  9. Sometimes you stumble upon projects that are really really rewarding and where you can express yourself as an artist. Médicos Del Mundo is one of them. Chema Sayago, a producer friend of mine, gave me a call one day and asked me if I was available to shoot a project for a NGO with no money. I obviously said yes. He told me that the director was going to be Borja Larrondo, whom I didn't know at the time. I was a bit nervous about that because he is a really good director, amazing photographer, has everything super clear and his work is always extremely impressive. On top of that he has a couple of awards like a Lion from Cannes and a Clio.. so nothing big haha! Anyways! We met through a Skype call and we connected straight away.. he is such a humble person! and super open to ideas from collaborators! It was like if I had been talking to a friend of mine whom I had known since we were kids! Hence, I took the first plane on that day from Dublin to Madrid and we started doing our location scouting on the following day. We had 10 locations to shoot in just 1 day (12 hours) so we went to the locations a couple of times before the shooting day to make sure that we knew what we wanted to do, how we wanted to do it and what kind of things we could improvise. That prep time was fundamental for us to be able to shoot that fast. At some point we started to think that it would be interesting to mix formats and create the sense of despair and loneliness through different shots of the locations, in 35mm in order to get a rougher image than the one that the Alexa was going to give us. And we shot on 35mm too! which added a bit of pressure (as if we didn't have any!) to our schedule... mainly because it had to be edited and graded 3 days after the shooting day and as there was a weekend in between the cost of processing and scanning in Cinelab was astronomic for our production, so we decided to not process the film during the weekend and wait for them to process it during the week. They edited the project leaving empty spaces for the 35mm shots and the producers convinced the client to wait for those shots because they were going to make the project way better.. and when the shots came in Borja chose the ones that he liked, Nuria (our editor) inserted them and I went to the colour grading place for 15 minutes to make sure that they looked exactly as we wanted them to look. I've to say that all the team behind the project was really supportive of all our ideas, from the producers to the client and the crew. All spectacular! The companies which supported this endeavour were fantastic as well so thanks to everybody! The Director's Cut has English subtitles and a different music, coming from Nicolas Jaar, who let us use one of his songs. The Client version doesn't have English subtitles and has a lot of 35mm stuff. I think that both are very good! Medicos Del Mundo - Director's Cut - English Subtitles Medicos Del Mundo https://vimeo.com/305734573 - We shot on Alexa Mini and Arricam LT + Leica Summilux and Kodak Vision 3 5219 pushed 1 stop. Colour graded by Noemi Lallave in El Colorado (Madrid) I hope you like it!

  13. Hello, I have a couple projects coming up where I will be shooting in dark environments. One is a TVC of people against a dark gradient background and the other is a short film of night exteriors and interiors. I recently noticed some noise in the blacks when shooting with the Alexa Mini at 800 iso. Has anyone else found this? Are people rating this camera lower when shooting in dark settings to raise the shadow detail. I’ve always done this with Sony but didn’t think it was necessary with Alexa as well. Thanks for you help Michael
  14. At the beginning of September I had the chance to shoot a series of commercials for Leroy Merlin in Spain. We shot 4 x 20" commercials + 1 x 30" in a couple of days in a house on the outskirts and I had to create all the light. I've to say that I learnt a lot during the process because the director, Amar Hernandez, wanted a very particular look.. with the light mimicking the sunlight entering into the rooms in a really imperfect way.. and even though we couldn't do that at the end he definitely changed the way I look at light now. I don't know how to describe it but I started to see patterns in light and I started being aware of how light creates shadows on objects and people, specially faces. This might sound very silly because I already knew how light worked, I've been seeing light and shadows since I was born :D but I wasn't applying it to the way I was working and I was definitely discriminating images or ideas. Since I met him, I have been applying it to my lighting ideas and I really think that I am a better photographer now because of him and how he directed me towards something that I didn't know that was there! We wanted to use the Alexa LF for this project mainly because there are some objects in the commercial and we wanted them to be more isolated. However, we didn't use it because we found out that the LF sensor had a problem (you can see the stitching line in the middle of the image) and we went for the Alexa Mini. Anyways! Enough with the backstory! Here is the director's cut of the commercial. Leroy Merlin - Procrastrinación 1) The living room is lit with a M90 coming from outside and a joker leko in the interior to create the shadows on the floor. 2) The bathroom is lit with 2 Aladdin LED panels on the ceiling, a M18 outside the window and a Joker Leko pointed towards the sink for no reason other than "I like it" B) 3) The bedroom at night was lit with a couple of blondes with CTB outside and a Celeb on top of them, 4) The bedroom during day time was lit with a M90 (that you can see) outside the window. 5) The cat (which is the shot that I love the most) was lit with a pocket par to create the flare in camera and a 575W flagged to create the shadow. 6) The girl in the room is lit with a M90 from outside.. I wanted the pattern on the wall to be more prominent but it was impossible for us to make it harder.. and when we finished shooting that part my gaffer moved the head of the light to switch it off and created a mega hard shadow on the wall that we all saw and loved but we couldn't reshoot because we didn't have time to do so. And that's pretty much all! When they did the colour grading I was in Mallorca working but they were super kind and sent me some frames for me to take a look at it. Even though I think that the saturation is a bit high and the shadows are super lifted (We created images with more contrast and not that saturated) I think that it looks good! We shot on Alexa Mini + Zeiss Superspeeds @3200 ASA I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed shooting it! Have a lovely day!
  15. I'm selling my Alexa Mini that is in perfect shape. I purchased this back in 2017 when I was visiting Germany for a shoot. The Mini has never been rented out to anyone. It has low hours because I haven't been shooting lately due to family problems, divorce, etc. So the Alexa still looks and works brand new. http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?171407-Alexa-Mini-Package Asking Price: $59,000 OBO for the package below. $45,000 OBO for only the body. 1x ALEXA Mini Body (with 4/3 & Arriraw licenses) (130hrs) 1x ARRI ALEXA Mini Viewfinder MVF-1 2x ARRI ALEXA Mini to MVF-1 75cm Viewfinder Cable 1x ARRI Titanium PL Mount LDS with L-Bus Connector 1x ARRI MMB-2 Mini Matte Box Basic LWS Set 2x IDX System Technology CUE-D75 73Wh Li-Ion V-Mount Battery 2x Bebob Factory GmbH V155RM-CINE 14.8V 155Wh High Load V-Mount Li-Ion Battery 1x Bebob Factory GmbH 2-Channel Simultaneous Charger (V-Mount) 1x Wooden Camera ARRI Alexa Mini Accessory Kit (Base) 1x UVF Mount 1x WC-V Mount 1x Ethernet Cable RJ-45 1x CamBag HD Large 3x CFast 2.0 Card Reader 1x Rod Clamp 1x 15mm Rod 3x CFast 2.0 Card 128GB I paid a little over $70,000 in total for this package so you will be saving some money and time. If you are thinking about purchasing a body brand new on AbelCine then first get in touch with me. You will only be paying $4000 extra for a complete package. I tested the camera out and I can honestly rate the condition a 9.5 out of 10. It's not a 10 out of 10 because It's not unopened or brand new in the box. But it has low hours, function and looks new. The package is located in Lawrence, Kansas so feel free to come check it out. Shipping is no issue and I can ship anywhere in the world. Please get in touch if you are interested and for pictures, etc - jasonsinclairdp@gmail.com Looking forward and hoping to get this sold before next month. Cheers
  16. Hi guys, A month ago I had the great opportunity to shoot 5 commercials for a health insurance company in Spain with my friend Jota Aronak. The premise of the 5 commercials was to make bright, warm, inviting and low contrast images so we decided to do that BUT giving it a little bit of character. The project involved a lot of CGI and I had to maintain the same type of light for all the spaces in the 5 commercials so I decided to not let natural light in, which, when you don't have a great budget and have to emulate the sun is a bit difficult! But we tried our best, the client ended up being super mega happy and we had so much fun shooting them in the 2 days that we had scheduled for them, we even finished a bit earlier on the second day! :D :D I've wanted to use the Cooke S5 lenses since Adam started that thread on here so I gave them a go on these ads.. and I fell in love with them!! I also used a lot of filters but the overall image coming from the Cooke S5 is really beautiful on its own. I will use them again probably and hopefully very soon! :) hence.. thanks Adam and Freya!!! The colour grading was done in El Colorado by Jorge Jesús. So, here we go! The 1st commercial out of the 5 :) Sanitas Hope you like it! :) Have a lovely day.

  18. Hi guys! I just wanted to share with you my first proper car commercial! (At last! :D) We shot the car and lake scenes during one day at the end of February in a beautiful place up in the mountains in Madrid. Jota and myself wanted to shoot it there because there was snow (production value!) and the lake looked stunning so we convinced everybody to shot there! Now, Two days before shooting there was really bad weather as in a lot of wind and heavy snow all the time and the night before shooting there was rain so we thought: Well, this time we are not going to get away with this ha! But somehow we got lucky and we had really good weather (cloudy) when we wanted it and some atmospheric snow when we wanted it so we couldn't be happier. Anyways! here you go! Toyota - Conduce como piensas We shot the car and the lake scenes on Alexa + Master Primes and the rest on a bunch of other cameras, including Minidv, iPhone and Lomokina :) Lighting wise we used a M18 with chimera on the Low-loader for the car interiors and a 2 meters x 2 meters frame with a double net for the exteriors to add contrast. Hope you like it! Have a lovely day!

  20. I've always had problems capturing strobes when shooting digital video (either the shutter misses the strobe entirely or only captures a portion of it). I've used the paparazzi light from Lightning Strikes before and it's great, but for this scene I need to see the lights strobe in the frame as the actor takes pictures (actor needs to be able to pull the trigger on them). 1) Any strobes out there that are good to capture digitally? Shooting on the Alexa mini 23.98. 2) Any tricks? I can change the shutter if necessary. Thanks. -Andrew

  22. I'm filming a short comedy musical in about a month using an alexa mini + zeiss ultra primes ....this is for broadcast television and we're shooting 4k ...my director likes the idea of changing aspect ratios in real time...for instance: we are on a close up of some performer in 16:9 and all of a sudden they break into a song and the aspect ratio changes in front of our eyes to 2.39:1 ...here are some questions I have: -has anyone done something like this? if so what are the challenges for pulling this off? -in your opinion how can this blend with camera movements? for example pushing in/ pulling back on a dolly and changing from 16:9 to 2.35:1 ... thanks in advance!
  23. Does anyone have experience with the dedicated B4 mount for the Alexa Mini or Amira? I have an Amira with a PL mount and use the B4 adapter, however there seem to be quite a few issues with the image that is created. With a Fujinon 22x there is quite a bit of distortion to the image. I'm curious if anyone has tried the B4 mount and had better results.
  24. Hi guys. I've been hired on a job shooting on an Alexa Mini and I will need to power my Preston MDR 2 from the camera body as I know the body hasn't got any power outputs as standard. What are my options for power output/cables aside from the obvious D-tap option? I dont mind ordering a cable from somewhere like Media Blackout. Thanks for your time, Joe
