"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.

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.

    • FS SLR Magic Anamorphot 2x 50 Anamorphic Adapter
      By Sebastien Farges
      For sale 
      SLR Magic Anamorphot 2x 50 Anamorphic Adapter 
      http://www.ebay.fr/itm/-/112268980367?
      a very good anamorphic lens with single focus ! (put the prime lens on infinity, then focus on the anamorphic lens) in good condition. No diopter needed ! Works with little vignetting with the 20mm Lumix pancake, and no vignetting beyond.
       
      LENS : No haze, no lens separation, little little dust, little cleaning marks
      BODY : in good condition, but two parallel scratch lines (see picture), and a 58mm step ring stuck that I prefer letting the buyer take it of if needed.
      Sold with front and rear caps.
       
      the last pictures are video 4K stills
       
      Here are some movies I have made with it :

    • Selling my a7s for a 5D mk3 (???)
      By SigurdW
      Excuse me for being a hopeless pixel-romantic. 

      This dilemma has kept me awake for a quite some time now and I am hoping your subjective experience, reflection, input, opinions and/or advice potentially could give me some guidance (or potentially more confusion, which I will take full responsibility for).

      My interest for Raw started when I played with the thought of replacing my a7s for a Digital Bolex D16. While I am usually very trigger happy, I managed to hold my horses when the chance to have a go on it complicated my relationship with it. I realized that, without a second camera (for budget reasons), the 20 minute boot-up and the sacrifice of photography would not make me happy in the long run. While I still want to be a Bolex-owner as I am a sucker for the CCD and its awesome audio features, it is not my time just yet. Nevertheless, the Raw fanboy is still in me and I think the 5D is the (next) best thing (?) and might be a good investment. 

      Maybe I just answered myself, haha. However I specify that I am asking for your subjective experience/opinions. Maybe some of you have been in the same boat or the other way around.

      I did quick and shamelessly dirty test today, if you find it interesting. The exposure is all over the place (unfair), more info on that in the videos description.
       

      Thank you!
       
    • FS: Focus Module Anamorphic (FM Lens) + Follow Focus Gears
      By 23.976p
      For sale this Focus Module Lens by anamorphicshop. It has been sold out in its web for months so this is a rare opportunity to catch one!

      I bought it a year ago and it has been paired with the Schneider Cinelux 2x MC (which is also in sale if you want it) with very good results. It was designed to be used with that adapter (it fits awesome!). Two videos I shoot with that kit:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDCVdaq53P8 - https://vimeo.com/193376733
      I also used it to shoot with a Kowa 16S: https://vimeo.com/132607897
      The front glass has one little scracth as you see in the macro photo. It really doesn't affect the image because the diameter of the lens is so massive (105mm) you can't tell the corners of the glass in the camera.

      Included in the package:
      Focus Module Lens FM Collar 24 (which allow you to fit anamorphic adapters with a diameter of 55mm or less) Follow Focus gears Rear adapter (72mm to 68mm) Front Cap Rear Cap
      920€ plus shipping.
      http://www.ebay.es/itm/182410168305
      Price is negotiable.
      Feel free to ask any question!
