  1. Hi everyone, I just wanted to get some feedback on a new short film that we released for a zombie webseries we created. My buddies and I are dedicating our YouTube channel to short zombie and horror films and we want to create good stuff that people like (so we need to know what people think). This was shot with a Canon 5D MIII and a Canon Rebel T4i + 18-135mm STM lens. We messed up huge on the shots at the end and they came out too noisy. Would like to know what other cinematographers think of our other scenes and how we might improve.
  2. Funny you should mention it -- just opened up our brand new 18% gray card! Thanks again.
  3. Thanks, Bill. You hit the nail on the head regarding the greenish tones. We color corrected our film on a monitor that was calibrated, but had a poor color gamut. After we released the film, I started watching our movie on other computers and I noticed that the tones were off. Since then, I've researched proper color correction techniques (historgrams, vectorscopes, and parades). I wish I would've done that earlier because it would've been obvious that our footage wasn't properly white balanced and that it was skewed too much away from blue, despite what we were seeing on our monitor. For the establishing shot, we were afraid to bring up the mids and highlights because there was a fair amount of grain. That's why the shot ended up looking so dim, as you mentioned. Since the shoot, I realized we probably should have overexposed on our Sony A7s (+2) and darkened the footage in post (and applied noise reduction as necessary). Anyway, thanks so much for taking the time to watch our film and comment on it. I really appreicate the constructive feedback. I'm hoping we learned from this experience and improve next time. Cheers!
  4. If you got a couple of minutes to spare, check out our new short horror film: "Death in C Minor" This is one of our first attempts at a short film horror film. Shot with the Sony A7s and the Rokinon Cine 35mm and 50mm Lenses. We weren't too satisfied with some of our lighting and camera work (among other things). We want to improve our craft, so let us know what you think -- good, bad, and ugly. Thanks, Jason R

  6. A review we made of the Canon Rebel T4i + 18-135mm STM kit lens. Thought this might be helpful for those who want to see the T4i +18-135 AutoFocus in action:

  8. Anyone have any experience with the following cameras and know which one is best for shooting a wedding? Panasonic HVX200A Sony FS100U Canon C100 There's going to be a good mix of indoor and outdoor shots -- I'll need something that performs well under low light conditions; has fast & accurate AF, and has a decent wide & tele range. Any recommendations? Thanks!
