Short film done to test the Roto Razor 2 of the SGBlade.
Had a few problems, all my fault. First off let dust in when changing the element which you can see on a couple of shots, secondly I had knocked the speed knob right down accidentally and shot most of the time on minimum speed meaning the pattern of the ground glass was visible (you can see in some shots) and also had hideous flickering. None visible in EX1 LCD at the time. Only on Mac when got home. So a good lesson learnt!
I had to trash over 80% of the footage as it was unusable. Shame, because all the good ones were trashed. Had some really nice stuff!
I think this has a nice Bokeh but Razor 1 is sharper. Some CA is evident if you look carefully. Don't know if this is EX1 issue or lens issue or blade issue.
Grading using Magic Bullet Looks. All vignette's done in post.
3 Lenses used. Nikon f2.8 17-35mm. Nikon f2.8 80-200mm. Hartblei Shift Tilt 85mm
