Winter in Central Park, NYC: Canon Eos 7D

Winter in Central Park, NYC: Canon Eos 7D: 720/60p from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

Not very often do we get so much snow here in the city, packed my 7D, a few lenses, small tripod, bean bag and headed to the park. I should really call this a weather proofing test, the gear was soaking wet after about 10min. Changing lenses was a challenge, I ended up using the Tokina 12-24mm and the Nikon 75-150mm (still my fav compact tele lens). No problems with the Camera body and/or lenses. Everything was shot with auto white balance, neutral color settings at 720/60p, Iso ranging from 200 to 400. Grading has been kept to a minimum, only contrast enhancement, no color correction. Music:

Synopsis: Frank goes on the run when his “investment” takes an unexpected turn. SUN-ARC PICTURES B/W RT 16;00 min ©2010 Written and Directed by Dikayl RImmasch. Starring Jason Alan Griffin and Sid Williams. I really dig this short “film noir” flick. Dikayl has been shooting with the Canon 5D2 since its introduction. Dikayl: ” This film was shot on 35,s16, and 16mm. Ilford stock. Unsupervised ransfers to SD (digibeta) which was hit and miss. The ending shot was composited from color stock using blue screen and a background plate shot from the Bay bridge,CA. Subway sequence was created from several locations and a train set peice. Working simultaneously right now on color correction from another film (5d mark 2 footage) and it really strikes me how much of a problem the jello is when shooting action sequences. *Oh, and we waited two days for the pigeons…”
