    Not long wrapped on a Feature Film, "Untitled Horror Film", which I Shot on my BMCC.

    Hopefully the first Feature to be Shot on BMCC in the UK, if not further afield.

    Synopsis:

    Heidi Slater, (Presenter / Journalist), desperate for her break, attempts to expose a celebrated Psychic, Tobias Danzig by leading a documentary film crew into the once infamous - now all but forgotten - 'Netherwood House' As they begin to capture strange phenomena, their Cameraman J.P. starts to shoot his own type of horror movie.

    These are ungraded low res frame grabs.

    Kit:

    BMCC - EF Mount

    Tokina 11-16 F2.8
    Tokina 20-35 F2.8
    Tokina 28-70 F2.6,2.8
    Tokina 50-135 F2.8
    All Nikon Mount
    Novoflex (with Iris) and Fotodiox Adapters

    Tiffen NDs

    Viewfactor Cage

    Lanparte Battery Pinch - note the supplied leads/cables absolutely did not fit the Camera DC in.
    Had to buy a Hawkwoods DTap to BMCC cable

    TV Logic Monitor

    An unfortunately very front heavy rig.

    A reasonable Lighting package - HMI, Kino, etc., though did end up using a lot of available light and, on several Shots, just SureFire torches and head torches.

    And, the essential, VERY SPOOKY HOUSE.

    Shot RAW at 25fps.

    Really enjoyed working with the Camera and it's simplicity.

    Very impressed with the Camera images.

    More info, stills and clips to follow.

    What about this ?

    Sci-fi Thriller 'Hero Punk' Shot with Blackmagic Cinema Camera

    the film is still in the final editing and finishing stages, Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve will be used for color grading

    Hey Neil:

    First off, congratulations on completing photography for your feature! That is something I have been talking about for years but haven't done (yet).

    I am actually in pre-production for a horror feature to be shot here in the States in the Fall. I have a BMCC, but I'm thinking of getting a Sony FS100 to shoot the movie because it will be almost all night exteriors and I'll need as much light as possible.

    By your still it looks like you shot a lot of low light scenes. What is your opinion? How did the BMCC do in the low light? How was the noise? Did you tackle any night exteriors?

    Any opinions would be appreciated!

    Thanks Brian.

    Yeah we Shot a lot of Low Light.

    The noise looks very organic and maybe Film Like?

    I think any any Feature Film you are probably going to do some noise reduction - regardless of the Camera used.

    Due to the nature of our Shoot, the premise - that the footage was to look like/give an impression of ENG Footage, though hopefully a bit more sexy and Cinematic - our footage may not be the best way to help you decide how you should go.

    We did Shoot night exteriors. For some I used a 2.5K HMI and a 1.2K HMI, for others I just used the SureFire Torches. Really depends on how wide and how much background you want in your night exteriors. Also, depends on how fast your Lenses are.

    You should try and Shoot some Tests.

    Neil.
