primes for BMPC 4k and then move to PL RED?
3.) For our second feature film we are planning to shoot anamorphic x1.5 adapters style, any ideas on working (Anamorphic / Rokinon / Speed Booster / GH4) or avoiding Speed Booster will be better?
4.) Buy one vintage PL zoom lens and a PL adapter for GH4? Any lens suggestions in that case please.
Now I have only 2 nikon zoom lenses to use with my speed booster and I can sacrifice that if needed.
Thank you for your answers!
