Year Countries Canada. World Premiere. Everfall Eva Saint, a fallen figure skating phenom, skates for her life in this supernatural thriller from John Kissack.By Aaron BernakevitchDecember 7, in Lighting. Seeing what your ideas are for lighting film noirs.

I have never D. P'ed' anything so night and contrast drivin. I have been watching alot of the oldies and taking pointers from all the epics noirs - The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, a lot of fritz lang and some newer films.

Wondering if you guys have any good pointers for lighting styles or suggestions for proceesing looks weather in camera or post. Also I have used a fog machine before but never a haze machine, we are talking about using this for our shoot - any suggestions for that. One thing you have to keep in mind about film noir is the harsh shadows. Thos old movies was shot on very slow film, so it was extremely bright inside those studios. If I were you I would just do everything in camera and use all post produciton stuff for back up.

Practically all of your lighting will be hard.

Are you shooting video or film. If you are shooting film then what stock? One thing I always loved about noir was the composition. I love not having to light the main charecter whos talking. You can let them go black, you can put them in a little window in a weird place in frame almost so you dont see them, but use the composition to draw the eye to that charecter. Like has been said before flag. Let blackness devide the scene.

I like to shoot wide and let the space tell the story, if the scene supports that. One trick I like to use is to make two charecters whos faces are visible in frame light them such that each ones key light is comming from a different part of screen.

It sells the idea of depth in a shallow depth environment. I could go on and on and on about what I like about noir and how to light that noir and dark dramas are my favorite but the main point is you are in the inverse of a comedy. If you want something to go black, let it go really black. If you want just two pools of light to light the only two charecters in the scene and let everything else fall almost dark, do it. Play around with light to your hearts content.

The frame is totally yours, not much would be considered 'wrong' in a noir. Watch the old batman cartoon 90's version, really dark, almost frank millers. Single point light and light control were my big tools like dude said, flag the heck out of the lights.

The noiriest of noirs for me is Touch of Evil. I love how they put black figures agwinst light BGs and lit subjects against black BGs in one shot. If you need a primer on noir, I'd suggest this movie.This has been much talk on aerial's but not a lot of posts on FR or SS. Also I will be going handle held if that changes anything and will definitely be adding stabilization with either smooth cam or istabilize.

Also what resolution for digital finish as well as which red code have you used, if it makes a difference. Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Onwards Aaron. Hope this helps Isn't a gyro-stabilizing system more important than any of that? Yes - if you can afford to buy or rent one. If you do, all the input I gave still applies resolutions, frame rates, shutter speeds and shock mounts if you're shooting with a drive.

Everything dances together in a well-planned aerial shooting session - its all important. Steve, would your recommendations translate for 4KHD 25 project?

I don't see why not. For my projects I normally don't shoot for a 25fps project. The 5 frame slow down when played back on a 25fps timeline timeline will smooth out the playback. Should look good I don't understand the math on the Can someone explain? I'm not understanding why these settings work best for aerial footage.

Thanks in advance, -shooter. Thanks in advance, -shooter Important: shooting high motion subjects, or footage where you're in high motion yourself in and aircraft is not an exact science. Condition vary, and the results you want from the footage also varies. Don't get hung up an being too left brained in your approach to shooting motion.

There are guys who haggle ad naseum over minutae of camera technology - then there are guys who setup the camera in a few ways, test out their setting to see what works, and go out and shoot kick-ass footage - while the haggle guys are still there with a slide rule or computer trying to figure out how the "go get the footage" guys did what they did!

Aerial and high motion subject shooting flat out involves a lot of experimentation and test shots. The point is to reduce or eliminate judder, jitter, shake, etc. Keeping what I've said in mind, here's some insight on the numbers. The 6. In experimentation with shutter speeds for the high motion footage we shoot, we've found that going above an degree shutter also smoothes out slow motion playback.

By our experimentation with aerials and other high speed subject shooting, we found ourselves happy with the 4k, 3k, and 2k profiles I posted in my first post on this thread. If you own a RED camera, and have access to shooting some aerials, test out those profiles. I think you'll find them to your liking.

Each production may have different needs. In other words, real world experimentation always trumps brainstorming in your workshop or studio. It was shot with a shoulder mount and a kenlab ks8 gyro across the horizontal axis. Thanks Steve. I agree. I guess I was just curious "why" it works, which you answered well. I do have a Red camera but no way to shoot aerial footage. I was watching the "Ground Rules by Caterpillar" DVD which was certainly shot by "go get the footage" type people but the aerial footage which I'm assuming was also shot on Red is jittery and really tough to watch and I was just wondering why.

Perhaps that stuff was shot with an older build or perhaps it was ruined in post or compression.Hidden Story Productions HSP helps people and organizations use documentary media as a tool to educate, engage and advocate on social issues. We partner with people to conceptualize their idea, research and investigate it, produce it and distribute it all within a given budget.

It led Chris to re-think his nine-year career in telecommunications software design.

Documentary media was the right blend of the technical, creative, and intellectual. Ever since the transition, Chris has not looked back.

He later directed a participative documentary short called Flood of Change about a group of Nepalese youth who are fighting for better water and sanitation. The film was selected for the Global Justice Film Festival. Hsiung facilitated several documentary workshops for youth in schools, non-profit organizations and aboriginal reserves.

His time spent on reserves ultimately led him to produce and direct his first feature-length documentary Elder in the Makinga film that premiered at the Calgary International Film Festival and won Best Feature Documentary in Alberta. Continuing his exploration of Indigenous culture in Alberta, Chris spent two more years as Executive Producer for over 30 short documentary films and a spectacular projection currently exhibiting at the new Royal Alberta Museum.
