  4. Even if you’re not familiar with the Shirt Kings, chances are that you’ve heard of them before in a rap lyric, or seen their work in outfits donned by the likes of LL Cool J, Jay Z, RZA and Jam Master Jay (RIP). The legendary graffiti-inspired art crew from New York pioneered early hip hop fashion. Their custom air brushed designs were the early precursors to modern day streetwear, now a $60 billion industry, and are renowned for creating one-off designs for New York personalities who would later reign as the crème de la crème of rap royalty.

    Thoughts from Director Kent Willard (@myriad_kent): Here is project we just released in which we took on the challenge of mixing cameras and relatively "new to us" technology. We used the Black Magic Cinema Camera in 2.5K combined with the Sony FS700 outputting to an Odyssey 7Q in 4K. The reasoning behind the always scary challenge of mixing cameras was solely based on weight. Running a MōVI M10 or any 3-axis gimbal system with the awkwardly shaped and weight distributed FS700 body is near impossible without longer stage arms. So we chose to fly the BMCC on the M10 and run the FS700 on our Steadicam Archer 2 sled.

    Once we got past the concerns of mixing the two cameras we quickly realized the two work great together and allowed for us to run vastly different rigs. We flew the BMCC on the M10 with a 14mm Canon Cine Prime running two Bartechs for focus and iris. For the FS700 we ran the 30-105mm Canon Cine Zoom also with two Bartechs for focus and zoom. The two setups allowed us to have some fun with the MōVI M10 set up by building rigs to boom out of and pass off through windows. In a more finessed studio setting, we ran the FS700.

    In post we were surprised how the two actually matched quite well. It seemed the sensor on the FS700 was inherently a bit warmer but still a close matchup once graded and processed. Of course, the latitude of each sensor is slightly different and the FS700's grain is a bit noisier than the BMCC. All in all, we are hyped on how the two paired together for the final and ultimately made for a great production package side by side.
