Hi again everyone! Tim Cash of Far from Earth Films and Far From Earth Creative here in Bend Oregon. Well had the chance to put my new RED Scarlet to the test as it arrived just days before 2 BIG Music video shoots for Jamaican pop sensation Omi. We shot one of the videos at regular speed 24fps at 4k and it looks gorgeous! But the other music video I wanted to try something a little different. In the past I’ve experimented with variable frame rates for singing shots. shooting at 36fps and having the talent sing the song at a sped up 150% and I’ve also done 18fps. and had them sing to the song at 75%. when put into a 24 fps timeline each look is different but adds drama. slowmo singing or sped up singing. but this was the first time I decided to shoot an entire music video at 12fps. and have the singer sync to a 50% slowed down version of the song.then edit at 24fps. the result is a highly animated sped up look and we got away with 5k on the Scarlet! not stills but video. I’m sure someone has shot 5k video on the Scarlet but anyway….we are releasing the video today and I’ll be sure to post it up on this post as soonas we release it!!
Just pulled the new RED SCARLET X CAMERA out of the box and started filming. the dynamic range is amazing. especially coming from the 5d. things look sharper and more detailed. the shadows show through amazing. what would have been totally lost is right there infront of your eyes. Anyway with no one nearby to capture I turned the camera on myself and recorded this in 6 takes from 6 different angles. and that pretty much filled up the new 64GB card and I was off to the edit! let me know what you think! have a wonderful day from Tim Cash at Far from Earth films
