what's a "Spec Trailer?" don't let my post count fool you :-)

i like the grabs, but it doesn't make sense. is this a commercial, a short, or a feature? (they look good either way)

This is a proof of concept trailer for a marketing spoof feature comedy. I directed it for Green Machine studios. I also operated the GH13 on many of the scenes. Thanks!

The above are GRABS taken from GH13 footage. The video below is the Promo for the Spec idea. I was hired to Direct, Run Camera, Edit, VFX, CC, and do Sound. And in only a few days before a deadline. It was CRAZY but very very fun.

I will be DPing a Feature film in LA in November. It is an amazing script with big names. It will be shot on two GH13's.

Thanks! I directed and did the camera work, so I appreciate it.

No budget...and we had to shoot and finish it for a deadline so we had about 5 days.

Wow ,

The only thing they didn't ask you do do was be one of the principle actors (or did they?)

Anyway you are obviously a guy with a lot of hats and they all fit real well!

great stuff

I especially like the spot where they get in the car ,with all the smoke around them and you cut back and forth with the commercial it is hilarous and the two guys do that part really well ,good reactions facial expressions.

Congratulations man!
So could you tell me what exactly does the hack do? I mean, what do you get from the GH13 you dont get from the GH1?

Very cool :D Some dodgy acting - especially when they were thrown out the building... but it doesn't matter in this kind of thing :grin:

Would love to hear a bit about what film settings you used / types of lenses.

You get over 40 mbps instead of 17, so much less compression. No noise, no banding and MUCH less aliasing problems. It basically tunrs the cheap camera into an incredibly powerful one that makes gloriously beautiful images.



...Would love to hear a bit about what film settings you used / types of lenses.

I used the smooth setting with contrast -2 and sharpness -2. We shot on 50mm f 1.4 Nikon, 28mm F2.8 Nikon, 85mm F1.2 Nikon, the 20mm F1.7 panasonic pancake, and the stock lens 14-140 zoom. We shot everything in FHD mode with the hack.

The sound was problematic. What mic was that? You had a sound recordist?

Matt Sconce
10-08-2010, 02:33 PM
Audio technica old shotgun. No sound recordist = Problematic sound. I wanted them to have professional sound but that did not happen. Ah well. It was fun to shoot and direct.
