Know your limitations

This version of Klimpt's The Kiss is from.

A review of the Letus Nikon mount. I got this mount. It seems to work pretty well. Although I can focus past infinity with these, I believe that does not indicate any backfocus issues and I should be fine. The flare seems to be a bit more than from the Canons though.

So I think I'm going to go with only two lenses on this whole movie: a 35mm f1.4 and an 85mm f1.4 (and an E2 extension for macro closeups.) Sometimes it's nice to limit your options and I love the idea of shooting a feature with 2 (or, arguably, 2.5) lenses. That's a nice limitation. It'll certainly make decisions about what lens to use easier! ;-)

We've been fitting people in costumes. Last looks are tomorrow and Friday night. Then we shoot on Saturday.

Looks like resetting the pram on the Mac did the trick and FCP is stable again. What a pain in the neck that was. The PC has been immunized against whatever virus was bothering it. I think I have like 4 anti-spyware/malware/virus programs running on it right now.

I think Cronenberg shot all of History Of Violence on one lens (a 24mm maybe), and that movie looks great.

Also, I think Wes Anderson shoots 98% of his stuff with an anamorphic 50mm.

Nothing wrong with keeping it simple.
