Download the "original MOV" (below) to see the video in higher-quality, less-compressed 1920 x 1080. This video was created by Peter J. DeCrescenzo and Sam Locklin using a Blackmagic Cinema Camera generously loaned to me by DVeStore.com . About the BMCC: blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagiccinemacamera/

Info about this video: Recorded using the BMCC’s “ProRes 422 HQ” 220 megabit/sec. mode set to “Video” (Rec.709) gamma. The BMCC was set at 800 ASA, with the white balance set to 3200K, 29.97 fps. The camera’s zebras were set at 100%. Exposure & lighting was adjusted so that a white card positioned in directly front of the talent’s face was just below clipping (e.g.: no zebras).

When shooting ProRes or DNxHD, the BMCC records its best balance of high dynamic range & low noise @ ISO 800 (its native ISO), and using the BMCC “Film” DR setting. However for this video I wanted to see what the BMCC’s “Video” mode looked like.

I didn’t use any ND filters for this shoot, but just an FYI: When using ND >9, adding an IR cut filter (such as Tiffen's IRND series) is advised. See:

Audio:

[Note: These audio settings were used with BMCC firmware v.1.2. Later firmware versions may require different settings. Always record your own tests to verify settings appropriate for your production & workflow.] Recorded in-camera using a Sennheiser ME64 mic through a SoundDevices MixPre preamp. The line level output of the mixer was recorded by the BMCC set to "Line level", with input levels set at 85%, and the BMCC's internal mic set to 0% (off). Using these settings, the MixPre's test tone plays @ -18db in FCP7.

Lenses: 45 year old Nikkor "F" SLR primes; the interview wide shot is a 35/2; the close up is a 85/1.8; both at f4.

Interview lighting: Key light is a 2K Arri tungsten fresnel bashing through a white cotton bed sheet; the back/hair light is a 250w Mole tungsten fresnel through diffusion. A 48" white bounce reflector is located just off-screen on the talent's left (camera right). The BMCC was set at 800 ASA, with the white balance set to 3200K, 29.97 fps

Cutaways shot using a jib from ezfx.com, and a slider built using parts from igus.com/wpck/default.aspx?pagename=filmtechnology.

Edited in FCP7.
