  1. What Simon said plus open up an additional stop and keep the focus tight.
  2. This is an interesting read I can recommend in regards to the subject. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6261300-how-not-to-make-a-short-film There is an audiobook available too.
  3. There's a Super 16 Arri SR2 for salew on BB-List: https://www.bblist.co.uk/item.php?item=76133 Not mine, btw.

    Filter 85

    If you shoot in daylight, yes, an 85 filter plus 2/3 of a stop compensation. You can also shoot without a filter and ask the lab to grade for daylight when scanning.
  5. Thanks Robyn! I'll better do a bit more research.
  6. Thanks David, this makes sense. It's a real pain though, especially since only a few months ago this would not have been an issue.
  7. It is difficult to find information about traveling from the UK to EU with professional camera equipment for personal use. Do I need a carnet even though the filming is for a non-commercial, personal project? I am traveling with wife and son and planning on taking a flight case with an Arriflex 235, batteries, a couple of prime lenses and a matte box. Has anyone had any experience with this since Brexit?
  8. Thanks Satsuki. We used tracking markers on the window panes and moved the camera freely on a dolly and jib.
  9. We shot this Mr. Sheen commercial nearly 20 years ago (aargh!) in an apartment in Brussels. Filmed at night, four or five 20k HMIs outside the windows. The London skyline was added in post. Here it was the only way to keep the lighting consistent.
  10. As far as I know, the owner of Ice Film London still owns a Penelope. I offered to buy it a few years ago but was told that he would probably never let it go šŸ˜‰
  11. Hi Raymond, I get everything scanned through Kodak and don't know if there is a difference in scanners used. I don't think so. There are a couple that were scanned at 2k rather than 4k which makes quite a difference. Yep, time flies. Hopefully on celluloid, if still available.
  12. Thank you Satsuki! My wife is terrific. She is so patient and supportive. Iā€™m very lucky.
  13. Thanks Heikki! Yes, the follow focus is a tricky challenge. Almost impossible on your own as you can see in some of the softer shots. The metering I find less of a problem, it's often quite easy to guess. Getting my son to not turn his back and run off as soon as you roll camera is the trickiest part šŸ˜‰
  14. Here's the 4th installment, should you be interested. A little long at 4 1/2 minutes. This is primarily for my family to enjoy hence the slower pacing. The first few shots are 200T and the rest shot on 50D and 250D. My boy is growing fast and it is getting difficult to catch him in front of the lens. Looking forward to more filming in the summer with hopefully less Covid restrictions.
