  2. Hello, Here i would like to clear some questions raised before starting a new project.. as i shared my equipment i have and the question how to use them for better result.. I am now doing a job for the first time on DSLR and have so many questions and need all the help you all can provide. The gear available to me: 5d3, 1dx Zeiss 14, Zeiss 35, Zeiss 135 (on its way) Fluid head tripod. Lexar 1000x 32gb UDMA 7 card A three year old Imac for editing. Nature of job and crew: I will be going to small villages and shoot lifestyles of people as artistically as I can. I will shoot lots of interviews with audio. I have a focus puller and lighting assistant. I want efficient frill free equipment set up that does the job. However, keeping gear light is not the first requirement, getting professional output is. The edited videos will be viewed mostly on internet and at times projected on a mid size screen. My questions: 1. Do I need another monitor besides the LCD on the camera to check focus etc? 2. Which is the best slider for price for DSLR? 3. Which is the best way to record audio? Do I record on camera or external recorder and sync using a slate? I have a BeachTek DXA-SLR available for free. Is it any good? 4. Should I use Magic Lantern software or original Canon RAW? If magic lantern, then which version? 5. What is the ideal ISO for video? And if not ideal, what is the acceptable range for noise free work. 6. Is 1/50 the only shutter speed to work at or it does not matter? 7. Will my Imac be ok for the edit? I will not buy an Imac now until it is refreshed, but just want to prepare myself on the speed of edit. Thank you!
  3. 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 really excited that we got this genre, because I could do so much with the lighting! All the participating teams get a different genre, but they all have to incorporate the following things into their movie: Prop : a red dress. Character: Julia or Jules Mendez Line of text: "Do you always use the same side?" Unfortunately our edit pc crashed during rendering, causing us to be disqualified for entrance because we didn't make the deadline by 10 minutes.. (I still can't believe it, it sucks so bad.) But nevertheless I am really happy with my results, since this was my first time as a d.o.p. in a crew larger than 3 persons. Man this was a challenge to shoot in so little time. I think I slept a total of 8 hours during the whole weekend, but it was definitely worth it! I am really interested what you think about the movie and I would love to hear feedback from you all to improve my skills in future productions! I was responsible for placing the lights, choosing the angles and movements, operating the camera and doing the colorgrade in the end. So every advice regarding to these aspects is welcome! The film can be watched here: www.vimeo.com/twanpeeters/thedarkestdance (pass: thedarkestdance) How the scene was set up: I lit the scenes using 3x 350w Laniro redheads, two dimmers and a small dslr led panel. We didn't have the time to find blinds, so instead we carved out a blind pattern in cardboard. Harsh keylight coming from behind the blinds, fill coming from the practical and the wall. I wanted to place the back-light more behind her, but then the light would get in the shot unfortunately. I am not completely satisfied with the colorgrade yet, so I will make a better version soon. I was under so much pressure from the deadline that I had to do the whole color grade in 30 minutes. I think in some of the shots the shadows are too crushed and in others the highlights should be more or less bright. The ending shot is made on a bridge, a smoke machine, a car and one redhead. I wetted down the wooden bridge to make it a bit more shiny. Doesn't look so bad in color either! Since we had to incorporate a red dress into a film noir, I thought it would look really cool if I would remove all of the color, except for this bright red dress. We shot it infront of a black bed sheet, with two red-heads lighting our dancer from behind (one from above on the right and one from a lower angle on the left. I wanted to keep the dancer mysterious and not recognizable. As you can see on the original shot on the bottom I had a lot of noise issues with these shots. I was shooting on ISO 1600 since increasing the light intensity would take away the shadows that I wanted. (I need to get a better camera!)
