••◊ A Few Pictures from Coder God

Here's a few screen grabs from a short I shot last weekend called "Coder God." It should be a fun little film and good festival fodder.  Note that these pictures are not color graded yet, which is both interesting and scary.  When you hand over your photography for someone else to "correct it" there's an awful lot of trust involved.  It seems like Scott should at least have a solid base to work from.


...plus a few more behind the scenes pictures.  The double 1k book light into an 8x8 muslin sheet worked really well to give our actress a nice soft glow.  We also used a prototype of the Strahlen LED light for her hair light.  Fill was provided by a 250W Chinese lantern just over the camera. 

A lot of the gear was provided by Video Gear, so big thanks to them. The Atomos Samurai Blade made all the difference.  This IPS panel on this recorder is now color accurate and you can trust it for exposure.  That made all the difference on this shoot.  Plus with the Prores 4:2:2 codec, the FS-700 really shined.  It's a night and day difference between the in camera AVCHD crap codec and the Samurai.  I just wish we would have had a way to capture the overcranked sequence into the Samurai.  I guess Sony has to sell F5's somehow!
