    "Chester's sexy Assassins are faced with something different from their average hit, and he's good looking."

    Produced in 48 hours for the Anchorage 48 Hour Film Challenge, the prompts were: a watch, the phrase "I was born ready" and every film needed a flashback scene.

    The film was shot on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with the Canon 15-150 F2.8 C-Mount lens. Lighting was two F&V 1x1 LED panels on batteries, everything else was natural with a flex fill now and again.

    Camera Gear:
    BMPCC firmware 1.2
    Sony 32GB SD cards
    4x generic Nikon Batteries
    Viewfactor Cage + Riser
    CoolLCD rails & handles
    Canon 2.8 15-150mm TV lens
    Canon 10-22 EFS
    Rode VideoMic Pro for reference track
    Manfrotto 501 nothing special just the lightest sticks in the fleet.

    The film looks really nice, thanks for sharing.

    Did you notice any dropped frame using the Sony 32GB card at all?

    Nope, card works fine. I personally use Sandisk Extreme series, but Sony is what we had empty at the time. We had dropped frames on another shoot that were the result of not formatting the card and only deleting the footage.

    Thanks Michael,
    I had a Sony 32GB Card suggested by CheesyCam and format it everytime before the shoot, however, I still noticed a few dropped frame at the beginning of the every clip though, had you encounter the issue?

    Thanks

    Hi Michael,
    Very nice footage! Funny short film.

    Did you have to modify the lens or the adapter to make it work?
    I have that same lens and have tried a couple of different adapters but can't get it to focus properly.
    I'd really appreciate your help.
    Thanks!

    We did have to modify the lens, we had the shim it, we didn't have to shave anything down though. Before the shim we couldn't get it to focus at all.

    Do you have any further info on the shimming of this lens?
    I ask even when I don't know where I could get a lens shimmed here in my town.

    If you unscrew the lens when it is set at infinity and everything comes into focus (the case with my canon zoom)...then you need to make a small shim which goes between the lens and the adapter (use thin plastic, or can also use transparency sheet etc) so that when the adapter screws on, it cant screw all the way in. Then you will be able to focus correctly.
