  1. Hi guys, im new here, and i'd like some advice. I own a Canon 6d + 24-105mm, and i'm going to shoot a music video for a hip hop/trap artist. I've only shot a hardcore punk music video, and it was very fast paced and with several cuts. This time it seems to be different. Upon searching references, such as Post Malone, Travis Scott, etc, most, if not all videos rely heavily on slow motion scenes. Even the song the artist sent me is much calmer and sort of romatic than the others. But since the 6d can't shoot faster than 30fps at 1080p (if can with magic lantern, but the tests i made d
  2. I'm shooting a short narrative that involves several scenes of two people talking at interior doorways. I've attached photos below to give you a sense of the framing as well as photos of our actual location. Our lighting package includes a couple aladdin LEDs, a leko and a skypanel s-60. My plan is to use the aladdin's to key the man from camera left and possibly tape a bounce to the door to get a little return on his fill side. I'm unsure if that plan will work due to the tight space and won't be able to scout this location in person until the day before our shoot next week. Do you guys h
  3. Hey folks, been lurking around here for little over a year now. This is my first post looking for insight, not sure if this fits here or should be elsewhere. I'll be shooting on a really low budget (~25k) feature in Mississippi this fall. I'm located and have been working primarily in Arizona, and neighboring states here and there. We are looking for a camera package and naturally, we don't have the money to pay full rate or even half rate. I'm not expecting to shoot on anything high end. I would just like to put together a reliable package that is able to produce the images I'm lo
  4. Hello all - I'm completely new to these forums, and already excited to start delving deep into all the information here. Just wanted to share a trailer for my feature, DON'T. STOP. RUNNING. which, as is often the way with microbudget indies - I wrote, directed AND shot... Never again...! I used a BMPCC and a range of M43, C Mount, M42 and Arri B-mount secondhand and new lenses, and was amazed to see the quality we could get from that little camera. We shot, for the most part, outside in a British summer (occasional bits of sunshine interspersed with long periods of slate grey skies) with
  5. **Questions marked in bold** **Attachment was too dark and compressed, a better one with the correct contrast can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=16205F-smKu5lcB0M3lOmPKfVdkCIG_yp** Dear all, I am currently working on a short project with an extremely tight budget and minimal crew. About half of it will be taking place at nighttime (roughly 15 extremely still wides and a couple of close-ups with some tilting/panning involved). Due to the limited resources available, I started considering a day4night approach pretty early on. I bought a variety of filt
  6. Hey everyone, I'm a film student working on a project that requires me to shoot a model miniature. The problem is, the model is inside a protective glass case. It's only about an inch thick, but I can't remove it. Any tips for lighting the model through the glass? The model is fairly large (6 ft x 6 ft) so I was thinking of using a soft fill on the opposite side than I am shooting to reduce glare but that's kind of restrictive to the shots I can get. Not sure if anyone has done anything like this before but I thought I'd ask. Thanks! Zach
  7. Does anybody know where I can find a list of micro-budget (under $100K US) feature films that are streaming somewhere online? Preferably recent films--last five years, if I can find them. I'm producing and directing a film along those lines and want to research the competition, but can't figure out how to find these movies. Everything I've tried Googling just yields a list of breakout indies or classic zero-budget indies I've already seen. Where are the sorta-good, sorta-shitty movies that don't suck but didn't necessarily break out? Thanks!!
  8. I did my first attempt at directing a music video for an english songwriter in France. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vL-DjKGCmEY I shot with a Canon 600D in the forest and mostly shot everything at 50fps to do some slow motion since I thought it would go right with the song. Also played the song at a high speed so that in postproduction the singer would be singing at the right tempo but with everything else in slow motion. Besides the shots from the story, I made my guy sing in a close up, in a mid shot from below, and also filmed the guitar in a close up
  9. I couldn't find any specific post about this. In May I will be gaffing a feature with about 12 shooting days with a budget around $30,000. I've worked for this director before on a bigger budget feature, but only as an AC. He always pays on time. I'll be working on the film no matter the rate, because principal photography isn't that long, because I want to continue to work with him, and his features keep getting more and more budget (John Debney just scored his last feature, the one I worked on). But he's just doing this one for fun. What would I charge for my day rate as gaffer with a budget
  10. I just read an article (http://nofilmschool.com/2016/02/cameras-used-sundance-2016-filmmakers-why) about the cameras used by DOP for the films at Sundance 2016, I notice there’re a bunch of film shot entirely or partially with BlackMagic, and cameras such as 7D, 5D Mark3 and C100. I see there’s no Sony a7 series cameras being used. What do you think you guys about the new Sony a6300 expected for march 2016? could it live up to be a camera for low budget film, with external record? being the internal sampling 4:2:0? what could the market be for it? or why would people pre
  11. I'm shooting a music video. The shot is a a low angle slow tracking shot in a pie-wedge sort of shape around Satan sitting on his motorcycle as he puts out the cigarette on a horn. I wanted to have a curtain, set behind Satan, I think of some translucent material, in the bokeh, filling the frame, with a orange or red source shining through the curtain. Imagining moving the curtain to create an effect of an impression of a hellish background. Any ideas ? I'm thinking of placing the lights on the ground illuminating the curtain that way...any thoughts? Shot lasts about 4 seconds.
  12. Hello all, this is my first post here and I really need some advice on how to go about that! I have a project coming up which involves interior and exterior shots. My main concern is lighting the outdoors night scenes. The scene involves two actors having a dialogue while they go about dumping a body in a car. This takes place at night. Mood: Dark as possible - its is a murder after all, mysterious. The only source of light is kind of a Sodium Light high up on the wall next to them which is pretty strong if they stand on its range. (and some other lights in the distant background
  13. So I'm shooting a short film and it mostly takes place at night on the road inside a car, and I have a very low budget, it's supposed to look like a kind of b horror/grindhouse movie. My inspiration of the lighting is Deathproof by QT, here's a picture and basically I'm looking to light my scene exactly like that, my question is, how can i achieve this cheaply? which lights do you recommend and how do i place them? Thanks
  14. Hi, I'm making a short film next year, and one of the scenes features two people walking the streets of a city, much like this ( see video below ) i was wondering if anyone could tell me what is the best way to light the actors to get that city night feel? or do i need any other lights at all, will the ambient light of the city do? keeping in mind my rig will consist of a glide cam, and a Canon c100 mk 2. so not much room for big lighting rigs moving with the camera, also its quite low budget film. any thoughts? Thanks Gabe
  15. Hi Guys, Pls Check out my new music video. Shot on Canon 5D Mark III, Zeiss lenses, With a very low budget ($ 800) so i Graded myself with DaVinci Resolve Lite.
  16. Last friday I made a new thread in the lightning section to ask for tips an advice on how to shoot a film noir. (http://www.cinematography.com/index.php?showtopic=63816) I'll first explain something about the project. I participated in a dutch 48-hour competition this weekend as a cinematographer. 48 Hour is a competition held regularly in The Netherlands in which numeral film-teams compete against each other by creating a short movie from concept to completion in just one weekend. During the kick-off of the event every team get's randomly assigned to a genre. We got Film Noir. I was real
  17. Hi I'm just on my way out of uni so pretty new to cinematography and am shooting a night time scene between two people lit by candle light. I will be shooting on a canon DSLR and only really have a few simple dedo lights available to light the scene. Anyone got any advice on how to get enough light that I wont have to crank the ISO too high? Cheers.
  18. Im shooting a short film this weekend and the director wants a shot of a man shovelling dirt off the "lens" to reveal the himself standing over a hole in the ground in the forest. a Very classic Breaking Bad shot. Would love any advice as to how I should accomplish this... I've rented a Wide angle low angle Prism for the shot and I'm planning on buying a big sheet of plexi glass to put over the camera and cover with dirt. Any ideas (besides digging a massive hole in the ground) Thanks, Cole
