Student filmmaker here. Very excited to be joining this great forum after lurking around for a while!
I filmed a feature in high school on digital, but will be shooting my next short biopic on film. We're using an Arriflex 35-3 with a 25mm Cooke Speed Panchro (series 3). I just have a few questions regarding this configuration:
1). The Cooke 25mm is a beautiful but dainty piece of glass, especially when mounted on the Arri - can anyone provide some input or advice in regards to pulling focus with this setup?
2). On the subject of the lens, which matte box or hood would be the best to use? Additionally, how will the matte box affect focus pulling in front of such a small lens?
Thanks in advance for your time!
