  1. I have a job coming up and I need to shoot a Model Semi truck outside and make it feel like it's actually life size. I think the model is 1/14 to scale. ( I think it's about 10'' tall and 2' long). We have a shot where we have it pull up to a Gas Station and we pull out to reveal that it's actually a toy all in the same shot. I've never done any forced perspective and I was wondering if anyone has any tips to help me get started? I'm thinking of using an Innovision Probe 2 lens and stopping down a lot. Wondering if I should look into tilt shift lenses as well? I plan to use an Alexa Mini but wondering if the sensor is too big and my depth of field might be too shallow? Also wondering if art department will need to build any small sets to actually make this work. It does sound like the director wants to shoot outside in real locations. Here's a link to the type of model we'll be using. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_Du5YYvnMA Love any advice on this. Thanks!

  6. I'm looking to buy a set of super speeds and I have a small list of lens brokers but I wondering if someone has a full list of lens brokers and any advice on purchasing a set of used lenses. Thanks!
  7. I'm selling a set of Zeiss Standard speeds (16mm,24mm,32mm,50mm,85mm) for $19,500. These lenses are just as sharp as super speeds and some say are cleaner and for more than half the price of super speeds. Here is a project I shot with them... They are in really nice condition and they have been serviced a few months ago. Email me at info@chrissaul.com for pictures.
  8. I'm selling a set of Zeiss Standard Speeds F/2.1 (16mm,24mm,32mm,50mm,85mm) - $19,500 and an Optex 100mm Macro Lens F/2.8 - $5000 All lenses are PL. Email me at info@chrissaul.com for photos and if you are interested!
  9. I have a project coming up and the director wants to use a few projectors to project video in the background of our set. We are setting up a portrait shot of someone sitting in the foreground and we want to project video behind them and have the projection project on the furniture and wall of the room. It's a bedroom. My question is what type of projector should I get to avoid flicker? I also need it somewhat powerful but I need to be able to project close so something that can project wide. Any advice would be very helpful. I'm shooting on the Red Epic trying to stay at ASA 500.
  10. Thanks so much for being honest. I'll definitely cut it down and look for a better compression. I used H264 optimized for streaming with hinted streaming. If you have a good suggestion for compression I would love to hear it. Thanks!!!
  11. Just finished my MFA in cinematography at Art Center College of Design. Check out my montage at http://www.vimeo.com/18379236. I'd love to know what you think!
  12. Im shooting a project and I have to light a Ford Explorer. Ive heard you need really really big diffusion. Is 20x20 big enough for over head? I would love some advice on this. Thanks!
  13. I have a Panavision to EOS mount for sale $1500. If interested contact me at info@chrissaul.com
  14. Hello I'm shooting a music video next weekend and the director wants a bold contrasty B&W video shot with the Canon 5D. Any recommendations on how to set up the camera? Should I set the camera to B&W or desaturate in post. And if you have any colors and lighting recommendations that would be great. My experience it seems you have to be bold with your lighting choices.
  15. Hi wanted to know of a good reasonable company that makes Bluray/DVD reels?
  16. Check out my work at www.chrissaul.com. I own a Canon 5D with a full set of Zeiss primes.
  17. Panavision mount to Canon EOS. This Professional Panavision mount allows you to put Panavision lenses on your Canon Cameras. This was built at Panavision before all the trouble of getting them. I'm selling for $2000. It pays for itself! Email me at info@chrissaul.com if interested.
  18. I'm shooting a music video on the Moviecam LT 35mm camera all which will be shot at 36fps. I'm renting a 1800W Arri HMI Par w/ electronic ballast. Will there be flicker? Do I need to change my shutter angle to compensate? Thanks Chris Saul Los Angeles

  20. Thanks David for the great information and for saving me from making a big mistake!
  21. Thanks for the info! I'm not as technical as I should be but maybe you can help me a little more. I spoke with Guy at Panavision Hollywood and he told me that I get more resolution, 20% more. I did a test with a 75mm Anamorphic Primo Prime and it looks amazing and when I unsqueeze it, it becomes something like 3800x1080. Here's a link. http://www.chrissaul.com/VIDEOS/ER_CUT_3.mov Guy made it seem that it covers the sensor. Do you think I had no cropping issues because it was a 75mm? Let me know what information I'm missing because this is my first feature and they really love the idea of trying to give it the anamorphic look. I was thinking if I stayed at a f8 or f11 I might be okay with Depth of Field and if I cropped the edges in camera and not use the whole 3800x1080 that I could bring it to a 2.40? Correct me if I'm way off, I'm still student. Thanks, Chris Saul www.chrissaul.com
