I just wanted to share with you guys my Cinefade experience.
For a commercial the DP wanted to create a dreamy effect, a close-up of the talent and backround lights becomming more glowy.
Setting up the Cinefade during the test took me some time, espescially because i dont read manuals, and this particular things needs reading the manual!
I used a Tangerine Misfit Mattebox, because it takes 2 filtertrays to use the Cinefade.
I daisy chained the Cinefade with the mini motor in the iris and the iris with the RF motor.
When setting up, i mapped the lens. Focus and iris.
An important question, who is going to do the Cinefade effect. The DP, or the 1st, or maybe your 2nd.....if its a hard shot to focus on, you dont want to do it yourself.
In my case, i assignd it to my 2nd. So i used 2 handunits.
Both on the same channel, and using the knob for the Cinefade. And on my own unit using the knob for focus.
Setting up on set takes about 5 minutes.
The very most important thing, the DP has to understand there is a starting t-stop. The higher the number, the better and more visible the effect.
In this case, f5.6 on a 50mm Leica Summicron.
My 2nd pulled the Cinefade from f5.6 to f2 during the shot.
The effect was, in this particular case, more of a feeling. Not super visible but it did change the feel and look of the shot. And, if you would ask me, exactly the right look for this shoot.
This first experience, surprised me in how easy to use (after reading the manual!) And how subtile and beautyfull the effect is on a close-up.
