Night shoot with Zeiss CP2 lens.
Greg Risley Greg Risley is offline March 11th, 2011, 09:47 PM

The opening scene from an upcoming feature I shot for a talented local director. Shot with the Canon 7D using a Zeiss CP.2 lens and only available light. I could have used an AC to help pull focus since I was handheld for most of the shoot. Amazing lens. Wish I could own a set, but for now I'll just have to rent when needed.

Re: Night shoot with Zeiss CP2 lens.

Good job pulling your own focus wide open, not easy at all. Of course as you said, an AC would have helped.

Two battery powered lights could have elevated the visuals significantly. Some shots are just plain murky. I'm sure you were chasing the existing lighting as a key which locks you into whatever background happens to fall there (or forces you into low angles to maintain separation). What was the reasoning for no additional lighting?

As far as the overall clip--to me, some odd pacing and choices, but that's on your director.

Charles,

This is the director of Chisel, could you elaborate more on what it was that you found odd in the choices and pacing? would love some feedback!

Thanks

Chris
