Italian Cinelook

Hi everybody!

Finally I can post my first test about Canon XL2 Cinelook...

It's a kind of tribute to David Lynch...

I shooted in countryside a very bad and cloudly day, with 20x lens, manual focus, flat cine settings, PAL 25p, widescreen. Then I edited it in Premiere Pro 1.5 using Magic Bullet Editors to correct the color. No any kind of grain settings.

Here many Americans can read my post: I love the look and the feeling of US movies; I'm not speaking about themes and stories, but only about Photography and color correction. I think US movies have a fantastic image impact. In Italy there are several beautifull movies, wonderfull stories (life isi beautifull...) but our images are poor, flat.
I'm saying that, to introduce my test: I tried to simulate as I can as it's possible these american images.

I'd like to read your impression, critic and feelings.

Thanks everybody.

Michele Lombardo

I don't know if it looks like american images (I'm romanian), but I loved the look you've got! :) Was that 20X the original lens you've got with the camcorder?

Very nice! I havent seen that much of what the XL2 is capable of and you appear to have it figured out; very nice results. Interesting choice of score as I think it worked wonderfully and nice coloring.

Great job and super nice imagery!

Good looking footage!

You use music from Twin Peaks, but apart from the focussing within shots it's not enough David Lynch for me. Lynch has a more stable, stylistic film style. Yesterday evening I watched Mulholland Drive again on the big screen at our local artcinema house., so I'm still in the mood ;-)

Nice DOF

Michele

I was impressed by the DOF you achieved in that clip, how was that done? Just zooming in from a distance?
