Hi,

I'm about to direct my next short film here in Britain. We're shooting on Fuji Reala 500D with anamorphic lenses, starting in just under 3 weeks.

I've signed up specifically to find opinion on the following subject which has started to bug me.

I recently saw 'The Good Shepherd' in the local multiplex cinema here in the UK. Wow - fantastic cinematography, a beautiful film.
BUT ... I'm fairly convinced that most of the last 10 minutes (with the exception of the aeroplane sequence) was shot on HD (e.g. HD-CAM) with the same set of lenses as the previous 160 minutes which were of course shot on film. Now I might be wrong, and I cannot find reference to this on the web. Any thoughts from the forum?? Please reply if you KNOW! I'm fairly sure that the last 10 minutes of 'The Good Shepherd' were shot on high definition video.

In the American Cinematographer article on the film there is no reference to HD. What are are seeing is an overuse of noise-reduction.

Yes...

Read the existing thread on 'The Good Sheperd' and you'll learn more about how this look came to be.
