New Commercial: LEX + HVX + Zeiss HS

Hi there,

some of you maybe have already read about my shooting experiences with the LEX. Interesting no one had any comment on that...

Anyway. Here is the result which I directed and shot:

Shot with HVX / P2 / LEX / ZEISS HS lenses, posted with Final Cut Pro and After Effects, mastered on DVCPro HD.

Greetings
Rafael

Pretty Awesome. Good work with Sound / Lighting techniques. I didn't care for the punchline but you had me all the to the briefs. Great work!

Thank´s!

AE was used for greenscreen compositing in the window - the city (Frankfurt Downtown), the rain and the flashes are done there.

And - I forgot - some dolly tracks have been removed (when tracking over the desk) from the floor...

I used my P+S Skater Mini for the shots on the floor in the corridor.
The rest was shot using a Magnum Dolly and/or a mini jib arm.

You should be proud, it looks like a very large budget production!

it look great very very sharp

i am owner of the letus35fe and shoot with it over 50 projects

i like my letus very much but the light loss is sometime killing me and the problem with bright light or white areas when i see the pattern of the GG

what i saw you did look very good and pro

i am shore the rig look pro to which is important when you work on commercial

i am very interested to read about your exp shooting with LEX?

so you own pl mount for the HS do you own other Monte do you own set of lenses

can i see pic of the rig ?

I´ve posted my experiences on that shooting in the Letusextreme forum:

http://www.letusdirect.com/letus35-e...periences.html


I own a PL and a Nikon mount. I have a wide range of Nikon lenses all with gears.

I didn´t make any photo of the rig during the shooting - maybe some of the other guys did. Maybe I´ll get one of it...

The gear I´ve used was HVX, LEX, MB16, Chrosziel FF Studio Rig, Marshall TFT, Cavision Baseplate, O´Connor Head and a set of Zeiss HS primes.

do you need to use gears for the ZEISS HS or you use the one on the lens

I used the Zeiss HS gears for sure - why putting extra gears on PL lenses???
