'A Hackney Notebook'
« on: December 07, 2014, 11:34:41 PM »
Hi,

Recently completed a new film, 'A Hackney Notebook', shot 90% Magic Lantern Raw. Big thanks you to the guys at ML for creating a brilliant option with the Canon DSLR :-)

In the east end of London there’s a secret village, a place that defies convention and opens the mind.
Where you’ll find pirates chopping wood alongside the canals, and Jazz players leading funeral processions through the streets. Where you’ll find voodoo grooms marrying queen of heart brides and pop up vintage stores selling yesterdays clothes.

Where old meets new and new meets old, where white meets black and black meets white.
In this village boundaries are pushed and comforts zones expanded. Somewhere in between the artists studios, cruzing grounds and 3 am rowing junkies, in between the dodgy deals, summer BBQ’S and late night lock-ins, you’ll discover something about yourself that you would never discover living anywhere else.

Underneath the police helicopters, in the isles of the organic shops and in the latest pubs, trendiest bars, and cutting edge clubs, you’ll meet new faces and make new friends.
You’ll find your other family.
Hackney.

Exceptionally well done. Did you use a motion control rig or creative zooming in post?

Hey,

Thanks for the comments :-)

Creative zooming

what was the post workflow?

Raw to DNG, then into Lightroom, basic grade in lightroom, (sometimes painting with exposure and lights darks depending upon shot), export as tiffs, then Quicktime 7 as exported pro res, then import into FCP7 with grade.
