I am totally impressed by the quality of the lighting and your image. Give us the low down on your technique!

Hi Keith,

We used the xl1s with the 35mm adapter--with 7 Zeiss prime lenses. The entire short was shot in a studio--I built the set myself--and we had Northern Lighting and Power out of Chicago, to do the lighting. I wish I could give you the details on the lights we used--my DP took care of all that! We used "bouncers" and sheets of paper, all sorts of strange things :) It was my first project--sorry I can't be more desctriptive!

Which adaptor? Do you mean the Mini?

Good f'n set, man. Totally made it. The lighting through the window - very nice.

Yeah, that looked very good. The DOF was nuts, heh.

Whats the entire short going to be about though? Is it all just them 2 in the room or something?

Yup, it's a 20 minute short--just the two of them in the room. Here's the screenplay, if you're interested in hearing what goes on--

Tell your DP he did a very nice job on lighting and shooting it.

Are we talking about the mini35 adapter here? The one with
the spinning ground-glass?

Sorry to get off topic here...but this is really getting irritating. Lately, I'm not able to see the video on any WMV files. I can only hear the audio. Anyone have any suggestions about what's up?

Sounds like this isn't a must-see...I don't want to miss it.

(How I wish this were a Mac/Quicktime world)

I'm not sure if it's the "spinning ground-glass" one--it's the adapter from P&S Technic

Playing WMV files on a Mac

...Seems to only be possible on OS 9.x with the Windows Media Player. Microsoft has choosen to not support OSX so far.

(And John I agree that QuickTime is a better format - files are smaller and cleaner, even on a PC.)

Guess I'll miss this clip just like I've missed "Sex and Lucia". :-(

funny you mention "Sex and Lucia"--that's the "look" we were going for.

The quicktime clips, IMHO, aren't even in the same league as windows media series 9 clips. They just don't compete--for quality, or size. I have both available to me--and the only reason I would make a quicktime file now, is for someone that can't view windows media files. I'll see if I can come up with something--

I am impressed with the quality of the clip. What WM settings did you use for the output and what NLE did you use My player was set to 200% and it looked great.
