New Feature with HD100/200 and Mini 35

Okay, so I am in post with my first feature. We shot with the HD100 and 200 using Tim's Bleech Bypass and the P&S Mini35 adapter. Still have about 7 days to go of actual shooting so its not quite done yet.

It turned out to be a lot more days and work than I expected, but hey, that's Show Business for ya'll. Obviously I am not at liberty to show the whole film online, but I did cut a rough scene for you who are interested and I will update as we complete the project with other clips, and a trailer soon.

Note that it is temporary sound and it has not been color corrected yet.

Check it out here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fezWp_J8i34

(yes, its youtube, but I can't have high quality clips floating around online at this point.) Hope you understand. Its still good compression and quailty for youtube, that is.

Enoy, and feel free to comment or ask questions.

Duke

Great piece...The conversation flows naturally.

Since you use, HD100 & HD200, my question for the workflow would be, did you capture it with the tape or with the Firestore or any other direct to disk method? What about the online for the post? I saw several camera work movement, I want to know also did you find any artifacts when the camera capture your shot.

We use boom and wireless TR50 mics for each actor. I generally end up just using the sound from the wireless. Just my preferred sound. It sounds more crisp and "movie like" to me. One thing I believe sets a cheap indie and/or student film apart from a so called Hollywood film is the sound, so I make a concerted effrot to get good sound, even if I have to do ADR.

We captured onto the Firestore and lucky enough we had a onsite assistant editor that would then log the media every other hour.

I am not much of a tech person, nor do I really spend so much time in the area as I probably should, but the answer is I didn't see anything that stood out. I concentrate on story, performance, and the overall look of the film. I.e. composition of the camera and light. Pixels, resolution, artifacts, compression, and so on isn't my area of expertise. Personally I think there is too much time spend on that and less time spend on casting good actors, writing a good story etc. But that is just me. I know it obviously has a place, but I leave it up to the DP and color corrector to deal with those issues. I can't wrap my head around a lot of that stuff. Probably due to my severe case of ADD. =)

Thanks for all the comments.

Brian, I think it's awesome. I liked the story, editing, camera movement. How did you get this great quality in youtube? What file/settings did you use to upload? It looks really good even highly compressed. I've been following your films and you are very talented.

HEy David,

Thanks for the kind comments and viewing. I just use Quicktime export conversion via FCP6 and upload. Just a smaller size. I think Youtube just seems to be compressing it nicely so it keeps a pretty decent quality for viewing.

I thought it looked very very good, the pacing of the scene seemed excellent, the dialogue natural- way better than most indie films, or for that matter even most studio films.

Fantastic job-How was your experience with the 200 as compared to the 100? Pros/Cons? Really nice work.

Thanks for the comments.

I really didn't see the difference between the two, except that the 200 has 60P for slowmo and better connections. I would get the 200 over the 100 at this point. No need to go backwards. Plus the 200 has 2:35.1 frame maker for the display for those of us who are addicted to true wide screen cinema =)

No cons as I saw it.
