  • Cinematic ord not cinematic?

    Hi there,

    I was posting some landscape photos of my upcoming project a few months ago (short feature film - about 30minutes long).
    I already shot some scenes and I'm trying to achieve a cinematic type of image quality.

    As I am not a colorist I would like to hear some feedback.
    The stills are from a childhood-flashback: It should be "warm" and a bit "dreamy".

    Shot with BMCC 2,5 MFT and speedbooster.
    Love to hear from you.

    For me it looks very cinematic and I like the color too. How did you process the footage (if you don't mind sharing)?

    I love the contrast and the black looks really nice on the women and kid's coat.

    The skin tone was not too much and I believe you isolate this while pushing the other colors to pop-out of the screen right?

    Thanks for sharing.

      Looks totally cinematic. What lens?

      Not sure about, "warm and a bit dreamy." Maybe more sun / yellow and glare?

              Thanks for your response! Actually I didn't do a lot.. I used the Sigma 18-35 1.8 for the "wider shots" and the vintage Nikon 50mm 1.8 Ais for the close ups (both with speed booster).. I like both glass a lot.. In Davinci I tweaked exposure, saturation, contrast and color temperature settings. No skin isolation at all..
              First tried Hook LUT and then went for a Kodak LUT. All available light.. But I tried to be aware of light direction in "staging" the actors.. Did it around evening time - helped a lot..
              Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that the BMCC with the right glass looks very filmic without a lot of tweaking.. During the last year experimenting with BMCC footage I found out that if you leave some room for the highlights it looks way better than going to full 100 on waveform monitor..
              Also I see a lot of BMCC footage which looks a tad overexposed to me.. making it a bit "darker" (without crushing blacks) sometimes seems a bit more pleasing to the eye..

              But thank you so much for your opinions.. I always like to hear some feedback because after a while I loose objectivity..
              Sorry I'm german and don't always know the correct terms.. It would be a short film then .. but we'll see .. maybe it gets longer than 30minutes

                          Sorry, I didn't read your post properly.. The exact Kodak LUT was the 2383CUSPclip.. hope that helps.. Actually I'd also like to try Frank Glencairn's Kodachrome another time..
