Re: Kestrel project

Excellent! The nest shots were wonderful and the landscapes were simply perfect. A great short film to watch on a Monday morning :)

Re: Kestrel project

Thanks for all the positive responses. Yes, it is aimed for broadcast. The project is in proces and will be completed in 2013. I will keep you informed.

Markus: most of it is shot with EX3/nanoflash, two slomo shots in the trailer with FS700.

Re: Kestrel project

Hi Cees,

Fantastic work and I liked the details such as the young kestrel investigating the slug. However I am not so sure about some of the slider shots of the surroundings, I think I would have preferred that the camera was stationary. What do others think?

Re: Kestrel project

Hi Cees,
This is lovely. I like it a lot. I was wondering how you did the slow motion shots and then saw that you have used FS700. Keep us posted about the developments. All the best.
Cheers,
Sabyasachi

Re: Kestrel project

Cees, They're a beatiful bird, I love watching them here in OZ.

That looks like a couple of years, if not more, of long, long hours.

Very well done.

Bryce,

Besides the standard lens I use Nikon still lenses. Mainly 80-200 F/2.8 and 300 F/4. Recently bought a 200-400 F/4, but no shots of that in the trailer. On the FS700 I also use 17-55 F/2.8 and Tokina 11-16 F/2.8.

Re: Kestrel project

Thanks Cees,
I am just starting out with an EX3 & some Nikon glass, so i'm trying to find out all i can about what lenses work best. Your promo of the Kestral film is absolutely stunning so it's good to know the sort of quality i should be aiming for!!
