Just picked up the incredibly affordable Aivascope 1.5x anamorphic. I must say WOW - this thing is killer. Incredibly lightweight, organic image, built in single focus system, and great close focus at 2ft.

Just shot this on it with my trust vintage Nikon 50mm 1.8 Most of these shots are wide open, or pretty close to it

For $2500...this setup can't be beat!

Run and Gun shoot with limited crew - myself and my trust AC. Only used a bounce - because that's all we had. With limited budget, you can still make movie magic.

I did the post and grade on it as well. Enjoy
