  1. it was reduced to 30min because of sponsoring probs. but it was also a wish to realize the project i couldn't foresee the ratio because it was a very precarious topic; at best, it would be a 5:1 but it could also be 20:1 ... So the decision for digital. I got the Alexa from a friend for a few bucks and the Cookes very cheap... And what s in your eyes simple equipment? I also had my super 8 phase already I will post a link when its finished ...
  2. I want to make it clear that I did not want to imitate film but simply reduce the digital look / sharpness. Which in my eyes don't look so organic and lively and that was a point in the project. I shot with Cooke S2, which i got really cheap to the alexa and i flatten the gamma curve a bit regarding to the standard settings. Exposed 1 stop over and prefered a bit of low key.
  3. Thanks Philip. I know that the costs for film and digital equals out in some productions, but in my case that was a short. It was much more expensive than the Alexa, which i also got cheaper than the list price. Of course film would have been my wish, but it just was not possible. I have for my next independent project some production companies so that I can turn on S16mm maybe 35mm. But this project was not possible.
  4. No i think also that it was shot on Panavision. _____________________________________ Maximilian Hillmer http://www.maximilianhillmer.com

  6. I've just found a pretty good solution which fits perfect for my upcoming project. http://www.maximilianhillmer.com
  7. the variation of the aspect ratio really doesn't matter.
  8. No. Your showreel should work as a whole and best you have good music which supports your images.
  9. You're right, adrian. These are usually periods in which a particular kind of film is established. However, video games have their own fascination and you have to wait for what the time says.
  10. yeah in my experience there is a little difference. I've done a small test because of a shoot in a 60Hz country and in the higher fps area the ccd sensor is more sensitive to flicker in a 60hz frequenz compared to a 50hz. anyway i don't tested cmos but fluorescent lighting and there is a hugh problem with ccd and flicker for example.

  12. yeah i was last year at the "Cinec" and there was a stand-up from Lightpanels. But i think personally that there are better panels out there and that these don't worth the money. For example from DedoWeigert or Arri there are much better lightpanels with changeable colortemperatur and they are colourfast.
