Some frames from our little pick-up shoot. We shot in an abandoned hospital in Boyle Heights for a dream sequence where Jack Kerouac imagines a community of "Vulturemen" and sees an image of the Cross. I basically had three lights (1.2K HMI PAR, Source-4 HMI, and a Kinoflo) and we used house power, and a lot of available light as well. We used a Red One, 4K 2:1, recorded to CF cards. 800 ASA to 1600 ASA, 3600K setting, 50% desaturation. I mostly alternated between a 16mm UltraPrime and my Lensbaby. I used a #1/4 Double Fog filter -- and I sprinkled some water on the filter before every take, flicked it on with my fingers.
The RAW files show more highlight detail but I was aiming for a lot of blown-out detail and added a lot of contrast to the stills, plus additional diffusion:
You aren't likely to just find a random extra 3 strip backup somewhere. If you make 300 LTO copies for the price of one optical copy you can hand them out as party favors. That is seriously more resilient than one expensive three strip backup.
