  1. Thanks all Only had a chance to look at this now, some very nice ideas here, very helpfull!
  2. I am going to give a class about movement in cinema, would love to have some suggestions for films with interesting camera moves (from the storytelling point of view), or if you know of any articles / interviews relating to the subject. Thanks!
  3. Thanks all I think I was a bit unclear before, of course the resolution and aspect are two separate matters, I just meant Netflix's strictness about the first might imply their approach for the other... In any case as Daniel said I imagined it would be their regulation.
  4. so no specific limitation by the networks? I could imagine netflix as with their 4K fixation objecting to accept wider aspects.
  5. Thanks for your reply Mark. Ill try and check out Ordeal by innocence! Broadchurch shot on the cooke anam. couldent find any tech info about Ordeal, but would be pretty interesting if they both went for 2:1 extraction.... I wonder if thats because its an easier aspect for the networks to digest? Of course traditionally scope is defined as 2.35 or 2.39, but recently with digital I see allot of original aspects extracted from anamorphic material, ranging from 2:1 to 2.66:1.
  6. I am trying to find if any major tv series were broadcast in scope aspect ratio? I know some shows such as The Walking Dead and True Detective s02 were shot anamorphic with a 16:9 extraction, but looking on line I was not able to find any series broadcast in scope except a british show called Broadchurch which apparently was shot anamorphic for 2:1 screening. Also the great doco Wild Wild Country was shot scope (seems anamorphic). Any other thoughts?
  7. Hi all I was wondering is it possible to use a lens doubler on anamorphic lenses? If so is it the same kind used for spherical lenses or are there specific doublers for anamorphics? Thanks
  8. I need to create this very heavy smoke effect for a music video (in a 150 square meter studio), and from my experience with lighter smoke/ haze scenes I don't think the machines I usually use will be enough. Need any advice on which type machines or smoke to use, or other tricks on how to get this thick smoke effect looking good on cam. reference: https://youtu.be/UW0vOum0mBM?t=58
  9. Thanks all Ill do my best making one, hopefully will update soon with resolts (:
  10. Well if anyone else has any clue as to how to get plans for making such a frontbox it would be much appreciated! I want to make a costumised one before my next project and it would be great to have some plans to rely on..
  11. Hi Chris could you please re upload the plans?
  12. Hi David thanks for your quick reply However, there is still way too much algebra in there for me to figure out, as in all the equations I see online they go into image distance and object distance and other comlex terms. Im trying to find a straightforward formula where I only need to put in focal lenght and focusing distance...
  13. Hello all Beware, a hardcore technical question ahead.... I know that by having the focal length and minimum focus distance of a given lens, plus the sensor size, one can calculate the magnification ratio of that lens, such as with this very useful online calculator. However, I don't want to have to rely on an online calculator, and have been frantically searching for the equation that will enable me to calculate this on my own, to no avail. I have been spending the last day drowning in technical terminology and trying to make sense of it, just to understand how very simply focal length + minimum focus + sensor size = magnification ratio... Shouldn't be that complicated... Any Ideas fellow geekster cinematographers? Thanks
