music video called "Ni Ten Ichi Ryu" by electronic music producer Photek. Can't make out if it was done initially in B&W or a post effect. i know it's a dojo and it's supposed be dark and all, but I think lighting could've been better, especially on the main character's face at least! Doesn't seem like any effects were applied in post, like a dry cut.

Well anyways, I'm thinking with a good B&W stock and a Canon 1014 would be even better. only in the exterior shots where they're fighting makes me believe that it doesn't have a crystal motor. What do you guys recon?

Nothing there to really evidence that it's S8, if anything, I think it was shot HD. It's evident in the skin textures and action scenes that it was probably shot digitally.

Then again, it's a very compressed YouTube video...so the jury is still out.

That video came out in 1998! The single came out in '97.

well, there's a scene in that video where a candle gets cut in slow motion, and that smoothness usually comes from film cameras. i'm thinking s16 then! and I say that because you mention HD. I'd really like to know because I'd want to tackle a project like that but on S8 with a really good transfer to a non-compressed drive

here are some stills
