We shot this video at Mark Tuckers studio, 'Green Room studios' in Honiton over one day. We recorded videos for two songs, Show Me A Little Mercy and Holborn Avenue, written and performed by Drew Allen and his band.
Notes from DOP:
The video was shot entirely on a Blackmagic 4k Cinema Camera with full Tilta rig and Follow focus.
Due to the enclosed space and low light environment we opted for the Canon F1.2 85mm, F1.8 50mm and the F2.8 24 – 70mm USM II Lenses.
They gave us a great mix of depth of field and detail and also had outstanding colour reproduction.
We shot the video in Apple ProRes 444 format using the film (flat) colour option and used Davinci Resolve for the colour grading.
Even though we opted not to shoot 4k raw we still had plenty of data in ProRes to lift the shadows, darken the highlights and boost the saturation without any signs of degrading in the footage.
After some initial tests we found that iso800 quickly became unusable when the shot was slightly under exposed. Even with the smallest of brightness enhancements we found that the dreaded fixed pattern noise was taking over the footage.
