In a few weeks I’ll be shooting a skate video that’s taking place in the street of Paris at night. We can have access to “better” gear than what I’m currently used to as the project is backed by a production company; which is why I would love some advice.
It’s going to be a one night run and gun type shoot, we’ll be using a gimbal for most of it. We’ll have to rely on the available streetlight (paris christmas lights).
We’ll be using anamorphic lenses to really get the most out of those Christmas street lights.
So with all these parameters I need come up with a relatively “light weight” setup that can still perform well in low light.
So far I’m thinking of a combo : ARRI MINI / LOMO ANAMORPHIC / MOVI M10 ( + wireless follow focus ).
Anyone out there that has shot on a similar “run and gun” setup who would be happy to share their knowledge ? Considering that this would be my first time with an Arri camera is there anything that I should look out for ? And finally would you guys recommend any other camera / setup ? ( as a B-choice )
In the meantime I’m doing research online but nothing beats real experience !
Thanks in advance,
