  1. Obviously usable means different things for different people, I'd say that for most people 4000ASA would be ok and it doesn't really need to be denoised. However, I was shooting a passion project last Monday with the Venice and I tried using 10000ASA on daylight and the noise looked gorgeous!!!!
  2. Thanks so much John!!!! :) Many thanks Mark! I really liked the K35s! I had wanted to work with them years ago but never had the chance so I was pretty happy to use them. However, I just finished a shoot with the Venice AND the Supreme Primes.. and the way the Supremes fit the Venice is really wonderful. i don't want to shoot with an Alexa anymore haha. I realized that I was (and am) specially polite, too polite sometimes to ask for things to happen and also, because of that it was taking me a lot of time to communicate with people because they had to decode what I wanted. Now that I have started to be more straight (and blunt sometimes) people knows what i want straight away. Hi Mathew!! thanks for the compliment! That particular shot was shot at 6000ASA at T2. Matt (Colour grader) had applied a denoising filter but we didn't like the result when it was full on.. and I REALLY love noise! (I usually shoot with the Alexa at 3200 ASA) so we asked for it to be removed.. but at the end it stayed there.. at a 5% if I remember correctly. Have a lovely day!
  3. Earlier in June I was asked to shoot a 4 days commercial for UK director Matt Houghton. To say that I was scared and pretty nervous is a understatement because I was beyond that.. Matt, having worked with people like Rachel Morrison, Rina Yang and the likes was a very imposing figure for an upcoming cinematographer like me. Anyways, we went on to shoot this GAA commercial for Supervalu (an Irish food chainstore) which was all about roots, family, community, etc and along the way I discovered one of my flaws as a dop, which made me really happy. We shot on the Sony Venice with the Canon K35 and I just fell in love with this camera that Sony has created. The richness of the blacks and the tones is spectacular. The way I tried to light it was just by enhancing what was already on the locations, with a very minimal approach as we were travelling ALL AROUND Ireland for 4 days with minimal crew. Matt Branton from Windmill Lane in Ireland did the colour grading. He is really really good and the way he approached the grading was really honest and truthful to the material. I have to say that our director, Matt Houghton knows how to look into the soul of any given character to bring what makes him / her human, it was such a wonderful experience to be by his side on this project. Supervalu - GAA - Where You Are From I hope you like it! Have a lovely day!
  4. Thanks David!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. Just found this quite interesting. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/jul/07/streaming-could-kill-uk-independent-film-industry?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other&fbclid=IwAR2dLTDQ-cJAPiUf0MQfUXDw2gKo-IkqtSmL5OBNXwEoXK-aniLyjaaFVr8
  6. I got the Film Craft - Bronze in cinematography!!!! https://www.icad.ie/award/esb/ :) :) :)
  7. You can always take a look at frame24.co.uk They usually have either recans or short-ends on the 65mm section when a big movie wraps up. Have a lovely day.
  8. I shot a commercial for a week with the Venice and the Canon K35 a month ago.. I rated it at 1500ASA on the 2500 Base and at some stage I had to shoot a portrait of a person at night in a lake.. nobody could see anything but the camera, set at 10.000ASA and 359ยฐshutter. Absolutely amazing the way that it picked the ambience light.. I put a 8x8 frame with light grid cloth and a 1x1 Aladdin dimmed at 5 / 10% and it looked a bit much! I also underexposed every shot by 1.5 stops (more or less) I color graded it last week.. and the richness in the colors and the density in the image (even the 10.000 ASA shot) was tremendous. I donโ€™t want to use an Alexa anymore in my life.
  9. Medicos Del Mundo is shortlisted for a Cannes Lions award in the category of Health!!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—
  10. Thanks Robin! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much Phil! ๐Ÿ™‚ You could be right about people thinking that they don't have the resources that they need but you make things work eventually! I know that the UK average low budget commercial is around โ‚ฌ90K / day.. that is a medium - high budget commercial in Spain ๐Ÿ˜‚and we definitely don't have those budgets in Ireland at all. I would love to know the average budget for US commercials!!
  11. I got a nomination for Craft - Best Cinematography at the Institute of Creative Advertising and Design (ICAD) in Ireland for this commercial! It also got a nomination for Craft - Direction so I'm sure that Ian is extremely happy as well! https://www.icad.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Commendations_Posters.pdf I'm all over the moon!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Looks good Stephen! Would you be able to share the Vimeo link whenever you have it online? Would love to see it in movement as the grain in the stills looks fabulous. Have a lovely day!
  13. Hi Kevin, I shot at 4K, that's correct, no need for full frame, it would have been nice but our budget didn't allow for anything else than Super 35 lenses. Have a lovely day. Best.
