Here is a link to a WWII short I was fortunate enough to DP in Nov. 2017. 
Based on the true story of WWII veteran George Price.
Written & Directed by Skyler Lawson

Shot on Kodak 7219 with my Aaton XTR Prod.

There are not enough words to express my gratitude toward the crew and cast.

 

Hope you enjoy.

Hello Aaron, really like the looks of the film. I can't tell if some of the grain was add in post, but I really like the looks you get, specially in the night scenes. The sound wasn't perfect but totally works, except for little moments.

 

Great work, congrats to you and the rest of the crew!

Thanks for the kind words.
None of the grain was added in post. Its all the natural grain from the 7219 rated at 320 and whatever came out of the telecine Kodak did. Im sure the Vimeo compression doesnt help it but its all real. The night scenes were tricky to be sure.

Thanks Ken! Yes, especially when all you have available to light with is a 1200w HMI par. Luckily all the night work was closeups!
