Our latest short “Free Fall” now full length and HD on YouTube

Youtube has updated our account to “no limits”, so we at Marvels Film were finally able to upload our 43 gig, 25 minute, 1080p short movie “Free Fall” (Dutch: Vrije Val). Winner of the Audience Honorable Mention at the Los Angeles Movie Awards 2010.

Free Fall is a short silent movie – music only – about HIV, Aids and prejudice. For this indie production we used a mix of Sony PMW-EX1 with RedrockMicro DOF adapter,  PMW-EX3 and Canon 7D footage.

March Hardware Testdrive on My Quest for the Perfect DOF adapter, and the Redrock Encore!

March Hardware Testdrive coming up: DOF adapters

m2e dof adapter marvels film martin beekThis month’s Hardware Testdrive is the result of one year of struggling with a number of top-shelf DOF adapters. It will also encompass different reviews, all merged into one. This extensive article will be ready some time the third week of march and will include many pictures and example footage.

I shot three productions in 2009 – one short movie and two music videos – for which we either bought or rented four different DOF adapters for our Sony EX-1 camera. The Brevis, the SGBlade, the Letus Extreme and the Redrock Micro M2E.

Some results and experiences were disastrous, which made 2009 a very expensive year in the camera department…

Read all about it soon..!

Cheers, martin.
