Americanah - Concept trailer - shot on GH4

Recommended Posts

Would like to know what you think about our newest work.
Shot with the infamous Panasonic GH4, internal V-LOG 8bit, -5/-5 NR and sharpness. Used Panasonic lenses: 12-35mm 2.8, 20mm 1.7 and 42.5mm 1.7. Used a Tiffen Black Satin Filter to get rid of the sharpning artifacts still left over at -5 and add some smoothness to highlights and shadows.

Budget: about 0$.

@deezid, Hey, colors and footage looking fantastic! Gonna repost that in the GX85 thread, since it´s spinning dizzy about Panasonic color:). Your achieved look

is just too beautiful!

 

@Cary Knoop Does that mean you would pull the blacks all the way down to 0? So screenshot is before your recommended adjustments, right? cheers

The problem here is that the blacks are more or less clipped, the floor looks like a straight line and it is very dense right above.  It seems the shot was underexposed in camera. 

You could try to expand the dense area towards black using a secondary color correction.

That's great! This is a trailer for something not yet made, right? What I particularly liked was being pulled into the story and no longer looking at the colours. Very unusual for EOSHD ;-)

Are you telling me you don't like those beautiful scopes?  :)

I really like this, the whole look and feel! The story seems interesting, and the atmosphere is great.. Also, this is the best footage coming out of a GH4 i have seen so far! But then again, it is not the camera, but the one using it! If there is one thing i would change, it is the soundmix. It is a bit low, but maybe it's just me going deaf ;)

But great work!!!

      Well, it’s been 8 months since I completed this and almost a year since I promised @mercer to post it once completed

      I don’t really know what to say about this, it’s my first short and I wanted to try this medium after trying music, photography, drawing/painting and all sorts of writing in order to figure out myself and my depression.

      It took me months to complete due to my mental state and lack of energy and I intended to post this sooner, but life can be a little too much sometimes. Or very often in my case.

      Even though it was the hardest creative thing I’ve done in my life, (despite having a background or experience in most of the separate artforms that make up a film) I was really lost in the entire process and I developed love/hate relationship to it. I wanted to quit all the time when I wrote it, when prepping, when shooting and during the long, motivational drainage that is editing.

      But I guess that’s also where the love was born. No matter all the mistakes I made, I could somehow save it and make a decent first short thanks to the editing by re-arranging the pieces I had. Throw away most of it, stretching what was left of it, slowing or speeding up some of it, playing some of it in reverse. Dubbing in new sound (needed, cause most of it was unusable. Note to self: Don’t forget sound!

      I’ve tried to make another short since, but haven’t completed the shoot. I don’t know if I’ll finish that one, it’s just a silly comedy I made with my then girlfriend, now fiancée on my phone (This one was shot on the DVX200 before anyone asks, cameras are important on this forum apperantly, hehe) because she wanted me to make something less depressing, but I guess I’m just a gloomy guy, all my new ideas are based on my different malfunctions.

      Hopefully I’ll work up enough energy to make another, I really want to.

      Anyway, enough talking. I hope you’ll give this a go and give me some pointers, but go easy on me, okay?

      Now, pick you poison:
