Alex Mejia has shot a lovely documentary/commercial film on the Alpha 7S with some slow motion help from an FS700.
The Alpha 7S is lauded for its low-light capability which you can see in abundance here, but also for its rich, cinematic look.
This film is nicely edited and it skillfully tells a story. It's an object lesson in how to make a small scale video with large scale values.
Alex told us:
On the interview shots I used a a 1K softbox, a 250w backlight, and a dimmed 250 spot diffused to fill.
Outdoors was all natural light, I used no bounce.
Indoors was a closed arena with really difficult lighting conditions, bright sunlight outdoors, with no lighting inside. I just had to use the natural light and allow slog2 to shine when it came to exposure.
Everything was graded in Davinci Resolve, using a combination of ImpulZ film Luts and FilmConvert.
And here's his equipment list:
· ImpulZ film luts for color grading
· Shot in one day, with another half day for pickups
· Single operator docu style piece for the launch of her new website.
· Canon lenses 16-35 F/2.8L II 70-200 F/2.8 IS I
· Sony 24-70 f/4.0 Surprisingly good in autofocus mode on the Steadicam.
