The Debut: Wii Spec Spot, shot on RED, now online at PVC

Wii Spec Spot, 1k version

Here it is, finally finished. Phew! Now I know why I’m not in post production. I’ll write a blog entry on my stupid post mistakes later; for now, enjoy!

Details that may be interesting to the reader:

Shot 4k 2:1

Edited in 2k on Final Cut Pro

Redcode 36

Color correction applied to RedLog-exported footage from RedCine, using Colorista

Zeiss Ultra Primes, mostly at T2

Schneider True-Cut IR filter used on every shot except for the TV (16mm Ultra Prime saw some off-angle cyan vignetting)

All shots daylight- or 4500k-balanced (the TV had to be shot under a daylight balance, for proper color, so I shot everything else daylight for consistency) except for the ceiling shot, which was done at 3200k to keep the light bulbs from going too warm

There’s one shot that was done on a Lensbaby. See if you can pick it out.

More soon.
