    Part of the reason I loved it was the almost complete absence of the usual predictable staples of Vimeo uploads in this era - lens flare, shallow focus, log grade...
    This had plenty of deep focus, great compositions, and a lovely grade.

      very nice! The last shot didnt bother me at all. If Andrew didn't point it out I would not have noticed anything.

        The light in this was beautiful. There are so many incredible DPs out there, it really is a golden age for cinematography.

            Any idea what they are talking about with "CLC mapping" when discussing the grading process they used?

            From the comments on vimeo:
            "Thank you Kassim!
            For this project we used a kodak2383 LUT, with CLC mapping - it adds rich color and contrast to the image, while still looking natural. We also added a bit of 35mm kodak vision 500T grain, to add a little life, but unfortunately the compression eats fine grain."

              Looks great. Watched it on a 27" LPS monitor in full screen. Sat back about 6' and enjoyed.

                CLC Mapping = Constant Luminance Clipping:

                A color outside the destination gamut will be clipped to the nearest color on the target gamut “shell” with identical luminance. This is the default clipping method used for display LUTs.

                In the Kodak LUTs shared from Reduser by Bjorn/Juan, they're the ones labelled "ConstLclip".

                    Yeah, I'm being too picky. Watched it again and the last shot is fine.

                    So many great shots, hard to pick favorites. All of the detail shots are great. Walking toward camera at :11, Cat jumping through window at :25, rear view mirror at :40, looking out the window at :45, and the CU at :53 are my top picks, or really just the whole piece.

                    The music/soundscape was thoughtfully done and really adds to the imagery.

                      I almost typed a curse word, but it is PLENTY for most projects if you expose properly.
                      In your experience, would you say it is better to overexpose or underexpose when shooting ProRes?
                      I discovered that you can overexposure slightly and bring it down in post without losing highlights.
                      When "normally" exposing or underexposing the grain can crop up.

                        Very lovely. Footage is beautiful. Would like to see the same thing with less washed out blacks.

                          Great example on how to choose locations, weather conditions and even the wardrobe properly.

                          You need a talent for that. Grading can't solve everything in post, you can see that when people are playing with some early camera footage released for the masses. You won't get a "Hollywood-look" from any source. Learn about color-themes first, and get the right mood.

                            Must be an embedded Vimeo video because it doesn't show up on my iPhone and iPad. I'm on set and I won't be able to get to a computer with wifi until later tonight. Is there any chance Frank or someone can post a link? I'd love to see what you guys are talking about.

                            Edit: sorry I see it was already posted farther down the thread.

                              Wow! Very nice! Can't wait to watch this on something other that an iPad. I might need to check out that LUT.
