I took a single 4k shot with the Blackmagic Production Camera: a couple minutes over a picnic lunch. Then, editing in 1080p, I panned and scanned shots from the image to direct attention to characters as it seemed most relevant. It seems to work well enough that I forget I'm looking at a single shot. Peculiar.
The kids are having a picnic lunch. Smudgy mouse-face Audrey seems to have had some kind of disagreement with both her mother and her brother. She is saying, “I only like Dad now.” To prove it, she brings me a piece of her toasted cheese sandwich. Having already given it to me, she then decides it’s too painful to part with and takes the cheese back, leaving me with a couple soggy squares of bread. Anna laughs. The rocket incident is self explanatory. A snapshot of my life.
Shot on Blackmagic Production Camera at 4k with a Tokina 11-16 f2.8 lens. Graded with a 3 Strip LUT from Osiris.
The image is only ever shown at 100%, with the exception of the title shot which is 400%. No sound was recorded.
This was a very fun and strange experience. It’s like editing a multi-angle shoot - only from a single angle. It’s completely unnatural. It would never normally happen. But it’s a different kind of fun - a new challenge. And it feels like it could be refined to work better. The spacing of people and the ratio of shots could be calculated better. It would be great if you could get a single character, a two shot, and a wide.
