Just wrapped last week, and had a great time. Shot Red, 4k 2:1, and cropped for 2.35, had Zeiss Super Speeds which really proved to be the perfect set for the shoot. Shot a decent amount of the film at f2, with more intense sections at f1.3 and the beach scenes which needed to feel more fresh in contrast to the 'stillness' of the rest of the film at a around a f4-5.6 split. Rated the red for 320.

The film is about a couple going through a still birth, and how grieving and loss can turn into bitterness, something we think everyone will be able to relate to somehow. I was fortunate enough to be working with a director who really got the script, and allowed me to feel through the visuals with as much freedom as I needed.

Shoot went 4 days, fairly packed but went smoothly none the less. We had a cat scheduled in the first day and so we were defiantly apprehensive at first, working with animals and scheduling that in with a company move, but thank the Lord it went really well and I have a new faith in cat wranglers, they do an incredible job getting you what you need.

As far as lamps and setups, we had a 2.5k HMI Par most of the interiors, with a 1.2k HMI next to, and if we needed more inside we had a 400 Joker bug HMI which I loved. For the bathroom, we, thanks to the incredible job set design did, had a beautiful set bathroom built with 3 wild walls. We rigged a 12x griff with gold and silver above the set, with silver bounce on the sides. Shot our 2.5k up and it produced a great soft light. And finally for the beach setup, we had a 20x hi-lite which was a great soft while not being too soft either.

I felt blessed to have such a great crew, my gaffer Daniel Mcnutt really executed the lighting so well, my 1st Chris Daniel pulled so solid and my op Joey Kennedy was so smooth, not to mention that my dolly grip featherd the slow moves so dang well (there were alot of them).

I'm posting up some frames that I did a quick grade in Red Cine, and I would really love to hear what you all think.

Thanks so much.
