I find it interesting when people concentrate on the negatives rather than the positives. Particularly when it comes to technology.
The hilarious animation above was sent to me five times yesterday. Although all the arguments the little bear ‘cinematographer’ give seem valid. I think the little bear ‘producer’ is making the most sense.
If you would like to argue, perhaps you should first watch the clip below. Directed by fellow Exiteer Garth Davis and shot by Greig Fraser, who tells me “there were no lights used at all” during the shoot. It was also made with a small crew, the only way of making (in this circumstance), the seemingly impossible, possible.
Greig used Panovision ‘film’ lenses on the 5D (using a PL mount). Which makes the 5D even more viable aesthetically. I have seen Ride at full rez and it’s even more beautiful. It would be just as stunning blown up and projected onto a cinema screen as well I’m sure. Screw you little cinematographer bear!
I promise this will be my last gushy 5D post for a while…
