Steve Yedlin's film emulation in digital imagery (1 reply and 8 comments)
I wanted to post this conversation.
Here is the original reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/Filmmakers/comments/40812r/steve_yedlins_obsessive_film_emulation/»
Here is Yedlin's video page: http://www.yedlin.net/DisplayPrepDemo/#»
And here is his conversation with Mario Carvalhal: http://www.yedlin.net/160105_edit.html»
Very logical reasoning.
Very very impressive. It's prtrty obvious which is which but it's still the most impressive film emulation i've seen. Probably, for the next weeks I will spend a lot of time trying to figure out how he did that, and a lot of money for film stock...
...after watching several times, a though crept into my mind...could be placebo, and both are shot digital...
I'd be interested to know your thoughts as to which is which.
If there is any real stock there, should be: 9483896, 9463913, 3598134, 7375912, 1243491, 2414970, 4200437 ...but i still think there are just two different emulations...no real film.
No. There is some real film stock being used here. Look closely at the highlights.
As well as some wobble in the 35mm film image.
Film: 9483896, 9463913, 2455292, 5341876, 7375912, 6929771, 0096311, 9722163. (Numbers from the single shots -- not side by side)
Yedlin himself talks about adding subtle gate weave to the digital to as a sort of "cherry on top" to finish the emulation.
