“MAX” - Short movie filmed with Canon 7D
Jean-Michel Tari Jean-Michel Tari is offline January 19th, 2010, 08:35 AM

Hi everyone,

Here is my latest short movie filmed with a Canon 7D. I will soon be travelling aboard for an important movie project involving two 7D, so this short is a kind of quality and workflow test.
Everything was filmed in one day.
I hope you’ll like it guys ;-)

J-M: Nice trick!!! Wonderful... It is nice to feel as if you have seen a full feature film while having lunch at the computer.

...and when you think of all those 'behind the scenes' shots of studio cameras on cranes and dollys with big crews .. then, this with a DSLR in one day ..even more impressive.

Thanks for the entertainment. Cheers.

I loved this little piece. Excellent work! Great performances from the actors too.

I obviously love the shallow DOF that makes this piece look so good, but I do wonder what f/stop most was shot at. There are a few scenes where "Max" is moving a around in a small area and you can see him move in and out of the focal area. The camera operator attempts and does a pretty good job compensating for this but I am wondering if this could have been helped by stopping down a little? Is it possible to do that and deepen the depth of field a little so that the actor stays in focus all through that little range, yet keep the background out of focus? I am seriously inquiring, not criticizing as I am waiting on my 7D to arrive. I have been stuck in 1/3 CCD land so I crave a shallow DOF that 35mm lenses bring, but I am also aware that it can be easy to go so shallow as to introduce focus issues.

Great job and looking forward to your reply.

Jean-Michel,

Great work, good performances too - makes a huge difference.

I assume you posted at 1080 in cineform. Can you give me an insight into any problems you encountered with the footage in terms of resolution/moire problems?

thanks

Hi Paul,

I've worked at 1080 resolution but I didn't post Cineform file directly on vimeo, I've output it in H264.
I had only one problem with moire. It was on the shoot where the mustache guy is seated on the sofa and advance in direction of the camera in order to talk to MAX. At one point the shirt get moire. It was quite obvious and not useable. But we made several takes so I was able to pick antother one. Moiré is also visible few times on the hair of the mustache guy (close-up).

Jean-Michel,

Thanks for the info. I don't suppose you have any full res samples of the bad take i can see? I'm trying to get a handle on how bad things can get and whether anything can be done about them in post...

thanks
paul

It DOES NOT feel and look like a "B " movie! I feel that is the best compliment I can give you. What you have done in a day shoot proves what you can accomplish with creativity and a great tool like the 7D. Impressed!!

Thank you for sharing this great short with all of us!

Very exciting - i am totally impressed about look and story.

Can you tell me a little bit about you workflow on set?

- How many minutes of footage you shoot - about 2 hours?

- Is the 7D been for long periodes in liveview mode to set up the scenes?

- Have you any problems with overheating issure?


I will buy a 7D oder 5D II in the next month for shooting narrativ films and i have problems with my decision. The main problem on the 5D II will be that there is no HD Output while recording (i hope this will "fixed" with the new 24/25p firmware). On the 7D i not sure if overheating can became a problem for me.

It would have taken me a day to shoot the piano and the car.

That was great.

Lol! I loved it! It maybe could have been cut and edited down to about half...but that ending really made me chuckle.
A wonderful job, especially as it was done in such a short time and on a very limited budget. In fact far better than a lot of trash big-budget movies I've watched in recent years.

I think this is something like 2 hours yes. It was 2 and half CF card (16gig) so 49mn x 2.5

- Is the 7D been for long periodes in liveview mode to set up the scenes?
I use it always in live view mode. But it shut down automatically after few minutes.

- Have you any problems with overheating issure?
Absolutly no problem with that. I just come back from a shooting with two 7d in Lebanon and we never meet this problem.
