    G'day all,

    I thought to share some screen grabs from a recent project ~ music video for a music group in Germany. The music has the summer vibe and the video that I directed and filmed with the intention of something innocent, magical, romantic and a little dreamy. Therefore, my choices – although not a simple set up to use – were the Jupiter-9 85mm f/2 as the taking lens (m39 mount converted to m42, then to EF – not really recommended double converting ~ as I couldn't focus to infinity although shooting stopped down kind of helped mitigate this issue in the dodgy way); then the Sankor 16C with a frankenclamp to hold it together over a few step-up rings; then connected to the Epic MX shooting with the 5K 2x Anamorphic desqueeze mode, which was really fun to do. I shot everything in 48fps on a 24fps timeline.

    Enough gibberish, here are some screen-grabs:
















    - you can see that the anamorphic lens went a bit wonky here ;)







    Cheers! And happy start to the warm season in the North-Hemis !

    Holy aspect ratio, Batman!

    BTW, regarding the Epic, what's your opinion of HDRx?
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    Regarding HDRx ... I've used it a whole 3 times and haven't been so impressed by it. Maybe I'm not applying it right, but in motion it's unusable. I find if there is some epic static shots that need a lot, then I could see the HDRx being useful... but I haven't used it much tbh.

    Thanks, Dominik, I appreciate it! :)

    Hahah that Norwegian music scene stereotype is so true, tho. I have a friend who just finished up as a DP on a deathmetal video; description: loads of animal parts and some crazy naked girl with a skull on her hear, etc. Here, I have to quote my mate here after he finished the production: "I've seen some interesting things in my life, but this was definitely warped."
