Vertical Anamorphic

Recommended Posts

Just spotted this on the cooke website:

Very unique look by having the anamorphic lens stretch vertically. I'd be keen to try this on my next short, since I'm looking for a different texture and conventional anamorphic is getting a bit ubiquitous. If done on a 4K or 6K camera you'd still have a decent amount of resolution to work with even if you cropped down to 1.85 or 2.39... enough for a 2K finish anyways...

hmmmm interesting

Any one else done something similar?

This is what I'm doing right now.

I'm using my Kinefinity Mavo LF with anamorphic projection lens turn the unconventional way.

I'm preparing a music video shot like this and it is kind of a new way to frame the picture. Imust admit that I quite like it.

Fortunately, the Mavo LF has an vertical internal desqueeze for experimentation like this and it helps a lot.

I did a tes with a Kowa 8Z and an Helios 44-2 58mm as taking lens, here the results.

Anamorphic 2x conventional:

I've actually ended up doing this with my Isco Ultra Star by complete accident when I was recording some short test footage with it for the first time. I had my DSLR cropped to 4:3 and didn't pay proper attention to how I aligned the lenses so at the end of the night when I loaded the footage into Resolve and de-squeezed it, I had a good laugh after realizing I essentially created the dreaded "vertical-recording iPhone" look.
