I just discovered some videos on youtube that are absolutly breath taking
And by far some of the best shot I have seen in a while.

I was wondering if someone know where thoses video come from? and from which Cinematographer?
Is there a "making of" that we can see? What camera did they use? Phantom Camera for slow motion?
How do you think they achieve this? How did they get this lightning?

(Look at 1:54min for one of the best shot)
(Look at 3:33min for the best shoot)

Any detail will be appreciate!
Thank you!

One aspect of the loss of CRT technology that I cannot stand is the flat screens are amped up with more contrast, but that is just masking the loss of tonality. The first video has crushed black levels and I can tell it could look spectacular if the contrast were properly set, but on CRT, it just looks like another crushed black level video.

I love CRT, I love the depth, I think flat screen does not show off the depth, it replaces the loss of CRT depth with more contrast, kind of like adding sugar to a sugary drink.

Looks like some heavily stylized beauty photography, intercut with some great Natural History footage. It's mostly available light, they've just been very careful to shoot during magic hour or close to it. There has also been a fairly aggressive grade applied to it all, lots of crushed blacks, vignettes and grads for the skies. It's also very well art directed, and costume has been chosen to complement the natural colors of the surroundings. I don't think there is anything inherently difficult here, just expensive and time-consuming.

Pretty much nail on the head.





Just good use of contrasting/ complementary colours for the subjects and their surroundings. Plus heavy grade.

You need to use your full real name, it's one of the forum rules.
