  1. Thanks LOM. I wish I could have shown more about the characters, but I didn't have producers/help or extras to allow me to get scenes with more interaction/people.
  2. Thanks guys for the replies. Yes, to me as well sharing and showing what you can achieve with the not-best cameras is what we all have to do. Instead I usually see in forums people compare/complain and ask for more, but I'm never allowed to see what they produce with - let's face it - cameras that can do much better than pro-cinema/hollywood cameras from the '90s. Yes I used MFT for budget reasons, and I can say I am very happy to have achieved that film with only a G85, pana lenses and 1000€. MFT lenses are very good and sharp (i had to add blur in post to give a more cine look), but they can't give you the shallowest DOF. Skin tones are worse than what more pro cameras can give you, but color grading can change the game and the audience doesn't care about that kind of things (if job is properly done). Project after project it becomes pretty clear that STORY is paramount, and then SOUND design.
  3. Thank you very much! About gear, I used micro four third stuff. A Panasonic G85 with Panasonic lenses: 12-35mm f2.8, 15mm f1.7 and 42.5mm f1.2. I used Magic Bullet Looks in Premiere Pro and a LUT that's called "AriColour 4k Cine Pop". Changed the tint and colours hue to get more reddish skin tones, blurred a bit (as m4/3 is way too sharp) and added grain. This radically changed the look of the film. That's interesting to see that you can get good results without cinema lenses and a high end camera. AriColour_4k_Cine_Pop.cube
  4. Thank you very much KnightsFan ! I appreciate a lot your analysis.
  5. Hi there ! This is my last (self produced) short film. I'm wondering if you can guess the gear used for this one... ? Thanks for watching ?
  6. Thanks ! I've been coming there for months but hadn't registered yet.
  7. Thanks for sharing my film IronGuy ! It was shot with the G7 and 12-35mm f2.8 & 42.5mm f1.7 lenses. Graded with Magic Bullet Looks in Premiere Pro CC.
