Great Directors, directed by Angela Ismailos, features conversations with ten of the world's greatest living directors: Bernardo Bertolucci, David Lynch, Liliana Cavani, Stephen Frears, Agnes Varda, Ken Loach, Todd Haynes, Catherine Breillat, Richard Linklater and John Sayles. The film documents Ismailos' voyage of discovering the creative personalities behind the camera. She explores the filmmakers' artistic evolution and personal identity, the role of politics and history on their work, and the agony and dilemmas in the creative process. It also examines the challenges of being an artist in an age of commercialism and globalization. The film traces the influence of cinematic movements and iconic directors on these directors' work-from the role of Neo-Realism in Bertolucci's evolution to the influence of Federico Fellini on David Lynch, Ingmar Bergman on Catherine Breillat and Rainer Werner Fassbinder on Todd Haynes.
My workflow is quite easy. All you do is import the DNG's in AE. Adobe Camera RAW will automatically open and let you grade the 1st frame. After grading, click done and it will import all the frames with the same grade you did on the 1st frame. Set in and out points and render!
No noise removal was done and everything was graded in Adobe Camera RAW only.
I can't thank Magic Lantern enough for the work they have done. This quality and DR compared to H.264 is absolutely mind boggling. Now lets wait for them to get the hack 100% stable and enjoy our new cameras!
