This 2 minute short confronts monstrosity in 21st century nature. It is not intended to shock or titillate, but to warn and educate ;-)
Created using a Cinemascope workflow that includes in-camera masking from Magic Lantern, the creation of a simple, reusable, downloadable Cinemascope mask for FCPX from Motion 5, and cropping a 1920x800 ProRes master output via Compressor 4.
Read the blog post:

*UPDATE: As it turns out, FCPX has a similar Widescreen filter to FCP7, they just changed the name! The FCPX version of the filter is called "Letterbox." So the Cinemascope Mask from Motion 5 is redundant. (This is good. Yay.)
*UPDATE: Better yet: Alex4D has created an excellent adjustable matte effect for FCPX - Alex4D Widescreen Matte - which is better than the FCPX "Letterbox" effect. It has settings for every conceivable format.
What you need:
Magic Lantern firmware hack for your Canon HDSLR:
(Or put tape across your screen :-)
Alex4Ds Widescreen Matte
Compressor 4 to create a cropped Cinemascope master. FCPX currently has very limited output options.
