A Day With Philip Bloom, Hot Rod Cameras and Hdi RAW Works.

March 4th, 2010

Philip Bloom is in Los Angeles for a Master Class with Hdi RAW Works, March 6th, 2010. I was lucky enough to be invited to help test out the new Hot Rod Cameras PL Mount 7D. We met at Hollywood Park at 4:30am to catch the horses at the stables and on the track. Philip Bloom, Illya Friedman from Hot Rod Cameras, Neil Smith, Jeremy Ian Thomas , his sidekick “Bobby” all from Hdi RAW Works, Chuck Linkes from Litepanels and myself were all there at the crack of dawn. Everyone was Super Cool.  The Cooke S4 Lenses and Canon Rebel T2i were supplied from Birns and Sawyer, Hollywood.

I came up with the crazy idea of strapping a Canon Rebel T2i to the Jockey and let him go around the track at full gallup. Jose the jockey agreed to operate the camera. Philip supplied the Sigma Fisheye Lens, Chuck Linkes did the camera rigging. Jeremy Ian Thomas hooked up the color. This little Rebel T2i is one badass camera.  It actually worked. It was shot with a Canon Rebel T2i, a Sigma Fisheye Lens, 100 ISO T5.6 at 24fps.

Very nice.

Reminds me of a shot from the 1967 Soviet film adaptation of “War and Peace.” Only that was with a 70mm film camera!

Interesting perspective, but the jello from these cameras in action shooting like this leaves a lot to be desired.

I’m sure it was fun, but something has to change with respect to the sensor readout to make footage like this more appealing.

Thanks for your help and enthusiasm yesterday, Jared …. it really turned out to be a blast watching all you shooters running around with your Canons in all that horse shit … your crazy idea of strapping a T2i to that jockey was a sheer stroke of genius …. end result was amazing.

Looking forward to Saturday’s Master Class with PB … can’t wait toi see what we shot yesterday, edited, color corrected and projected on the big screen.

Great day yesterday …. let’s do it again!
