Hello Everybody, i'm new here as new to anamorphic shooting and almost shooting in general, I made this vid during holidays with my son and girlfriend in a friends house in ardeche in france, just to have a trace of it. http://player.vimeo.com/video/66394467 Don't go to hard on me, i know these are "trees and shit" :), but that is all i got to shoot. I would like some advices as i'm really liking to shoot stuff, i made some motion design before and my job is to create websites, but i would like to try to make some music vids (with an idea of course not just shooting random stuff). So go on with questions and comments i'm ready arms spread wide open ! As for the technical part, it was shot on a GH3 with "eclatant" profile so i suppose it's vivid in english, way too sharp... Looks weird and camcoder like to me, stupidly i just forgot to go back on my personalised "flat" setting as i gave the camera to my girlfriend to make some photos and she told me they looked "sad and flat :)". I used a canon FD 50 f1.4. The timelapses are made with the well known stock 14.140. The supercinelux is a pain to focus on such small screen like the one on the gh3, and more when it's all streched, so i was thinking to get a external screen or a loupe with a anamorphic function. You'll see some flare porn, i really like the flares from this lens. It's very sharp when focused properly, and as i see it's works really nice from 2 or 3 meters. So i think that's all. Hope to hear lot's of critics :), i'm happy to finally be on this forum. See you soon bye!
In my quest to find the perfect matte box, I have been doing some research that I will share here in the hope that someone else may benefit from it (this is a cross-post, there is also a thread on Personal-View: [url="http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/2876/matte-boxes-and-filter-thickness/p1"]http://www.personal-...er-thickness/p1[/url]). Not all matte boxes on the market will take Tiffen or Schneider filters. Take for instance the DMatte from DFocus. It's a bargain for the price, but when I finally brought one home, I couldn't support my Schneider filters because they were a millimeter too thick. I've since returned it and resumed my search. It looks like these are my options at this point:[list] [*]Arri (confirmed by forum member) [*]Chrosziel (personal test) [*]LockCircle (manufacturer confirmed) [*]Lanparte (confirmed by forum member) [*]Cavision (personal test) [*]Cinematics (confirmed by forum member) [*]Cokin (website info) [*]Vocas (manufacturer confirmed) [*]Genus (manufacturer confirmed) [*]Movcam (manufacturer confirmed) [*]Century Optics ["Sunshade Filter Holder"] (confirmed by forum member) [/list] I have no confirmation, but I'd be surprised if the matte boxes from O'Connor, Bright Tangerine and TLS Raven could not hold 4mm filters. If you know of any others, please comment and I will update the list.
