Partner - a short film produced by Red 5 Studios and Continuum

Recommended Posts

My short film, which I produced and directed for Red 5 Studios and Continuum Films, got published yesterday. The film's executive producers are Mark Kern and Cindi Rice. Mark posted some months ago on reduser about his ambitious project of funding short films (check out the thread). Only request for getting the funds was that the film has to be interesting for gamers (and of course the script and the showreels of the director and DoP had to be approved).

Nowadays, views on youtube are a currency. I do have a great new film project which I want to shoot for stage5, but to get the funds, this first film has to be successful. So please have a look at my film "Partner" and, if you like it, share it with your friends.

We shot the film on a RED Scarlet with Nikon AIs lenses. Colorgrading was done in Resolve.

 

If you have any questions about the production, filming in Berlin, what gear we used or the post production process, go ahead and ask :)

 

Cheers
David

Sorry for more or less spamming here, but it's really important to me:

I've been posting my new short-film "Partner" on sites everywhere, and I need your support with one. I'd like to get it featured on "Short of the Week", so if you liked "Partner" and don't mind going to the site and voting for it, that will help.

And please forward the message to anyone who might like the film. Those votes will allow me to shoot my next film!

You need to register first for the votes to count, so you'll need to give an email address and then click on the verification email.You can also log-in using your facebook or google account. Then, you can give the video 3!!! votes.

If we can get it featured on Short of the Week, that often gets it featured on i09 and Film School Rejects too, all of which really bump up view counts.

That again will make sure I get the money to shoot my next film, a web mini-series western/fantasy/neo-noir crossover clear.png

Cheers
David

      Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC...
      I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage...
      What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?

      Hi,
      Thought i would share a short film, that i have worked on for some time, as the technical side of the production might interest someone here
      You can see the film here. http://www.ekkofilm.dk/shortlist/film/nem-dating/
      There are no subtitles, but the synopsis is this:
      A young high school student gets an after hours job, to pay for a trip around the world with his girlfriend. The job is as a promoter for an online dating site, where he writes to girls there, to keep them as subscribers of the site. One day he realises, that one of the girls are someone close to him, and he tries to make things okay again.
      The film was shot over a week, and we mainly used the GH5. The camera is awesome and i loved the stabilization function, although it sometimes gave us trouble. 
      We where mostly shooting with a Sigma 30mm 1.4 for canon and a focal reducer, and as this is an aps-c lens, it vignettede on the GH5. That is not so much of a problem, but when the camera was on a shoulder-mount also, it would counteract the internal image stabilizer, and the vignette would "bounce" around. So we found out to either use the camera handheld og turn the is of. Also we could use the ex teleconverter function, this lessened the vignette somewhat. We also used a canon 24-70 L 2.8 lens, and when using this, there where no problems with the bounching vignette, as it is a full frame lens.
      For lightning we mainly used Yongnuo led light and some Aputures. They worked great, but the aputures are imo a lot better for color reproduction. 
      For sound, we had a Røde ntg1 connected to a Tascam 60d. It was okay, but the ntg1 has a lot of hiss, and really needs to be close to the talent or have a stronger preamp.
      On the tascam, don't use the highest gain option, it's really noisy.
      I picked the Gh5 over an ursa mini pro for the film, as i could set it up more quickly, the battery would last longer and we didn't have to carry so much gear, which was important, as for the most time the crew constisted of myself on camera and directing, a sound-recordist and a gaffer/lightning guy. 
      In the editing fase, we had to tweak the colors a lot, especially skin tones took a lot of time to get right, as they where a bit read of camera. But, as we filmed in v-log 10 bit, it was not a problem. I have also shot 8 bit footage with the camera, and the image falls apart when doing any grading in v-log, and i dont like the other profiles. I have read some people cant see the difference between 10 og 8 bit, and neither can i. But when you grade them, there is a huge difference, i would not use buy the gh5 if it did not have v-log and 10bit.
      In low light i was also supprised how good the image looked, but i am not so afraid of noise. The camera is great in low light, as long as you have a small amount of light on the subject, like a bedside lamp or something. If there is no light, the camera dont look good, but i dont like those kind of images anyway.
      I have attached some images also, but check the film out, as the stills don't do the footage justice.
