My four years old asked me to shoot some pictures with my Olympus C-5050.
I have tried to capture his first attempts in photography with the canon hv30 and a Kowa Bell&Howell 2x anamorphic lens.
This was slightly cropped to cut out vignetting and to give an almost 3:1 epic cinerama aspect ratio
Shot in 50i conformed to 25p.
Slight color grading with magic bullet looks.
Comments and advice are welcome as always.
Thanks for watching.
Thanks for your comments.
I wanted to experiment with anamorphic flares and give an overall hazy-dreamy look to the footage, but it may be true that I have overdone it a bit with flares. Especially the rhombus hv30 shutter is not that elegant.
I have no problems with the audio, maybe a vimeo encoding problem?
Anyway, I have some more anamorphics so hopefully more footage to come.
Excellent footage. Very quiet, very nice.
I was wondering at the end where it says "Copyright K Prod," etc. did you really copyright this video? Just wondering because I was going to put a few copyrights on my work, but I think last I checked it was $30 a video, and--well--I'm super cheap, and no one has stolen my stuff (yet!).
I feel like a newbie asking this but how do you achieve 1280 by 432 video without squishing the picture?
This was shot with a 2x anamorphic lens. Such lens squeezes the image so as to get "twice as much" field of view horizontally while keeping vertical fov as is. You have to unsqueeze then in post. The Kowa Bell Howell leads to an almost 3.56:1 aspect ratio which is even wider, but here has been cropped a bit and resized to cut out vignetting. That is why I have an almost 3:1 epic aspect ratio (like Ben Hur shot in cinerama ).

Well, actually I didn't. This is only a home video
However, if you happen to have more information about the process and the cost of copyrighting please drop me a pm or post something in this forum. I would be interested too.
