Hi all;

When I go to the theater I'm just astounded at how perfect every shot is. They're precise and perfect almost without fail.

I'm wondering if anyone has ever taken their video assist copy of a shot and split screened it with the final version?

It's just amazing to me that the filmmaking/image capture has progressed so far.

Simple or complex shots; crane, tripod, dolly, steadicam are so perfect I'm just in disbelief, at how good they are. It's a tribute to everyone's skills.

On my last couple pictures, about 1/3 of the shots have been reframed in post.  Almost always for the better :)  Once in a while I'll even add post production stabilization to a shot if the imperfections are too distracting.

 

Since I'm deeply involved in the post production of the films, I've seen all the "before's and "after"s so no need to watch the video assist split screened!

Bruce;

Good info to know; I didn't expect Steadicam to be able to have input in post.

Thanks and I just figured everyone just had their video assist and the final product to compare, nothing so good as the edit stations.

Your work is amazing.

Thanks for the kind words Janice!

 

My recent projects are unusual in that I've been working as the DP, "b" cam op, and .... colorist.  When conforming the original shots to the edited reference movie I see every shot that's been repositioned.  While the last couple projects I haven't operated steadicam myself, the previous two I was both DP and Steadicam op,  which is really way too much to do at once!  

 

And, of course, when you do all these jobs yourself ...  there is no one else to blame.  Whatever it looks like, good or bad, I'm responsible. :)
