  1. True ... But actually this is what works yeah. 3d modelling is way more difficult than purchasing models and editing them in this software! Very intuitive!
  2. I just installed Unreal Engine after a lot of reading comparisons... It seems unreal engine is a lot more user friendly with a nicer overall, photorealistic result. I actually contacted Ian Hubert, trying to pay him for this exact job but I couldnt get in touch. Looks like he relies on his patreon and youtube and no way to hire him.
  3. Yeah, the terraforming is the tricky part, that animation you sent is great btw 😄 I'm thinking of recommending we scrap the idea, only a few thousand dollar budget... could look awful!
  4. Hello, I would like to create a shot, where the planet around my green screen subject suddenly starts growing nature, sky blues up etc, after he drinks a drink. Does anyone here think they could pull this off? If so, please let me know, budget is available 🙂
  5. The bigger issue is losing the blue sea and sky when it gets overcast! Only one light can brighten them up...
  6. Thanks Satsuki, fantastic feedback! Firstly for the sun. Luckily I got the wide angles first, closeups are easier to push the key/bounces closer. We had some sun but it went a bit cloudy and lost color in the sky faster than planned so I just had to over saturate in post. Totally agree on the script... It's really my weakpoint and for the next video I will encourage the client to make budget for someone to create the story for me to shoot. They also insist on it being 1 minute long but Im going toake a much faster cut for myself and (probably them when they see it). P.s if you
  7. Hi guys, just about finished the edit, thought I'd get a little feedback and show you guys what I ended up coming up with, just before I do a few final touches in the morning before posting. What do you think? 😶 Just to add, we lost the sun middle of the shoot, first day in months 😅 Think it just passes though!
  8. Thankyou, I'll hopefully get a nice result and share some stills here in case it's of any interest 🙂 Shooting tomorrow.
  9. Whoops... Swap the position of the rim light to negative fill side at least now I look back. Decided on the led anyway in case it's of anyone's interest, shall post some stills after shooting this Wednesday.
  10. One thing is, Do you guys think a silver bounce 45 degrees to the left would be better than 300w aputure ledsx2 for the hairlight?
  11. Thanks as usual Satsuki! Great advice and close to what I am thinking already, just having to shoot a little earlier in the day due to not wanting to lose the vibrant blue background. Wish the sun was a bit more to the right! I Guess I'll start with the product closeup then get the other shots 🙂
  12. Hi Satsuki. It's mostly shots of the models having fun together, play guitar, chit chat. Some wide then some closeups. The worry about shooting much later in the day is the sun would come into the shot as it sets directly in the background I want to use. I.e the distant palms and horizon. Do you think what I'm proposing won't look good?
  13. Hi guys! So I thought I'd ask some feedback from some of you seasoned cinematography gurus here. This week I'll be shooting a low budget fruit juice TVC on a tropical beach. My plan that id like feedback on is as follows. Start shooting at 11am so I can use the sun. 10 foot overhead 1.5 stop diffusion with foam or silver reflector to the left, and negative fill to the right. The 5 models will be sitting on brown towels on the sand. The sun will set directly behind my talent, slightly off to the right. So I'm aiming to shoot from 11 till 2, the shots where I need that scene at least. Oh I'
  14. The latest gen 5 out for bmraw is really quite low contrast. In the past it really killed a lot of the detail and often looked pretty ugly. I would be confident in saying the above was at best gen 3 color cause or the age but likely gen 1 or 2. Anyway thanks guys a lot of good info here 🙂
  15. Great advice as usual! Ah I see I'm confusing the term specular highlights then. I just meant any hard ugly bright spec of highlight that has exploded way out of control. On skin, polarizers do a great job with them when placed 90 degrees approx from the camera. Actually it's too many filters stacked together though, I'd need to use a mattebox or slimmer profile filters to do this realistically.
