Another bit of rigging fun- the G-jib with a Oconnor head and a tilt plate standing by provided the right distance and angle for this overhead shot. With digital cine-cameras having native daylight balanced sensors I am finding more and more that I prefer to light with daylight- gives a cleaner looking image overall and doesn’t make a meta-data version of a raw or log file look radically different. Only hurdle is flicker- Power Gems has come out with a line of hi-speed, flicker free ballasts which are apparently wonderful and flicker-free to 1000 frames per second! I have yet to test these but I have heard great things. This will make a huge difference for hi-speed work given that the light output from an HMI is around 5x that of a tungsten fixture, and there never seems to be enough light when shooting hi frame rates!
