She is so lovely... and I think there's some serenity of Yasujirō Ozu's style in this unpretentious shots that lure enjoyable smile as result.  Maybe just to add one more angle as variation while she is speaking? I like the most this part/composition because of simplicity and combination of colors of wood/oldfashioned darkblue fabric that highlights subtle naive moves of her timid eyes...Maybe it can be pattern or the best foundation for an idea - to compose another version of little movie as a story of her virtue and virginity as deriving (and owing to) from her antique background...

@anonim That was pretty awesome. My criticisms would be: seriously over-sharpened; a bunch of blown highlights; I would have liked to have seen even shallower depth of field in many of the shots; and quite a bit of the footage looks bland, either because of the time of day, the grade, or both. The anamorphic stuff looks good.

Maybe I'm wrong, but from my experience with these two Sigma's zooms - they are not quite appropriate to provide SOOC smoother image. Or maybe they even are not at all appropriate for such preference - because their concept actually accentuates the same that trait aimed also with Panasonic's inner softwer-over-sensor manipulation. Using of speedbooster just amplifies effect even more.

But, of course, using of filters and accurate grading direction can make everything mellower. I'm sometimes forced to think that many members on the forum actually rarely used modern grading softwares even to the level of at least fraction of their capacities. To put it simply, with reaching enough reality-reproductable level of resolution and DR, near every distinctive inner software/color characteristic of cameras can be replicate by usage of grading process - even by not too deep one. And anybody who tried to learn some indeed hard-to-comprehend software that required whole life to mastered - mostly 3D such as Houdini or Maya, but also to a lesser degree serious compositors - will find that even Resolve is actually very easy, simply because of enormously lesser variables and equally enormously bigger level of subjectivity and tolerable try-and-repeat paths and effects.

It seems to me that creator(s) of this short movie didn't bother/worry with look that gravitate to, say, such of an prestige TV production - maybe they just like it, or they thought it is better choice considering content of movie - of course sharp, aggressive, disturbing, distracting...

BTW I'll be free to take opportunity and write to you what I thought: it'll be so nice if you also make some short movie, or more narrative presentation with Huang... It is so nice and interesting how you and she, despite of generation difference, actually grow-up together :) Maybe just she as reciting some illustrative verses in illustrative changing visual moods... Or omnibus of situations, it is so close to Eastern spirit, as Kurosawa's Dreams, or different "Monogataris"... Who knows, maybe you'll decidedly help her to become a new Ziyi Zhang...

Yes, that butterfly and starting-to-fly-away little birds simple change everything :)

But you also have, imo, at least one highly beautiful shot - I already quoted it - where, luckily, also Huang showed gift of an actress and your composition may well be the one of Kar Wai Whong... Just repeat yours the best... (and maybe play more with rim lighting - but, in fact, it isn't necessary nor rule, just variation).

@jonpais, I must say, I like the look. Great enviromental portrait photo style. Nice slide like colors, not best though with great mojo. Colors sing. Love the suburban setting  and the framing and capturing of architecture, materials and texture. And love it how it is not hidden by shallow dof. In my opinion great footage. Lovely.

Indeed. I think it´s one of the best casual "girl walking but not talking but groovin on IBIS"- videos on youtube. I don´t see harsh light but intense and for real and dynamic, strong, natural light, which is speaking for this special achieved look. Maybe my monitor is much more forgiving than yours. One never knows.

No, I don't think it's the monitor.
