Here is some Raw footage quickly cut together. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. The concept is a behind the scenes look at this doctor having a commercial done so we intentionally have lights and such in the shot. Give the link a minute or two to load.



Kodak 7218
Aaton LTR 7
Zeiss 10 - 100

I look forward to hearing what you guys think.

Matt: Haven't you heard? You shouldn't be shooting 16mm any more because digital has made the format "obsolete". What were you thinking??? ;-)

Seriously though, nice looking footage. Looks like plenty of useable stuff in there. How are you going to lay out the final commercial? Also, how did you light the "behind the scenes" footage?

Nice work Matt. I especially like the long shots of the circular track (nice smoke element) and the other one with the grip & gaffer setting up.

The shots where the Dr. is staring at the camera as it dollies around her is kinda creepy, but in a funny way, ha ha

good job!

Wow, what smooth smooth shots. Ya her looking is creepy but thats only when you look at it so long, I highly doubt your cuts in the edit would be that long. Great beautiful shots though.

Thanks for the comments guys. LOL at 16mm being obsolete.

I shot with an 85 on for almost all the shots.

I used a variety or ARRI Fresnels (650 & 300) some were geled a full CTB some were left uncorrected. I used Arri 2k as the key light from up on a loading ramp out to the camera's right and there is a kino flo 4x2' bank on the pole you see in the shot providing some fill.

Also you see an Arri 1k open face with a chimera on it but that wasn't really aimed at anything, just a prop.

If I had more time/money I probably would have floated a light baloon to bring the overall level up the room up to a T4 or so, as it was with the 85 and my 2k I was at an ambient level of around T2.8

Yeah I agree that when she is looking at the camera it is a little creepy looking, but I also think it looks quite cool so maybe that will be more reel stuff rather than in the commercial :P

Thanks again for the kind words, I am really happy with how the shoot turned out.

Matt,

Nice results. Do you work with that Zeiss 10-100 much? I'm considering one..
