Little impression of the Amsterdam DSLR meeting that Gert Kracht put together during the 2012 IBC.
First time I went to one of these meetings and had a laugh with Jan van der Meer for absolutely no reason, talked movies with a guy I sadly don't remember his name, who is a cinema Guru, the guy knows his movies! (He sees Dutch people.. OMG) a talented guy from Amsterdam called Najib and Philip Bloom was there passing along his BMCC.
Updated version: Converted with the lovely film convert, read more about it here:
And added a adjustment layer with sharpen 20.
Shot Canon 5DII with an ancient nikkor 55mm F1.2 lens, the first few shots where done with the 100-400 Canon zoom, very lovely lens but not really for low ligh. Did bring a little gitzo tripod but it's pretty bad for movement, although the guys did pull it apart and used the fluid head on some pimpy red slider thing as you can see in the video :P
First project I edited in CS6 quick 3 hour edit with no grading, this is pretty much how it comes out of the camera.
While waiting we shot a little video with Jan about his wide angle lens on his nokia phone:
And an interview with Gert Kracht about all the big plans for the next meeting:
And to round things of, Jan responded to his with his own video:
What can I say, it's always nice when someone responds to your work with compliments :)
