    I'm the cinematographer of a feature film called Killer Sofa.

    I used the Black Magic Production Camera 4K. 80% of the film was shot at night. I've had this camera for a few years and it still delivers.

    To watch the Killer Sofa Trailer (released by High Octane Pictures) just go here:

    Ask me anything! Here is the poster and some pics

    "Don't sit on the furniture." Love it. What my Aunt Bee used to tell me as a kid down in Rockaway. I like the stills.

    Umm, but, it's a chair, maybe a recliner. Was that title decided by the distributor? Had a similar issue with a low rent distributor that had a film that I shot. Not only did they change the title, but they made it look like Dawn of the Dead with their cheesy photoshopped posters, they comped an image of the main actor into a shopping mall surrounded by zombies, there was even a werewolf in the clip art montage. As a result some of the reviews complained that it wasn't a zombie movie. It wasn't a zombie movie!

    Yes, I was a bit concerned at first but then I realised it might have been a genius move. It just gives people something to talk about. In this day and age it's difficult to pierce through the noise... If you made a zombie movie I'm sure you know that very well. Of course some people just can't go beyond the fact that it's a recliner and not a sofa and give the film a bad review scoring without even bothering to watch the film... It's just how it is. But the distributor didn't touch the film. Your case seems a bit more extreme though... :| funny story, but not really.....

    Yes, my camera shows a lot of FPN in the dark. The only way to get a clean image in the dark is really to use lights. I didn't go crazy with lights but I had enough to get the job done. All LED's. I used Aputure lights: 1x120t, 1xLS1 and 2xAmaran 620's. With a few lights you can really get a clean and cinematic image with this camera!

    Yes!!
