Title: ML Raw shot in Lamu island, Kenya - Forodhani house director's cut
Post by: Africashot on July 04, 2015, 06:27:15 AM
This video was shot in Lamu at Forodhani house in November 2014.
ML features used: ML Raw on 5D2, focus peaking, histograms, intervalometer, and many more!
The frequent prayer calls inspired me to record the call for a morning prayer and use it as background track, unfortunately the religious nature of the track didn't make the video viable commercially, to read more about this production please visit: http://africashot.com/the-magic-island-of-lamu/ to see the final version visit: http://forodhanihouse.com/en

Very very well done! very beautiful shots...i enjoy the warm and cozy sense of it... neat fast cut! ... the colors are very pleasing to the eye and tempts the audiences to come over there and visit! :D

nice choice of music punches with the picture and edit...

Any detail about the workflow and colorgrading process?

good job

Thanks Ali!

Regarding the process: I shot mostly Raw with a few exceptions where I needed the sound (was using an older build without mlv) I rendered the DNG files with the vision log profile into prores 444 files in After effects applying basic white balance and eventually pushing a stop of exposure back or forth in Camera Raw, then cut the whole thing together in Premiere and used Davinci Resolve for the grade... that's pretty much it!
