Hey guys. I recently ran into this amazing work by NABIL
He directed this new "Short Film" like for a music video
Anthony and Johnsons - Cut The World

http://youtu.be/U9a1C1​qXHfM (external link)

Would love to know if you guys can tell me how to achieve that look. I know he's probably using a RED or another non DSLR camera. But I'm sure there's a way to at least get a similar look like that.

My primary setup (gear)
5D Mark II + 50mm f/1.4 + 85mm f/1.4 + 35mm f/1.4
(Flaat Picture Style or Canon Neutral Style "-4,-4,-2,0" for both)
I use Premiere. But for Music Videos/Short Films I like to use FCP 7. I also Color Grade inside FCP 7 Using Colorista II
I'd really like to have something similar to this. I'm really into cinematography and short films. This is definitely the look I'm looking for.

If any can help. I'd appreciate it.

I'm confused, what "look" are you talking about? The color grading? It looks like he just used an ultra flat picture style (like Technicolor Cinestyle for Canon) then just desaturated it and added some selective high contrast/high saturation areas (the eye close-ups) with masks. He layered film grain and a 2.35 aspect ratio mask over the final video.

Or are you talking about the timelapse clouds outside the window? If I were to guess i'd say he covered the outside of the window with chroma-green and keyed it out in post, then layered a timelapse from outside behind it and used a 3D Camera tracker to track the movement of the camera.

Look meaning color grading. That really clean flat look. I've been trying to get that same look.

I 'chatted' with the Director. He's not very good at responding with long sentences through email. He used an Alexa so I know it's not a DSLR.

But thanks. I'll see what I can pull off!

Color grading for film is a whole art in itself, and there are several people for who it is full time work. While there may be few locally, you should be able to find colorists in NYC or on the web. Obviously your example is an excellen and high budget production.

if you just getting starting in Color Grading try out Magic Bullet Looks they have some pre sets that may have the "look" your going after

I'm not just getting started with Color Grading. I'm familiar with a lot of Color Grading tools.
The colorist just did an amazing job on this video. That it wowed me.

How do you add a 2.35 aspect ration on the 16:9 produced by the camera?
