"Happy" (24hr music video)

Shot on Alexa with 50mm Panavision C-Series @ stops between 1.4-2.8 with almost no second takes, so some of this is focus-pulling from the gods.

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras

The dedicated website wasn't functional when I was trying it out but as near as I can figure it lets you, possibly from a clock interface or with some sort of reference, let you see longer segments that were eventually edited into this, described here.

 

I'm not really a fan of this music but I like how simple the concept was and what went into its execution.  Plus, what's not to like looking at footage from what's, for a lot of folks, the gold standard for anamorphics (regardless of soft edges and aberrations).

Likewise, I'm not a big fan if the music but what beautiful lens.

 

It's like all you need anymore is a hook or chorus and don't even have to sweat the rest of a song...it's the same thing for four minutes.  Oh well.  The visuals are compelling enough that the "song" didn't annoy me too much until I thought about what was actually there, and wasn't there.

On Youtube versions isolating individual hours have started showing up.  Pretty amazing undertaking.  It's the same song looped to fill each hour but well worth checking out.  Some really nice moments and a lot of photographically interesting locations.

    • WTB: Helios 44m & Tokina +0.4 Diopter
      By brianmcall
      Hey everyone, I'm looking to buy a Helios 44m-7 lens.  I don't trust ebay with this lens as it looks like most are switched plate fakes, unless you know of a reputable seller with one.  Also looking to pick up a Tokina +0.4 Diopter, if anyone would like to part with theirs.  Thanks!

      I'm selling my Bausch and Lomb anamorphic lens and lens/telescope collars for rails. This item can be altered by following the procedure entitled "Anamorphic Cooking" to give greater results using this lens. More info on that can be found in this part of the EOSHD forum: 

      In the auction I'm including the lens and collars for $135. Please let me know if you have any interest and thanks for looking.
       
       
       






    • Panasonic AG-LA 7200 $629 + shipping
      By hexemie
      The Panasonic LA7200 is an anamorphic adapter that creates a 1.33x stretch, so any camera shooting 16:9 will output a Cinemascope ratio for  footage for post. I've used this lens with my Panasonic GH4 with great results.
      This listing will include a 77-49mm step down ring and a 49-52mm step up ring that I used with my Canon FD 28mm (2.8) and 50mm (1.4) lenses as well as my Mir 37mm and Helios 58mm lenses. It also includes the front and rear lens caps.
      This adapter uses the taking lens to focus and doesn't need an adapter. It's been a great lens for me to learn with and is great for making the foray into anamorphic shooting.
      Please ask if you have any questions and I am open to offers. I am selling this item as/is with no returns.
