Yes, it's been a great experience operating for him on this movie.

Just so I don't feel like I've hijacked this thread, maybe I'll tell him about the 7D tomorrow...!

Yeah, sure, but.. if a really, really heavy fog should start rolling toward the set - JUST LEAVE, ok?

I expect to see some good additions to that 'horror movie techniques' thread soon after you finish.

High jack away! It would be interesting to get JC's take not only on video cameras in general, but the HD DSLR revolution (I suppose that's the right word) that is happening.

Can you say what the movie title is? What its about? I'll be looking for it now!

Charles Papert September 11th, 2009 08:15 AM

It's called "The Ward". Psychological thriller. Should be out in a year or so. Check IMDB for details.

John has never worked in HD--in fact this is his first non-Panavision anamorphic feature (we are shooting Super35, with Moviecams).

John Vincent September 11th, 2009 01:40 PM

Sweet! Def gonna check it out...


Paul Frederick September 12th, 2009 08:15 AM

Thanks Charles, yeah, I'll definitely check it out too!

Don Miller September 12th, 2009 08:23 AM

Also be sure to check out Charles's cameo appearance in the TV Show scrubs. The man could have made a fortune in silent movies. :)

LOL... For that show and that particular scene his over the top acting worked perfectly. I was kind of hoping to see an all out fight where they ended up beating the pulp out of one another..lol.

OK, this poor thread has been officially hijacked by all things Papert...!

Ian, the fight portion of that scene did escalate into an all-out brawl which culminated in my much larger opponent throwing me to the floor, much to the crew's appreciation. And for the record, the director told me to "go big"...

Nearly wrapped on the Carpenter film, our principal photography is done in Spokane and we have one short day left in Seattle. I did in fact mention the 5D and 7D to John, he just shook his head--this digital acquisition thing is completely alien to him!

Here's a still from our interior set of the two of us--it really is an honor to work with a director who was one the pioneers of developing the Steadicam vocabulary.

Awesome! That's certainly one to be proud of, Chas... or should I say *another* one
to be proud of, since you've amassed quite a portfolio over the years. Well done!
