Corporate Video in 96 hours with BMPC4K

edge

For a local company I shot a corporate video from pre-production to finishing in just 96 hours on my BMPC4K. For the overall lighting I used my trusted DIY KinoFlo's and for the interviews some of my old dedolights. Editing and grading were done directly in DaVinci Resolve. I was pretty amazed how smooth everything worked in version 11.2.1. Seems like the BMD guys have done some huge improvements. Here are a couple of BTS shots from the set. I also attached my BMPC4K to a Zeiss microscope to shoot some POV of the specimen. I'm afraid I can't share the video because it's used in-house only.

Samsung LED TV for Color Grading

edge

I just replaced my old Eizo display with a new and cheap 32" Samsung LED TV (Model UE32H6470). I use it for video editing and color grading my stock footage clips. It is connected to my Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Monitor that works with Adobe Premiere, After Effects & DaVinci Resolve. Of course it can't be compared to a Flanders Scientific but man this cheap TV is really amazing and they have a myriad of image controls nowadays! Out of the box it has really good colors and contrast once set to movie mode. I used the AVS HD 709 mp4 clips on the Adobe Premiere timeline to fine tune Brightness, Contrast, Color, Tint & Sharpness. Further fine tuning and RGB balance was done with CalMAN Studio, DaVinci Resolve as pattern generator and a X-Rite i1 Display PRO probe.

BTS of Mark Tarmonea's music video

edge

We made a music video for my pal Mark Tarmonea in our studio. For lighting the background and models I used the 4ft / 4bank DIY KinoFlo's that I've built especially for this purpose - and they were great! Editing was done by Michael Ronge and Color Grading by me. Now Im doing some beauty retouching using a combination of Mocha AE, Beauty Box Video Plugin and Box Blur in After Effects. Here are a couple of snapshots I took with my phone from our shoot: Read More...

5D MK3 RAW & DaVinci Resolve 10

edge

The new version of DaVinci Resolve 10 is finally out there and it works now very good with the „Magic Lantern RAW“ footage from a Canon 5D Mark III. No more fringing or aliasing in the footage! The quality is just amazing!

Some great footage from Andre Meyer can be seen here: Beauty in Nature (5D MK3 RAW)
