Guess Which Camera This Was Shot On!

We filmmakers sometimes get caught up in what cameras were used to shoot various things.  What it was edited on.  What was used to color it.  There are several high-exposure people/companies with well-done camera comparisons on the internet…some of the asking us to guess which camera was used to shoot the material.  I make comparisons and try to decipher which camera is used all the time!

Besides it’s fun to compare…it’s in our nature to do so!  5D vs RED.  ARRI vs. GENESIS.  MAC vs. PC.  FREDDY vs. JASON.

But sometimes I need to get back to the foundation of what I do and what inspires me.

Here are three short films every filmmaker should watch.  You can do so while having your morning cup of joe, or right before tackling a project for some inspiration.  Three short films that puts it into perspective, at least for me.

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..

So what camera were these shot on?  A 5d?  A RED?  35?  iPhone?  Its capturing the enjoyment of life.  It’s all about what plucks the right nerve, and evokes emotion in the audience.  The recipe of so many things to make one perfect dish.

So what camera were these shot on?

Who cares?
