[color=#222222][font=Helvetica Neue', Arial, Verdana, sans-serif][size=4][background=rgb(255, 255, 255)]I'd like to propose a collaboration: If forum members (or forum watchers) are able to submit clips shot with ten or more different anamorphic lenses, we'd have the most comprehensive anamorphic shootout on Vimeo. If we are able to put together shots from twenty or more anamorphics, this thing would be a definitive one-stop video for anamorphic footage comparisons [i]anywhere[/i].
To keep things cohesive, we need a common element. Something standardized, readily available around the world (as this is a very international community) and inexpensive:[/background][/size][/font][/color]
So start shooting those Coca-Cola cans! Close ups, wides, dutch angles; portrait shots, action shots, landscape shots; people drinking from it, spitting in it, playing with it, crushing it, recycling it, putting out cigarettes in it -- anything you want. I'll try to include something from every clip that I receive, but please keep it clean (i.e. suitable for work).
[*]Please make sure to use a standard 12 fl ounces/355 ml Coca Cola Classic aluminum can like the one above (or as close to it as you can get)
[*]Limit the footage to one minute or less per anamorphic
[*]Include original audio (no music, please)
[*]White balance for "Shade" (or 7000 Kelvin)
[*]Please stretch them to the correct aspect ratio
[*]ProRes 422 codec is preferred
So that proper credit can be given, please also note:[list]
[*]Your name (or your handle if you'd prefer) & location
[*]Taking lens used (with aperture)
[*]Anamorphic lens used
[*]Any diopters used
[*]Vimeo page (if you'd like me to link to it)
Send me a private message if you have a clip to submit, and I will tell you how best to get it to me.
[b]Please submit by 12pm (New York time) on November 1st[/b] so that I can start the edit.
This could be a neat little collaboration and I hope that it is, but it's really up to you guys. I hope to get a lot of messages!
