Rather, before I get in too deep, I'm looking for some feedback.
I've been contacted about a film that will shoot in a few months and the prospect of shooting RED. Here's the scenario:
It's almost wholly a night shoot with limited lighting. I think there's enough light to make it work, but I've not done a night shoot in a while, and I've not shot with RED yet (though I've been dying to).
I would like some thoughts on shooting 2k at night with RED, perhaps setting suggestions? We would be going 2k b/c more than anything we can't handle the 4k data in post right now (we're okay with that).
Going into post is making me nervous. As much as I want to tackle this, the budget isn't there for a great DI and finish. Are there coloring solutions for a low budget indie wanting to get it's feet wet with RED? I assume Apple's COLOR is a joke, in this regard? Perhaps not? Will 2k handle okay at night from RED? I don't want to crank the ASA too much.
Keep in mind first and foremost this is an adventure in tech, too, for some. All anxious to go for it and learn from it, but I don't want them to be under prepared.
All thoughts welcome. I'm looking for, perhaps, a simple solution in a complex situation without sacrificing good for fast and cheap. I can sacrifice fast... help me understand how I might?
