Benedict

Benedict is working in an egg factory, his job is to convert brown eggs into white eggs. One day he encounters something different that changes everything.

We filmed with a old Arri SR2, using Kodak Vision 3 500T film. The set was lighted up with two 2,5 Arri HMI, with 1/2 CTG and fluorescence tubes. All the fluorescence tubes were covered with 1/2 CTG and the all the windows with 1/2 CTG and 1/2 Frost, all this to create an even light to the set. In post we took the colors down to get a grey feeling.

I love how everything is either white or orange. Looks great!

Can't wait to see some vids.

Henri - I really like the look of this. The subtle green works nicely, and you pulled off a soft palette/low contrast scheme, something that is probably more difficult to achieve in the S16 format. Usually 16 requires a bit more punch but I like what you've done here. How did you get it transferred? SD/HD telecine? DI scan?

Thanks! The transfer was (for now) a SD telecine, money...as usual :)

For a few moving clips, not a teaser in that sense...

Sorry for the picture quality, for some reason the Compressor program refused to co-operate so I had to just export from FCS...
