Tomorrow I lead team 'Bad A 5k' in the Portland 48hr film competition, my first time trying this since 2005 and first time using a Red Epic as the camera! Doing this with fellow Reduser Ryan E Walters as my DP and William Schultz as editor/post sup. We're doing this without any RR because none of us own one, wish us luck :-D. I'll post back with how it goes down.
And thank goodness for T1.8 RPPs, we're going to be in an abandoned hotel with only a Honda eu2000i outside :-)
Update Saturday Night: shooting went super well! We wrapped by 9am this morning and handed off hdd to William for edit by 11am. Thanks to Troy Ruff, our DIT, he had a Premiere project already created with all audio synced up!! William was able to get right to work. He just finished the final locked cut and now our post sound team can take over. Ryan Walters knocked it out of the park as DP. We really created 3 distinct visual looks as the short progresses, using a combination of deliberate focal length changes and filtration (clean - Hollywood Black Magic - Antique Suede). Hopefully he'll blog about all the awesomeness he got into on this.
Update Sunday: Wow! It's all in the team. William Schultz hit the edit out of the park, then our sound post and composing team came in and nailed it. This morning I met up with William and Ryan for a full grade in Resolve. Note, drinking mimosas while doing an 11am Sunday grade makes the process kinda awesome :-). We finished in great time and submitted. Epic + Adobe with a an editor who knows what he's doing made for a fantastic Epic 48hr experience.
Update! We won 1st place out of 56 total teams! Here's a writeup of the win http://www.opb.org/artsandlife/artic...rtland-winner/
