*Shot with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera in ProRes

***Note for BMCC Shooters: To some this video is not remarkable. (technically speaking only!). However, a couple of things to keep in mind when watching it:

I had no lights on the camera facing the talent, and the backlight issue would have prevented any other camera with less dynamic range to see anything but a silhouette in the foreground.

However the BMCC gave us a well balanced image despite the backlight issue.

Also, the close-ups of Adam Besserman are resized and reframed from the footage. I essentially just zoomed in on his face in post to add some shot variety. This is interesting, because the footage was so good, I was able to do it with no noticeable image degradation.
