1. Our goal was to set out and shoot a short film that was lit entirely by moonlight. We waited for the moon to become full and on the night of September 8th we set out to explore the coast in California and see what we could find.

    When we arrived at our location, the timing couldn't have been more perfect! It was around 12:30 AM and the moon was barely lighting the beautiful beach. The entire shoot took place between 12:30 AM- 2:00 AM.

    For the first two scenes were shot at a different location a few days before the moon became full. The first scene was shot at 1/25th, f/1.4, 25,600 ISO,
    The second scene was shot at 1/25th, f/1.4, 32,000 ISO

    Our settings for the rest of the video were around 1/30th, f/1.4, ISO 12,800. To give you a perspective of how dark it was, there are a couple photos in the behind the scenes below.

    We did not add any color grading, noise reduction, or sharpness.
    All of the clips are straight out of the camera shot in the PP2 setting.

    You will notice some purple fringing around the left side, The Metabones adapter that we rented had a light leak issue from what it looks like.

    Sony has done an amazing job in creating this camera especially after seeing the quality that has come out of this camera.
