‘A Night in Nine Elms’ – new Blackmagic Cinema Camera short

by planetMitch5 Comments

New Blackmagic Cinema Camera short called “A Night in Nine Elms” hits the streets to show the capabilities of doing basically a one man shoot and some serious night time work.

There’s definitely some serious dynamic range going on here, but what do you think? How’s the grain in the title sequence with the bridge? And this is very ‘sharp’ (make sure to download the original size on vimeo!). I also didn’t see any examples of the black spot problem seen in earlier footage.

‘A Night in Nine Elms’



A project commissioned by Blackmagic Design to shoot a film for the 2012 European roadshow tour.

All shot in ProRes FILM to demonstration workflow with FCPX.
