Hello everybody!

We've quickly edited our first reel to apply for a feature and we wanted to share it. Please feel free to tell us what you think.

Everything in this reel was shot on video with prosumer cameras (Canon XM2/XL2/H1, Sony FX1) and different 35mm adapters (mostly homemade) with Nikon lenses. We shot one project with the P+S MINI35 and Cooke S4 lenses.

It's all low to no-budget, we can't wait to be able to shoot on film. We got a fridge full of 16mm stock and a nice old camera waiting for some budget ;-) All we've done on film for now are stills and a couple of tests with a K3 but it's definitely the next step for us.

Here's the link: dp.theblacksheep.be


Take care,

Olivier&Olan

It's good! It's really long though, It takes a while before it gets started but you have some great stuff on that! That excalot shot with the girl is really beautiful, love the light, very hard. What was it by the way?

I love the break at 4:30, with the rooftop shot to the girl shot. Beautiful! Was the rooftop a sky replacement?

You shot Marla! For those that dont know Marla was shot using one of, if not THE, very first homemade mini35 devices. Read more about it here: http://www.marlathemovie.com/ . The method they used has now been superceded several times over but they opened the door for all homemade devices to come including the Redrock 35 device, and it stills tands as one of the better looking digital 35 shorts shot (imo).

Thanks very much to everybody!!

The escalator shot was shot using only the actual light which was a really small but quite strong halogen lamp just above her. Your reel is very impressive Christophe, great source of inspiration for us!

The sky was a a sky replacement. We shot the sky the same day a couple of hours before when it was more cloudy. The shot was speed ed up at 800% and some kind of mirror effect was added. Post was done in After Effects.

Yeah, we shot Marla :D It's a long time ago now... It really touches us to hear that people do remember it, thank you very very much! We must say we're thrilled to see how things have moved on since, there are 35mm adapters everywhere and many are really good. It's great so see that the tools are becoming more affordable. Yesterday you could only shoot bad DV with low to no-budget; now it's possible to shoot prosumer HD with a 35mm adapter for about the same budget, that's great news!

Thanks again!
