Hey everyone, I'm a producer on Jane Doe and have taken over the thread for mastermind. I'll try to develop a production log based on what I can remember - feel free to ask specific questions and if I don't know the answer, I'll find out for you.
This has all been shot on 7Ds - usually with one camera, but we had a B camera out for some of the shoot days as well. We do have a teaser trailer that we cut back in February floating around online (I think its in this thread somewhere), but will likely be re-cutting a trailer in the following months...still to be seen however.
We are about 85% through principal photography and are excited to be this close to completion!

If you guys are into it I'd definitely love to make this a production blog of sorts. I know as a filmmaker I loved reading everyone elses production blogs since i joined this site in 2001 i think or whatever it was. so lemme know if you want me to do so aswell and I'd be honoured.

Can you describe the gear breakdown a little further. Which fast primes? How are you handling timecode? Planning a traditional vid assist or just HDMI on camera?Mirror Image Pictures

In terms of lenses i have a canon 85mm 1.8, canon 50mm 1.4 and a sigma 20mm 1.8
For camera i ahve the Redrock DSLR cinema bundle, mattbox with sideflags, follow focus with gears and whip extension, shoulder mount etc..I also picked up the Zacuto Z-finder.
Also picked up a bunch of Shneider Classic Softs 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 2 (i found the 1/8 almost pointless..but i may be mistaken) i have camera tests this week so if i feel my highlights are too diffused with the 1/4 on the wide end i'll then pick up a 1/8. Also grabbed an ND6 and a pola.
I have a "day to day" lighting kit with consists of a couple 2bank flourescent fixtures with kino bulbs in them and a 1k, 650, 300 kit.
Cant think of anything else really worth mentionning here, grip stuff, A/C, etc etc...
I'll be renting every now and then things like an 1.2HMI, doorway dolly and track, jib arm etc.. (basically stuff i cant afford) however that in itself will be sparse.
Oh yeah forgot the monitor, i'm using the HDMI connection with an IKAN 8" hd monitor. not the greatest i know but it is what it is...lol.
In regards to timecode i'm not too sure what you mean there. Can you clarifY? Basicallly i'm shooting a feature so I'm basically gonna shoot, sync and edit. Ofcourse i'll keep my masters of an online cus my system probably wont be able to handle the codec so i'll be editing proxies then relink the original footage for CC and export. I THINK..lol. I'm really new to the 7D (never used the 5d either) just basically have been shooting Red, 35mm and super16mm even HD but no on a still camera yet so just working out all the bugs for myself.

Of course, I'd love to see a production blog...especially since you're shooting with an SLR.
Nice site and best of luck!

Don't forget to check out http://www.cinema5d.com/index.php and http://philipbloom.co.uk/blog/ for all the best 7D info. If you ever get stuck on anything, I recommend looking at Cinema5D first since they've been dealing with the 5D & 7D the longest. Good luck with your shoot, and make sure you keep us updated on the progress!

Excited about this. I agree that timecode is not that big a deal for a feature that is sync-sound on a non-timecode audio device anyway, as long as you keep your rushes organized, you'll be fine.
Definitely be sure to post about this on Cinema7D! The folks there (me!) will be excited about this. Poster looks SLICK.
Sounds like you're editing on a PC? If so, forget about messing around with proxies. Save yourself a headache, and spend a hundred bucks on NeoScene. it works, it really does. Beautiful 4:2:2 codec that transcodes fast, and edits in real time. I did some betatesting for the Cineform guys when the 7D came out, and can confidently tell you that they now have a version of NeoScene that works flawlessly with the 7D. It's worth it.

Why, in the production photos, is there a RED One camera being shown filming this? What a joke.

Maybe because he mentioned that up until now he’s been primarily shooting Red, 35mm, Super 16 and even HD on all of his projects. He said principal photography for this current film doesn’t start until January and he just picked up a 7D expecting a 24 day shoot. I’d guess that photo is from another set. But….what do I know.
