We filmed this up in Maine and had a blast. This was at an old barn that has been converted for functions. The interior of the barn was illuminated by hundred of candles lining the rafters. It had incredible charm and warmth on a warm July night. The ceremony was down a wooden boardwalk that led into the woods towards a clearing. I was super nervous finally using the Blackmagic Cinema Camera 2.5k emount for my first full wedding. So glad that I did. The footage is midblowingly cinematic and awesome. So worth the extra work and fineness.
Filmed on a BMCC 2.5k in pro res cinema. Sunlight shots used a Tiffen variable ND filter. Most shots on a manfroto monopod. A piece of gear that continues to gets people excited. Not as easy as a dslr, but you can make it work with some practice. Direct sunlight shots made it had to see the screen, but the focus marks are enough to get a focus even open to a 1.4f. Totally doable. I am excited by the footage. It really does blow away dslr stuff. And I love the look of dslr video with good glass.
Graded in Davinci and added great starting Lut: captainhook.co.nz/blackmagic-cinema-camera-lut/
A few wide shots on a Canon 7D. All bride prep shots (not shown here) I used the 7d to not have to film a mile away. It would be hard to film in real tight spots.
Edit in FCPX.
I can’t wait to show all the other shots in the full movie. Till then- enjoy!
