Absolutely gorgeous.  Great concept too.  

 

I'm curious, in the comments section you discuss various diopters being used, were they just for the close-ups?  Your lead actor has such an interesting face.  All that detail was rather stunning.

 

The edges had a nice subtle falloff in the wides.  It looks like you might have center-cropped to something more like 2.40:1 would that be correct?

Hey Sean, thanks a lot.

 

The closeups were used just for the... close-ups. This isco is incredibly sharp, we shot most of the film at f/2.8 - f/4, but even at f/1.4 the adapter is very precise.

 

We didn't crop anything (apart from the digital zoom-ins and 2 shots done with the 35mm + diopters, because of the vignette), basicly we just squeezed the image to a 2.40 ratio in Premiere for the final export.

Ah, so just left a slight vertical squeeze.  There's another thread here discussing the compression ratio on some Iscos being not quite as stated so that makes sense why it would work.  A slight vertical squeeze is far more attractive than the opposite.

 

Great stuff.

Whatever they paid you to make this, it probably wasn't enough.  :D

 

Fucking masterpiece. Looks like it was shot on film. Great story, great lighting, great shot composition. 

 

If forced to nitpick, i would say that the opening shots in the graveyard were not as strong as everything that followed.

      I am selling this package: https://www.ebay.es/itm/292624231515?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

      - Anamorphic lens ISCO-OPTIC Cinemascope Ultra-Star (anamorphic 2x)
      - Wide angle converter 0.6x
      - Diopter 2x Canon 500D Achromatic 72mm
      - Diopter 1x B+W 72mm
      - Collar support
      - 15mm rod support
      - Step rings and 72mm filter adapter

      This anamorphic lens works attached to any lens closer than 80mm (FF), 50mm (Super35/APS) or 40mm (m4/3). It is appropriate for small lenses with a front thread smaller than 67mm approx. or it will create vignetting. 
      The adapter is placed in front of the base lens with or without the rod support (directly screwed with step rings).
      72mm filters can be used in front of the anamorphic adapter in this setup, as well as other sizes if you have the step ring.
      For using the 0.6x wide angle converter a 72-58mm step down ring is necessary (not provided).

      Hello, I am currently in search of a 1.5x anamorphic lens of any kind. Ebay seems to be drier than the Mojave Desert. If anyone has lenses to offer or have suggestions on where to look/specific links, please share or contact me. I prefer an Isco or Kowa however I am open to all advice or offers.
      Thanks,
      C.B.

      Hi!

      I am selling my red Isco Ultrastar Plus 2.1 anamorphic projection lens with caps. In perfect condition. Stored very safely in a dry box. Known as one of the sharpest budget anamorphic adapters.

      Together with the Isco, I am also selling 2 Redstan clamps designed specifically for this adapter: rear clamp with 62mm thread (to attach the Ultrastar to your taking lens) and front clamp with 75mm filter thread. Redstan clamps are easily the best clamps for anamorphic adapters and these are solidly-built and fit snugly around the Ultrastar. Step-up rings are optional. With this combination, you are ready to shoot anamorphic!

      Selling it all for $499. Buyer pays for shipping. Please PM for more information or more pics. Cheers!
