We don’t usually feature straight cinematography work on Motionographer. However, what Director/DP Phillip Bloom was able to capture on Canon 5D and 7D DSLR’s during his 5-day stay at the Skywalker Ranch is so beautifully shot and full of inspiration that we just had to share it.
At the home of George Lucas, with Lucusfilm Producer Rick McCallum and Head of Post-Production Mike Blanchard, Bloom was faced with only one mission: show them how to get the best out of the Canon 5D Mark II and the Canon 7D.
This epic, 7-minute short film goes well beyond that with one jaw-drop after another. Philip Bloom’s blog post on the shoot is also a useful guide into his process and gear.
With this level of quality coming from the new breed of DSLRs, this undoubtedly changes the game for studios of all shapes and sizes and their creation of high-end live action.
For a fitting example, check out Prologue’s beautiful use of the Canon 5D in this motion test for the Sherlock Holmes main title (via Art of the Title.)
