    Just on question, it looks like there are a lot of shots slightly out of focus. Was it due to the softness of the lenses? Mostly on the ITW sequence at the beginning.


    Thanks

    No, a camera assistant I hadn't worked with before and the majority of the shots on Steadicam... Unfortunate, but it happens.

    Orion's look great.

    Care to share how many days/locations this was?

    Thanks in advance
    Was a 3-day shoot. We had one day at a house in the San Fernando Valley in LA. Another day on stage where we built some sets, and then a day at a high school.

    I never use diffusion on the lens... That said, most music videos go through "beauty" cleanup, which is some vfx house cleaning up any blemishes the artist may have... Also negating the logic of using diffusion unless there's other reasons for wanting to add a filter... like glowing the highlights around practicals or something. Otherwise, I try to model the light as optimally as I can, use soft sources and always watch for any shadows on faces.

    I just want to say thank you Chris for giving back to the community so much knowledge from all of these shoots. Warms my heart in a way. :)

    Awesome. How'd you like the Orions? I'm definitely curious why you went with them versus more high end lenses.

    Question though, what was up with the audio in the dialogue scene? sounded pretty scratchy with a super heavy gate on it..
