Love the cat's eyes, and the sunset over the Sea.

Plan B: Gels, barn doors, cinefoil, wooden clothes pins, and a lot of singed fingers. :) A99, 24-70 CZ, F4, 1/125, ISO 2000. DSC05993.jpg We spent a couple of hours arranging and focusing the lights, as well as repositioning the dolly track to get the right angle. A99, 24-70 CZ, F3.5, 1/80, ISO 2500...

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

Here are some shots from the last scene that we recently finished for Ashlock. This is a scene of Ashlock's wife being lost in thought. The moment is represented by showing her alone within a black, empty space. So a "black box" was used for the shoot. Setting up the dolly track in the bla...

I know, right? I didn't have a chance to talk to the family (I was too busy). Now I'm wondering how long they've been living there.

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

The owners allowed us to drill a series of small holes along the wall in order to hang a string of trouble lights. A99, 24-70 CZ, F3.2, 1/200, ISO 3200 DSC03377.jpg Lights are set.

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

Thanks guys! Yes, the guy working on the lights is the Director. This is his project, so he's making sure everything's perfect. That kitchen was very interesting. Stepping into it was like being thrown back in time. The following shots are from a scene where the main character, Ashlock, initially en...

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

Hi All, I just found out that we've got one more scene to shoot for Ashlock, but that won't happen for several more weeks. In the meantime, I thought I'd post a few shots from earlier scenes. This group of shots is from a scene of an awkward moment between Ashlock and his family during dinner. It wa...

Re: Novel use of video

Very interesting. That reminds me of a scene from the movie Eagle Eye, where the good guys try to keep an evil computer from listening to a recorded message that they play while inside a "secured" room. But they forgot about the cup of coffee. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_wMF0rBA6I At...

Re: Ice (open thread)

Another set from the Chain of Rocks. Sig The ice sits quietly behind the "rapids" at the low-water dam. I'm not an engineer, but I'm guessing that the pressure of the river current rising up and over the low-water dam keeps the larger pieces of the ice-flow pushed back. A99, 24-70 CZ, F8, ...

Re: Ice (open thread)

Valery,
I like all of the drama in your shot. The sharp chunks of ice, the solidness of the train trestle, and a very ominous looking sky. :)
