    We set the monitoring for 4k and hand the rest for look around... So on MX about 1/5 saved for stabbing... sometimes a bit more if needed for the transitions. Then on the LA material we recorded 6k with framing for 4k to have even more margin as we know the tractor scene would be done with quite low precision at shoot.

    That makes sense. I did something similar on this Skechers commercial with the look around and recomposing in post but it was all steadicam.

    Would you say that the Movi footage needed a lot of stabilization or only a little?

    I stablized quite a bit and yes a mövi will never ever provide the same stability as a steadycam with good operator or a steadycam with one or two axis gimbal, it ofcourse gets most visable for fast motion moves with objects close to camera. But we figured we wanted to try it, I done so many of these films with steady and the mövi is a bit more easy to handle and we thought we would be more over tables and such so for those reason we just went with the mövi. I ofcourse wanted both and use what was best for each shot... but then there is a producer as always :)

    Like the sketcher thing you did. Quite a few shots to match up :)

    Different DP's differnt lenses different sesnors and different filters in front of lens and indoor / exterior.. So there was not much that was keeped the same between the LA and stockholm shoot. And the Dragon material was shoot on higher ASA/ less exposure or poor blackshade as that material actually had far more noise in it. But in the end it's all so messed around with in post and one shot matched to to the next, then client input and down sampled to HD added grain etc. So then the difference of sensor is actually not a major difference. However I actually had our dragon on the stockholm shoot and shot some BTS stuff with it and seing it next to MX is quite amazing, the FOV and the DR and exceptional low light capabilites of dragon shines when shootiing side by side. It's like dragon looks good early during pre lighting then MX does not hold anything but noise but when all light levels and all are set they offcourse look quite the same, then the light span is covering the whole histogram of the MX and the bottom and top of the dragon is just not used.

    The moves are great but really it's the hidden edits that are impressive. Lots of planning and a great team no doubt. Would love if you could walk us through even one of the transitions.
