I’ve had so much interest in the low light test that I shot nearly a year ago with Kate Dennis. In fact according to Vimeo, 21 000 of you sat through the entire 20 mins and nearly triple that started the video.
Now, I’m not looking to make this an annual event, but I was thinking of doing a little reprise of it, with an idea to shoot towards the end of this year.
So, I’d like to canvas what to look at this time, and how to do it differently.
Firstly, I think that I’d like to do something a little more polished and under more controlled conditions lighting wise.. So rather than available light, it would be lit in a more traditionally filmic way.
I still want to follow the same format though. I want to have a short story idea that drives the photographic decision making. I would do the same thing, whereby we shoot the same story, using the same shots and just change the cameras over.
Having more controlled lighting condition should help all of the cameras look their best, but it will take a lot more for me to organize as I’ll have to organize a much larger crew. Not only that, I’ll be faced with having to find a way to fund it with an increased production crew. The low light test had a small crew of 3 aside from Kate and I and a more ambitions looking test will need a lot more support.
I’m pretty keen to test the Sony F65. I guess the new Canon 1Dx should be in there. 35mm and Super 16 of course. Im interested to hear your thoughts though on what else you’d like to see tested.
The plan would be to get it finished again to a 35mm print and a DCP as well, and once again, organize a screening.
Let me know your thoughts !
