A couple of stills from Sunday's shoot.

Here are those stills I promised yesterday...

As you might guess, this thing is a period piece.

My only regret--we didn't have any blue gels to cool off our "moonlight." Still, I'm happy with the lighting. We managed to set it up so we could get wide shots and close-ups without moving any lights.

Also, I'm noticing that Apple changed their video gamma settings for Mac OS ver. 10.6 ("Snow Leopard"). Arrgh.

Hey, neato. I want a three-cornered hat.

Be then thou pleased with the gamma change. It is vastly better, I assure you. It's the reason I moved up to Snow Leopard.

Snow Leopard's gamma is closer to NTSC. But better than that -- the gamma matches no matter what application you're in.

We used to have a devil of a time color-correcting with the older OS when Final Cut Pro was one gamma and Magic Bullet Looks was another.

I promise you'll be pleased once you get used to it. Plus your DVD's will look more like what you're seeing on your monitor. Everybody wins! ;-)

And I love the tri-cornered hats! Oh man, I can't wait to see this movie!

Yeah, I'm in the process of changing my other Macs to the "new" gamma. It does seem to be closer to my TV. Unfortunately, it is darker than the LCD on my Canon 7D, so I'll have to get used to that.

As for the period stills, they're from a 30-second commercial, not a whole movie. Though shooting the commercial was so much fun, Chuck and I have started thinking about making a period flick. Maybe something Hammer-ish...
