This is the first commercial production I’ve had a chance to create using our new Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Since the images were placed in frames with flaring and reflection effects, the full color and resolution cannot be appreciated here. But I can tell you the original footage, after grading in Resolve, looked incredible. All scenes were shot using two lenses, a 17-40mm f4/L (for which I used a variable ND to control exposure) and a 70-200mm f2.8/L. Some scenes required slipping a graduated ND in the matte box as well to keep some color in the sky.
