Steve it was a film work, SiFi actually. On RED, 50 mm lence, wide open,in "We shut the rehearsal" situation, night...on the eleventh hour in the rain:) I was exosted and angry after 10 long takes whit bad focus. Now I feel much better
Poul, thank you for your complete answer. Of course you are right for everiting. My qustion was almost rhetorical. I did everityng like in the books. My equpment is top noch, WFF too, AC was experienced, I hit the marks (the actors didn't) That wasn't the big problem. The problem was in unexperienced Director whо told me "Soft focus is your fall, becouse you are the camera operator, you have to see that and try to avoid it"
. DP kept political silence...
Now...everything is good when finished good
