This is a project that I worked on for school over the past 7 weeks. Specifically for a cinematography class.

Please let me know what you think. Comments are much appreciated.

Hmm, I thought that looked like either one of the JVC GY-HD series or a varicam - which is good. Fractionally overexposed faces on a couple of occasions but generally very nice.

Did you do much grading?

I really like the movements. You've got some great jib/dolly/truck shots that are well thought out. Any favorite rigs you used for this stuff?

This was shot on a JVC GY-100U 720p24.

All of the jib shots were done on a Genie jib. It was Egripment's smallest jib when it came out but not sure if they even make it anymore.
We also used a steady tracker 2 to get all of the shots where we are following her around. Flipped upside down for the low shot of her feet.

Everything is graded just a bit to crush the blacks a little bit and in some cases bring up the whites. But the footage coming straight out of the camera looks good, just not as contrasts as we would have liked.

There was also quite a bit of After Effects work done on about 13 of the shots to remove chromatic aberrations. The lens on the camera is probably its biggest downfall because anytime you have blown out areas, like windows, you get ugly magenta, blue, green, and yellow lines tracing everything. Since blown out windows were one of our motifs there was quite a bit of post work to be done.
