Lost Hearts Pick Up Shoot Eastnor Castle

Current ProjectsPosted by Benedict Mart Sat, April 23, 2016 11:19:24
Well we have the final footage from the pick ups for Lost Hearts production. It was a busy but rewarding day as Max bought together all the elements for a fantastic shoot, from booking the castle location to organising the crew from costume to make up to props to camera. All worked really hard and were brilliant.

Below is a small video of the drone footage. I filmed the drone flying on my phone camera and made a low res proxy file of the 4k GH4 footage the drone captured. Lee and gang were on the controls.

Here's another small clip of low res proxy files captured in 4k S log of the interior of the castle scenes. the camera crew managed to get some of the shots story boarded but due to props and furniture they was slight variation.

Below are some Jpeg Stills from the files(low res...)

Since the pick up shoot I have backed up the files onto a master back up Hard Drive. After that I am creating low res proxy files so I can edit this in CS6 that is the original NLE it was cut in. At some point I need to speak with the Colourists (which I now believe the guys at Cheltenham Film Studios are doing) to finalise the work flow for delivery as this project has various formats from 720p to 1080 DNG to 4k S log files.

Really looking forward to cutting these scenes and getting the FX shots back and finally passing this on to the next stage... ever closer to completion:-)

Finally got to say again fair play to Max and the production team as well as the actors, they all gelled together and we have some great scenes in the can. Well Done!
