This video was shot last fall against greenscreen on a Varicam, 24p. It was just finished due to the extensive amount of effects work.

It's "Project 1"

Eric, good stuff. Were the flares completely computer generated? The windows with light shafts pouring through? I would love a quick rundown.

All of the light shafts were CG, as well as the building, floor, and mirror. They gave me a rough rendering of what the background would look like before the shoot so I could figure out a lighting design. The lighting ended up being a Maxi Brute through a 12x bleached muslin about 15 feet away from the band. That was filled in by a 4x4 kino through a frame of 216 next to camera. I also used a 5k with a medium chimera a couple of times for backlight. The greenscreen was lit by 8 suspended 4x4 kinos on half power. I think I ended up with a shooting stop of a 3.5.

Hi Eric.

It looks great, it reminds me of another clip that was posted by one of the forum members - Eki Hallka - in a forum titled "Z1 V Varicam". http://www.poetsofthefall.com/ (Lift video).

What was FX post work done on? Other than the band and their eqiupment, what else in the frame is real?

Only the band and their equipment was real. All Comping was done in After Effects. 3D was done in Lightwave and Cinema 4D.
