Day 3 in Santiago!

Day 03 Santiago. Shooting today in an underground car park at Hoyts Cinema Complex. Lots of motion control for the effects and layers. VFX department on set very happy with ARRIRAW and uncompressed. The Production has now seen the quality of the RAW image and our wokflows for delivering it on set and are looking to shoot in July for 6-8 weeks. This is a tremendous first for the Chile market and everyone involved is extremely excited to be shooting RAW for the first time.

Day 2 in Santiago!

Day 02 Santiago, Chile. We shot on location at an underground carpark in central Santiago. Lots of ARRIRAW and motion control shooting with full technical debayer for select shots with all rushes being archived to Lacie drives via eSata. We can record fully matched Master (ARRIRAW) and Proxy/Offline (ProRes via onboard SxS card recording) together with matched timecode and trigger all the recordings from the Alexa. Editorial on set to see the workflow discussing the proxy/offline (probably ProRes 4444) and our requirements for conform. Full 3D print emulation LUTs are being used created by Light Illusion and all is going very well so far. Day 03 starts in one hour. Dan Mulligan PDS Chile.

Santiago, Chile!

Day One, Santiago, Chile. Testing the ARRIRAW equipment for indoor and outdoors. OB1 working well with live debayer, LUTs and full timecode sync to the Alexa with new Alexa recording trigger for the OB1 allowing for timecode accurate ARRIRAW with ProRes Proxies/offline and allows simultenious recording of both the OB1/ARRIRAW and ProRes at exactly the same time, which is really cool.
Everyone is excited by this and its the first ever ARRIRAW shooting for Chile. More to come. Dan Mulligan Pure Digital Services
