  1. Thank you! I think we were trying to get that 80's vibe without going crazy and doing a fake vhs look or something too on-the-nose.
  2. Yeah that was the major quirk I ran into and didn't expect. I did a fair amount of tweaking of different shots, but definitely missed a few. I guess in a perfect world I'd shoot a chart or something at different focus lengths and use that as reference?
  3. Hey everyone, A music video I directed just released this week and I thought I'd share it! We shot in an old salon & a retro pinball collection and we used a bunch of aputure lights and rented a 'Letus Anamorphix' adapter which was quirky, but gave the look that I wanted in the end. We shot on an A7s (mark 1) into a blackmagic 4k recorder/monitor. I guess the main oddity of the adapter is that the aspect ration wasn't truly a 1.33x squeeze. It seemed to vary depending on where I had the 'focus ring'. So i ended up adjusting the clips scale by hand in the final grade. The actors w
  4. We just released our newest short film "Julie", it's been submitted to a bunch of festivals and we're very excited to hear everyone's opinions! I think the blackmagic really helped us resolve the snow and still keep a decent amount of shadow detail "An ill prepared, government field operative must battle to fulfill a nebulous tour of duty for 'The Greater Good' while fending off wolves, weather, and the creeping suspicion that his mission may be meaningless." https://vimeo.com/165636427 All The Best, Luke Director www.covertfilm.com
  5. Hey guys! Thought some of you might enjoy this tutorial. It's about using Colorista II to qualify skintones and adjust only the background. Secondary color correction I guess you could call it! Good Speed Always, Luke
  6. This is a little 2 minutes short film we shot with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. It is our first major field test of the camera and we weren't disapointed at all. We shot with a Canon 50mm 1.8 & SLR Magic 25mm 0.95. Coming from a DSLR background, I was really surprised how well he dynamic range really held up. We shot ProRes for everything except the opening and closing shots which we shot RAW. We used one bounce card but the rest was available light.    It's titled: "Le Rire". As you can probably tell by the heavy-handed french music, we were aiming for the feel of a pixar-esq
  7. Hey guys, just thought you might be interested in this.. We've been working on "The Layer" for about two years total and it's about ready to hit the internet/festivals. It is a 45 minute, conspiracy thriller shot entirely in Harrisburg, PA.  Here's the official trailer we released a few days ago.  http://youtu.be/5RNWizIsUIY We shot about 90% of the film on the Panasonic GH2 with vintage nikon glass (50mm 1.8, 24mm 2.8), a Lumix zoom lens and a few, newer, SLR magic lenses (35mm 1.7, 26mm 1.4 toy). The other 5% was shot on a Canon 7D. Reason bein
