  • BMCC or Scarlet for our feature. Need some help

    hello community,

    We are in pre production for an upcoming feature and are trying to decide between the BMCC 2.5 or a Scarlet. The look we are going for is for like of a better term hyper real and glossy. Is there any examples of this kind of footage from the BMCC? most of the stuff I've seen has a old timey film look to it, which looks great just not what we are going for. Any footage or links to tips for lighting to achieve this would be a big help.

    EDIT: Most of this will be shot in studio, so examples from there would be nice too.

    Thanks guys

    the "hyper real" look is mostly from resolution and a RED is the best tool for that kind of direction.

      Can the BMCC be used to create this look with proper lighting or is that " look" in the color science of the camera.

        Can you post some examples that fall in that hyper real look category? Because when I think of that, the first thing that pops into my mind is stuff that is shot with a DSLR.

            stuff like this should be easily achievable with the BMCC.

            look at some of the stuff that roman or koli shot with the BMCC. I think that is going in a similar direction.

              Looks like you want a "digital" look, I wouldnt go with a BM camera.

                I think it might be worth looking at a C300 and some super sharp glass.

                  It's less a digital look and more of a look without that thin yellow brown haze we've been seeing on most BMCC footage. We're gonna do some camera test shortly thanks for the advice I'll keep the community updated.

                    A little bit of everything and I see the forum wreaked havoc on the sizes. Fun times. As for the first one that looks golden, she has a gold reflector on her. Look at all the other colors, they pop and are dead on.

                    It's all in what filters you use and color correction. Most people still don't use the right IR cut and just slap on Film Convert or something like it. Though FC can look good if you know how to use it, which I don't, hints why I don't use it

                        Yep mighty friendly of her indeed! She's actually some playboy model or something, of course tying to get into acting. I wish that shot uploaded better. I have no idea what happen to the res.

                          I think you can get pretty much any look you want from a the BMCC (or the scarlet for that matter) if lit and graded properly. I don't see hyper real being an issue at all. If you want to add hyper real glossy with a touch of video...get a sony

                              Darren, good find. Some strikingly beautiful set shots in there by Aleksandar. What a road trip!
