  2. Hey all, A feature I shot on ORWO black-and-white 35mm is screening (on DCP) at 7:30pm on Monday, June 19th at Anthology Film Archives. I wanted to let anyone know who may be interested in the film stock. We're doing a short Q&A afterword. Information can be found here: www.themutineerfilm.com Either way, I'd love to meet some folks while I'm out there!
  3. Thanks for your ideas, Bruce. I noticed you had posted something similar in the General Discussion section, but I figured it might get more discussion here. Yeah, I'm being pretty conservative for now with any sharpening, only using it on a few shots. I'd love to be able to test some of this with a DCP.
  4. Thanks Tyler. Yeah, I certainly am not finding any lack of sharpness in our footage; I'm not sure why I was thinking that adding sharpening may be a routine operation in grading (was probably reading a lot of stuff on grading digital projects and wanted to make sure I wasn't skipping something). There's maybe four shots in the film where we used a particular wide lens that appears less sharp than the other shots, that I may play around with sharpening on. On the other hand, we also have a few shots that are particularly grainy. I was playing around with the "remove grain" filter in After Effects, and just didn't like the softer result (admittedly, this was my first time using the filter, so I'm no expert, but I spent a few hours experimenting with it). Ultimately, I'll choose the grain over the soft image. Maybe if this were in color, I'd be more inclined to take out some of the grain, but not with black and white.
  5. I'm currently grading a project shot on BW 35mm. "DI" may be a misnomer here as it's in HD Prores, but anyway... I had a question about the general use of sharpening and its effect on grain. From my understanding, adding sharpening in post on projects captured digitally is somewhat common (?), but I'm wondering if that's the same for projects shot on film. That is, should sharpening be more of a corrective measure for shots that need it, or is it a routine step in the grading process (and is that different between digital and film projects)? Additionally, how is that tied to degraining? Do most films shot on film go through a degraining process? In that case, I realize sharpening would be applied after the degrain. I've been playing around with the unsharp mask in After Effects and finding that it's accentuating the grain, which is probably no surprise. Though, I'd prefer not to go through any sort of degraining for this project. In a nutshell: Is digital sharpening a routine step for projects shot on film, or is that only if degraining has been applied (corollary: how common is degraining)?
  6. Thanks very much. We're starting to send it out to some festivals now in the hopes of finding a distributor. Otherwise, we'll be distributing it ourselves.
  7. Still available; completely open to offers. http://www.ebay.com/itm/331846587392
  8. Hey all, I wanted to share the new trailer for the film I've been working on - "The Mutineer" (feature), about a group of criminals, fleeing a gun possession charge, who take over a farm in rural Appalachia and try to secede from the U.S.: Shot on ORWO 35mm. Comments are certainly welcome.
  9. http://www.ebay.com/itm/331828495460 I've had this rig for years, and it's still flying cameras. It's rated for cameras 15-25 lbs, though I've definitely pushed it up to 30 lbs or more (e.g. RED One with a RED 25mm lens plus extras, etc.). You can also get a weight plate for lighter cameras (not included here). It's not the prettiest thing, but it works, especially if you're looking for a beginner rig that can fly heavier cameras/set-ups. The big suitcase-looking thing is in fact the original case, though you could fit this into a couple of Pelican cases if you want to get serious. SD rig with 2-pin LEMO power. Comes with the following: Post Arm Vest Dovetail Plate 7" SD Monitor 3-Stud 14.4v Varizoom Batteries (x2) Docking plate to attach to stand (stand not included; I use a C-stand) Case shown in pictures A variety of cables, including: BNC (x2), 2-pin LEMO splitter, 2-pin LEMO to P-/D-Tap, 2-pin LEMO to P-Tap splitter, 2-pin LEMO to DC, 2-pin LEMO to 6-pin LEMO (for RED One power) and 2-pin LEMO to 3-pin XLR power
