Update - Camera Tests

This past week, the team went on an exciting camera test at Abel Cine, a film rental place in New York. We tested out two cameras which we're currently choosing between - the Sony F55 and the Red EPIC. Both cameras have their advantages, and we tried out both cameras with different lenses and filters.

Since our characters will be wearing uniforms, we made sure to test the cameras against a model wearing an army uniform leant to us by our advisor Emir. 

After getting all our footage, we brought it into the computer. In this program, we played around with color correction, saturation, and contrast. This is just an example, but for the actual film, we'll be working with our post house Light Iron to professionally color correct to apply a consistent, interesting look for the film.
