Chapter: Image Acquisition
Topic: Shooting Video to look like Film
What follows, as in all things artistic, is born out of my own personal taste – but my views and techniques are from actual experience. A couple of years ago I won an Award for the Photographing a video “short” called ‘The Extinguisher!’. The ‘film’ was shot on Betacam SP using a JVC KY-35 camera docked with a Sony BVV-5 back-end recorder. Although the 700 lines/picture width KY-35 gave greatly defined video pictures, I used some techniques to make the video pictures less electronic and more like film.
