  1. Hi Everyone, One of the shorts I wrote/directed recently finished its festival run and we released it online today. I figure I’d post here for you guys to check out. We shot it on a C200 (using raw) and regular Zeiss glass.
  2. Don't know if this was posted yet, but checking it out now.
  3. Appreciate the kind words. A lot credit goes to our DP and colorist. They both did excellent jobs. Our colorist actually reached out to the colorist from Moonlight for some colorspace info which was really helpful in locking down the final look.
  4. Yea that's what I saw in a lot of test videos before we got the camera. However, when we were doing our camera tests before, ETTR did something weird to the skin tones of our actors that our DP didn't like. One of our main actors has really dark rich skin and we definitely wanted to preserve the fidelity of that. But you live and you learn. All in all I think the images came out solid.
  5. Thanks, No, I wasn't the DP. My homie Jeremy Brockman was the DP (Instagram @brockfeb). We shot entirely at 800 but either exposed right on the nose or underexposed about quarter to a half stop give or take. He definitely intended to do that. After production he did say that when he looked back at the raw stills (since raw has no noise reduction) that he probably would've tweaked that in some shots. Also, our colorist said that he made the right choice because the highlights can clips pretty harshly on this camera even when shooting raw. I asked him how many stops of dynamic range he thought the camera had, and he said probably around 12.
  6. Thanks! Here are some of the ungraded tiffs. REEL_A006.00_01_21_22.Still002.tif REEL_A011.00_18_57_03.Still014.tif REEL_A014.00_00_41_23.Still002.tif
  7. Hi Guys, Here are some screens from a short I recently wrote/directed. Originally planned to use the Varicam LT but availability was scarce at the time of our shooting days. All in all using the C200 was pretty cool to use. Our colorist said that there was some slight noise issues in the shadows but the color cleaned up well. I can post ungraded raw tiffs in here if anyone wants to see any. peace
