  1. Coming out in March 2017, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings Of Summer) and shot by Larry Fong, Kong: Skull Island is NOT a remake, it takes place during the 70's, and involves a scientific expedition to an uncharted island awakening titanic forces of nature, a mission of discovery becomes an explosive war between monster & man. A-list cast on board, including John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Shea Wigham, Corey Hawkins, John C. Reilly, John Ortiz, etc, etc. First trailer from Comic Con, a few months back: QT 1080p link: http://pdl.warnerbros.com/wbol/ww/movies/kongsdcc/KONG_TRAILER_1-1080.mov Second trailer out today, with a slightly different tone: QT 1080p link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/64705418/k2/KONG_SKULL_ISLAND_TRAILER_3-1080.mov Shot on the Alexa anamorphically, looks like Panavision lenses to me, C-series or E I'd say. Gotta say, Fong always does great work on film, but I've never seen the Alexa look this good, the texture is quite nice, I wonder if they added some grain, it's also really vibrant & beautiful.
  2. Hi, I stopped shooting 4-5 years ago due to a sports injury which lead me to working in another field but now I want to start shooting again and I'm feeling a bit behind in the tech, workflow and rusty in my skills. I'm lucky enough to be visiting LA early next year & I'm looking at the ASC Masterclass. I'm concerned it's not really hands on? Is it? Isn't it? I see they're using the Alexa and going through the most current workflows etc but is it mostly learning through demonstration or are we able to get our hands on the tech, lights & set up some shots? Anyone who's done it got any reviews? What did u get out of it? Can anyone recommend an int-adv Cinematography workshop that's very hands on in or around LA? I don't often get over to the US so I'd really like to grab the opportunity. Thanks.

  4. I'll be shooting a short soon and we're planning on using a Red Dragon at 6K with a set of Hawk C-Series anamorphics. I'm aware that, due to the aspect of the Dragon sensor, the resulting field of view using any given lens will be narrower than if it were shot with a 4:3 sensor such as on the Alexa. The widest focal length in the C-Series is 40mm, which on the Alexa would produce an image with a roughly equivalent FOV that a 20mm spherical might on Super 35. My question is, roughly how wide would the 40mm anamorphic appear when using the Dragon? I'm trying to work out if the 40mm will be wide enough for my needs. The reasons for choosing Dragon is for maximum resolution, given that it's a vfx heavy sci-fi. Would it be better to shoot on Alexa for maximum FOV? Or try using a set of diopters?!

  6. Hi guys! After some research, I made a little chart one every rich man's favorite camera, the Alexa, which digs into how it really works. So I thought I might as well share it. The content holds true for every Alexa I believe, since they all have pretty much the same sensors and algorithms (even the Alexa 65 I assume, who consists of three Alexa sensors merged). On the right of the table are the only available curves to my knowledge, the LogC ones. Every other curves isn't, but should be available, so here they are. Where did I find this stuff ? A combination of gathering bits of informations here and there, and the ability to think like an Arri R&D guy I guess (they always seem to make the most logical choices in sensor architecture). CLICK and enjoy for zoomable chart.
  7. Hello everybody ! I wrote a table comparing most of our favorite cameras and their technical specifications (Sensor info, recording info, weight, Mount, Power Consumption, Price ...). I was bored searching in the manuals and documentations, so this should make it a bit easier ! DIGITAL CAMERA COMPARISON Next time, I'd like to make it dynamic with an auto ranking when we click on a particular category. Cheers, Romain

  14. Hi! I'm shooting a film handheld with the arri alexa plus 4:3 and the focus puller is going to use WCU-4. I have a lightweight matte box that fits 15' rods. When we put the wireless motor on the rods it is out of reach for the lens, being that the rods are too close to the lens for the motor to reach on to it. I'm wondering how we can fit this on without using rods at all. Is this possible? If I clamp the matte box right to the lens.

  17. I have the opportunity to purchase a used Arri D-21 from a local rental shop for $6000. I have heard that the D-21 footage has a unique film like quality that surpasses most cameras, even the Alexa. Although it's dynamic range is limited to 11 stops and low lightcapabilities seem to be quite poor. Can those of you who have used the D-21 please share your experiences.
  18. Hello friends and fellow cinematographers, Not sure if anyone have posted about this topic but here it goes... Other than being able to shoot RAW from the Alexa, practically and to-the-eyes and after all the proper post correction and all, is there a huge difference between raw from Alexa and the proress 4444 XQ from the Amira? I'm sure there is a difference, but is the difference too great or are most people just being an unconscious pixel-peepers? I feel much of the discussion have put too much attention and emphasize on this issues and on the argument of which is 'truely' cinematic or fitting for cinematic use and I just want to get a simple answer once and for all. Thanks! Dave

  20. Hey guys, I've loved The Leftovers since season 1, but season 2 has just aired its second episode and I remain stunned by the cinematography, which is now done by Michael Grady (Todd McMullen for most of season 1). It's shot on the Alexa, but it looks SO distinct from everything and anything else I've seen shot on the Alexa, it feels like there's some kind of film grain added because there's a very real and vivid texture to the image, a real patina, the colors pop, but not in a harsh digital way, it doesn't look overly digital, it just really stands out, the lighting also looks beautiful, very colorful. I know they use Primos on this, but I wonder what anyone else think about this, any idea on the film grain or the look they're getting? I'm a film guy mainly, and the only stuff that impressed me on digital so far has been Skyfall, Prisoners, Sicario, A Most Violent Year (yet to see Selma, shot by Bradford Young as well), Drive, Elysium, The Social Network, Gone Girl, Her, Nightcrawler, The Revenant and The Leftovers.

  25. Hi, I have a music video shoot and we're currently deciding cameras. I prefer the look of the Alexa and want to push the Mini as we're mostly on steadicam. However we have a lot of strobe lighting during a performance sequence, making the Dragon with motion mount seem like the right way to go. Is the Studio the only option for choosing Alexa when dealing with strobes? We're shooting a range of speeds, ramping from 24 to 60fps. Thanks, Chris
