Very nice. It was cute and charming.

I think it would've been nice if the alley wasn't so well exposed. Maybe ISO down a full stop and lift their faces with a 4x4 card. Or even construct an extension to the 4x4 to hold a small dimmable LED fixture or a phone light to bounce into the board, as a mobile powered bounce card thing.

Really nice work AJ! I noticed some noise in certain scenes. Just curious, where you rated at ISO 5000 during those scenes? What did you rate the camera throughout the film?

I think it looks great for having a half ton (at most) grip and electric package. My favorite scenes are at the end with the two kids at the warehouse. The lighting is fantastic!

Good point, thank you!

Thank you, Mike! I rated the whole film at 5000 ISO. I think the nosiest scene was the night warehouse one not because of exposure, but color temp. We couldn't source a strong enough light beyond ETC Source 4, but gelling them blue would cut too much light for the slow motion parts of the scene. However, the LT can go to 2000k color temp, so we set the camera to that. The downside was that we were practically starving all of the other channels of any information and the image became incredibly noisy. Our colorist, Nicole Kizer, denoised these shots in the grade thankfully.

I will say, the incredibly high native ISO made it possible to work with a small GE package. 😄
