New F3 TV Spots

Here are a couple of new spots I shot using the F3 with the PIX240.

Re: New F3 TV Spots

I can't see the video on my iPad, but was able to go to your Vimeo page and saw it. Very good lighting and execution.
I saw a slight slowmo. Did you shoot 1080 or 720 for the slowmo?

Re: New F3 TV Spots

Why 720/30 when you can do 1080/30 ?

The interviews were shot at 1080 30p. You can't shoot at 1080 30p and also over crank the camera to 60p. You have to be in 720 to do so. So the B-Roll was shot at 720 30/60.

Hey Gregory,
All of these spots look really amazing... excellent lighting and composition. Would you mind sharing what your camera settings are? Any color correcting done to these? Did you use S-Log or other preset? Is that tungsten lighting you used? Thanks

Re: New F3 TV Spots

Excellent work Gregory,
Is that typical for a commercial to be 1 minute long?

Re: New F3 TV Spots

Good question. Actually the spots were originally to be 30's. The storyboards were for 30's, and we shot the spots with 30's in mind. However when the client saw the first edits they suddenly decided that they wanted them to be 60's.

Luckily we shot just barely enough b-roll to make them into 60's. I would have preferred less on camera talking head time, but we would have needed to shoot more b-roll to fix that, which we did not as we had shot with 30's in mind.

I shot using S-Log. Color correction was done using DaVinci. Recorded 10bit to the PIX240. Lighting varied from spot to spot.

I should have said I used Davinci for color grading not correction. Zeiss lens were also used.
