4 short films for UK TV using Brevis and XDCAM HD

Can they work together? How well can adaptor footage cut in with sharp HD video?

Well, with the correct grading it can really complement the HD stuff.

I have just shot 4 short films called "Life of Crime" for Sky TV in the UK. They go out from the 4th of June on Sky News and hopefully Channel 5.

Attached are two graded stills from the shoot with Great train Robbery mastermind Bruce Reynolds. One is Bruce the other is Crime Correspondent, Martin Brunt. Both shot on the JVCHD201 and the Brevis 35mm with CF3L and a nikon 35mm f1.4 lens.

this is a very short snippet of stuff just on the brevis cf3. It's only a rough edit as am still working on them.

That's good to hear. A 35mm adaptor is something that I've been interested in experimenting with, but I've noticed a few posts claiming that in order to focus you need an HD monitor.

ideally yes...the jvc viewfinder is pretty sharp but there is some guesswork there without the monitor. Using it with the HVX is impossible without a monitor

just realised my title is misleading. The Brevis was used with the JVC201 and the xdcam hd was shot clean without any adaptors. This thread is more about how well you can cut 35mm adaptor stuff in with hd video

Don't forget to watch Sky News from Tuesday for these three films. They will be running all day...as often as every hour hopefully but realistically every couple...

They are also be promo'd from today on Sky.

I hope you like them!!
