I’ll DP soon a new short film. Unluckly the Arri Mini I asked is already out on another production and we'll be shooting with the Epic Dragon and Cooke S4. Most of the film will be handheld and on movi.
I wanted to have some insights on a few doubts I have.
- apart from the red LCD, I asked a smallHD monitor + BNC cable for the 1st AC so he pulls the focus remote for the whole film. Is that a good way to go?
- now, for the director monitor, I’m thinking to use a Teradeck connection so I’ll have the director in a different room for there's no much space.
I have never used a teradeck. Can I use it on the Movi, connected to the Epic Dragon? what’s the signal that reaches the director monitor? full HD? (keeping in mind I’m shooting 4K RAW).
How’s the set up, do I plug via HDMI the Teradek to the Red? does my SDI output to the 1st AC monitor still work properly?
- one side question, I’m shooting in Europe (France). Does a 2.5K HMI already requires a generator?
thank you a lot for your inputs
