    Old film stocks, printing systems, and early video were all so much more contrasty that I doubt there was as much call for negative fill, they were fighting for positive fill!

    You'd want the Aputure LS Mini20C, which is bi-color (3200K to 6500K) to get to tungsten... otherwise you'd have to gel a LS Mini20D to correct it from its 7500K daylight base.

    This show looks excellent! I love the wide dynamic range of the lighting, and the Monstro seems to be holding detail even in the brightest areas of the frame like white curtain sheers.

    Depends on how much you feel the look of the primes you like comes from shooting at wide apertures -- a T3.1 Cooke 20-100mm is a great lens with softer contrast than a modern zoom but won't get you...

    Thanks!

    There's nothing unusual or heavily-manipulated in terms of color-correction -- the look is mostly in design, costume, and lighting. Some light diffusion (mostly #1/4 Hollywood Black Magic...

    You can recreate this lighting effect with a single hard source way up high to camera left, maybe a 5K Skypan would do it, plus a very soft frontal fill. But the objects look so CGI-ish that perhaps...

    Your plan sounds good -- I think surrounding them with negative fill (and you'll need some overhead negative fill) will be enough, the background ambience will wrap around them. Yes, a bounce card to...

    Sorry, I haven't ever looked into buying a slider so can't advise on which one to get. I think you need a 36" slider though (and strong sticks), 20" is a pretty small push-in considering that the...

    In theory, a PL-mount extender would work on most PL-Mount lens, I don't think the brand matters. There are some focus issues with extenders and anamorphic zooms I believe.
