  • 1080p prores footage - adventure short film

    Hi black magic user!
    I believe this is a great place to share experiences with the bmcc to those who would want to know!

    I shot this short film with my brother back in september: https://vimeo.com/84128558

    --

    Generally we we're really happy with the camera.
    But it has a hard time in low light situations -
    We shot 90% of the film with a 24mm lens, and only went above that in a shot that required a zoom.
    Generally I liked the look of the lens (samyang 24mm) but when compared to other movies, I miss the depth of shooting with a longer lens!
    So a bigger sensor, and better light sensibility would be great!

    We tried out recording audio, connecting a mic directly to the camera. But we didn't have any success with that, so we chose to record the audio separately to get less noise. Have any of you had success with this? There was a lot of white noise when we tried.

    --

    Personally I could shoot a short film on this camera again, but the thing I miss the most is a bigger sensor, so I could use the same shooting style with longer lenses and get the extra feeling of depth. Do you know if there is any examples of short films or cinematic videos from the 4k camera, shot with 50mm or more? I would love to see that.


    Would love to get some feedback from you on the short film! Thanks for your time

              This looks great! I don't think you needed a larger sensor/shallower depth a field for this. I think you were able to tell your story just fine and the camera was actually the last thing I was focused on while watching.

              I was a bit confused by the woman's motives, but otherwise, I appreciate you sharing this because we don't see enough narrative films shot on the BMCC so this was refreshing. Thanks for sharing!

                ASKE, you need to be more sensitive to cutting on the "action". There tends to be long "takes" on all of the cuts. Almost there....

                        This is actually what I loved about it, helped to draw me in and fit the feeling of the film perfectly. Excellent pacing all around.

                        This is some impressive stuff. It's not easy to pull off such a convincing indoor night shot... that grade was absolutely spot on.

                          Which ND filters did you use? This is my main problem with the camera due to IR Pollution, thanks

                            BTW: What color temp did you shoot at outdoors / day shots?
