Behind the Scenes: Filmshoot

Well I was asked to help with a small film shoot this weekend (apperently i'm doing a restaruant commercial next?? Mike?... lol). Anyway, I was asked to come in as DOP (Director of Photography) on this one so we set up at a studio out on Queen East owned by one of Mike's friends and his girlfriend was kind enough to step in for some exposure tests and white balance tests. I took a break for a moment and grabbed my still camera as we were setting up video monitors and shot this 'behind the scenes' shot. It turned out pretty well I think :)

The videos we're shooting are slate-videos.... just short demos for actors at a Toronto-based agency (hance the simple backdrop). Setup was tonight (17th) and the shoot is tomorrow (18th) -- yesterday by the time this posts.

-PP: Only work in a raw editor. exported as photoproRGB 16 bit file and used photoshop to convert to sRGB for the web. Oh, I did a quick blue-curve adjustment since the conversion process was adding a green cast.

hey sl,

congrats on your new project. i really like the way the shot is set up. i particularly like the dof and the fact that the image of the girl is blurred in the video camera and on the screen. the blurred effect stands nicely against the crisp, clean shot of the girl.

I like these "at work" photos. This one is well composed - model centre and the rest of the set not intruding. Nice work.
A great one - Bravo ! smile
