I'm completely sold on this combination of tools.
Here is my latest work.

Sorry, I don't get it. What does a blond girl singing have to do with the EX-3, Nano and Red Rock. Couldn't this have been shot with anything? Not trying to be rude here just a little confused. Great music video though!

I guess you haven't read my first post on how impressed I was working with all of these tools. I don't think you could create this look without these extra tools added to the EX3 and if I didn't post the link to the video then it would be pointless. Not rude at all Ron, I believe in first hand information and seeing it.
So much of this forum is teaching those that can't read a manual, I like to offer an example of what's possible. Sorry if you are offended by my original post.

Michael, the fact that this is shot on an EX-3 is a real testament to your skills (and your kit). Details on technical and production methodology please?

Very nice work Michael. Did you you a tilt/shift lens on some of those shots or was that done in post? I've got a lensbaby for that kind of thing, but haven't used it much yet.

Do you do your own grading? If so, do you care to share your picture profile recipe?

Thanks Bob,

I did participate in grading this video, however the Director didn't me allow to go to far with contrast, or at least as much as I would have liked. And by the time I has allowed in on this processes I didn't have the time necessary to add the vignettes I wanted.

I was told I needed beauty light for this artist and so I used a technic from a commercial (starring Jennifer Garner that I worked on a few years back) and found a large still camera umbrella that I put a Mole Richardson Mighty Mole into with 1/2 CTB, hoping to avoid the IR issue as her vest was black. So I had a beautiful large soft source as my base light to work with, and I wanted to create a look with a combination of colorful saturation together with movement.

And no I didn't have swing and shift lenses, this was done in post.

OK I know I said I would post this on the first EX3/Nano and Red Rock Encore posting but never did.
My picture profile for this video.
Matrix- On, Cinema, Level +20, Phase 0, R-G -10, R-B -7, G-R -2, G-B +7, B-R +0, B-G +0
Color Correction- Off
White- 5600
Detail- On, Level (using Red Rock Encore) -0, (Stock Lens) -30, Crispening +20,
Skin Detail- Off
Gamma- Level +0, Cine 4,
Black -3
Black Gamma +10

I will say I pushed the capabilities of this camera to the edge and found that I should have shot a few scenes in 60p as I had strobing from (overcranking 24p to 48) the large group little PAR lights back lighting the sheer curtains when she was dancing with the men. Going into this I knew I needed a solid stop to work with so we could crush the image later without to much noise.

It was a great opportunity and the crew in Nashville was outstanding, I had never worked with any of these professionals and each and every one of them gave their best. I had guys on ladders moving lights threw the shots, I had 2 guys working the dimmer board manually and guys pre-lighting and move dolly track constantly, it was a very ambitious day.

This combination of EX3, Nano, Red Rock Encore is simply awesome.

I'm surprised Ron hasn't commented of the song.

Michael
