    @CaptainHook 's new LUTs for BM 4kFilm and Film - direct link


  • What is all this IR talk I hear? Can someone please inform me?

  • I've shot with BMCC for 3 months now and I have had no situation where I jumped up and said "this is IR polluted". Nothing I wasn't able to easily correct in post.

    It looks to me like he's underexposed and wb is off.

  • Well to be fair we just figured this out really over at BMCuser and what IRNDs to use.

  • He feels confident, but his image is IR-polluted (with brown/magenta tint) because he didn't know that you should always use IR cut filters on BM cameras.

  • So far I am feeling fairly confident with operating this camera, it has minimal controls and only four different menus of options to chose from. It's all fairly straight forward so I won't go into too much detail, only that if you know how to operate a DSLR, then you won't feel lost moving up to the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

  • @CaptainHook thanks for the amazing LUT! Just donated also.

    @vicharris Yeah, i never shoot below 2.8. I also added a bit of sharpening in post.

  • Thanks @vicharris. Possibly could've have squeezed it down to 3mins, but just felt that this particular story needed a little more time to breath. It was a tough call.

  • @Bozzie Nice looking stuff man. I read on the Vimeo page you had some problems cutting it down to make the festival but I think you might have been able to make it! It's always hard to kill your babies and I know there's not a lot of time in these things but I think you could have gotten the story you wanted in that time. Don't get me wrong, it looks great but I think you could have squeezed it in.

  • The Visitor - A short film I was recently the Cinematographer and Editor on. BMCC, 24fps, Prores.

  • Oh shit! Didn't even see the Prores part. Even better than! I take it you had the Voights stopped down a bit then. 2.8-4ish?

  • @azza_act - looks great. Prores is so underestimated! Great job and thanks for the mention! :)

  • Thanks guys!

  • @azza_act Nice, clear, sharp footage.

  • @azza_act Very nice images. I liked the last one in particular. Looks better than most still camera shots.

  • Just some stills taken from a shoot on the weekend using the bmcc in PRORES. Using the Nokton 17.5mm and the 42.5mm lens. Using the captain Hook LUT

  • Little christmas greeting we made on the black magic. One shot - all night!

  • @rockroadpix @itimjim

    Thanks guys. I'm just trying to figure out resolve and this is actually just a LUT I made up that plays on the whole American/Micheal Bay/orange-teal look. I know it's a little overboard and would probably never use it for narative work but it works well for landscapes. Works better in daylight since I built it to crush the hell out of the blacks.

    It's just for fun :)

  • Just a little test shoot from today shooting prores

  • Love the color work there, @vicharris

  • Very Silly Star Wars Parody - Your Empire Needs You

    All kinds of wrong with this, as it was unplanned. Director asks for a dolly shot, all I've got is my shoulder, hang on no monitor, can't see the screen, ok hold it in your hands get the picture. Shot at 5600k under tungsten, with other florescent and halogens spilling into the shot...anyway, good fun.

    Shot BMCC MFT 2.5K, MFT > FD SpeedBooster, Canon FD 28/2, Sound in camera using JuicedLink BMC388. Edited in PP CC, grade in SG CC, FX in AE CC, all round tripped without intermediate renders - nice!

  • @vicharris excellent mate. I wish I had something as scenic at my doorstep. Well at least one where it wasn't bloody raining all the time.

  • @bozfx Looks nice. Really liked some of that train footage - reminded me of that Denzel movie with the runaway train.

  • And here's some of the same shots from the pocket desert video but shot with the 2.5K, the SLR Magic 12mm MKII and some long shots with the Rokinon 85mm t1.5

    The last clip was left in even though it looks completely different to demonstrate how you can really screw yourself mixing IRNDs and a CP. Color was so different I couldn't get the grade the same even though all the same steps were used. Good lesson learned :)

    Oh, and there's a 2K HD version available so that's why the shift to youtube.
