Wasn't that footage shot on a fast trak? As I would imagine new camera for the DP.....MEANS.....oh yeah this isn't my Panavision 35 that I've worked with for how many years? I'm kinda slow, but I gotta play with my NEW cameras for sometimes weeks before I have usable footage in some cases to seek out what i think are usable settings under the shooting circumstances. I know that's not the case with some professionals out there, but it is mine.
Yes, I was at CalArts from 1988-1991 and took classes from Sandy Mackendrick and Bill Jackson (his 3-camera live TV class.)
Record a Gansgta-Rap Polka Country music video.
There is nothing wrong being an artist, add grain, put Vasoline on the lense, shake the camera, under light, over light, (hey have your actors mumble and underexpose like the Godfather and win an Oscar.) I'm just saying there is a high end, commercial look, or Paramount look that most would say was and is beautiful and there is the opposite of a dirty, dark, grainy, shaky, raw, look. Like music, it can be overproduced or produced badly - its subjective which you like and which fits the story or song best. But when you sing out of tune on purpose, don't expect me to like it for your homage to American idol. ;-)
- Use a poor quality prime or zoom !.
- To forget that the camera is a tool and that´s the indian the one that matters. Not the arrow.
