In my country we use European standards for TV production (PAL) however, power is running on 220V / 60Hz.
In order to minimize flickering effects, I shoot most of my productions NTSC. (I shoot usually 30p or 60p)
We recently produced a short film and got the chance to screen it on a big screen at a local cinema. To my great disappointment I had to watch the film with very noticeable stutter. I guess the projector was running 25p but my film was 30p and therefore images got dropped creating the jerking effect.
So this is a big problem and I need to find a solution. I tried on a Canon 5D III to swap over to PAL (25p) and used a shutter speed of 1/60 but there was still very strong noticeable flicker.
What would you folks do in such a case? I have been told newer cameras have an anti flicker option but I just don't like using such electronic filters during principal photography.
Let me know what you think,
