Shot ProRes with Metabones BMPCC Speedbooster (Sigma 18-35mm and Tokina 11-16mm)
Music by: Kavinsky - Protovision (Theatre of Delays Remix)
I recently ran audio for a production at the auto show and had a little bit of downtime so I brought the BMPCC with my newly acquired metabones speedbooster and a couple lenses. I didn't have much time and this was done for fun and to check out how the speedbooster performed.
sadly this was done spur of the moment and is mostly handheld but hopefully you can still appreciate the image, really happy with the color, was tempted to shoot raw but only had one memory card with me so didn't bother.
A couple shots somehow ended up with a spot in the corner which was very frustrating to see after the fact, hard to notice details like that on this screen, luckily it was dust or something as the lenses are clean and all other shots after this had no issue.

BAG MAN is the understated story of a 12 year old African American boy, who takes us on an introspective journey out of the city and into the remote countryside of upstate New York. With a mysterious duffle bag in hand, its contents unknown to us, we journey from the urban hustle of Harlem, into the winter-ravaged woodlands a world away. On the road, we slowly discover his real intentions, and the startling significance of what is hidden inside a young boy’s bag.
Directors JONATHAN & JOSH BAKER thrive on combining hauntingly beautiful imagery with quiet layered emotional experiences. The film juxtaposes high-concept visuals with the most regular of everyday characters and environments, creating an extremely relatable story that engages on multiple levels. Collaboration with the highest quality creative talent is essential with all projects they take on, and BAG MAN is no different – from cinematographer NICOLAS KARAKATSANIS (Academy Award Nominated ‘Bullhead’, ‘The Drop’), to LEGACY EFFECTS (‘Iron Man’, ‘Pacific Rim’, ‘Avatar’), to THE MILL (World-leading, international VFX studio), to colorist TOM POOLE (‘Drive’, ’12 Years A Slave’, ‘Foxcatcher’), to original music by Brooklyn-based threesome BIRD COURAGE.
