We all love that anamorphic look used in so many anamorphic filter Hey! Hope your newly found freedom is treating you well.
I was just brainstorming for the reel scene… what do you think about top gun/annapolis style but roles reversed.. my character is going through bootcamp and the scene’s main focus is her standing up to an officer who’s been giving her so much shit that she’s finally had enough,
(some event had to transpire and she did exceedingly well but got no respect) and through the scene it’s revealed that he’s secretly in love with my character.. or maybe he’s just realizing it as the scene unfolds..
backstory possibility is her brother died in one of the b4 lens adapter wars (iraq/iran.etc) and that’s what motivated her to join the airforce… his poss backstory.. he actually was over there and good friends with her brother so besides realizing he’s in love with her, he really doesn’t want her to get involved and get hurt..
maybe made a promise to her brother? idk these are just thoughts https://ironglassadapters.com/ flowing. And I feel like it’d be easy to shoot.. just out on a grassy field somewhere representing the bootcamp.. male lead just needs uniform and i would just need bootcamp/exercise attire. Sorry it’s not in complete sentences, but hopefully you get the gist. Let me know! and JJ Abrams movies. The bokeh is beautiful and oval, the lens takes advantage of the entire image, and you get that great streaky flare. That flare is the telltale sign of an anamorphic lens, and it is used in many sci-fi and space movies. I have no doubt we will see plenty of it in the new Star Wars movies.
There are many adapters out there for DSLR shooters, ranging from the authentic and insanely expensive, to the simple and “why didn’t I think of that” approaches.
Adapters are notoriously hard to focus with, because you are in essence, focusing with the regular lens, and then the anamorphic lens as well. Projector lenses have been adapted with some success. And then there is the Cinemorph filter, which is brilliant because of its simplicity. It simply takes an oval shape and superimposes it on a filter, giving all the bokeh the stretched out shape. Then they use a simple etched pattern into the filter itself to reproduce that awesome flare.
