1. In One Breath- A Video Essay

    This is my first attempt at a video essay I put together featuring some of my most favorite long takes in movies. Most of these long takes are also tracking shots, which are super complicated and impressive when they are pulled off. The scenes featured in this compilation range from 2 minutes to 99 minutes. Enjoy!

      Don't want to see any on-screen titles? Check out the original cinematic version (highly recommended): http://bit.ly/1r9qAY1 Read more on ‘Cinefile 2014’, including the shot-by-shot breakdown, reasoning and more: http://bit.ly/1DUTAbM Don't forget to follow me on Twitter! bit.ly/1qfhS6w It’s almost impossible to describe the impact that 2014 has had on me. Throughout the past year, I've learned that the magic of cinema isn't something that can be explained, but rather felt. Every year, we’re reminded what it means to be filmmakers, enthusiasts, critics, or even just casual goers – twenty-four frames at a time – and this year was no exception. Whether it be from heavy hitters such as ‘Interstellar’, ‘Edge of Tomorrow’, and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, to smaller, more heartfelt films like ‘Birdman’, ‘Still Alice’, and ‘Begin Again’, it seems that 2014 has left a small piece for everyone to make their own. That’s exactly what I've tried to accomplish with ‘Cinefile 2014’. As opposed to last year’s video, this is something I really wanted to delve into and take every risk I originally intended to take last year. I’m glad I did, because the end product is something that resonates with me so much more than anything I've ever done. ‘Cinefile 2014’ is my small piece of the year – take it or leave it. From the bottom of my heart, I’d like to extend a deepest thank you to anyone who’s ever watched, shared, or enjoyed any of my work.

        • Using Resolve Lite to work with Phantom .cine raw files

          We just wrapped up a day of shooting with a Phantom Flex camera, which was a lot of fun, and were left with ½ a terrabyte of phantom raw files in .cine format. We spent some time trying to figure out the best way to work with these files and found several solutions online, but nothing mentioning what we ended up using, which is free, and let us work directly with the base raw file and do our first color pass. First, We tried the cineviewer software from the Vision Effects, ( http://goo.gl/xSTtB ) the maker of the camera, and it does let you export out to various formats, but we were not happy with the workflow or the quality (dpx for instance) and found the interface left a lot to be desired. Plus, it only runs on windows and we do most of our video work on macs. The second method we heard about was using a codec called gluetools ( http://www.gluetools.com/ ), which allows you to bring it into the program of your choice (the exception being Nuke / NukeX). We decided against this because we don’t do a lot of Phantom shoots and didn’t really want to spend $800. The camera tech, Michael from 444 Camera ( http://444camera.com/index.html ), suggested we check out resolve, by blackmagic design. We found out that the free “Lite” version of resolve ( http://goo.gl/jzqgX ) allowed us to open the raw cine files, do a first pass color correction and then export these out to the format of our choosing, in this case quicktime prores 4444. The interface was daunting at first so we thought we show you briefly how we got the footage into resolve and back out ready to be used in our production. hope this helps -the impossible engine team
