In June I was lucky enough to attend Blackmagic’s pop-up editing event in London. Learning more about Da Vinci Resolve 14 was an eye opener as it adds yet another dimension to Raw and ProRes workflow.
Now, to complete the capture side of the picture, I have begun working with my new favourite camera the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.
Having been an ENG style man before, working with ProRes (ungraded) footage is a new feeling, but one I am oddly at home with.
Add that to the challenges of finding lenses that will work with the Pocket’s 2.8 crop factor and I’m in a whole new place when it comes to production planning and shooting.
In August/September, I begin shooting my sci-fi short and I’ll be shooting with the pocket cinema camera (BMPCC). I’ll begin auditions in the next couple of weeks and so I’ll post details of the growing cast and crew.
I’ve no doubt there will be test footage to show before September and more than a few war stories to share. So, if you have the patience and the want, follow this blog and I’ll keep you up to date on the short film’s progress.
Thanks for reading.
