Baby Bird - Animatic Clip

A short clip form the developing animatic. This is one of the scenes where a stop motion butterfly will feature so planning it is vital to getting the action right.

Baby BIrd - Lens Tests

Along with Ross Gill (our DOP) we performed some quick lens tests on the Canon C100 with a range of vintage Chinon lenses, the Tokina 11-16, an anamorphic adapter, and Samyang Cine lenses. Surprisingly we are leaning toward using the old Chinon lenses with a cheap wide-angle adapter. We also went through some different gels, a china ball light and an Arri 2k.
