I come home empty... "Je rentre le ventre vide" (In French)
« on: October 08, 2019, 01:58:24 PM »
Here is a short movie in my series =>  Sequences without consequence...
Title :  I come home empty...


Camera : Canon 5D MarkIII

3 Canon lenses

  • Canon 35mm f:2 USM
    Canon 50mm f:1.4
    Canon 85mm f:1.8

    4 Compact Flash Komputer Bay 128Go 1066x


Light : 3 Led Panels :

 Two Yongnuo YN-600L II 5500k just in front véhicule throught a diffusion châssis de diffusion at 50cm from the light sources at 4 mètres from the car.
 One YONGNUO YN600 RGB on the side of the car to create a color light border on the back side of actors

Workflow / Steps / softwares :

  • Batch_MLV => MLV Development in .DNG
    Resolve15 => Audio Synchro sound engineer with  (bad) camera Mic
    Resolve15 => DNxHD 10 bits Proxies
    Vegas Pro17 => Editing (with Proxies)
    Vegas Pro17 => AAF Protools export to create the final audio Mix
    Vegas Pro17 => Export final editing in XML to Resolve15
    Protools => final mix export wave 48Hz -24bits stereo to Resolve
    Resolve15 => Final color grading (DNG)+ add the final mix Wave file
    Resolve15 => Export the master in DNxHD 444+ ProRes 444 (for archive) and H264 ( for Vimeo / youtube)
    Resolve15 => Export 2K Master in DCI 24p ratio 2:39
    DCP o Matic => DCP DCI 24p stereo


Conclusion :

  • 95% of the "image Look" is made in set with light, 5% only in Resolve
    No LUT used, just custom classic tools from Resolve15 (nodes / curves / color mask / noise reduction / tracking mask/ color weels...
    To be precise, one input LUT to convert BM DNG colorspace in Rec-709.

That was incredible! Your work is always by far among the best cinematic stuff I have seen using Magic Lantern! What was your recording resolution? Did you use the crop_rec module at all?

Thank's so much !

Recording resolution =>  FullHD 1920x1080
Did you use the crop_rec module =>  No. For what reason ? I've never use it (just for tests).

I never re-frame a shoot, then, no reason to shoot in high resolution...
I upscale the Full HD final Master in 2K to make a DCP at the end of my workflow, wich is a very smal Upsale. The image texture is very nice in a big movie theater screen, quiet "cinematic" in fact.
Framing is so crucial to even think shooting in 4k to re-frame in post.

Sometimes, I zoom a bit in post to simulate a smooth traveling. I know I can zoom 15% and max 20% in a FHD image, without any big visible impact in the image. This is the only "trick" I do in post, concerning the frame (and add a 2:39 letter box !!)

Thank you very much for your comment !

I will add english subtitles.
The Pith :
This woman complains that her lover did not make love to her when she came to see him.
Then she thinks of her husband, of his mother ... everyone fuck her tonight ... she is exhausted.
No one is in the car, outside of her....
