HD100s best friends - Tim, Paulo & Stephen

I've been testing different scene files from these gentlemen for a low-budget indie feature film. Principal photography begins in 2 weeks. Here are my results compiled in a 1:32 sec. clip (not scientific in any means) . But it's fun to watch the different looks designed by Tim, Paulo and Stephen.

Seller's remorse...

George,

Great looking images. I've had buyer's remorse many times, but this may be the first time I've had seller's remorse. Yes, sometimes I wonder if I did the right when I sold my HD100 and 3.3x13 lens. Yes, pangs of seller's remorse thanks to your great pictures and the "friends of the HD100" who provided the awesome scene files.

Well, hopefully my new XDCAM HD will alleviate those pangs a bit when it arrives and I can fire it up.

Thanks a bunch, that stuff looks great! What framerate was it shot in?

Looks nice, but I have never gotten why people feel the need to put music and fancy editing into simple camera tests. I'm a utilitarian kinda guy I guess. That, and I would have rather seen the different scene files as applied to the same shot back to back for better comparison.

Looks great, I like the "Day for night" scenes. The little city is nice too.

Thanks for looking, guys. I really appreciate the kind comments.

"...new XDCAM HD will alleviate those pangs a bit"

Tim, that's the camera that I was going to use for the film but the local rental company has that booked for a while - the FPW series is in a whole different league. I'm very jealous :-)

"What framerate was it shot in?"

Burk, that was shot in 24p 720p.

"...feel the need to put music and fancy editing ..."

Stephan - I hate to admit this but for me, it's because I always feel my work is inadequate and not good enough. Adding music, a little editing and others make up for the shaky footage, blown shots, etc. The same way goes even when just doing tests. We'll be doing rehearsals this weekend and I'll set up a more scientific approach to testing the different scene files with real actors this time. Stay tuned :-)

Jordi and Jack - Thanks.

Nice footage and a good idea to put the scenes next to each other. Have you tried TC 3, I think it will be a bit better. Also, my name is spelled Paolo, not a biggie :)

Dave, thanks. I saw your post earlier about 25p having different results. I'll have to try during rehearsals this weekend.

Andy, mellow yellow is a variation of Tim Dashwood's Amelie setting. I turned up the detail a little bit, turned cinegamma on and shot it at 9DB at daylight to add a little noise and a few minor color tweaks (an .03 ND filter in the mattebox). But I'll get the settings to you later tonight.

Paolo, I sincerely apologize about the spelling. I should know how to spell your name as I'm a big fan of 2nd unit. This weekend, I'll have even more fun playing with the different settings while filming real actors. TC3 instead of TC2, huh? Let me ask you this - how were you able to improve on perfection? (Sorry I'm a natural politician)!!! :-)

Very gorgeous, film-like shots, especially Tim's color reversal. How was that moon shot done?

Hey George, no biggie, glad that you like 2nd Unit, we have a great episode coming for the season finale, hopefully released this friday. TC is no perfect, just trying my best, glad that you liked it. The footage looks great and I like the atmosphere given by the music. What is the video about?

Thanks, Stephen. Here's the log line of episode 1 which is entitled "Stained":

A beautiful but delusional 19 year old American girl with a very tragic past must face the root cause of her family's death to satisfy the demands of her loving but overzealous French psychiatrist.
