    Hey guys, just sharing some screengrabs from something I DP'ed last weekend. It's a film called Lament which is about a man who's poor choices trap him in a state of limbo. In order to move forward, instead he must go backwards and relive the pain many times over until he has proven worthy to continue.

    I know this isn't Blackmagic content but this forum is where I cut my teeth as a working DP and I always appreciate what you guys have to say.

    We shot this in 3 and a half days. The script was 25 pages. We had no crew (me, my AC, a sound guy, and a make-up artist, the lead actor was the director) and little money. But damn if we didn't get it done despite the impossible.

    Shot on Epic-W Helium directly to 2K Prores. These are all taken from an 8K or 6K window on the sensor - I utilized the hell out of that feature to minimize lens changes. Since it was all being scaled to 2K the difference in 8K and 6K were just about moot.

    Lenses used:

    Tokina 11-16 for all the daylight exteriors and driving scenes
    Zeiss Contax 35mm f/1.4 for just about everything else.
    Zeiss Contax 50mm f/1.4 for the bedroom closeups.
    Zeiss Contax 100mm f/2 for the couch closeups.
    1/4 Black Pro Mist for all the daylight exteriors

    Any questions or critiques, I'd love to hear it. There are definitely things I would have done differently had we had the time, crew, and money for it, but that's the way these things always go.

    Enjoy

    The coolest part about the Seattle region - and probably why so many movies and TV shows have been shot here - is that the VARIETY of settings is astounding. You need a setting that looks like ________? Yup, it's here.
    THAT is an enormous change from trying to visualize things in Arizona.

    Ah, yeah that makes a lot of sense. That's a big reason LA works so well, too. Sunny all the time, drive an hour or two inland if you need desert, go into the mountains if you need forests, go the beach if you need ocean, etc etc etc.
