A short promo about studying in Rome. Shot in May 2013 on the Canon 5d mark 3 RAW when RAW had just been released.

Lenses primarily used: Canon 35mm IS and Canon 70-200 f2.8 mk2. I only had 2 Lexar 1000x, now I use these and 4x Komputerbay cards. Edited on Premiere, ran through Adobe Camera Raw in After Effects first to get better debayer and graded on Davinci Resolve. 
I hope you like it, let me know your thoughts!

Thank you! I wouldn't recommend my workflow for this one as I was playing around. I'm still playing around, I used to be a programmer.


I noticed the Resolve debayer wasn't as good so I ended up exporting an XML back to After Effects and reconnecting every clip to the original DNG files from there, setting the correct exposure and white balance and then rendering that to color correct in Resolve (had to use Scene Detection in Resolve to cut the file up again). So I wouldn't recommend that workflow.


What I'm doing now, which is also very crazy because the debayer is crap in Resolve and great in Adobe Camera Raw, is that I select all the first files in every DNG folder (the one called 000000.dng) and drop it in Photoshop. There I set the sharpening, white balance (with the eyedropper) and exposure. Click done. Bring it to After Effects using the Immigration.jsxbin script (make sure keep hirarchy is checked) and then to get all the file names right I've made a .jsx script that goes like this:


//Use with “Immigration†script
   // define variables
var thisRender, newPath, i, j;
var renderQ = app.project.renderQueue;
var secondItem = app.project.item(1);
   // loop through each renderQueue item, checking if any are queued
   for (i = 1; i <= renderQ.numItems; ++i) {
      // check if the render item is queued
      if (renderQ.item(i).status == RQItemStatus.QUEUED) {
         // shortcut variable for render item   
         thisRender = renderQ.item(i);
         // loop through any output modules
         for (j = 1; j <= thisRender.outputModules.length; j++) {
thisRender.comp.name = secondItem.item(i).name.substring(0,8);
Then render to prores4444. Like I said I'm playing around with this, normal people would just render proxies from Resolve, edit and then reconnect to the DNGs and Color Correct like that. Wish I was normal :)
I don't have the drive in front of me but I'm guessing we had a bit over 1tb of data in total for this.

      I single-handedly shot an entire narrative short film during the first lockdown, using the original BMPCC. The camera performed magnificently but I did have it fully rigged out. Shot using two SLR Magic primes - 10mm T2.1 and the 17mm T1.6. A one-person crew and one-mother cast, this is a film featuring my poor mum, who’s never acted, and a very, very unlikely hero…

      Jean-Luc Godard once said “All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.” My mum doesn’t speak very good English, so I had to do without dialogue. I didn’t have a gun so we had to do without that too. We couldn’t leave the house, so I shot it all there. And I had no crew to help me, so I did everything myself.
      If anyone has any feedback or questions I'm always happy to hear!

      Hi there, I just purchased Canon's EOS C70 and would like to complement it with Canon's RF 28-70mm F2L USM lens. Since that lens has no IS and I mostly film handheld and a lot of times in low light conditions, I am just wondering how well it performs together with the C70. Do the shots turn out to be very/too shaky? Of course the camera has electronic Image Stabiliser. Is that getting rid of shaky footage? Otherwise I'll (have to) go for the RF 24-70mm F/2.8 L IS USM lens. Best, Maurits

      Hey guys,
      I have a SpeedBooster for the Pocket and the Micro for sale, Canon EF lens version.

      I'm in Italy and I can ship to Europe for fair prices and even WW if needed (postal or UPS).

      Amazing cage with built-in follow focus wheel perfect for the a7s, Canon and Nikon cameras. It's in used condition but works great. Redrock are a quality company with excellent customer service. I've found this cage to be exceptional as a one-man-band.
