  2. Hi guys Long time reader, first-time poster on the forum. Recently shot a short film, you can see here: https://vimeo.com/322197103 Would love some feedback. For context, I shot it as a one-man band, on Alexa Mini with Zeiss Superspeeds and glimmer glass. A lot of neg fill, 2 x astra litepanels and 1 x litepanels gemini.
  3. Hi Everyone. I am new to this website. My name is Tayyib Mahmood and I am a film student at Birmingham City University. I am writing a dissertation on a comparative analysis between LED and Tungsten Lighting and I need of a few interviewees. This can be done over video call (Skype). I am in need of anyone with industry experience who would like to give me their opinion on Tungsten and LED lighting and which would be dominant within the upcoming years. Thank you, Tayyib
  4. Hi everyone, I am just wondering if there are any people out there who are both directing and filming (as cinematographer) their work. And if so, what type of projects are those (short films, documentaries, etc.)? And what is your reason to do so (e.g. budget, more creative freedom, etc.)? Please note that I am not asking for a specific reason, just kind of curious. Feel free to share some examples, could be fun! Kind regards, Jaap P.s. meant to write simultaneously in the topic :P
  5. Hi guys, I'm Francesco from Italy and I just uploaded my Reel with many works realised in 2016. They are frames taken by commercial, short movie, videoclip, video art and documentary.

  6. Hi, I am a DoP on an upcoming shoot for a pair of commercials but I'm having a little trouble deciding the camera. I'm more on the lighting side than camera so I'm not to sure about which cameras are better than others. I was looking at a few but other than staring at the specs i didn't really get much information. I was looking at the Alexa, Alexa Mini, Red Weapon, Red Scarlet, Sony F3 (I've had experience with very minimal). the commercials aren't highly complicated but one of them deals with aquatic themes and the other superhero FX (such as laser beams and freezing) do any of theses cameras have a better read out in colours, which has the best mobility, do any have any serious problems, and your personal choice or opinion? once again I'm not really up on camera side of things so any information will help! Thanks
  7. I'm just wondering if anybody could break down this scene in terms of lighting for me.

  18. It seems that a DOP needs to learn to light for every situation and then tweak those according to script and specific locations. Though not exhuastive I have listed the situations in which one should practice lighting. Can you think of others that are good to practice? DAY Interiors room dramatic. Hard sunlight through windows with possibly a little fill. Interiors room soft. Huge softbox outside window with a little fill inside room if necessary. Interiors car and transports dramatic. Hard sunlight through windows with possibly a little fill. Interiors car and transports soft. Huge softbox outside window with a little fill if necessary. Exterior dramatic. Hard sunlight with some bounce fill for close ups - or recreate use mega HMI Exterior soft. Cloudy day - or recreate use mega HMI and huge diffussion screen Exterior Contre-jour.* Exterior underwater.* Exterior to Interior or vice versa** - Doorways mixing 2 of the above SUNSET/SUNRISE Pretty much the same as above but with lower sun and lower kelvin temperature. NIGHT Interior Dramatic* - such as a prison door opening. Interior Cosy - Practical lamps Interior Clinical - Strips Lights Interior Watching TVs Interior Candle scenes Interior Torches* (i.e. caves, breaking into a house etc.) Interior Moonlight coming in from outside Interior Streetlight coming in from outside Interior Car Headlights coming in from outside Interior Fires Interior Oil Lamps Interior Storm Outside* Interior Car Interior Party - disco lights. Exterior Moonlight Exterior Streetlights Exterior Car Headlights Exterior Fires Exterior Candles Exterior Torches* Exterior Storms* Exterior Underwater* Exterior to Interior or vice versa** - Doorways mixing 2 of the above SPECIAL SITUATIONS Greenscreen* Rear projection* Front projection* Smoke* Snow* Rain* I've starred some of them which I think are in particular the most difficult and need more practice on. Personally I find doorways extremely difficult especially when the exposures are different either side of the door and lighting is different e.g. walking from moonlight outside into cosy warm lit interior. Perhaps one should avoid opening doors in movies - have the character walk up to a house in the moonlight and cut as one puts the hand on the door handle to inside and hanging up a coat? Are there any movies or behind the scenes that you recommend watching for door and lighting transitions? Close-ups are not too bad it is the masters that are hard to shoot. I find torch scenes at night quite difficult because if you over crank the moonlight the torches light seems a little dim. Perhaps I need to use some 320 lumen flashlights and a bit of smoke. Though trying to get an even coverage of smoke is very tricky - amost need black garden sprinklers or tubing everywhere in a scene without it showing.
  19. Hey everybody, I'm a first time DOP working on a low budget short film, with tight deadlines and could use some help with lighting a medium size industrial type space. Its a dark rectangular room 15ft high high, 30ft long and 16 ft wide with no reflectable surfaces, except for the front wall which has a large white13x13 ft film screen on it, which I am thinking of using to bounce light off. Using 1k arri and a second light. Or a 4x4 bank kino flow. My lighting arsenal consists of two 1k tungsten fresnel arris, a 700w open faced arri, a 650w and 300w arri fresnel. And two Kino Flo 4x4 Banks. (tungsten) Some background info: We have one day to film and have 14 shots to do. The director wants a gritty realism feel. I want to keep the back ground lights stationary, to one side of the room. To create an ambient low light atmosphere through out the room. I was planning to bounce two Kino Flo 4x4 Banks off the walls, but since the walls aren't reflective bounce the kino's off foam core from the ceiling corner or just aim both Kinos at the scene from up high? Or should i light a 1k arri through a 24x36 silk to create a broader softer light source? As a key light I want dramatic directional lighting, slightly harsh. But with some fill so the shadows aren't jet black, and try to get the shadow edges a little feathered. For closeups Im thinking to use a 1k arri as a key 7ft high at a 45 degree angle with a 650w arri diffused from the barn doors as fill on the other side. And to move these two lights as needed and flood them out for lager groups off people. Any insight or opinions would be most helpful. * I have included a photo for reference of the room, on shooting day the room will be empty and darked out. Cheers, Mike

  22. Hi. I shooting a little narrative film on the Arri Alexa camera. We don´t have the time to shoot a test before we start shooting and I watched some test online about how high you can go with the ISO in the camera in low light locations. Do anyone in here have good experience with the Alexa camera? And how high can I put the cameras ISO with out seeing to much noise in the blacks? Thanks, Henrik www.henrikameyer.com

  25. Hey Everyone, I was wondering if I could get some feedback on the lighting and camera movement in this short film I shot. I'm fairly young and new to the industry. I've learned through on set experience and from reading as well as watching films. I must say american cinematographer magazine has been one of the most helpful resources i've ever used. Anyways, back to the point here is the film. 95% of the shots are mine, except for a couple cut aways in the restaurant scene. Its online here: http://markaklassen....r-film-festival Thanks so much! i look forward to collaborating more with this community.
