Phantom Music Videos
Posted 13 April 2008 - 04:17 PM
I had the honor and pleasure of meeting with Mr. Max Goldman who has lensed some of my favorite contemporary music videos. Directors like Marc Webb, LilX, Phillip Andelman, Anthony Mandler, and more.
Anyway, he mentioned that his go to HD camera when not shooting 35mm is the Phantom HD. 35mm lenses, etc. , relatively straight forward recording to cinemags. Not LOG color space but better than a F900.
One of his recent videos for Jay Z was shot with the Phantom. I'm sure there are others but I didn't get to ask him what others.

Looking for more. I have a friend who shot a commercial with one but I lost the link.

Camera looks nice. I'm working on a big job for a major cable company that I've choose hte Phantom for as I need to make a high rez video wall background for a program and need a high quality picture and Phantom is my first choice.

It does interface very well with the Iridas Speed Grade, which I'm a big fan of. Previewing rough color corects of the footage is always heplful for figuring out appropriate key/fill ratios. I'd be interested to have a colorist on set just like a VFX supervisor.

Anyone in Vegas this week should swing by the Abel booth (C8508) and check out the Phantom offerings. I'm not allowed to officially say what we have before the show starts, but it's really sweet.

I shot the Chevelle "Well Enough Alone" video over a year ago with the Phantom. This was before the mags were available. It is a great camera for 24 and 1000 fps @ 1080. We were fortunate to master the final video in HD.
Hi, I am just planing to shoot a music video. We are thinking of using the Phantom for the slow mo stuff and the Red for regular speeds. So far I've heard from many people that the Phantom is a great all round camera also when shooting 25fps. So my question would be if I should cancel the RED and just stick with the Phantom for the whole video?
Any thoughts on that are greatly appreciated.

The Phantom HD with at least one (better off with two) Cinemags is a great looking package. Also, the Phantom generates rather large amounts of data, so it is something to consider during your post, but is certainly something that is very manageable if planned for.

The camera has a viewfinder (Sony color viewfinder) as well as an HD-SDI out, so you can monitor with normal HD monitors.
The take you shot is available to be played back immediately after cutting. It will play on the viewfinder as well as the SDI out at any frame rate you want, though typically you play back at 24 fps (or 29.97 depending on your final time base). You can then decide if you want to keep or dump that take. If you keep it, you typically set in and out points for the clip and save to the computer (which can take quite some time), or if you are using a Cinemag, save to the mag in a few seconds (and then download the mag at a later time).
If you decide not to keep the clip, the shot is dumped instantly and the camera is ready to go again.

Here´s another video shot with the Phantom HD, Sahara Hotnights "In private"
Do you know the frame rate this was shot at or what lights were used 10ks ?
