Gabriel trailer

Just spreading the words guys.... The guy who directed this film is an Asussie named Shane Abbess. He shot it with 2 JVC's GY-HD101E…. the movie has been picked up by Sony for theatrical distribution…. Goggle his name for more info.

Just wanted to share with you guys. This gives the JVC hdv cam some serious bragging rights…. Below is a link to download the trailer, and the official site.

Did they use a 35mm adapter, and if so, which one?

Hi Brian,

I met Shane Abbess and his DOP at Australia's equivalent of NAB a few weeks back. They were screening the trailer for Gabriel (on a fairly small screen) and it looked fantastic. I had a chat with them afterwards and they told me the whole film was shot on stock GY-101E cameras with the standard 16x Fujinon lens at 25FPS, then laser printed to 35mm film at 24FPS with the 4% speed reduction that process produces.

Cheers
Glenn

Gabriel

I wrote to Peter Holland who was thw DOP of Gabriel and he was amazingly nice and quite willing to give information regarding the shoot. If anyone has more questions I will pass them on to him.



"i'll answer all your questions, but i've pasted my setup specs. remembering that the whole film was set at night so i never tested for daylight/high key scenarios. please feel free to check these out.

back focus was somthing to be vigilant about. we would check it 4 or 5 times a day, especially if you had just shot with the macro end of the lens and anytime the camera crew had 5 minutes. i found the best method would be to open up aperture as much as possible (i use ND filters in mattbox, i don't trust the in camera ones, you can't check them for dirt, grease and i've seen them affect focus) look for a bright pinpoint a the horizon, move back ring till sharp. now zoom all the way back and check sharps with back ring again, repeat till you are satisfied that both ends of lens are sharp.

good luck

anything else please feel free to contact me.

The quality of the Anamorphic transfer?

the transfer was amazing but i think it was partly due to warren lynch at intercolour in sydney. he did something magical. he converted all files to log space which made a big difference. you might try contacting him.

The problems encountered during the production?

see previous back focus."

Very nice, glad to see something that looks that good and that has been shot with the stock HD100.

Also glad that the backfocus issue has been brought up. I recently covered that in a video tutorial for "2nd Unit" which was, in fact, shot and demoed with the HD100: http://www.paolociccone.com

Excellent work. It goes to show what can be done in the right hands.

I'd be interested in hearing more on this.

Just saw the Gabriel trailer on the big screen here in Australia. It was at the front of the New Zealand horror/comedy "Black Sheep".

The trailer looks awesome, the lighting looks fantastic. The only slight criticism would be that the image overall looked a little soft. It was hard to make a definitive judgement on this, though, as the trailer is cut so fast it's hard to analyze a shot for a decent length of time.

But, man, I'm really excited to check this one out.

Cheers.

Allthough it looks very impressive the problem with trailers is that they cut so fast, using dissolves in such a way that you hardly can see what is going on.
