For our final scenes and pick-up shots on the film, like this one, we decided to use Driftwood's Moon V hack. We found it provided deeper blacks and a good contrast and gradients in low light, particularly at 640 ISO.
This shot is as we shot it. No color grading, anamorphic compression, or editing. :42 sec.
Back to editing now. Look for Mandorla in 2014.
BTW, we are trying the tip jar with this video. Mandorla is a low budget indie film by necessity. Any support, even if it just covers our Vimeo bill, would be deeply appreciated by all of us working (with little or no pay) to realize this dream.
