What Inspires me: Great Wooden Boats by Philip Bloom
Shot on Red Epic, this is a great piece of storytelling with the subject telling his story and the visuals adding to that. This is a nice micro documentary profile piece on a little known art and craft.
My only issue is the 2.35:1 aspect ratio. For me it’s awkward to watch due to the extreme horizontal format, but otherwise a well done piece.
What Inspires Me: TimeScapes – Rapture by Tom Lowe @timescapes
Amazing timelapse work – go full screen and turn up the volume!
The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has released a teaser for their new series “Master Class” on their website.
The video shows that the B-camera in the production of the series appears to be done completely on Canon DSLR’s with Redrock Micro support rails, matte boxes, Follow Focus and their new EVF – The full teaser in MP4 format can be downloaded and viewed from the OWN website at http://goo.gl/2sUIm. Primary A-Roll camera is confirmed to be using a Red camera.
In QT player, you can clearly see the setups at TC 1:30 and 2:29.
The camera at timecode 2:39 shows the RED as the primary camera.
The image quality is outstanding as I originally saw this teaser on cable with a HDTV and went searching for the web version of the teaser. The image quality more than held up to “broadcast” standards – especially intercut with the RED footage I’m curious as to their post production workflow as well.
With all the money there disposal, this is a major announcement to prove DSLR video is really ready for broadcast.
